Chief Executive Officer - Potentialife
Changing your ideas about leadership
Angus Ridgway is the CEO of Potentialife and a world-renowned speaker, author and entrepreneur in the area of personal and professional flourishing, peak performance leadership and behavioural change.
Angus joined forces in 2011 with leading Harvard academic Professor Tal Ben-Shahar (positive psychology expert) to create a platform that would allow organisations to scale the development of peak performing and flourishing leaders to be at the top of their game every day, both at home and at work.
By bringing together the science of peak performance, the science of behavioural change and a unique proprietary technology platform, the behavioural change program Potentialife is changing how organisations think and go about leadership development globally.
In his recent best-selling book, ‘The Joy of Leadership – How Positive Psychology Can Maximize Your Impact and Make You Happier in a Challenging World’, Angus and co-author Professor Tal Ben-Shahar present the science behind their unique approach to human and leadership flourishing.
Angus’ interest in leadership stemmed from his astonishment at the diversity of leadership profiles he saw in clients and colleagues during a 20-year career in management consulting.
Inside and outside of his role as CEO of Potentialife, Angus speaks widely on leadership related topics such as humanising leadership in an AI world; the science of being at the top of your game; the challenges with traditional corporate training approaches; the power of rituals; and technology as an enabler of scaling.
