Episode 26 of the Curve Benders Podcast on Speaking Truth to Power with Megan Reitz, is live. I first met Megan at the Thinkers 50 gathering in London last November. She had me at hello, as she is incredibly personable, deliberate in her verbal communication, and insightful in her research.
As you’ll hear in our conversation, Megan is a facilitator, teacher, speaker, executive coach, researcher, and author dedicated to exploring and finding ways to improve the way we interact with one another in the workplace. Her passion and curiosity centers around the quality of how we meet, see, hear, speak, learn with and encounter one another in organizational systems and how we might encourage dialogue which is more humane, and which enables us, our colleagues, and our society to flourish.
Working at the intersection of leadership, change, dialogue and mindfulness, she has presented her research to audiences throughout the world and has been recognized by Thinkers50 Radar of global management thinkers and the 2018 HR Most Influential list of Thinkers.
Her recent research with John Higgins on ‘Speaking Truth to Power’ – examining how perceptions of power enable and silence others – has been featured in four articles in Harvard Business Review. It is the subject of her TEDx talk and her new book, Speak Up: Say what needs to be said and hear what needs to be heard, with Financial Times Publishing.
In the opening section of the podcast, I also reference my recent The Way I See It…Innovative Teams Thrive Through Visionary Leaders. Hope you’ll get a chance to read the rest of the article.
It was lovely to have Megan on this podcast. Head over to the Nour Forum for the show notes including references to Megan’s other books, articles, and videos.
Enjoy the podcast,
