Interview with Henley Business School Africa Dean Jon Forster-Pedley
What is the root cause of the problems we hear repeated so often in our boardrooms? As a disillusioned junior manager, how do I inspire or motivate my staff? And how do we easily and effectively connect with those around us? These are just a few of the questions we pose to Tracey Swanepoel, a business strategist, creative consultant, and firm believer that "the shortest distance between two people is a story", during this #AskAnExpert conversation here on Henley Business Radio.
During this #AskAnExpert conversation, Gareth Armstrong enjoys the company and insights of Paula Quinsee, a relationship expert, author, and speaker. They discuss the ins and outs of personal and professional relationships, as well as the intersection of the two and how to navigate these sometimes tricky waters. Other questions include: How do you define emotional baggage? What does compromising in a relationship really mean? And what is the link between profit and relationships?
