Interview with Stephen Bungay
Stephen is a really interesting person. He is the author of The Art of Action and has a background in consulting and history. Based on this knowledge, he wrote a couple of books about history and leadership.
In terms of leadership, there’s an area that overlooked usually from the business. However, business can learn a lot from this area. I’m talking about the military space as armies were the biggest organizations needing strong leadership for thousands of years.
In this episode, you will take a lot of learnings for your everyday life. Specifically, we also discuss the following:
- How did the Romans and French organize their military?
- What can we learn from the military’s way?
- How to give support and boundaries the right way?
- How to take action?
- How to achieve good results?
