A ThinkIn with Matthew Barzun on The Power of Giving Away Power

Pretending is exhausting. So it’s surprising how many of us get up every day and do exactly that under the banner of ‘leadership’. Matthew Barzun, former US ambassador to the UK and, yes, chair and co-founder of Tortoise, joins us to talk about the myths as well as a new model for leadership. We’ll learn about the difference between ‘pyramids’ and ‘constellations’ – one of the reasons Tortoise is wary of triangles. And we’ll consider what his ideas mean both for how we live and work as well as the US’ leadership in the world.
