Yesterday I interviewed my friend, Dr. John Izzo, about his new book, Stepping Up: How Taking Responsibility Changes Everything. I always enjoy talking with John, but I also have a hint of concern that I will feel judged. His books have titles like, “The Purpose Revolution,” and “Awakening Corporate Soul,” and “Stepping Up,” so I expect a little finger-wagging and soapboxing.
But it never happens. Unlike so much of the distressed and misplaced passion we see in our world today, John has discovered in himself the thread of passion and purpose without expectations and without judgment. In our conversation about his book, and the struggles we are all facing, he lays out his philosophy of purpose and responsibility using personal anecdotes and powerful stories.
I interview, and get interviewed by a lot of people. This was one of the most enjoyable and profound 30 minute conversations I’ve had in a long time. I want to share this gift with you and invite you to join in the transformational journey of stepping up. This is Compassionate Accountability in action.
