Quotes From This Episode

  • "If you want to get to know a place, try to change something."
  • "I suppose as you go through your career, particularly as you get towards the twilight phase of your career, you tend to think...'Hang on, where did this all start?', and you start to go back to your original passions and interests."
  • "What I’ve been quietly and slightly more noisily doing recently is looking at what I call a 'geography of leadership.'"
  • "You’re encouraged to talk about your Mountain and your River. And as someone who’s sort of moved around an awful lot, I must admit, I really struggle with the question - 'What is my Mountain and my River?' The whole idea is that these are critical advocates for who you are and what you’re about, and what you stand for."
  • "And of course, the key task of leaders is to create the kind of collaborative governance structures that sustain, but then the collective leadership that keeps the momentum."
