Podcast: Managing under pressure

Our guest is Tariq Riebl, who’s worked in humanitarian response for pretty much every major crisis of the last ten years. He reflects on how he got started, what keeps him going, and how to stay oriented in extraordinarily difficult circumstances.

This was a fascinating chat that will speak to anyone who has to manage in fluid, difficult situations. It’s also a powerful reminder of the values that underpin work in the humanitarian sector. (Hence our header image from the Battle of Solferino, that led to the formation of the Red Cross movement.)
