In the second of our Leadership Insights films, Randall Peterson invites four leading figures from the business world to talk about who they confide in and why.

Great confidants can be your eyes and ears in an organisation. They can tell you what’s really going on – at the right time, in the right way. They can tell you if you’re wrong and give you a valuably different perspective on a situation.

Watch the 3-minute video to hear who Johnson Matthey’s Robert MacLeod, Cobra Beer’s Lord Karan Bilimoria, former Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley and Premier Model Management’s Carole White turn to when they need an honest opinion.

This film is part of a series on Leadership Insights. Watch 'best advice for leaders'.
