Welcome to Season 4 Episode 11
Like all good superhero stories, today’s episode will take you on a journey of discovery into modern leadership.
Anne Koopmann-Schmidt is an engineer from Germany, but has travelled the world in her career. Her discussion starts with bias in the workforce and how old–fashioned ideals of leadership – power and authority – need to be a thing of the past. Once you focus on your strengths and not your weaknesses, this will unlock the power to overcome your bias and allow you to become a more productive and inspiring leader.
“focus on what’s right with people and not what’s wrong”
Anne is one of the 2020 Most Innovative Engineers.
