Welcome to another AusTTA podcast. AusTTA host John Lawrance is joined by Dr Shari Read, Transformation Management & Leadership lecturer at the Australian National University, along with Jack Story, DXC Public Sector Chief Technologist ANZ Region.
Shari has researched and taught extensively on human-centred leadership including identity work, future of work and transformational leadership. Jack has held various leadership roles in both the US Air Force as a pilot and more recently in the private sector as a technologist. Together we explore the role of situational awareness, identity and attentional intelligence in Transformational Leadership.
The podcast begins with a discussion on the meaning of Transformational Leadership, including the distinction between Transformational Leaders and leading transformations. This is followed by a discussion on the importance of job/culture fit, diversity and the importance of being “knowledge hunters”.
