    Exploring Happiness, Leadership, and Self-Ownership with Olivier Egli: Discovering the Power of Storytelling and Intention

    Exploring Happiness, Leadership, and Self-Ownership with Olivier Egli: Discovering the Power of Storytelling and Intention

    What happens when you sit around a bonfire, sharing stories, and reconnecting with your true self? Olivier Egli, founder at Why Story and the brain behind the Bonfire Exchange, takes us on a journey of discovery, revealing how leaders can create unified teams bonded over shared narratives rather than mere business objectives. This episode invites you to examine your own story and unravel the ways in which it can transform your leadership style.

    Have you ever wondered about the correlation between personal happiness and your true nature? Olivier Egli provokes us to explore this idea, shedding light on his own journey of choosing contentment over a high-paying job. We take on the conventional concepts of happiness and perfection, showcasing how growth and appreciating every moment are actually the keys to unlocking our true potential. The discussion then steers towards self-ownership, and the significance of embracing the scars and pain that life inevitably presents.

    As we navigate through the world of storytelling and intention in business, Olivier offers some intriguing insights. He illustrates how Steve Jobs created an unparalleled value with Apple products by focusing on the intention behind them, rather than purely on market capitalization. We challenge the notion of giving as a means of bringing systemic change to society, drawing parallels from the wisdom of our elders and the interconnectedness of an ancient forest. Wrapping up our enriching conversation, we explore the balance between personal and professional growth, and how embracing our true nature can lead to authentic happiness. Join us for this enlightening discussion, packed with invaluable life and leadership lessons.

    Enjoy 🙏
