Guests: Jim Ritchie-Dunham, Suzie Lewis, & David Dinwoodie
Here’s a common business myth: the key to navigating all the complexity increasing in the world is simply working harder and longer. But the results aren’t there. Neither is the science.
In reality, the future of work requires agility, and adaptive problem-solving. In this episode, guests Jim Ritchie-Dunham, Suzie Lewis, and David Dinwoodie bring their expertise with host Maureen Metcalf about what works – and what doesn’t – in company cultures.
Here's what our guests cover:
- Why we need to rely on the people in our personal and professional networks (and the fact that you can only manage 15 of them effectively);
- The importance of your own vertical development (not just developing expertise in your field); and
- How personal flourishing is important for leaders and their teams.
