446: Matthew Taylor: CEO RSA Speaks Creatively
Today’s guest joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast interview is a man who since 2006 has performed the role of Chief Executive of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) in the United Kingdom.
Now if that’s doesn’t mean anything to you, then let’s give you an understanding of the mission, and of course the size of the task that he has taken on.
The RSA Boldly state this as “creating the conditions for the enlightened thinking and collaborative action needed to address today’s most pressing social challenges.
We serve this mission by acting as a global hub, by enabling millions of people to access the most creative ideas, by nurturing networks of innovators, and through researching, testing and sharing practical interventions.”
So if you are sitting at your desk, thinking big dreams, and craving the individual freedom to make your own decisions then you have already tapped into this mission.
You are our guests target audience.
You are someone who is eager to live a creative life.
But how do you do it?
How do you go against the status quo and the conditioning of life.
How do you start moving towards something that seems at the start too big for you to create?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr Matthew Taylor.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How companies and organisations are frightened to hand over control to the employees, and such are holding themselves back from true progress and innovation.
Why performers will always critique themselves more harshly than they need to, dissecting their performance in away that isn’t helpful.
Why he is focused on leaving a legacy that can be taken forward by his organisation when a new challenge beckons for him.
Why the entrepreneurial spirit isn’t something that should be encouraged in everyone as the world needs employees to function.
