Episode 3

Peter Fisk: How do you recode yourself to leap forward?

An inspirational leader often creates a leap forward in the positioning, performance and profile of the organisation. They’ve been bold enough to look at a situation with new lenses — customer, outsider, new employee. They look for stimulus in the margins, listening carefully to new voices and those who are at the margins. And then they have the courage to take the leap forward. That means letting go of the past — activities, mindset, even people — and identifying the limiting assumptions you make about the business or the space you compete in. So what do you need to do to ‘recode yourself’ to make this leap forward?

Peter Fisk, the speaker, author, advisor and professor talks about this and more in this stimulating discussion.

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