Infinite Game with Brene Brown and Simon Sinek

This podcast discusses the change in leadership paradigm from short-sighted, transactional thinking to more long-term, evolving, and ongoing.

Existential flexibility — ability to do 180 turnaround on embodying new ways of being as they are discovered as more aligned with who we are — as leader, you will experience short term duress and confusion which means your people will feel that. Those around you will benefit with preparation and opportunities to work on their own existential flexibility.
