Kate Billing is the Founder & Creative Director of Blacksmith, a specialist leadership development practice committed to the forging of human-centred leaders and fully human organisations.
For the past 25 years Kate has worked in the people, culture and leadership space, building a reputation for sharp insights, compassionate challenge, warmth, and energy.
Kate believes it’s time for a new kind of leader: human-centred leaders who together will create the world we need for our shared future. Leaders who are examples of what’s possible when we commit to the highest levels of humanity and responsibility in the ways that we live, lead and work.
A lot of ground is covered during this episode in terms of discussions topics, (all related to vulnerability of course) including, toxic positivity, how the term midlife crisis should be rebranded as midlife awakening, the definition of productivity and the importance of space (all topics that I LOVE talking about hence why this is one of our longest episodes to date). On top of this Kate also shares her personal story and experiences around the big V.
