What place(s) inspired YOU?

While reflecting on our 10 years of writing recently, we mentioned the number of locations we had been in to write our three books. To some degree the different locations came down to necessity as we lived in different countries while writing our first two books, but that’s certainly not the whole story. No, we also decided that we now and then needed to see and experience something different in order to continuously get a new...

Make leadership journaling part of your strategy

Don’t fall into the busy trap. There is great value in pausing to reflect, as it provides an opportunity to recognise what’s going on, evaluate results and consider options going forward.

As thoughts are captured in a visual way (or auditory, if you prefer to record your thoughts) they...
