In his book Leading by Nature Giles Hutchins exposes the toxic leadership he says has slowed the shift to a more sustainable world proposing a model that can take the breaks off.
“We are malleable, we are plastic, we are open, we are conscious, emotional, cognitive, spiritual beings,” Giles told me on the Inside Ideas podcast. “And much of the time we are woefully unaware of our potency and impact, and our ability to be programmed.”
This process of being programmed, he says, is something we need to be aware of.
“Unlearning and relearning is in itself a bit of an evolution because it’s always here, always has been and always will be. So we’re not actually inviting in a whole host of new things for us to equip ourselves with, we’re just opening our eyes.”
