Star Trek is full of great examples of leadership. Jeff Akin, a leader with over 20 years of executive management experience in both the public and private sectors, breaks down each episode of Star Trek, from The Original Series to Discovery (and possibly beyond) and points out examples of great leadership, management, lean/six-sigma, communication and more. If you enjoy Star Trek, or are even a little Trek-curious, and have an appetite for leadership development, this is the podcast for you.
On this episode, Jeff Akin reviews Star Trek Discovery, The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry (Season 1, Episode 4). He will examine the leadership approaches of Captain Lorca and Commander Saru.
Saru demonstrates how to support an idea that he doesn't agree with. Michael Burnham reinforces the lessons we learned in TOS: The Devil in the Dark. And Lorca is...well...he's terrible.
