Elon Musk famously said: “If something is important enough you should try, even if the probable outcome is failure.” In today’s VUCA world, there are hardly any guarantees anymore. Just as Whatsapp and other messaging services have bitten out billions from large established Telecom companies’ revenues, established businesses and sure-fire branches are under threat every day. If it’s not the curly haired guys in a garage, it may be an advertising fiasco, a new regulation, changing technologies, and even ageing population.

Podcast with Chris Roebuck about his key principles of transformational leadership
We are in a situation where the world chances significantly. But organisations are not adapting that fast. “One reason is that we have the amazing ability to make things more complicated than they really need to be”, says Chris Roebuck, Visiting Professor of Transformational Leadership at Cass Business School in London. He has held senior roles at UBS, HSBC and KPMG, has served in the British Army, and is one of the top Human Resources (HR) thinkers in Europe. He is a sought after advisor and the developer of “Mach 2 leadership” – “twice the speed of sound, going to the limits of what’s possible”.
We talked to Chris Roebuck ahead of his keynote speech on “Mach 2 leadership” at the HRM Expo in Cologne, on the 16th September.
