From Working On Plutarch to Working With Plutarch

Dr. Mallory Monaco Caterine discusses her study of Plutarch’s biographies and how the 2016 U.S. Presidential election revealed how relevant they are to contemporary, ethical leadership. That insight led her to form her own company dedicated to comprehensive and inclusive leadership development through the study of the humanities.

Long Life Learning

Life long learning, fueled by a combo of curiosity and humility, is the key to a successful career. R. Ethan Braden, AMA’s 2020 Marketer of the Year, discusses how he encourages learning in his leadership team as well as his own personal life hacks for staying well informed and exploring new things.

A Good Challenge for Me

Jill Arensdorf discusses her transition from leadership professor to Provost and the challenges of putting what she knows about leadership into practice and trying to permeate the institution with leadership concepts that work.

Leadership and Artificial Intelligence

Cal Al-Dhubaib, Founder/CEO of AI Strategist of Pandata, discusses the use of AI in business processes and how leaders can prepare themselves and their teams to take advantage of AI.

Practice as a Way of Being

Podcasts can systematize your learning, introduce you to the next book on your list and introduce you to phrases that stick. Scott and David Fearon discuss David’s podcast with and for Peter Vaill as well as some film and TV with valuable leadership lessons.

No Shared Notion of Reality

Dr. Suze Wilson discusses the intersections of disinformation, trust, and leadership. People are not prepared to tolerate any discomfort or sacrifices needed to address big challenges like climate change or pandemics. Instead they reject science and embrace conspiratorial ideas. One possible antidote is increasing the power and authority of trusted community leaders.
