PAUL GIBBONS (from London, England) is passionate about science, and how science can be used to transform the human condition, and improve humanity's prospects. His writing and teaching "at the nexus of science, philosophy, and business" focuses on the application of the wider human sciences (not just psychology), philosophy, medicine, public health, mathematics, behavioral economics, and machine intelligence to business and business leadership.

He began his career by earning a degree in neurochemistry, followed by Masters-level study in International Economics and Finance. At 20, he moved to London as a "quant" derivatives trader, working at Salomon Brothers, Morgan Stanley, and First Boston. He eventually became Director of Eurobond Tradin

What is Pop Leadership and Why is it Harmful?

What is Pop Leadership and Why is it Harmful?

Pop leadership is dangerous stuff. 


Why? 


Because pop leadership sounds wise and profound – but it is more often either trivial or wrong.


Dan Dennett (famous Tufts philosopher) coined the expression “deepity” – which is a statement that is apparently profound but actually asserts a triviality on one level and something meaningless on another.

Human, All Too Human by Friedrich Nietzsche
“And so, onwards... along a path of wisdom, with a hearty tread, a hearty confidence.. however you may be, be your own source of experience. Throw off your discontent about your nature. Forgive yourself your own self. You have it in your power to merge everything you have lived through- false starts, errors, delusions, passions, your loves and your hopes- into your goal, with nothing left over.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

“Business people need to understand the psychology of risk more than the mathematics of risk.”
Paul Gibbons, The Science of Successful Organizational Change: How Leaders Set Strategy, Change Behavior, and Create an Agile Culture

“Psychological pseudoscience dies hard, especially when there are commercial interests at stake.”
Paul Gibbons, The Science of Successful Organizational Change: How Leaders Set Strategy, Change Behavior, and Create an Agile Culture

“Leaders need to sacrifice "power-over" to get "power-to".”
Paul Gibbons, The Science of Successful Organizational Change: How Leaders Set Strategy, Change Behavior, and Create an Agile Culture

“If the brain were so simple we could understand it, we would be so simple we couldn't.”
Lyall Watson

“Do not ruin today with mourning tomorrow.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making

“There is nothing passive about mindfulness. One might even say that it expresses a specific kind of passion—a passion for discerning what is subjectively real in every moment. It is a mode of cognition that is, above all, undistracted, accepting, and (ultimately) nonconceptual. Being mindful is not a matter of thinking more clearly about experience; it is the act of experiencing more clearly, including the arising of thoughts themselves. Mindfulness is a vivid awareness of whatever is appearing in one’s mind or body—thoughts, sensations, moods—without grasping at the pleasant or recoiling from the unpleasant.”
Sam Harris, Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion

“One is a great deal less anxious if one feels perfectly free to be anxious, and the same may be said of guilt.”
Alan Wilson Watts, Psychotherapy East and West

“A healthy mind observes and questions itself. This is the path to inner peace and happiness. Don’t believe everything you think.”
Vironika Tugaleva
