ML78: Jo Cruse on Shaking up Schools,The State of Social Entrepreneurship and Learning to Lead

Discover the most important skills that people need to develop in the 21st century, the current state of the school system and the tradeoff between social impact and the bottom line in business.
Nasos Papadopoulos

Jo Cruse is the CEO of The Unreasonables, an organisation that delivers leadership programmes to the UK”s top schools. After a stint in communications and political campaigning, she taught Politics and Economics at one of the UK’s top schools, before embarking on a 9 month Macro adventure, interviewing social entrepreneurs from Alaska to Argentina.

When it comes to preparing students for the 21st century, schools and universities are behind the curve – not least because they provide a very structured environment, which leaves young people unprepared for a world that’s becoming more unstructured and chaotic by the day.

Jo is on a mission to equip young people with the tools they need to thrive and take leadership of their own lives and careers, and she’s someone who practices what she preaches, having made a number big decisions in her career and personal life in recent years.

In this conversation we discuss a range of topics including:

- The most important skills that young people need to develop in the 21st century
- The lessons Jo learned about entrepreneurship and herself on her travels
- The tradeoff between social impact and the bottom line in business

So whether you’re looking to arm yourself for the constantly changing environment of the 21st century, searching for some inspiration to take a new direction in your life or want to build a business with a social impact, this episode will give you everything you need and more.
