Ep. 58 – Finding Your Radical Purpose – With Jose Leal

by | Meaning & Purpose, podcast

In this interview “Finding Your Radical Purpose,” Jose Leal shares his personal journey that led him to co-found Radical, a Collaborative helping people shift to ways of collaborating that meet their needs. His primary focus is on exposing the realities of the dominant systems of force that people now work in and developing approaches to break free. In doing so, he outlines the future of the workplace where there is an environment in balance. For the individual, this often leads to harmony and a fulfilled sense of purpose.

After 13 years of working in a dysfunctional organization and industry, Jose realized that he could no longer live or contribute to the dysfunction of the systems of force. So he has spent the last seven years researching human motivation and organizational environments, leading to the Radical Purpose Framework, Collaborative Canvas, and Collaborative Agreement and co-authoring Radical Companies.

Jose is an entrepreneur, a change agent, a paradigm shifter, a researcher, and an author. In this interview, discover what brought Jose to the point in his life that, despite his successes, made him question his environment and actions. Through research into human behavior and psychology, and aligning body, mind, and heart, he shows us a new meaning for radical.
