Leadership and The Workplace

Leadership Unleashed

Lesley Hunter

Leadership Unleashed – To be an Entrepreneurial Leader you need Cognitive Ambidexterity!

The business landscape is changing and one thing we can be certain is that what worked in the past won’t necessarily work next time. Leaders need to develop more entrepreneurial skills to be able to navigate the global crossroads and learn to make choices and decisions in different ways. Entrepreneurial leaders now have a critical role to play in large organisations if they are to develop sustainability and survive in the competitive global market of the 21st century.

On this show, Lesley talks to Dr. Susan Laing – Director of Executive Education for Innovation and Enterprise at Edinburgh Napier University Business School – about her experience of leading and developing new programmes in entrepreneurial learning and their new Masters in Entrepreneurial Leadership (MEL). Susan explains some of the cutting edge thinking in entrepreneurial leadership and outlines how these skills can apply to leaders in everyday situations and all walks of life.
