Have you ever worked or volunteered in an organisation where it felt toxic? It’s likely a result of poor leadership and culture. Expert leadership scientist Dr Darja Kragt joins the show to discuss leadership and culture in emergency management, and what leadership looks like now and into the future.
Darja shares with Andrew and Josh the importance of emergency management and key challenges when leading volunteers. She explains the science behind leadership, influencing in a hierarchical culture of command and control, measuring culture and how to address improvements to the culture of an organisation.
Darja is a leadership consultant and founder of The Leading Lab. She is a lecturer in work psychology at the University of Western Australia School of Psychological Science, and has recently completed a project working with the Western Australia SES.
