Why is it that less talented teams sometimes outperform others that have more skill and experience? Check out this podcast!
During this 34 minute podcast, I chat with Jeffrey Kluger, author Simplexity: Why Simple Things Become Complex (And How Complex Things Can Be Made Simple). Jeffrey is a senior editor and writer at Time magazine, principally covering science and social issues.
If you are like me - interested in how things work and complexity science particular - you will love this podcast. It SOOOO relates to how we manage our businesses, manage people and make decisions. Jeffrey offers up some great stories (including some from the Apollo mission - he co-wrote the best selling book Apollo 13 with Astronaut James Lovell, based on which the movie was made). We talk about guppies and a logic that would conclude telemarketers ought to get paid more than CEOs. Yes, you will want to listen to this one!
