Leaders eat last. A fantastic sentiment, highlighting how great leaders put themselves at the end of the queue to be sure their team are well looked after. Leaders show a parental love for those under their care and engender a reciprocal exchange of respect as a result. This is something within us all, a biological possibility ingrained since humans began socialising, and something I aspire to achieve.
I am working my way through two books at the moment, the one that is moving the fastest (because it has pride of place on my bedside table so has been allocated the prime “bedtime read” slot) is Leaders Eat Last. The author is also one of the most-watched videos on TED, so well worth 18 minutes of your time. The other book, though equally brilliant and useful (The First 90 Days), is not riddled with a cunning mix of science, sociology and history brought together in tightly -woven sentences that delight the mind at every turn.
This week we kick off the first in a series of lunchtime training sessions where we begin to build conversations with champions of industry and how we can elevate and communicate their insights. The intention is to extend a well-oiled machine onto digital channels, maintaining the already excellent quality levels whilst stepping into slightly unusual territory. Wish us luck, both with the training and with eating last.
