Our lives are often times built around the work that we do with recent society trends pushing us to be “busy” every hour of the day and creating a stigma of failure or poor leadership when we aren’t. Our guest today Dan Pontefract is calling out this behaviour using his decades of experience in the corporate world to highlight the hypocritical and unhealthy behaviours being found in leadership roles. Dan leads Greg and Dave on a laughter-filled, but thought-provoking discovery where he explains what the work he is doing and the goal of the books he has written is. Dan wants to help people understand that slowing down, taking time to think and being driven by a purpose will lead not only to a productive life, but to overall happiness we should all be striving for.
