If you're fed up of hearing all the bullshit, jargon and cliches around leadership, this podcast series is about getting real. I talk with top leaders and leadership thinkers as they share their ideas and insights on leading in a world that's radically different from the one still being taught in business schools. The world needs different thinking and acting right now and leaders, believe it or not, must lead the way. Out with the top-down command-and-control models of the 20th Century, and in with getting out of the way and trusting your people (who know best) to make the decisions. This series will take you 'on a journey' (OK, so not completely cliche-free!) by looking at the big picture and gradually delving deeper into some of the changes we need to make to be effective and inspiring in this incredible new world that's emerging. For example, Kevin Ellis, UK Chair of the world's biggest consultancy firm PwC, explains some radical changes he's making to adapt their organisation for an average employee age of just 28. And I'll be bringing you conversations with a White House advisor, the Chair of the Government's 'Taylor Review' into the Future of Work, and several authors of seminal leadership books and models. And it'll be fun. How can we make work better if we don't all just lighten up a little?! (Or a lot in some cases!) Enjoy :-)
