How do we bring about positive change in others? In organizations, communities … in ourselves?

These are the questions that Dr. Abdul-Malik Muhammad and his team at Akoben seek to answer.

Dr. Muhammad, our guest on this Outperform podcast episode, is the founder of Akoben, an inspiring organization that provides trainings, consulting and keynotes with the goal of transforming individuals, organizations and communities and positively affecting change.

Dr. Muhammad has served as a teacher, Principal, Campus President, and Executive and State Director of a multitude of national and international organizations, and has been a grassroots organizer, activist and advocate for marginalized youth for nearly 25 years.

In addition to his work with Akoben, Dr. Muhammad currently serves as the Vice President of several educational, mental health, and human services operations across multiple states.

Acceleration Partners founder and Managing Director, Bob Glazer, heard Dr. Muhammad speak and was both moved and inspired by what he had to say and share.

It was an honor to have him on Outperform to discuss his formula for affecting positive change, why it’s a synergistic process and how it can be adapted to any person or organization.

If you value making positive changes in your life, your company and in the world around you, this is an episode to listen carefully to.
