The state of leadership in 2022
Play • 47 min

In the first episode of this series we thought we should start with a review of leadership so far in 2022, covering some of the highs (there have been a few we promise) and lows of leadership right now. 

We share our thoughts on what’s impressing us in the leadership space, as well as the things that are causing us to get on our soapboxes:

  • 03:16 – Patagonia, living their values and staying true to their purpose
  • 09:47 – Gen Z, the boundary setters
  • 22:00 – handling HR processes compassionately
  • 26:41 – leading through the cost of living crisis
  • 34:30 – the future leader – values, adaptability and wellbeing
  • 43:13 – the How To... our top takeaways

As always we share our top takeaways and in this episode we discuss reframing issues into opportunities, what you can do today that has the biggest impact, lobbying for what matters, engaging with your colleagues, taking action and prioritising wellbeing.

Lee shared the example of transparent leadership from Tony Stubblebine at Medium and the statement she mentions is available here

We also talked about the parallels in our current monarchy and the storyline in To Play The King by Michael Dobbs.
