My conversation with Major General Fergus (Gus) McLachlan, AO (Ret’d) on leadership in the digital age has now gone live. Having served at all levels, including leadership roles overseeing some of the largest and most complex teams in Australia, Gus was able to provide invaluable insights on a host of topics. Among the issues we cover in our conversation include –
What does good leadership looks like
The impact of diversity on leadership in the contemporary workforce
The role of social media in leadership
What happens when leadership goes wrong &
Some resources for those wanting to lift their game as a leader.
