When we’re talking about positive disruption, child trafficking should be one of the first things that comes to mind.

In this episode, I interview Chris Field, Founder and Executive Director of Mercy Project and author of Disrupting for Good, about the traits of positive disruption in leaders.

What we talked about:

  • Asking himself “why not me?”
  • His realization that his tears wouldn’t free any children
  • What positive disruption means for leaders
  • 3 key traits of disruptors
  • The importance of community and resilience
