I’ve been looking into the way we and especially leaders use Social Media. I’m building a toolkit to help people examine and reflect on how they interact on such platforms using Twitter as the test bed. In looking at how leaders use Social Media, I’ve written before about purposeful and meaningful behaviours. I think the … Continue reading

Honouring others

My whole family are big fans of of the TV series “Parks and Recreation“. So much so in fact that we’ve delayed watching the final episodes of the last ever season until this week. We just didn’t want it to end… I don’t want give details (spoilers) but the series ending is a beautifully crafted … Continue reading

Recruiting emotionally engaged people

Do you want emotionally engaged people at work? Not a lofty ideal or dream but part of a real and true people strategy? People who believe in the purpose and contribution of the organisation… People who are passionate, engaged and gladly giving of their discretionary effort… People who who see their work as more than … Continue reading

For the curious observer

The sign isn’t there today. However, the coffee, the tea, the sugar, the fresh milk, the cups and the urn of boiling water are. They all sit neatly on a trolley. It’s the same most Saturdays. But the sign isn’t there today. Slowly a group gathers near to the trolley. Coincidence really. Some stand, some … Continue reading

How are you social as a leader… on Social Media?

I’m really interested in how leaders on social media and especially Twitter “show up”. I’m particularly interested in how they are succeeding, or indeed failing, to show up as they want to. It’s that constant question of what is your leadership presence creating. In my last post, I shared my thinking on how you show up is … Continue reading

I’m really interested in how leaders on social media and especially Twitter “show up”. I’m particularly interested in how they are succeeding, or indeed failing, to show up as they want to. It’s that constant question of what is your leadership presence creating.

Question less? #WOL

I’m working out loud on some thinking here. It’s refining itself as I spend more time with it. I’m not sure what I will do with it. I know it needs others’ eyes now. If there’s something you can or want to add, please do so. I’d be interested to see what this provokes. Trust & … Continue reading
