Hi there, I’m Ben Morton and welcome to my podcast.
The aim of the show is to really dig into the art and science of leadership through interviews with MDs, CEOs and other senior leaders. In doing so, I’m going to try and decode and identify all of the things that we can do to become even better leaders for our organisations and those that we have the privilege and responsibility to lead.
I've been working with an incredibly talented artist to create a set on fantastic visual summaries of the first five episodes. To grab the full set simply click this link, enter your details and we'll fire them straight across to you via email.
In this episode, episode number 2, I’m joined by Phil Jones who is the Managing Director of the UK arm of the multi-national Information, Communication and Technology Manufacturer - Brother.
I first met Phil around six years ago and was immediately struck by his passion for leadership and building a great culture that makes others feel safe whilst enabling them to perform at the highest level. When I started thinking about launching this podcast, I knew that I had to have Phil on the show and I’m delighted to have him as my first guest.
In this episode, which was recorded early on in the COVID-10 lockdown, we covered a lot of ground including things like leading in a crisis and the importance of being clear on your personal vision, mission, values and guiding principles. We also look at life goals, horizon scanning and dropping the mask.
So, without any further delay, enjoy my conversation with Phil Jones.
