A business podcast hosted by Richard Atherton & Tom van der Lubbe
Schumacher’s central thesis is that the way we approach economics improves our living standards whilst degrading our culture.
Tom and I explore the book that gave us a new word: antifragile, things that gain from disorder. Many consider Nassim Nicholas Taleb to be one of the greatest thinkers of his generation. We take a dive into Taleb’s radical case to embrace uncertainty in a new way and what it means for us in business.
Gary Hammel and Michele Zanini argue that we should be creating organisations as awesome as the people in them.
Tom and I look at this book from Amy C. Edmondson, the pioneer in the field of psychological safety at work.
Tom and I review arguably most of the influential books of the last decade: Frédéric Laloux’s Reinventing Organizations.
Richard is a partner at coaching firm FirstHuman. He is passionate about building extraordinary people-first companies. He helps leaders at all levels to realise their greatness.
Having done many years of shadow work himself, he now compassionately helps others to explore the dark as well as the light of who they are.
As well as being co-host of You Should Read This, he is the host of the acclaimed podcast Being Human.
Tom is the Co-Founder of Viisi, a financial services company that offers customized mortgage solutions for highly educated customers.
He believes we should leave the world in a better shape than it was when we were born. He experienced that life can be very short, when he had cancer when he was 20, so he wants to spend my time on things that matter.
He believes in a “why” of individuals and organisations. The “why” is the motivational engine that gives fullfillment in what we do.
