Stuart Williams on the Choosing Leadership Podcast

This week I interviewed Stuart Williams, the creator of Impact Economics on the “Choosing Leadership with Sumit Gupta” podcast which I launched just at the end of 2021. This is what he has to say about colouring outside the lines:

Ever since I was a young child, my mother taught me to color outside the lines, do not cover inside the lines, because then you’re part of the establishment color, outside the lines, be brave, they’ll create something, you know, literally, you know, create the future. You’d like to see. And, and so. I I’ve never had to think outside the box because I was never put in a box in the first place.”

Stuart Williams

This is a podcast for people who know deep inside that there is more. My invitation to you is to “choose” leadership and to step up as a leader in an area of life that matters to you – be it work, passion, health, impact in society, or something else. To listen to previous episodes, click here.

Subscribe to the Choosing Leadership podcast on Spotify, Google, or Amazon Music. (coming soon on Apple podcasts as well)

I am interviewing leaders to learn from their stories – of how they came to be where they are today. These are the stories peers and friends don’t usually know, and my attempt is to bring them out. Find out what has shaped them to be the person and leader they are today.

The Neuroscience behind emotions

Emotional intelligence has been a hot topic for many years now.


Because nobody taught us in school or college. Yet, learning how to navigate emotions is essential for both producing results and our wellbeing.

Various studies show that strong leaders have very strong Emotional Intelligence, in addition to their critical thinking skills.

How can you contribute?

Our journeys might not look alike. They might resemble more of a roller-coaster ride than a race track, and that is what makes each one of us special and unique in our own ways. I am deeply touched when someone takes the time to share their story with me.

If you would like to recommend someone else who I should interview, feel free to recommend them. You can send me a message on LinkedIn or send me an email at

I wish you all a happy and prosperous 2022. Until the next week, keep Choosing Leadership.

With gratitude,
