Here are some key takeaways from this episode:
The Need to Think Critically.
“When I say critical I don’t mean being negative, I’m talking about recognising the bias and the norms that are so taken for granted that they often don’t get challenged or even recognised”
Generic Research has its limitations
“I raised the question in the show but I spent more time highlighting that most leadership research to date is performed on a homogenous group, typically white males. This means that it’s unclear if generic leadership advice is useful for stigmatised groups and the paper suggested that it might not be useful all of the time.”
A Pragmatic Approach is required:
“Part of the challenge in what we talk about here is managing the discomfort of operating in an unfair workplace while balancing the pragmatic day to day experiences of crafting a career.”
