Episode notes

“In future, I expect that everybody will have climate resilience and climate mitigation as part of their roles.” 

Penny Joseph is the Head of Climate Resilience at major Australian electricity provider Ausgrid, but when she began her career, this type of role didn’t exist.  

As the climate heats up and more industries are feeling the effects of changing weather, Penny explains to The Business Of host Dr Juliet Bourke that roles like hers will become the norm. 

How are the leaders of tomorrow learning the necessary skills to thrive in a climate-changed world - like keeping a team motivated to achieve long-term goals as we transition to a more resilient future? Professor Frederik Anseel shares his insights on “the progress principle” with structure to keep your team focused on the goal.
