Professor Laura Empson and David Morley uncover the complicated, messy and surprisingly emotional challenges of leading professionals.

 

The series draws on Empson’s decades of academic research into leading professionals and Morley’s many years of leading one of the world’s largest law firms, together with interviews with leaders of the most successful global professional organisations, such as McKinsey, KPMG, Allen & Overy, and London Business School, Deloitte, BBC and Channel 4.

It reveals the realities that lie beneath the ‘professional’ veneer that these highly successful individuals and their organisations present to the outside world and brings together for the first-time cutting-edge theory and first-hand experience to explore crucial leadership questions.

This podcast is for anyone who has – or aspires to have – a leadership role in a law firm, consultancy, partnership, hospital, university, investment bank, media company, investment management, or other professional organisation, who wants to challenge assumptions, develop explanations and explore new solutions.
