The WEIRD CEO himself, Charles Towers-Clark came up with the concept for WEIRD CEO as a result of his 20 years' experience in the technology sector. His interest in the effects of new technologies on society made him realise that a radical change is needed within organisations to adapt to the seismic shift in the future of work which will be brought about by Artificial Intelligence. Armed with inspiration from some of the best leadership books from authors such as Ricardo Semler and Frederic Laloux, he decided to implement a new leadership and strategic management style within his own company, Pod Group.
He began this WEIRD process in 2015 and has documented his thoughts and experiences in his new leadership book. Pod Group is the first real-life example of the success of the WEIRD CEO management style and he is now working with companies across the globe helping them implement similar processes.
In the meantime Charles is writing more about his methods of leadership and ways to lead in world dominated by Artificial Intelligence on Forbes.com.
