Biology meets Business – Physician and Educator Parneet Pal in Conversation with Tim Leberecht
Biology meets business – The interdependence between our inner and outer ecologies Together with Parneet, a physician and educator who was the first generation of her family in Mumbai, India to go to college, this session will focus on the interrelationship between personal and planetary health and whether organizations can become more like life (instead of managing it) and mimic biological principles.
Parneet argues that the energy crisis is an inner energy crisis, and that sustainability requires inner sustainability. She explores the link between our inner health and that of our planet, and reasons how once you truly understand the exchange and appreciate the subtleties, it is hard to
stay apathetic about both.
In this deep-dive conversation, Parneet Pal and Tim Leberecht shed light on the interaction of biology and business and explore questions such as what the mitochondrial function has to do with teams and organizations being stuck in old repetitive patterns of thinking and doing.
Today, Parneet works at the intersection of business, lifestyle medicine, and behavior change, looking for the connections and interdependence within human and planetary systems that make them resilient and regenerative. She has designed lifestyle management programs, has
served as chief science officer at a San Francisco-based start-up focused on stress, burnout, and loneliness in the workplace, and currently works with and trains executive teams and organizations to optimize health and performance and its impact on leadership and planetary wellbeing.
