An Innovative Series Designed To Elevate Your Leadership Impact
By Creating Unprecedented Conversations With Leaders & Innovators in Life Sciences.
Today’s guest on the Leader’s Agenda is Eduardo Briceño. Tarja and Eduardo sat down to talk key lessons from his book, The Performance Paradox. The performance paradox is the counterintuitive reality that if we focus only on performing, our performance suffers. To improve or innovate, we can’t spend all our time doing things as best as we know how, trying to minimize mistakes. We have to also engage in the mental state and strategies to go beyond what we know. When we do these together, we’re Learning While Doing.
Eduardo Briceño is a global keynote speaker, facilitator, and author who guides many of the world’s leading companies in developing cultures of learning and high performance. His TED and TEDx talks have been viewed more than nine million times. He is the author of The Performance Paradox, which was selected as a “Must-Read” by the Next Big Idea Club. He was shortlisted by Thinkers50 — which are the “Oscars of management thinking” — for the Breakthrough Idea Award, given to thinkers who “have ignited Eureka moments in management, offering radical ideas that have the potential to reshape the future of business as we know it.”
