Working On Purpose Podcast

Working on Purpose is a thought leadership platform that advances the conversation on creating destination workplaces that magnetize people, develops inspirational leaders that ignite their motivation to perform at their best while growing into their higher potential, and helps organizations operate from their purpose to do business that betters the world – places most people would be remiss to leave.

Hosted by Dr. Alise Cortez and on air since February 2015, Working on Purpose airs live every Tuesday from 5:00 to 5:50 pm CST, live-streamed on Dr. Cortez’s Working on Purpose YouTube channel. The show is also syndicated on 28 audio platforms, including iHeart, Apple, and Stitcher.

Over the years, the show has featured topics of passion, inspiration, purpose, culture, and leadership, and reflects the unfoldment of the host’s consciousness and consulting practice journey. We prioritize guests who are authors, experts, or renowned speakers due to the show’s educational and inspirational nature. Today, we’re focusing on enhancing spiritual intelligence in corporate leadership and culture. We welcome guests with insights into values like compassion, wonder, awe, love, joy, peace, and personal effectiveness.
