Our guest today is Craig Dowden, Ph.D., expert in integrating evidence-based principles from the fields of positive psychology with those in leadership, and organizational excellence. He helps his clients develop real-life solutions to solve their greatest challenges. Craig is an inspiring and thought-provoking Executive Coach, Forbes author, and Keynote Speaker who bridges the gap between what science knows and what leaders do. Craig partners with leaders to tackle their most important personal and organizational challenges.
Craig holds a Doctorate in psychology, with a concentration in business and is a Certified Positive Psychology Coach. In his role as a trusted advisor, he integrates the latest findings in the science of leadership, team, and organizational excellence into his coaching and consulting work.
In his thought-provoking new book, Do Good to Lead Well: The Science and Practice of Positive Leadership, Craig explores the Six Pillars of Positive Leadership:
Self-Awareness | Civility | Humility | Focus on the Positive | Meaning and Purpose | Empathy
His message is that success comes not when we sacrifice our integrity and values, but when we stay true to our own internal compass and morals. When we do good, we achieve more, and oftentimes, far more than we ever thought possible.
