Dr. Paul Mohapel
Paul Mohapel began his career as a neuroscientist, and while working in Sweden he had an epiphany that inspired him to leave science and move towards leadership. Today, he uses his knowledge of the brain, psychology and leadership to consult, facilitate and educate with organizations. Mohapel believes that effective leadership requires a holistic approach that requires emotional, spiritual, social and systemic thinking skills.
