Are you a fox or a hedgehog? Check out this podcast!
During this 24 minute podcast, I chat with John Kay, author of Obliquity: Why Our Goals are Best Achieved Indirectly. For those of you who manage others, set goals, create stratgy, and/or strive to build a great workplace and life, this podcast and book is for you. John, who is a well-regarded economist and has taught at institutions such as Oxford and the London School of Econimics, brings the idea of obliquity - an indirect and adaptive approach - to many aspects of life in his book (it is not a book about economics). Listen and learn why John is a critic of reengineering practices, why the most profitable companies are not the most profit oriented, and why the happiest peopple are not those who puruse happiness.
