In this episode, we will mention technology, but we’ll be focusing on a different kind of leadership and different approach to engagement of your teams.

Nigel will talk about compassionate leadership, and the difference between empathy and compassion.
For this episode of TWF!, we are talking about the technology topic that will, possibly, make the most significant and fundamental changes to both our business and personal lives since the dawn of the Internet. Our host and CIF CEO David Terrar interviews Dean Anthony Gratton and Sarah-Jane Gratton, well known tech influencers who have just published their book Playing God with Artificial Intelligence. I’m guessing it will be both controversial, and illuminating.
