Episode 1 – A midwife, a strategist and a doctor

Jan 1, 2017

Welcome to our first episode of Radio Omnicor – our podcast about the science of business!

At Omnicor, we’re driven to understand as much as possible in the current organisational and people development space. Each episode will feature fascinating guests who will share tools and the latest thinking to help grow your own career or improve your team or business.

Our first episode opens with a highly relevant topic – strategic thinking in the current economy – and we discuss how the concept of strategic thinking has changed in the current environment.

Don’t let your business get stuck compromising with poor recruitment practices and not keeping in mind the long-term vision of the organisation. A strategy is not something you can pay lip service to! We interview Dr Hilton Rudnick from the assessment perspective, and include real case examples from current organisational contexts. He points out that “strategy is not for the CEO or MD only – you need many levels of strategic thinkers across the organisation”.

We are required almost every day to deliver in the workplace a high quality of work, and we’re faced with many deadlines and competing stakeholders. In this episode, we give SNR leaders an update on the current trends in strategy and how it is changing as the pace of business accelerates. Explore what Ian Mann, the “Midwife of Strategy”, has developed: simple and effective methods for getting the most out of teams to help them “give birth” to their very best ideas.
