‘Influence Me’ Leadership Podcast 9 - Dr. Adrian d’Hage - Leadership under Duress

There’s nothing as good as talking with individuals who have lived a full and challenging life, particularly one enriched with many leadership moments.  Adrian d’Hage’s life is rich with experience, including his life as a soldier, commencing as a platoon commander and serving in the Vietnam war.  He was awarded the Military Cross for ‘gallantry during active operations against the enemy’.  He then subsequently rose to the rank of Brigadier, and on concluding his military career, he successfully transitioned into a life as a popular and talented author.  It’s a privilege to have Adrian as my Podcast 9 guest.  This guy knows something about leadership under duress, and the choices available to leaders during these moments.

As CEO of the South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN), Dr. Elizabeth Deveny knows a thing of two about leadership.  Like most successful leaders, Elizabeth probably learnt a few things the hard way.  In this Podcast I discuss matters of values-based leadership with Elizabeth.  Martin Luther King Jr. once posed, ‘a genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a moulder of consensus’.  This Podcast explores how values-based leadership plays a central role in bringing people together for the purpose of achieving organisational success.  This is one smart lady, I really love her sense of humour and her clear commitment to human-centric leadership.  I’m so honoured to have had this chance to speak with her.
