3. Complexity of Mind

In episode 3 we explore complexity in the world around us and a leader's ability to navigate that complexity.


In this episode, we're talking about the complexity of mind and a leader’s ability to process the complexity around them. Your brain isn't just a repository of information, but a fundamentally unique processor that makes sense of that information. We live with so many limitations and yet we have such a lack of awareness of how limited we are. Self-awareness, curiosity, and perspective are all tutors and guides in every leader’s journey to navigate complexity.
