What We Think

Do we need to Digitox?

Our Leading Edge Point of View on Change has a number of components, which came to mind as I read the book ‘Digitox: How to Find a Healthy Balance for Your Family’s Digital Diet’ (Proud to say it’s written by one of our own ‘Team Green’ colleagues, Mark Ellis!). As Eddie Obeng’s New World Management

Doctor Who #13 and Transition Theory… no, not an episode title

So Doctor Who is female.  And the twittersphere is having a meltdown.  For every tweet hailing the break through in the glass ceiling that is Jodie Whittaker’s appointment as the 13th TimeLord, there’s an equally vocal tweet from traditionalist ‘Whovians’ determined to vent their anger in ‘Why oh Why BBC…?’ style And the rest of

Does goal setting actually restrict us? 

It’s long been the perceived wisdom that whether in business, sport or in life we should set ‘SMART’ goals for ourselves. In doing so, creating focus and clarity…. but…. is it restrictive to our creativity and the sense of possibility? Sometimes I wonder if what we should actually do is set an intent, a dream

Upside Down Leadership and Timpson’s Success

A recent series of solo car journeys has seen me turn to podcasts for entertainment and the opportunity to catch up on the back catalogue of Desert Island Discs.  Businessman John Timpson kept me company on the journey to Leeds this weekend and resonated on lots of levels – particularly because I’ve regularly experienced great

Excited by your work….the exception or the norm?

My daughter rang me yesterday bubbling over with excitement after an amazing interview for her first “proper” job… and today she was even more excited when they offered her the job.  It suddenly made me think about how infectious excitement is and equally how fragile it can be. How much of the time are you

To be or not to be?  The authenticity debate…

Catching up on the Sunday papers from a couple of weeks ago, my attention was caught by an article surfacing the debate on the value of authenticity.
