Today’s world is being shaken by geopolitical and economical shifts that include the coming to power of President Trump, Brexit and the rise of nationalism. The world is in a state of flux and leaders are being blindsided by waves of populism.

In the Leadership Lab Podcast, best-selling author Chris Lewis and megatrends analyst Dr. Pippa Malmgren explain why many of the leadership lessons we’ve learned from the 20th century no longer apply in the 21st century.

Inspired by the recently released, best-selling book, the nine-episode series shares how listeners can adapt to political, social and technological changes to strengthen their own leadership narratives. By understanding how geopolitical and economical forces interact, listeners can develop a real intuition on how to deal with the global currents. Covering economics, infrastructure, media, geopolitics, technology, psychology and popular culture, the Leadership Lab Podcast is a must-listen for all types of leaders and executives.
