Leading the Next Generation - a Conversation with Stephanie Christopher of The Executive Connection
Play • 31 min

A lively conversation with Stephanie Christopher CEO of The Executive Connection, an organisation I speak for.

Our conversation begins with a question I’ve never asked my previous podcast guests and takes on a journey of Stephanie’s carer and her passion for leading the next generation.

An early turning point for Stephanie came as her father suggested she would make a good PA and her mother retorted that she would make a better boss! Stephanie shares how she, like many of us, was ‘a product of the times’ – she then goes on to share how she changed that trajectory.

Here are a few of the golden nuggets gleaned from our conversation:-

  • How we are influenced by stereotypes
  • Why you can’t be a ‘one man band’ as a leader
  • What’s your lens of talent through the whole organisation?
  • The advent of ‘choose your own career pathways
  • Why you need to slow down to speed up
  • The best question to ask a person starting on their first day of a new job!
  • Acknowledge your bias when it comes to leading intergenerational teams – look in the mirror
  • Be open to not having all the answers – experience can count for much…or it can count for nothing
