Ep.65: Guest episode with the Dr Jason Fox – Rogue Scholar, Best Selling Author and Wizard Philosopher

May 30, 2023

In Episode 65, The Occupational Philosophers chat with Dr Jason Fox a wizard-philosopher masquerading as a leadership advisor. His clients include the senior leadership teams of Fortune 500 companies around the world including Microsoft, Toyota, Honda, Sony, Salesforce,  KPMG,  The International Institute of Research (not to mention: financial institutions, universities, telcos, government agencies, insurers, software developers, associations, intergovernmental forums, and so on).

He has lectured at three universities (systems and behaviour), and is the bestselling author of ‘The Game Changer’ and ‘How to Lead a Quest’ and his Museletter is read by more than 11,000 folk around the world.

In addition to serving as a leadership adviser, Dr Fox is also a globally in-demand keynote speaker who works particularly well with sceptical audiences who have ‘seen it all before’, and in 2016 he was awarded Keynote Speaker of the Year.

He lives with an illustrator-veterinarian and a cat called ‘π’ in an old chocolate factory in Melbourne, Australia. When not liberating the world from the delusion of progress, He enjoys partaking in extreme sports such as reading, sun avoidance and coffee snobbery.

In this episode, they explore:

  • How teams and organisations can make meaningful progress and not suffer under the ‘delusion of progress’ 
  • What is ‘anti-fragile brooding’ and how doubt is key to progress
  • When is a good time to give audiences a good ‘intellectual spanking’?
  • What does curiosity look like?
  • The value of just being together as a team and allowing the ‘fireside chats’ to emerge at the end of the day
  • Why finding your own ‘Suicide Squad’ is the key to fellowship and creativity

As ever they throw in a few ‘Thought Experiments’, this time they have:

  • Philosophy or Foolosophy?
  • Listeners questions
