Starling Advisor Amy Edmondson Named #1 on Thinkers50

30th Nov, 2021

Every two years Thinkers50 salutes the leading business and management ideas of our age with its Ranking of Management Thinkers and awards for distinguished achievement — “the Oscars of Management Thinking.” We are delighted — and completely unsurprised — to see Starling advisor Amy Edmondson named to this year’s ranking, taking the #1 spot.

Amy is the Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at Harvard Business School — a chair established to support the study of human interactions that lead to the creation of successful enterprises that contribute to the betterment of society.

"Amy's work on psychological safety in the workplace has shifted perceptions among leaders in every industry as to how they create best conditions for high-performing teams,” said Starling founder and CEO Stephen Scott. ”And as banking sector regulators worldwide have observed, Amy's work on psychological safety is also critical to how firms minimize risk governance failures, misconduct, and organizational dysfunction,” Scott added.

Amy's most recent book, The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation and Growth (Wiley, 2019), offers a practical guide for organizations serious about success in the modern economy and has been translated into 15 languages.  We are incredibly proud and fortunate to enjoy Amy’s guidance as we build next-generation governance tools.

Congratulations Amy!
