How to lead when you don’t have all the answers

–  With Olli-Pekka Heinonen, Finnish National Agency for Education,
& Patrick Furu, TalentMiles

Leaders and organisations today are faced with more complex problems than ever before. How can leaders enable people in the organisation to solve those problems when they themselves don’t have the right answers? In what ways can leaders create trust that allows people to solve problems collectively? What can leaders do to bring people together to generate change? How is learning essential for leaders?

In this podcast, Olli-Pekka Heinonen, Director General at Finnish National Agency for Education and, among other things, former Minister of Education, shares his view on how tomorrow’s leadership differs from the past. Olli-Pekka is leading the educational system ranked as the best in the world. Join to hear how he thinks leaders should be passionate about learning.

The conversation is hosted by Patrick Furu, Chief Strategist of TalentMiles and Adjunct Professor.
