The Leadership Series: Leadership Observations From The Front Line
Interviews with Leaders from the For-Purpose sector with Liska Turner
For-Purpose leaders are as diverse as the organisations that they lead. Every couple of months I sit down with a Leader where they share their experiences and thoughts on leading a for-purpose organisation. Early February, before COVID-19 took over and changed the way we worked in Australia, I had the pleasure of talking to Sally Loane, CEO of Financial Services Council. This interview was filled with so many great insights and advice, that I wanted to share it with you.
Listen to the interview below.
