Paul Gibbons is a former investment banker, consultant, professor, and CEO (yes, he is that old.) Today, his writing, speaking, and scholarship focuses on how science and philosophy can provide practical solutions to the problems we face in the 21st century.

In late 2020, The Spirituality of Work, and Leadership was published. The first in a two-book series on Humanizing Business, it culls material from dozens of spiritual traditions and the great philosophers of the 20th century to help readers finding meaning, joy, and purpose in their lives. While there are many books on specific spiritual traditions and work, say Christian leadership, "SoWaL" is the only broad, comprehensive, and ecumenical treatment of the topic.

Paul's Impact gives leaders 21st-century change tools and models that are based on up-to-the-minute research in behavioral sciences, complexity theory, agile methods, information science, and more. Astute leaders know that upskilling, culture change, and mindset are critical ingredients for successful digital change – but do not know how to change those quickly enough to keep up with pace of technological change. Impact is about those “upgrades” to the human side of organizations, leading, learning, communicating, changing, collaborating, deciding, and engaging.

His first book, The Science of Organizational Change, is listed as one of the top-ten organizational change books of all time. The book debunked management double-speak with 21st-century research from the human sciences: philosophy, economics, political science, public health, psychology, neuroscience, sociology, and history.

Paul's bigger project could be called "humanizing business and change." The most urgent questions for this century, suggests Paul, are two-fold. First, how can we balance the good business does, lifting billions from poverty, allowing collaboration and innovation on a global scale, and commercializing science for the common good, with its potential for great harm consumer fraud, financial bubbles, environmental damage, shattered communities, and corruption of our democracy? Second, how can we use science and reason, and not pseudoscience, myths, gurus, quacks, and dogma, to make better decisions in our lives and for our society?

Paul "bumper stickers?" (1) "Change is inevitable, whether it represents progress is up to us."

(2) "As computers do more of our thinking for us, taking over many of our cognitive tasks, our “competitive advantage” is in the social domain." (3) "In a world where advancing human capability is critical, leaders need to lead learning.”

His popular practical philosophy podcast, Think Bigger, Think Better can be found on Itunes and Stitcher.

In 2017, Paul become a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. In 2016, he was named a “Top-30 global guru” in organizational culture, and in 2008, CEO Magazine called Paul one of two "CEO Super Coaches". He has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Guardian, and Independent newspapers. Paul has degrees in biochemistry, philosophy, and psychology, and has taught business ethics and business leadership at some of the world’s top business schools. He lives in Colorado with two young sons, serves on the board of Denver’s Institute for Enterprise Ethics, and competes in “mindsports”, chess, bridge, MOBA, and poker.
