The challenges I heard last week

I’m surrounded by people with narrow, siloed perspectives. I’m not getting the innovative thinking we need to drive the business forward. Resilience is a huge problem. People just don’t have it. I need to change people’s intrinsic behaviours – can you help? Is it possible to train leadership to embrace the unknown? These are just […]

Based on the conversations that I have with many people I work with, but also, reflecting on the numerous conversations I’ve had while writing Return […]

Theory can only get us so far

So, you could just do yet another typical leadership development programme. One of those where a group of people sit in a stuffy conference room. Everyone looks at the screen, or does exercises with one another. Sometimes they work. But theory can only get us so far. What we all need for REAL change is […]

In 2001 I moved to London to get my first ‘real’ job right after the 911 attacks. The odds weren’t great as we were heading into a grim economic moment. I was lucky to secure an interview with Chris Norman, one of the partners of, then, Ideas Unlimited. And then was hired. At the time […]

Lessons from a whale and a book cover

A few weeks ago my partner’s sailboat hit a whale. He and Zé, the other sailor on board, were on the return leg of a sailing regatta from Horta/Azores to Sables d’Olonne/France, going 19 knts in the early evening, and suddenly, they heard a HUGE bang and felt an impact. They were 150 nautical miles […]
