Conference 2014 video. Lord David Owen: Historic ‘toe-holders’ and time limits
“I should start with one of the most charismatic politicians of the 20th Century, Franklin D Roosevelt. He was not a consensual figure; he knew how to hate… he was hubristic in the sense that many politicians and leaders are hubristic but I don’t think he ever developed Hubris Syndrome…. (because) in his life he had people who he encouraged to disagree with him.”
Lord David Owen, Clinical Neurologist and Psychiatric Registrar, St Thomas’s London, Former UK Minister of Health and Foreign Secretary discusses ‘Historic ‘toe-holders’ and time limits’. Recorded at the Daedalus Trust-RSM conference ‘Leadership; stress and hubris’ in London, November 2014.
