Leaders come in all shapes and sizes

Dr Elaine

12 / 01 / 2017

In this podcast, Doctor Elaine Maxwell, associate professor of leadership at London’s Southbank University and non-executive director of Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals, talks networks – why they are important and what she gains from being a member of the HSJ Women Leaders Network.

She also shares her thoughts on why a macho style has no role in modern leadership, that motherhood shouldn’t stop women from being highly successful leaders, why new leaders should do nothing for 100 days, and the importance of female leaders being ‘a big sister’ to aspiring leaders.
