Join me here for another Peak-Careers Interview. My guest today is J.P. Michel the Founder of SparkPath and Creator of the Challenge Cards.
Today we are discussing his new book, The World Need You, and how we can get away from the horrible question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and to flip the equation to helping people discover and articulate the challenges they want to take on.
