In this podcast, Shane speaks to Paul Hargreaves about his most recent book, The Fourth Bottom Line: Flourishing in the era of compassionate leadership.
In the book, using a mix of stories, quotes and case studies, Paul goes through 50 essential leadership qualities every leader needs in order to drive positive change in their organisations.
Paul discusses why he chose to include certain qualities and why he believes they are essential qualities of leadership. He also discusses his background, his plans for the future, and as his book has been released for a while now, he speaks on the feedback he has received and what sort of impact his book has had.
