Why compassionate leadership is the key to a healthy workplace with Dr. Loizzo

Episode Summary

Dr. Joe Loizzo, co-author of Boundless Leadership, shares how we can use science-based mindfulness practices to transform workplaces into more compassionate environments by pivoting from stress-fueled leadership styles to a kind of leadership that focuses on co-creating psychologically safe and meaningful relationships at work.

Episode Notes

Derik Mills speaks with Dr. Joe Loizzo, co-author, with Elazar Aslan, on their new business book Boundless Leadership. Leadership is traditionally tied to stress and assumptions about stress. Dr. Joe Loizzo, psychotherapist, clinical researcher, and Buddhist scholar-teacher, speaks with Derik about pivoting from stress-fueled leadership styles to a kind of leadership that focuses on co-creating psychologically safe and meaningful relationships at work. 

The workplace is where we spend most waking hours, and business has become, as Dr. Loizzo says, the dominant force on the planet. It’s time to reexamine how it is shaping us and how we can shape it so we can experience more compassion and fulfillment through our work. 

In this conversation, Dr. Loizzo reveals their science-based vision of leadership grounded in current neuroscience and contemplative practices. Their systematic roadmap provides methods of training the mind that is secular, tradition neutral, such that anyone can use them to help transform our mind, body, and brain.
