ABOUT THIS EPISODE
I met Mark several years ago in California where we were speaking at the same event. What struck me was how Marks career has transitioned from finance and mechanistic thinking to a more wholistic and energetic focused mindset. This is theme is present throughout this dialogue.
Another theme we touch on is the importance of leadership authenticity and the ability of leaders to create a sense of safety. Within a climate of uncertainty complexity and exponential change…leaders will get things wrong and they will fail to achieve their initial vision and the the vision might change…and that is ok. But they also need to create a safe space for others to fail in the process. And this requires leadership to have the courage to relinquishing control over the future vision and allow a collaborative vision to emerge.
If you are interested in exploring the role of psychological safety in change, The power of “I don’t know”, how to create collaborative visions of the future, authentic listening and positive authenticity, the importance of developing self discernment in a information world, the power of flexible work environments and why experts and leaders need to share their thought process to get buy-in…then this episode is for you.
