What skills do we need for the future?

I'm delivering some serious face-to-face training again this week - hasn't been a regular event for the last three years! And engaging with a live room full of people - responding to their personal development needs as well as the needs of management - well, it's a thrill! What strikes me, again and again, is … Continue reading What skills do we need for the future?

Transduction – leading transformation – Issue #62

So, it looks like I’m switching to fortnightly 🙂 Last week I flew in to London Luton airport, late (the stewardess said, to another passenger ‘oh, 90 minutes is nothing these days’), and missed my ‘wizz bus’ and they didn’t sell tickets on the National Express bus but at the machines inside, and two out … Continue reading Transduction – leading transformation – Issue #62

“It’s a merger, not a takeover”

How many times have you heard this? What was it that showed you that this was absolutely, definitely, not true?

Who are you at work?

I would like to declare today Bring Yourself to Work Day. It’s actually not a significant holiday or holy day or anything anywhere in the world that I can find! It is the beginning of the Orthodox Church Year, and around the ‘start of term’ in many places, so it feels appropriate 🙂 What do I … Continue reading Who are you at work?

Stocktake: Transduction – leading transformation – Issue #61

I’m definitely in a lull with writing posts. What would you do next, if you were me? For the last two or three years, I’ve been very disciplined about writing one or two intentional LinkedIn posts every week (Monday and/or Wednesday), and then pulling them together with a bunch of the things I’ve shared on … Continue reading Stocktake: Transduction – leading transformation – Issue #61

What are the blogs or social media which you learned the most from, early on?

A recent comment from Mike Parker had me thinking about #systemsthinking Twitter, in the early days — a great little community of folks sharing, learning, and debating together. Then there was Gene Bellinger’s original Systems Thinking group here on LinkedIn (which I merged my group into) — which still continues in new form at https://lnkd.in/dMB3xvRz, and is slightly being … Continue reading What are the blogs or social media which you learned the most from, early on?

What’s your favourite warm-up exercise?

Join the discussion at https://www.linkedin.com/posts/antlerboy_team-poker-activity-6967374374404304896-GN9a Warm-up exercises? Often a huuuge waste of time, punishing the introverts and creating nothing relevant to the event you’re doing… As face-to-face training and workshops are (partly, slowly) coming back, here’s a very simple and effective way to do it, which touches on team-building, teamwork, building cooperation, problem solving , #leadership, … Continue reading What’s your favourite warm-up exercise?
