I'm Jude Jennison, Founder of Leaders by Nature, a leadership and team development company. As business undergoes substantial change, leaders need to keep up with new ways of leading and communicating. Hierarchy, command and control are outdated and need to make way for flexibility, adaptability, creativity. I'm interested in how business can be a force for good in the world and contribute to the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals by adopting the 5 Cs - Courage, Compassion, Clarity, Connection and Commitment.
I work with a herd of horses to uncover default patterns of leadership behaviour. If you want disruptive change, you need to be disruptive in your leadership development. For more information, you can find me on all the social media channels as Jude Jennison and check out my website at www.judejennison.com
Jude Jennison introduces Innovating Humanity the official Birmingham Tech podcast
Welcome to Rethinking Leadership podcast. I’m Jude Jennison, the host of this podcast and Founder of Leaders by Nature, a leadership and team development company. I work with senior leadership teams to help them align through behavioural change.
I'm pausing the rethinking leadership podcast for the next four weeks, because I've just launched the Innovating Humanity podcast, which is the official podcast for Birmingham Tech week.
I'll be interviewing leaders from technology businesses who are at the forefront of changing how we live and work and I’m asking them to share the great work they are doing and challenging them to reflect on how we use technology to be more human and let technology enhance our lives.
I hope you find the conversations as enlightening and inspiring as I do.
How does technology enhance your life and work? And how can you use it more consciously to be more human?
