The unexpected world of business podcast - Henley Business School Finland

Personal Development… A manifesto for self-awareness

The unexpected world of business is a podcast series by Henley Business School that explores topics you wouldn’t normally associate with business.

In this podcast, we ask the question: Is self-awareness the key to effective leadership?

Dr Chris Dalton, Associate Professor of Management Learning and Leadership at Henley Business School, joins host Naeema Pasha to explore the world of personal development at work, with tips from Chris’ Manifesto of Wisdom in Learning, a discussion of awareness and humility, and the importance of listening to your team.
