Episode 1: Zane A. Zumbahlen Ikigai in a Blue Chip Company
Play • 50 min

"Can I have a corporate role and still integrate my ikigai?"

I hear this question a lot in my Ikigai workshops and write about it in Ikigai Myth Busting

Zane and I chat about walking beans and the power of knowing what your ikigai is NOT, taking risks, influencing others, and how to keep your focus as you become more senior in an organisation.

We take a trip down memory lane talking about the volunteer work we did back in 2018 for Deepen the Dialogue to advance women's participation in the workforce in Japan.
