What Are Leaders Talking About?

Relying on Data Doesn’t Make Us Innovative

Intuition still carries with it a quirky image, even though the pioneers, inventors, and business geniuses we admire at the same time often say that intuition was the secret to their success — whether it is about Steve Jobs' iPhone or Albert Einstein's theory of relativity. Doctor of Arts Asta Raami, who studies intuition, encourages people to explore the capacity of the unconscious mind. "Relying on data means looking in the rear-view mirror, but when you use intuition, you strive to see what doesn’t even exist yet."

Emotional Skills Are a Solid Part of the Core of Leadership

Social and emotional skills are not a luxury that should only be paid attention to when other "more important" things are in order. They have become a valuable currency in working life, and now workplaces are looking for individuals and experts who are good with people. Professor Timo Vuori explains why emotions have so much power in working life, and creative workers tell how millennials and Gen Z shape working life as their own.

Does Money Become Responsible with an ESG Stamp?

Sustainability, i.e., ESG, is globally the fastest-growing finance trend. It’s supposed to be able to save the world and, at the same time, yield handsome returns. But how responsible is sustainability, and who decides this? Professor Vesa Puttonen challenges the idea of ESG as a world savior and ponders whether the biggest global crisis of our time – the climate crisis – is cloaked in greenwashing while selling a clear conscience and unreal profit expectations.
