On my latest episode of the Authentic Leadership Podcast, I speak to the CEO of Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (GMCT), Deb Ganderton. Besides discussing Deb’s very authentic leadership style, we also talk about the future of cemeteries and the role they can play for both the living and the dead.
