A descendant of the Wakka Wakka and Kulluli First Nations People, Kylee is a consummate storyteller embracing indigenous wisdom to transform the way we think, listen, live and lead.

Her mission is to unlock the hidden potential of emerging leaders with the transformative power of deep listening. Ignite your passion. Grow your influence. Amplify the impact you have in the world.

It doesn’t make sense that we expect leaders to come with all of the answers.  Whether it’s the pace or size of disruption in changing structures or refining strategies, the adoption of new technology which can be superseded by the time it’s implemented, or the rapid pace of growth in the latest fintech environments, the impact on an executive weighs heavily.  So heavily, that it’s having a massive impact on executive burnout.

In 2008 the average tenure of an executive in Australia was 5 years, in 2018 it was 3 years. This year, the average tenure for an executive is estimated at only 18 months!

What’s going on and how does a leader keep up the pace with such rapid growth and change?

Join me on today’s episode of The Uncharted Leader as I talk with Dexter Cousins, the Founder and Managing Director of Tier One People, an Executive Search Consultancy working with world class Fintech companies on the right leadership talent.

Dexter is an industry thought leader in talent and leadership. He is the host and creator of the FinTech AU podcast and, was this year, recognised as one of LinkedIn’s Top 20 Voices of Australia.
