Share This: In his public persona Donald Trump isn’t known for his supreme self-control or consistency. These are two traits that are essential for leaders to excel. The ‘Traits’ theory of leadership posits that good leaders demonstrate particular traits. This is an observational theory, essentially based on the study of good leaders and the typical traits that […]

Share This: The old saying, “Jack of all trades, master of none” has a bit of a ring to it. We generally use this as a disparaging remark about a colleague or about ourselves in a self-effacing way.  Sometimes being able to do a little bit of everything is positive in a manager, but ultimately […]

Share This: Leaders need to be good at listening.  Sounds intuitive enough right? but it’s amazing how many can’t actually do it. There’s an old adage which refers to the balance between our ears and mouth. “We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.” Epictetus […]

Procrastination is a nasty killer virus. It kills projects, destroys businesses and ends careers. The good news however, is that it’s curable. You know the score, right? We are all theoretically cash ‘rich’ and time poor. Relatively speaking of course, compared to our parents, we have more buying power in terms of ‘luxuries’ and we […]

Share This: Pete Wilson gives some practical advice on how & when to use this ‘legendary’ group development model. There are two sides to running a business the ‘run’ side (or business as usual) and the ‘change’ side. The trick that many organisations have to pull off is not letting one bleed into the other. It’s […]

Share This: Business change is notoriously difficult, it’s oft said that it’s like ‘herding cats’. The trouble is that we don’t really know how to frame our thinking around change. Typically we start out with a problem, something isn’t quite working right, or some outside influence leads to a degree of dissatisfaction at the current […]

Share This: Always, always be yourself… Some of the worst relationships I’ve had in the world of work, and indeed outside of work, have been with people who lack consistency. For example there is nothing worse than sitting down with your line manager and agreeing a framework for decision making which empowers you and liberates […]
