Timm Urschinger from LiveSciences and Teal Network and talk about control and how it manifests in our lives and leadership. We start by following Timm in his life’s journey and along the way, discuss the manner in which our inner world (our needs, motivations, and fear) and outer world (other people, institutions, organizations, and systems) reinforce our need for control. Timm’s experiences of working in a traditional corporate setting as well as leading an organization that prides itself in being “radical self-organized” provide a unique view into how leadership must evolve in sync with the world around us.
I thoroughly enjoyed Timm’s astute observations, his no-b******t-let’s-get-real way of speaking, and friendly banter - I hope you do too.
