Agile Leadership – A trip through 2.5 million years - Louise Elliott


What does human evolution teach us about how we should lead teams in the 21st century? This talk takes a journey covering the last 2.5 million years from a hunter and gather lifestyle to the creation of agriculture and through to the industrial revolution, in order to understand the influences which still affect us today. It asks questions such as “Why are 30% of Fortune 500 CEOs so tall?” and “Can you tell a person’s job just by looking at their face?”. It also delves into the different strategies which chimpanzees use to become the alpha male and considers whether any of them would be useful in the human world.
