Minter Dialogue with Manfred Kets de Vries
Manfred F. R. Kets de Vries is the Distinguished Clinical Professor of Leadership Development and Organisational Change at INSEAD. He has held professorships at McGill University, the Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales, Montreal, and the Harvard Business School, and has lectured at management institutions around the world. The Financial Times, Le Capital, Wirtschaftswoche, and The Economist rated Manfred Kets de Vries as one of the world’s top fifty leading management thinkers, as well as one of the most influential contributors to human resource management. He is the author, co-author or editor of over fifty books and has published over 400 papers as articles or chapters in books. We discuss the most important shifts needed in leadership, storytelling, Inner Theatre Inventory, authentizotic organisations and some of the other key concepts in his new book: “The CEO Whisperer: Meditations on Leadership, Life, and Change“, one of the many books Manfred penned during the pandemic.

Music credit: The jingle at the beginning of the show is courtesy of my friend, Pierre Journel, author of the Guitar Channel. And, the new sign-off music is “A Convinced Man,” a song I co-wrote and recorded with Stephanie Singer back in the late 1980s (please excuse the quality of the sound!).
