Wondering What Next? Greta’s Unique Listening Tour

Top Tips | Episode 185

Our episode this week looks at an under-appreciated concept for reflecting on, and gaining new insights for your next career step or business idea. We go on a journey with Claire to learn about a ‘World Listening Tour’ that Greta did some years back. She had decided to leave her intense role at (RED) and wasn’t sure what she wanted to do next, nor even which country she should live in!
