Josie Gibson is a former journalist fascinated by how so few people pull off complex stuff and most others fail. She now runs a group for unique changemakers, The Catalyst Network, coaches and mentors executives and would-be leaders, and works on the occasional mega-project to keep herself grounded in real work life.
Richard Claydon's work examines ironic management and organisational misbehavior. He is CEO of RoundPegz, a community of disruptive thinkers and rebel talents helping leaders and companies better manage the turbulence of and cope with the Black Swans of the contemporary business environment. He teaches the Leadership Module for Macquarie Business School's Global MBA program.
