02 Nov: Identity Part 2: What are we stepping into?

The global pandemic has brought home to us just how complex life really is. The future always was unchartered – but we chose to seek out predictions and forecasts. Now we’ve got to know uncertainty for ourselves. And we’ve learnt that our adaptability helps us live within it and lead others through it.
My invitation to you here is to support yourself, and those you lead, with the shift in identity that uncertainty demands of us. And my challenge to you is to accept that this lifelong quest lies at the heart of our role as leaders.

01 Aug: Are we ready for what lies ahead?

Where are we in the lifecycle of this pandemic? Is this the end of the beginning, or the beginning of the end? Or half time? And – as our days shorten and shadows lengthen – are we ready for whatever lies ahead?
In this article I want to celebrate the phenomenal flexibility we’ve all mustered over many months. Let’s not take it for granted. Let’s acknowledge it so that we can own this vital capability and continue to adapt in the months ahead.

19 Jul: What does it mean to be a Thinking Environment and Why does it Matter?

What if 2020 is the year we embrace change, in a way unlike we have ever done in the past? What if we would, more intentionally, generate the best thinking in others and ourselves, for the good of all? What if – with creativity, courage, and commitment – we chose to become a thinking environment for others?

01 Jun: Meeting crisis with creativity

We’re living through a paradox. A time of unimaginable disruption is being met with the most inspiring examples of human creativity, collaboration and compassion. We face a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to tap into the creativity that is innate in all of us, and to express it in our own, unique way. Here I celebrate human creativity, and share my thoughts on how we can release and harness it, in ourselves and others.

01 May: Meeting chaos with calm

Recently I shared what I’ve learned while coaching leaders working on their impulse control. One month later, this emotional intelligence skill is critical for all of us. And it is being put to the test in many different ways and to extreme levels. I’ve been thinking about how we are responding to the very different challenges each of us are facing right now, and how we can meet the chaos with choice and calm.
