Summer Re-Release: Giving up Perfection with Tania Tetlow, President of Fordham University

  1. Summer Re-Release: Giving up Perfection with Tania Tetlow, President of Fordham University 44:05

Original Aired Date: 8/10/22

It’s tempting to believe that if leaders strive to maintain an aura of perfection, this masking act will then trickle down throughout our organization and make everyone want to be better. Today, Michelle and Tania Tetlow, Current and first woman President of Fordham University, are here to share stories as to why this couldn’t be further from the truth of leading effectively. Tania’s reflections on her most meaningful moments in academic leadership will prove that moments of imperfection as leaders are often when we achieve the greatest level of trust with our teams. And as Michelle argues, it’s not until we have this trust and resulting connection that our organizations are poised to strive for greatness, without the false pretense of perfection.
