He has more than 20 years experience in Higher Education in a teaching capacity and has lectured for the Open University Business School in the area of leadership and management.

We talk about:

00:03:50 Glenns biggest realisation in life and how Glenn recognised that he is actually already supporting the community with the work he does, something he always longed for.

00:05:00 Why is it important to have a rich experience of life in order to lead, teach and coach others?

00:15:00 The challenges of giving and receiving feedback in different professional roles and developing the art of doing it sustainably.

00:26:00 What did Glenn learn from his experience of being a policeman and how that prepared him for his future career, becoming a leader and a teacher.

00:31:30 What conditions have to be met in order for an organisation to become truly sustainable and how the COVID-10 crisis could be a stimulus for change in organisations, focusing on sustainability, not profit.

00:40:54 Today simple problem solving isn’t enough anymore we need to think wider, we need to be courageous and try something different. We need to get comfortable getting out of our comfort zone to prepare for tomorrow.

00:42:00 Why are our curiosity and real-life experiences are most important for learning and developing?

00:49:00 Being authentic sometimes means choosing the harder path at the moment but in the long run, it has immense value for yourself and others.
