Thinkers 50 Podcast: George Binney and Breaking Bonkers

In this podcast brought to you in partnership with the Brightline Initiative,  George Binney talks to Stuart Crainer about why he thinks leadership has become too managerial.

His book, Breaking Free of Bonkers: How to Lead in Today’s Crazy World of Organizations, written with Phil Glanfield and Gerhard Wilke, focused on how difficult it seems to be to make progress in the mad and messy world of today’s organisations.

Spending half your working life in meetings, planning and other managerial duties is not what most people signed up for.  But Binney argues that managing has gone too far and needs to be let go.
