    8. Leadership from Scratch - Jacqueline Novogratz

    In the last episode of this season, Tamar speaks about leadership with Jacqueline Novogratz, who has been named one of the Top 100 Global Thinkers by Foreign Policy and one of the world’s 100 Greatest Living Business Minds by Forbes. Jacqueline is a New York Times bestselling author and the Founder of Acumen, with which she aims to change the way the world tackles poverty. They speak about Jacqueline’s journey - starting her career in the old system of leadership and business, and how it led her to wanting to change the system. Jacqueline proposes a new kind of leadership called ‘moral leadership’, where we hold opposing tensions and emphasise the ‘we’ over the ‘I’. Finally, they speak about how each of us can contribute to a new vision of leadership by changing the way we define success, and how we can each give more than we take.
