Episode #9 - being Optimistic with Jeff Stuit (32m‪)‬ EnterpriseJoy

    • Management

Optimism, it's one of those unspoken qualities that differentiates a leader from the crowd. Where other's see failure, optimists see opportunity. Where others see chaos, optimists see self organisation. And where others see end, optimists see new beginnings. I came face to face with one such leader in this podcast, Jeff Stuit, the founder of Improvement School. He recently published his book "An Agilist in India", which he wrote while being stuck in a hotel room, 7000 miles away from his home, in-between a nationwide lockdown down & a hurricane; and his stories had me gripped. I consider myself an optimist but Jeff showcases extreme optimism and this talk with him was a profound experience for me. We discussed everything from spirituality to music and I was stunned to how he related every experience as a learning that one could take-away as a human being. This episode is not just an education in being an optimist, it's a showcase of an optimistic leader and the difference it can make in an organisation. I'm your host Vishal Prasad and this is EnterpriseJoy, educating organisations to be awesome!
