For this week’s Inspirational Leadership Podcast I spoke with Sesil Pir. Sesil serves as an active HR Functional Thought Leader, Founder and Principal Consultant of SESIL PIR Consulting GmbH, a boutique management consultancy, focusing on changing the status quo of work, and Founder of Whirling Chief, a global digital collaboration & learning platform, championing humanity into the global workplace.

Here are some of the topics we discussed:

  • How to unleash potential individually and collectively
  • Creating a safe and loving space for people at work
  • We discuss research that shows since the year 2000, 52% of Fortune 500 companies have completely disappeared
  • Sesil shares insights from the project she did with Standford on Human-Centered Leadership
  • The power of owning who you are
  • Why you need to look outside of your expertise if you want to find new ideas and more creative ways of thinking
  • The importance of time in nature, away from technology when our capacity is pushed to the limit
