Minter Dialogue with Alex Pattakos

Alex Pattakos is the founder of the Global Meaning Institute, a political scientist, philosopher and bestselling author. He has written (or cowritten) "The OPA! Way", "Discovering Meaning through the Lens of Work," (for the Journal of Constructive Psychology) and most recently, "Prisoners of our Thoughts, Viktor Frankl's Principles for Discovering Meaning in Life and Work."
