Episode 9: Gillian Tett – The Silo Effect
I chat today with Gillian Tett, author of The Silo Effect. We discuss how workplace cultures – our silos – affect how we interact with one another. You will leave this conversation with insight into how anthropologists see the world, and how to apply this to your workplace.
- “We are incredibly fragmented…and that carries a big cost.”
- “We’re all hardwired to arrange the world into mental and social boxes.”
- “We are creatures of our cultural environment.”
- “The things we don’t talk about – the social silences – are often as important as the things we do talk about.”
