Kevin Delaney (Ep.18): Be bold and creative

We’ve all been in that meeting during which leadership says they’re ready for change. Yet deep inside, you know that it’s the classic Innovator’s Dilemma and you’ll be sitting in that same meeting for the next 10 years. In this episode, I interview Kevin Delaney, co-founder and editor in chief of Quartz about building a company in a time of flux for the media industry and challenging many of the established norms. We discuss how his leadership philosophy has evolved, what to do when your “staff is under siege” (from deep-pocketed competitors), the differences between Gen Z/Millennials/Gen X, and the practice of writing letters to our children that they’ll read at a much later date.
