David Roberts has successfully grown multiple businesses and is the host of the ‘People with Purpose’ podcast. Along the way, he has learnt alot about business, life, relationships and purpose. He talks to Christina about finding your purpose and passion and why as a leader, building an environment with psychological safety is crucial in creating a commitment culture where purpose and commitment are shared by all. He also discusses the powerful role of feedback in building rapport and trust in relationships.


If you can fill the start of your day with the highest priorities for you that align most strongly with your values, then your day is starting well

Write down what you love, what the world needs, what you are good at and what you can get paid for and try and do one of those things in your day.

Building rapport and maintaining rapport with others is about developing empathy, and when you can openly give and receive feedback, you are in a really strong relationship.

It’s important to be open to all feedback, but you don’t need to act on feedback; it’s a gift, and you can decide what you want to do with it.

Knowing you’re in an environment with psychological safety where you can be yourself and bring your best self to a situation is crucial.

People knowing they have psychological safety and that their emotional and mental well-being is being looked after and they are empowered to be able to make a difference to innovate, to be creative and to be themselves in what they are doing is what brings long-term commitment.

Everyone has a story to tell, and we can all learn from each other.

When you are trying to unlock your purpose, use a story arc (awareness, reflection, create).
