In today’s episode, Anil and Ashish sit down with Amy Elizabeth Fox, a person who played a huge role in Ashish’s own transformation.

Amy Elizabeth Fox is the co-founder and CEO of Mobius Executive Leadership, a premier firm specializing in transformational leadership. They offer immersive executive development services like experiential leadership sessions, coaching, and retreats. With two decades of experience, she has guided senior leaders from various sectors, including CEOs and Board Chairs of Footsie 100 companies and Fortune 500 team members. She's a pioneer in integrating trauma literacy into vertical leadership development and founded the Next Practice Institute to elevate industry standards.

Throughout the episode, Amy sheds light on the importance of trauma healing for leaders, and how it can unlock their true leadership potential and bring about positive transformation. 

She shares insightful stories and examples, helping us understand that trauma is not limited to extreme experiences, but rather it encompasses various events that overwhelm us emotionally and linger in our lives.

She also talks about the connection between inner health and leadership, understanding how trauma affects our behaviors, decisions, and relationships in the organizational setting. Amy urges leaders to embark on their healing journey and foster a culture that encourages open dialogue and vulnerability, allowing employees to grow and thrive together.
