Episode 6 – Arthur Woods on Shifting Our Mindset and Unlocking the Power of Human Potential

In this episode, Arthur Woods and I discuss how 2020 has taught us that we must be human-centered and shift our inner narrative to reshape our priorities. He shares what’s possible when we unlock the power of human potential, anchor on our purpose and create workplaces where EVERYONE feels like they can meaningfully contribute and make an impact - especially among people with disabilities and other underrepresented communities. And we talk about mindset shifts that help us wake-up and show up as leaders to influence positive change. Arthur is a dynamo leader taking a systems-focused approach to bring about impactful change and address biases that prevent inclusivity in our workplaces. I walked away energized and having greater hope for humanity and hope you feel the same.
