154: Diversity, Digital Transformation & Navigating Changes at Work with Dr. Soliman

As a physician, scientist, MBA, and certified life coach, Dr. Soliman is a self-described lifelong learner. One important lesson he’s learned is that, as leaders, we make many energy-depleting decisions throughout the day. This impacts our ability to operate at peak performance. In this episode, he teaches: 1) why we should focus on energy management instead of time management, 2) why we should beware of cognitive dissonance, and 3) how diversity, inclusion, and fast-paced technologies impact our mental health. Dr. Soliman also shares his 3-phase process for helping people navigate these changes to achieve the best outcome, which ultimately is a win for them, their companies, and their customers!
