In this episode, Vice Chancellor Simone Buitendijk and Dr Cheryl Hurst discuss the current challenges facing academics, including overwork, the struggle for perfectionism, and the narrow definition of excellence. They focus on how leaders can harness digital transformation after the pandemic to hold onto changes that have worked well while also building back the personal connections we have been missing.
