This is one of my favourite interviews from the archives. Mike Tobin OBE shares so much wisdom here he even tells some funny stories about the time he took his management team to swim with sharks without telling them!
In this episode Mike shares his decades of management experience in how to manage stress and how to develop a work-life integration, clearly, commercial awareness is thrown in for good measure...
Mike had been talking to his management team for some time, about merging with a big competitor, and all the management team could see was the negatives of what they would see, and what those synergies mean. You know, two people one job going forward and potentially they would be in competition or lose their jobs. So Mike decided to get them to swim with sharks and various other management "fun" days out!
Mike's books are both on Amazon. Kindle and audiobook.
First one is Forget Strategy, Get Results. It’s a little bit of an alternative view on leadership. And the second one is Live, Love, Work Prosper, which is kind of a fresh, fresh approach to integrating life and work as opposed to trying to find a balance.
