About this Episode
In this episode we explore the impossible role of leadership, why the context of the past might be shaping the wrong future, why leadership needs to see uncertainty as an asset instead of a risk, the significance of bringing awareness to creativity and integrating it into the leadership process, why the past should never be immortal, and why leadership needs to embrace future literacy to better understand the risks and opportunities of the future.
