Dr. Bert Parlee, clinical psychologist, executive life coach, and former chief of staff at Integral Institute, joins ZOOM’D to explore the spectrum of outlooks at work in the world today, ranging from naïve idealism to apocalyptic pessimism. Bert describes how we might best approach our epic global challenges with informed hope and faith, bringing to life the notion of true integral optimism. This form of optimism is a hybrid of two contradictory yet complementary opposites: striving for high expectations, and surrendering to the mystery of existence. Join Bert and ZOOM’D host John Schmidt as they tread the potential pathways into the future, recognizing the real heroism that leadership might to call forward.
