Insights On Leadership In The Face Of Climate Change - Dr Randall S. Peterson
This episode we welcome Randall Peterson, author of Disaster in the Boardroom: Six Dysfunctions Everyone Should Understand. A widely cited expert on corporate governance and leadership, Randall has made a career out of analysing the worst of corporate behaviour.
Professor Peterson has spent the last decade as the founding director of the Leadership Institute at London Business School, where he is also Professor of Organisational Behaviour. His teaching and research draws on organisational psychology and personality analysis, to help leaders achieve better outcomes – and avoid catastrophe along the way.
Peterson talks to host Chris Caldwell and gives a fascinating insight into what happens behind the closed boardroom door.

‘… maybe we have to treat, you know, the debate about climate change in the same way we treat international relations, sometimes nuclear proliferation … like it shows that is possible … I'm always, you know, an optimist … research shows over and over is if you believe it's possible, it is possible … it doesn't make it easy.’

We talk about how the scope of the challenge before us is beyond that of any one individual or any one solution. We listen to thinkers, researchers, policymakers, and business leaders. They discuss a diversity of ideas and solutions to global climate and environmental issues and why they matter.
Season 2 is presented by Chris Caldwell and produced by UNITED RENEWABLES in association with LONDON BUSINESS SCHOOL, ALUMNI ENERGY CLUB.
