What we’re reading, watching and listening

In this poignant and funny Ted Talk, Brené Brown talks about how being vulnerable and open builds self-awareness and connection with others- vital ingredients for authentic leadership.


Neuroscientist Stuart Firestein suggests we should value what we don’t know — or “high-quality ignorance” — just as much as what we know – that ignorance is far more important to discovery than knowledge.   Witty and insightful.


Mastermind How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes

A great book on how our mind works with a particular focus on how to be a more effective observer.   Accessibly written it contrasts how Sherlock Holmes thinks versus Doctor Watson.  Robust science behind it all and with relevant leadership insights and observations.
