Welcome to the world of undercover policing and hostage negotiation. Kevin O’Leary joins me in this very first episode of The Leadership Enigma. Kevin spent 30 years as a Metropolitan Police Detective, 8 years as the Head of Covert Policing Unit and was part of the command team for the London Olympics. Oh, by the way, he is also the advisor and referee for the award-winning Channel 4 show ‘Hunted’ and the Sky series ‘The Heist’ What could possibly go wrong in this first episode?
This episode focuses on ‘The Commanders Intent’ as a way to create and communicate a clear message as to what success looks like even during chaos.
I chat to Kevin about how The Commanders Intent has helped him in covert high stakes operations and about how it translates across to the modern leader and promotes adaptive leadership.
Kevin was also responsible for the amazing experiential learning event called ‘Operation Benedict’ that has been delivered to organisations all over the world including as part of the Google (GBA) Global Business Academy.
