Peridot Partners: Conversations with Leaders

Business & Economics Podcasts

What if you are a different type of leader? Do you look around and struggle to see people like you? Here at Peridot we're talking to leaders who lead differently. They're people who embrace qualities like empathy, vulnerability, conviction, patience, curiosity, courage and creativity to support the people around them to be the best versions of themselves. They're not afraid to talk about love - whether that's loving your career or looking after themselves and their own wellbeing. Our leaders come from all walks of life and different sectors but they all have a couple of things in common - transparency and candour when talking about their leadership journey. We're Peridot Partners and we're an executive search agency working with people who see things differently and lead better.
