    The Female Prescription for Innovation with Fabienne Jacquet

    The Female Prescription for Innovation with Fabienne Jacquet

    Today's episode explores innovation from different perspectives: historical, scientific, sociological, cultural and practical — all through the feminine lens. It addresses the shortage of women in innovation and how important it is to address this as the first step to inclusion. This book reveals that any innovator can acquire the necessary skills to create meaningful innovation.
    It is about celebrating the duality of the feminine and the masculine in all human beings and dares us to activate both energies to create innovation that brings true value to our world.

To date, the world (and innovation) has been mainly driven by masculine energy, and we can no longer ignore gender. This book will help you discover that you have latent feminine skills and that, wherever you stand on the masculine/feminine spectrum, rebalancing towards the opposite makes you a more centred human being in your personal and professional life.
    It’s a pleasure to welcome the author of Venus Genius: The Female Prescription for Innovation, Fabienne Jacquet .

    Hidden Truths Part 3 with David Fubini

    Hidden Truths Part 3 with David Fubini

    Courses are taught in MBA and executive development programs that provide a lot of information about the job. Direct reports and teams also observe leaders in action. But it’s not until you assume a leadership job that the reality of the position hits home.
    The reality is that leaders operate in a crucible, one in which emotions run high and interpersonal relationships are at risk. Being in the spotlight, not having nearly enough hours in the day to address key issues, confronting right-versus-right decisions - all of this ratchets up the degree of difficulty.
    We welcome back the author of Hidden Truths: What Leaders Need to Hear but Are Rarely Told, David Fubini

    From Reopen to Reinvent with Michael Horn

    From Reopen to Reinvent with Michael Horn

    In today’s knowledge economy that prizes intellectual capital—where we need all individuals to build passions and develop their full human potential—our education system is no longer sufficient. Amid the disaster since the pandemic’s assault on society and schools over multiple school years, there is an opportunity to rebuild better by altering the fundamental assumptions undergirding our present-day schooling model. Today's book isn’t about disruptive innovation. Nor is it about the devastation and disruption that the pandemic caused. It’s about what we build out of this devastation. What we choose to create. And our guest proposes that It starts with educators.
    We welcome a friend of the show and someone I have also become to see as a friend, he is here to share his new book, From Reopen to Reinvent, Recreating School for Every Child, Michael Horn

Best of its kind

Every guest Aidan has on is someone I want to spend time with. For anyone involved in change or innovation, or just anyone emotionally invested in what they do, I would highly recommend the Innovation Show. It’s got me reading more, writing more, thinking more and stressing less.
