About this episode
In this dialogue we discuss the importance of leadership developing systemic intelligence, how the act of drawing out your role at work, and the system you work in, helps reveal your mental maps, why leadership needs to understand both the functional roles and implicit roles within a team, why understanding networks and relationship patterns is just as important as self awareness, how our inner world shape the system work and how the system or work shaping our inner world, why leadership needs to create container for the emergence of new possibilities and why big picture visions are not as useful as discovering the adjacent possibles.
