Leadership and the Lens
Breakthrough solutions start with assumption-challenging questions—and it’s a leader’s obligation to surface them. As
Hal Gregersen explores in his Harvard Business Review piece, leaders can learn a lot from photographers about how to lead and ask the right questions. In this video, he discusses how photography has impacted his own work as a leader and the framing questions that he asks and lives. The intersection between inquiry and images is the foundation of the MIT Sloan Executive Education workshop “Leadership and the Lens: Learning at the Intersection of Innovation and Image-Making” that Gregersen teaches with world-renowned National Geographic photographer Sam Abell.
