#AskAnExpert: "A great business school should be producing progress in business, not following it."

Jon Foster-Pedley – Is Business School Worth It?
During this fascinating conversation with a woman who has done so very much in her life, Jon Foster-Pedley talks to Helena Dolny about what she describes as her “gift” – the ability to sit with and empathise with those that are dying.
More than just a discussion around death though, this insightful and hugely worthwhile dialogue highlights that there is [skip to 21min] “ultimate personal leadership” that is found only in the last days of one’s life – Helena’s position is that amazing leaders like her late husband, Joe Slovo, or Nelson Mandela, whom she knew personally, didn’t get this right.
If you want to know what she means by this, how talking about death causes one live longer (with a case study), and more, take a listen to this wonderful exchange.
