Dr. Steven Segal was a popular lecturer at Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM) where he taught postgraduate MBA students for more than 20 years. His classes were highly sought after and I was fortunate to attend one of them.
In this episode , Steven and I talk about the ancient history of purpose discovery, how an increasingly individualistic world affects our mental health and relationships, the relationship between self-actualization and purpose, the limitation of solution-focused thinking in the context of finding our purpose, how to work with anxiety and depression. During our conversation, Steven also shares interesting stories about Ian Thorpe, Nelson Mandela and Robert De Niro.
Are you on the journey or off the journey? This is a question Steven likes to ask himself.
I am honoured to have this chat with Steven. It is thought-provoking.
Steven is a professor and psychologist, he is passionate about combing his psychological approach with a practical philosophical lens to help individuals and organisation change.
