With a podcast title in homage to Monty Python's 'Life of Brian', the guys discuss the Four Directional Influence Model from their book "I Need To F***ing Talk T You The Art Of Difficult Workplace Conversations'.
In the absence of a real f***ing guest Russell dons a deerstalker hat and tweed coat to discuss his previous role as a consultant at Scotland Yard, when he first encountered this influence model and Ken assumes the mantle of interviewer with the consummate ease of Peter Mansbridge.
Hope you enjoy listening to Episode 19 for this f***ing awesome conversation about Russell's work at Scotland Yard.
