How do leaders, innovators, and successful entrepreneurs practice resilience? How does resilience help to create success (and how do we even define success)? My guest on this week’s episode is best-selling author, CEO, management expert and technology entrepreneur Faisal Hoque. Faisal currently runs a company called Shadoka and is a regular contributor for Fast Company. Faisal has a very interesting background. He moved from Bangladesh to the USA when he was 17 and by the age of 22, started his own company and was on the way to achieve tremendous success. However, he eventually had to deal with tremendous adversity and that’s when he started to make a number of changes in his life and approach. We get into all of that, and much more.

- Emotional intelligence and systemic thinking
- Risk and living in uncertainty
- Overcoming adversity
- And much more!
