Do you ever wonder what it takes to shine in a way that lifts others around you? Being able to inspire the people you work with to take action, or take on a new project, or to say 'yes!' to buy into your new idea — that's the key to innovation and success. That’s what Paresh Shah is all about, and he joins me to share more about his unique brand of innovation.


Paresh is the founder of Lifters Academy, where he works with Lifters to elevate their teams, organizations, clients, and communities. He describes himself as everything from a serial entrepreneur to an engineer to a yogi and harnesses his vast and diverse experiences to fuel his thinking and drive his thinking.


The greatest innovation blossoms when you let the different parts of your life all flow together instead of compartmentalizing them. Paresh shares how he’s gone from hiding the different aspects of himself to integrating them and moved from intersection thinking to intersection being. He also dives into the importance of weaving work-life together, rather than thinking of it as a balancing act. We discuss why diversity and inclusion is the secret sauce to creativity with some real-life examples, how creating trust and vulnerability in teams leads to more innovation, and so much more.


If you are ready to:

  • get buy-in from key decision makers on your next big idea

  • be a high-impact, high-value member that ignites change

  • foster a culture of innovation where everyone on your team is bringing innovative ideas that tackle challenges and seize opportunities…
