Zoë Routh Leadership Podcast

May 2, 2023

Has our pursuit of professionalism usurped our innate social abilities to work collectively and creatively for the greater good?  Samantha Slade, author, social designer and cultural anthropologist, believes so and is working with organisations and teams to help them rebalance their leadership paradigms and flatten their hierarchies. While this is not a ‘perfect or easy journey’, Sam taps into what she sees as our core human instincts of care and togetherness that have been smothered by corporate structures. Making her work both hopeful and insightful is the way it braids the three strands of past, present and future paradigms  into a new way of leading, teaming and performing.
