François Ortalo-Magné: Leading clever people
How do you lead a group of clever, brilliant people? That’s a question I posed of François Ortalo-Magné, Dean and CEO of the London Business School. We delve into his world as leader of one of the world’s most prestigious business schools.
You’ll hear about:
- Harnessing the collective intelligence of his faculty and students for the greater good — making connections and creating the conditions for curious wandering.
- The opportunities and challenges from being an outsider CEO.
- The role and impact of a business school.
- His toughest decisions e.g. during the pandemic.
- What he would disrupt in business education, and where he would start.
You’ll hear about analogies stretching from farming to football, too! The best bits of these conversations are captured in my newsletter Strategic Leader.
