    Iain McGilchrist - The Matter With Things Part 1

    Iain McGilchrist - The Matter With Things Part 1

    In this landmark new book, our guest addresses some of the oldest and hardest questions humanity faces – ones that have a practical urgency for all of us today.

    Who are we?
    What is the world?
    How can we understand consciousness, matter, space and time? Is the cosmos without purpose or value?
    Can we really neglect the sacred and divine?

    In doing so, he argues that we have become enslaved to an account of things dominated by the brain’s left hemisphere, one that blinds us to an awe-inspiring reality that is all around us, had we but eyes to see it.

    He suggests that in order to understand ourselves and the world we need science and intuition, reason and imagination, not just one or two;
    that they are in any case far from being in conflict;
    and
    that the brain’s right hemisphere plays the most important part in each.

    And he shows us how to recognise the ‘signature’ of the left hemisphere in our thinking, so as to avoid making decisions that bring disaster in their wake.

    Following the paths of cutting-edge neurology, philosophy and physics, he reveals how each leads us to a similar vision of the world, one that is both profound and beautiful – and happens to be in line with the deepest traditions of human wisdom.
    It is a vision that returns the world to life, and us to a better way of living in it: one we must embrace if we are to survive.

    He is one of my favourite writers and his previous appearance on the show remains one of my favourites and each time I listen to I learn something new, he is back to introduce his latest book, which I consider an oeuvre as in the French word for a body of work and this is a magnificent oeuvre.

    It is a pleasure to welcome back the author of
    “The Matter With Things: Our Brains, Our Delusions, and the Unmaking of the World”, Dr Iain McGilchrist

    Yes to the Mess Part 2: Surprising Leadership Lessons from Jazz with Frank Barrett

    Yes to the Mess Part 2: Surprising Leadership Lessons from Jazz with Frank Barrett

    The premise of today’s book is that nurturing spontaneity, creativity , experimentation, and dynamic synchronization is no longer an optional approach to leadership. It’s the only approach. The current velocity of change demands nothing less. It demands paying attention to the mental models, the cultural beliefs and values, the practices and structures that support improvisation. We welcome back the author of: “Yes to the Mess: Surprising Leadership Lessons from Jazz”, Frank Barrett.

    The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety Part 2 with Tim Clark

    The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety Part 2 with Tim Clark

    Today’s guest has four questions for us…. First, do you truly believe that all men and women are created equal, and do you accept others and welcome them into your society simply because they possess flesh and blood even if their values differ from your own? Second, without bias or discrimination, do you encourage others to learn and grow, and do you support them in that process even when they lack confidence or make mistakes? Third, do you grant others maximum autonomy to contribute in their own way as they demonstrate their ability to deliver results? Fourth, do you consistently invite others to challenge the status quo in order to make things better, and are you personally prepared to be wrong based on the humility and learning mindset you have developed? In large measure, the way you answer these questions will define the way you value human beings and your relationships with them. It will define the way you draw people out or shut them down, create confidence or induce fear, encourage or discourage. It will determine how you lead and influence others and yourself? We welcome back for part 2 the author of “The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety: Defining the Path to Inclusion and Innovation" Timothy Clark

Excellent Content!

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.
