Unravelling the founder’s dilemma – with Gendry Morales
The art of management requires an appreciation of context. As a founder of a company, you lead a team of pioneers without a map, but as the company becomes established your leadership style must change to get the best out of your team in different situations.
Andrew Blain and Gendry Morales have had very different leadership journeys. Gendry was a general manager in a leading financial services company before establishing a startup in emerging technology. Andrew went from leading small teams to founding a consultancy that now employs over 100 people. Join them as they offer a founder’s guide to contextually appropriate leadership, sharing the frameworks they’ve developed to help leaders to navigate different problem domains. They’ll apply these frameworks to their own dilemmas; analysing how they may have better approached scenarios with the benefit of this context-sensitive leadership framework.
