Gregg Levoy is anauthor, speaker, and seminar leader. He is the acclaimed author of Vital Signs: The Nature and Nurture of Passion and Callings: Finding and Following An Authentic Life, the latter of which is among the Workforce Information Group’s "Top 20 Career Publications". He previously worked as a Behavioral Specialist at USA Today. Currently, he is a regular contributing author and blogger for Psychology Today. He frequently holds workshops about the business, educational, governmental, faith-based and human-potential industries as well as keynote presentations for audiences at prestigious organizations such as the Smithsonian Institution, the Environmental Protection Agency, and Microsoft.


Gregg joins me today to discuss the importance of self-inquiry and knowing your true self and how it impacts your ability to build healthy relationships. We discuss the importance ofnot just of listening, but also of having genuine conversations with yourself, especially in uncovering things you never knew about your character, your relationships, and the world around you. We share how being authentic means paying attention to signs within and around you — and preparing to hear self-truths from ourselves that may not always be pleasant.


“It’s really that age-old idea that ‘you can’t love other people until you love yourself.’” - Gregg Levoy
