Podcast interview with Harry Kraemer, Jr. who is a professor of management and strategy at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, where he teaches in the MBA and the Executive MBA programs. He is an executive partner with Madison Dearborn Partners (MDP) which is one of the largest private equity firms in the United States.
Here we will be talking about the following queries:
• What is the meaning of value-based leadership and how does that differ from other forms of leadership?
• How does a leader demonstrate in the best way possible?
• Nowadays, people are less reflective as they get so consumed in different activities and other devices that are demanding their attention. This is something that you need to very deliberate about. Isn’t it actually separating you to be reflective because it almost counters to the pervasive culture?
It is a challenge for the organizations – how they can organize themselves to provide some of the additional value to their employees. The changing structure of work is the fact that now people can live and operate pretty much wherever they want to be. They can be completely mobile and don’t have to be tied to a place or a physical building. All of these things have really challenged leadership. It’s up to you how you harness all the benefits of this collapsing in chaos!
