Down the Rabbit Hole (DtRH Available FALL 2022)
The science of leadership mindsets
The human bio-psycho-neuro-socio-cultural 'DNA' of leadership.
Since the 1960s nearly 80,000 books (and counting) have been written about leadership. The problem with understanding leadership is its highly subjective and contextual nature. There are as many different views on leadership as there are leaders, therefore, everyone has a different answer.
There is a practical, 'hands on' approach to leadership, which are theory, models and methodology. This podcast however takes you down another route, ‘the rabbit hole’, exploring the vast human scientific domains that impact how leaders think, adapt, develop, respond, perform and survive (or not).
DtRH explores how specific human scientific domains impact how leaders (humans) think, develop, respond and perform. It takes an innovative approach that shapes and throws new light on the subject of leadership, often approached by narrow, conventional perspectives. DtRH is really trying to help leaders understand that leadership is an intricate and complex system of human elements - peoples, cultures, customs and environments (i.e. ethnography).
Each episode is as ‘Q&A’ with a leader or subject expert who analyses how their specific domain relates to leadership thinking, behaviour, capacity and capability.
