    Why Leaders Needs to Encourage Their Teams to Fail!

    Why Leaders Needs to Encourage Their Teams to Fail!

    Welcome to Episode 9 of The Leadership Detectives.

    In this episode, we take a deep dive into the concept of "failure".

    "Failure" has become a dirty word in the world of leadership, and it has been subjected to a reframing of context.

    Is it better to fail often? To aim high, even if you don't reach? And just because you fail, does that make you a failure?

    How to Be Calm Under Pressure: Leadership Lessons From a Bomb Disposal Expert with Chris Hunter QGM

    How to Be Calm Under Pressure: Leadership Lessons From a Bomb Disposal Expert with Chris Hunter QGM

    In this episode, we’re joined by Chris Hunter QGM, author, bomb disposal expert, and former British Army officer.
    And when it comes to topics like fear of failure there are few better placed than Chris who has had to view failure as meaning someone losing their life.
    We start by talking about why Chris joined the Military and the words that his father gave him on his death bed that shaped his life. Looking at leadership, we break down lessons he learned in the Military such as knowing what your boss is trying to achieve and having the ability to influence the greater good. Chris gives us invaluable insight on a great example of leadership that he’s had when advising on the 7/7 London bombings and on dealing with the fear of failure.

    Welcome to Episode 7 of The Leadership Detectives.

    In this episode, we look back on some of our recent interviews in order to double down on some of the most salient points our guests have made.

    We highlight the importance of authenticity and why it is becoming even more vital in the modern leadership world.

    We also discuss why humility is crucial for a leader to inspire those around them, delving into why "being soft" is often much braver than the "old school" management styles we may have grown up with.
