Paolo Gallo: Leading with clarity, care and coherence

What do inspirational leaders do? How do they think? And how do they look after themselves? They certainly have to be able to learn and reinvent themselves. Build trust with others. They have to see the bigger picture whilst mastering the fine detail of their business. They have to be clear on what they stand for and and take care of themselves so that they can perform at their best at critical moments.

The model of top-down, command-and-control leadership — still prevalent in many large organisations — doesn’t work for employees and stakeholders who want more empowerment, flexibility and care.

These are the themes I explore with Paolo Gallo, the author of the book The Compass and the Radar, an executive coach, speaker and adjunct professor.

The best bits of these conversations are captured in my newsletter Flashes+Sparks.
