Conscious Leadership with Eric Kaufmann
This episode made me want to unleash my meanest wolf right in the middle of my morning commute. Why did Marshall feel the need to give the financial status and educational background for every single case sample mentioned? It was ridiculous. I stopped counting at 12. Nobody cares where the poor sad published millionaire got their PhD. These people are not getting coached to be happy, they are getting coached to be richer and more powerful, duh.
Despite his talk of reading 400 Buddhist books (is he sure it wasn’t 312? Or .04? ) he was so bedazzled by his elitist world of corporate jackasses that his occasional bits of wisdom fell flat. He even lessened my compassion for the sad guy that has it all. Maybe his ilk should stop the self-discovery and get over themselves, lest it lead to self-indulgent narcissism. I cannot even imagine this guy at a party, name dropping like a hollywood hanger-on hooking up with a starlet. I think I would spill my drink on his shoe. Poppycock.
I still the love the podcast. Just had to vent, thanks!
