Join scientist and mindset & high-performance coach Claudia Garbutt and author & business advisor Ian Williams as they talk about saving ourselves as the only path to saving the world.

In this episode we talk about:

– Overcoming addiction & the importance of self-development

– The mystical experience that changed the trajectory of Ian’s life

– Leadership strategy & company culture


Ian C. Williams is an author, speaker, and business advisor. His humanitarian and environmental values were shaped by the landscapes of Minnesota during his youth. Then, a single, mystical, experience transformed his life at the age of 24. A decade of spiritual immersion and self-discovery followed that revealed a fundamental truth: saving ourselves is the only path to saving the world. Now, he devotes himself to generating positive change for the common good through his personal and professional endeavors.

Ian has a Master’s in Public Affairs (MPA) with an emphasis in Leadership Strategy and Organizational Culture from the University of Minnesota Humphrey School. His background in education, mindfulness, and regenerative design informs his business advising. He works primarily with mission driven organizations on the front lines of social and environmental justice to help them grow healthy cultures and people, and environmental impact.

Ian’s book “Soil & Spirit: Seeds of Purpose, Nature’s Insight, & the Deep Work of Transformational Change“ will be released on February 21st, 2023.
