Straight Talking Series: 'Communication is the real work of leadership*' with Rosie Halfhead and Nancy Glynn
Host: Rosie Halfhead, member of Echo Research’s Advisory Board
Guest: Nancy Glynn
Authenticity, total listening and how to create positive contagion - The routes to human- centred leadership
Executives and the businesses they lead are under constant scrutiny.
The concept of social licence is growing, making the challenges of business and society more interdependent than ever.
The playbooks they rely upon are wholly inadequate (and even 'often obsolete'). How can leaders adapt to the ever-changing and increasingly complex environments and deliver sustained high performance and remain true to their purpose?
How do leaders reconcile the need to speak up with the risk of disenfranchising stakeholders?
In this episode we talk about the shift to human-centred leadership and straight-talking communications.
