073 Peter Moody: Looking After Your Energy and Mental Health as a Leader
Sep 07, 2023 Season 10 Episode 73
Joanna Howes

In this week’s episode I speak to Peter Moody, Chief Innovation Officer at MullenLowe.

Join us for a fascinating conversation around how to create an environment of experimentation where our team feels safe to fail and make mistakes while trying something new. We also discuss the power of leaning into risk as opposed to avoiding it for continued growth and success.

Peter also delves into how we are like batteries and we need to look after our energy or it will run out. He shares his personal experience of burnout and depression and how he had to learn to come to terms with it and be open about it.

Key takeaways include:

  • We need to stop hypocrisy in leadership. Our actions are not backing up what we are saying we care about
  • Breaking things down into small chunks to get progress and momentum back
  • The learnings Peter brought to his leadership after living in Japan for 16 years

Peter Moody is Chief Innovation Officer at MullenLowe, driving the growth of Social, Data and CX across the MullenLowe business. Peter is also part of the IPG AI steering committee to help drive broader digital transformation and application of AI across its global business units.
