Marketing Podcast with Dr. John Demartini
Podcast Transcript

Dr. John Demartini headshotToday on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast I sit down with world-renowned specialist in human behavior, researcher, author, and global educator Dr. John Demartini.

We all think that we know what our values are, but do we really understand what it is that drives and inspires us? Dr. Demartini has undertaken a lifelong mission to learn what makes us tick. He says that rather than relying on cliched ideas about our ideals, by looking at where we spend our time, money, and energy, we can hone in on our true set of values.

Once we’ve found those values, they become the key to unlocking a life filled with meaning. On this episode, Dr. Demartini and I talk about his book, The Values Factor, and the fascinating world of values.

Questions I ask Dr. John Demartini:

  • Can you define the term “values factor”?
  • What gets in the way of people identifying their true values?
  • Is there anything wrong with having aspirational values?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • How to move beyond cliched notions of values to find the things we’re truly inspired by.
  • How leaders can use a values system to build a more engaged team.
  • How understanding your values can help you embrace all sides of yourself (and why that matters).
