Alister Esam is a self-confessed control freak and former actuary who bootstrapped a business and worked to the point of burnout before having a leadership revelation; by embracing process as a tool for freedom and creativity - not compliance and control - he turned around his team, business and own leadership identity.
After finding a happier, more efficient way to be a successful CEO, Alister is on a mission to help others realise that process is empowering and ever-evolving.
He joined Zoe to explain how he did it (leadership experiences), discuss culture, strategy & messy people dynamics, and to chat through his new book ‘The Dirty Word: The Word That Fills People with Dread is the Key to Business Freedom’.
