6 November 2023

In a world where the dynamics of leadership are constantly evolving, understanding the essence of effective leadership is crucial. This episode of The ONE Thing Podcast sheds light on the modern-day nuances of leading with a blend of intellect and empathy, featuring the wisdom of Dr. Kirstin Ferguson—an award-winning author, recognized thinker, and a seasoned leader with a wealth of experience spanning over three decades.

Dr. Ferguson unravels the essence of modern leadership in her latest book, Head and Heart: The Art of Modern Leadership. This book is not just a guide, but a mirror reflecting the virtues indispensable for a contemporary leader. Our conversation dives deep into the pragmatic yet compassionate facets of leadership, emphasizing the significance of self-awareness, feedback, and the undervalued power of every individual as a leader, regardless of title or position.

Dr. Ferguson shares actionable insights on nurturing a culture of feedback, the importance of having a coach for an objective perspective, and how the seemingly small moments of leadership are the building blocks of a monumental impact. Her perspective on measuring, giving, and receiving feedback resonates with the philosophy of having a mentor to guide you, to provide a fresh perspective in gauging your progress towards your goals.

We talk about:

  • Recognizing moments of leadership in your life
  • Leading from the heart and leading from the head
  • Admitting when you don’t have the answers
  • Giving and receiving feedback
