About Track

Leadership is hard. What are the traits you should look to emulate from others? How will you know you are doing a good job? Another question is how do you prepare for inevitable disasters? In their book The Ostrich Paradox the authors Robert Meyer & Howard Kunreuther discuss this aspect of underpreparation in depth. We as individuals, organisations and societies generally underprepare for disasters. In this podcast episode we take a peek inside their findings and discuss the 6 biases that they say lead to this lack of preparation. Whether you are new to leadership or are looking to audit your skill set, this episode has something for you. Get on our newsletter for exclusive content and offers:
