We are living through times of increasing economic and political uncertainty, technological disruption, globalization and the twin challenges of the climate emergency and global health crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic. These times are truly unlike anything we have experienced before, and to help make sense of the world and the way we work and interact with others, renowned leadership experts, Olivier Mythodrama, have released the Archetypal Wisdom Podcast.Archetypes are the underlying patterns of human nature and experience that are, often invisibly, ‘running the show’. They deeply inform the character that you present to the world as well as the culture of communities and organisations.This series draws wisdom from the works of William Shakespeare, Psychology, Cosmology and the Quantum field and explores the rich understanding from the old story, which will help us develop the new. Listen to experts in each field, discuss the timeless leadership lessons that can help pave the way for a new age.
