I enjoyed being interviewed by Mark Bouris this week about “Resilience at the edge of chaos”. We discussed issues ranging from the neuroscience of leadership to survive ‘Black Swan events’, to future technologies and how robots will impact business and employment. markbouris.com.au/episode-14-mark-bouris-podcast
Mark’s fascinating podcasts are downloaded by about 275,000 listeners every week.
Each week he summarises the current financial climate before introducing his guest speaker.
I recommend Mark’s recent interview of Angela Mentis. Angela is the Group Executive that runs the $30b Business Banking division at the National Australia Bank. Angela “walks the talk” and steers NAB to remain one of the most respected business bank in Australia.
Mark’s Interview with me
I met Mark at 7:30 am on Wednesday morning when he arrived at the recording studio with his communications and PR team. He was impressively dressed in his gym clothes having come straight from a boxing session that started his day. The interview started two minutes later.
Mark shares my fascination for neuroscience. So we discussed the brain, the mind and how it relates to everyday subjects such as business resilience, trust, disclosure, brand, decision making, surfing the edge of chaos, crisis management, knowledge, leadership, mechatronics, sentient robots and finally recruitment companies for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Terminators”.
I recommend all of Mark’s weekly podcasts. I hope that you enjoy listening to Mark’s 14th podcast with me.
Note: At the 22 minute mark I should have said that Micro-Managing (not delegating) is the cancer for junior staff and teamwork.
