The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is currently in the process of talking to leadership figures from across the nation in an attempt to understand this universal trait and what it means in Britain and Northern Ireland today.
Marishelle Butler from The Country House Company, an independent property agency based in Hambledon, was invited onto an episode of the podcast, which also included an interview with Geoff Hurst. Host Matthew O’Neill asked both guests a series of questions about leadership and the role it has played in their careers to date.
Matthew O’Neill commented, ‘Hosting a show like this, where you speak to genuine leaders who have been there and done it, either on a national stage or within a crucial industry sector, is an absolute honour.’
Marishelle was delighted to have the opportunity to take part in the project commenting that ‘it is vital that we adapt to the changing needs and expectations of the work force. The generation that is coming into the workplace now is full of inspiring ideas, understanding of advances in technology and is very aware of environmental issues. To have the opportunity to discuss differing ideas on leadership and getting the very best out of the workforce, for the individual team members, companies and British industry as a whole, is very inspiring as we enter this next exciting decade.’
Lord Blunkett, chairman of The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland said, ‘I think the most informative element of each episode is the first part, where Matthew O’Neill is able to sit down with someone who really gets how their industry works and knows how to make their organisation tick. Someone who’s there day in day out working hard and inspiring others. That’s what leadership is all about.’
