    Ask Me Three? How can you create a connected team without forced engagement? With Sarah James Wright and Nicoletta Bertoldi.

    Film-maker and Project Manager, Nicoletta Bertoldi, asks Sarah about effective leadership, particularly in charities and community organisations. How can we move beyond profit as the only marker of value and establish a wider exchange of value generally? And, particularly in purpose-led organisations, can we focus on well-being as a valid marker, rather than rely on self-sacrifice and a culture of overwork?

    Ep.4 How to Do Less in order to Be More with Sarah James Wright

    Sarah explains the first step in any true transformation journey begins with building capacity into the system, whether on an individual or collective level. Although it’s hard to disrupt our pattern of ‘efforting’, unless we avoid pushing expectation onto an already overworked system, there can be no space to discover anything new. Find out how nurturing the capacity to explore is a key aspect of generative leadership and what you can do to create that space for yourself.
