In this episode, I present to you Part II of my conversation with ex-Bomb Disposal Officer, Change Manager and leadership author, Ben Sawyer.

Ben has an incredible story. He fulfilled his boyhood dream to be the guy in the big suit walking down the street to defuse the explosive threat. He now works as a Change Manager with one of the largest publishers in the world, The Oxford University Press.

In this concluding segment, we talk:
- His favoured strategy for change management
- Staying one step ahead of the terrorists in Afghanistan
- Improving bomb disposal technology with no budget
- Agility in the military
- Ben's biggest failure as a leader and lessons for workplace stress
