In this episode of season 4 I welcome Marcel Daane. I am super excited to welcome Marcel as he has been prominent on my social media feeds for a long time. I admire the work he does as an executive and leadership coach, and his concept about body mind connection in a business world.
 
Marcel and I actually recorded a live video cast and this podcast is a transcript of it - the audio form essentially. A fascinating conversation about mind body leadership, how we learn and how executives can get unstuck.
 
Being a leadership coach myself, working with teams to improve mental health, mindfulness and well being, I couldn’t miss the opportunity to speak with Marcel and learn from the best.
 
As a form of an intro, Marcel suffered with a mental illness that almost cost his life as a young adult. However, through Martial Arts, Mindfulness and Selflessness, he overcame his struggles and learned how to thrive despite his challenges.
 
30 years on, and Marcel is an award winning executive coach with a Masters Degree in Neuroscience and Leadership, author of the highly acclaimed book 'Headstrong Performance’, and he is considered one of the world’s pioneers in Mind-Body Leadership.
 
Now if he doesn’t work, he spends time with his wife and daughter.
