#40 Michele Gelfand - The Case for Chaotic People
26:41Which of these words feels more like you? Restraint, prevent, adhere. Or: allow, freedom, create?

And importantly, what this says about our behaviour as employees, citizens and leaders.
#39 Dr Clare Purvis - Behavioural Science at Headspace

#36 Rory Sutherland - Is Everything BS?
26:10In this episode, we relive Nudgestock 2021 where Rory Sutherland asks the question "Is everything BS?". We discover the answer lies somewhere between double dishwashers, floating nuclear power-plants and placebo vaccines. And perhaps, a little bit of the other type of BS.
