In this episode, I switch roles with one of my previous guests, Eran Magen, who guest-hosts this week and takes us on a provocative and philosophical journey into the nature of human relationship. We cover a lot of terrain starting from my very first social dance steps to the larger implications of rewriting the conventional script of leading and following roles at work and in society.
“Mostly following, and leading-as-needed, tends to be the most effective strategy."
“We tend to think leading is primary, but perhaps following is primary. We’re always responding to something.”
“Rewrite the script and normalize following as something everyone is doing all the time.”
“It’s really noble work to reset these roles because they ripple through every facet of our existence together."
