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...

You can’t play a symphony on your own

Now published in China!

We are absolutely thrilled that ‘The Leader’s Guide to Impact’ has been translated Chinese and is now published in China! China is, alongside the US, the biggest publishing market in the world, but the number of foreign titles that are published is relatively small, only around 15.000+ per year. And we were interested to find out that even though online sales is dominant, there were still 4000 physical book shops...

How to retain your top talent

The ‘war for talent’ is not a new challenge for organisations all around the world, but the pandemic has made it worse. A recent study from McKinsey shows that around 40% of employees are ‘somewhat likely’ to change jobs in the next 3-6 months. And 2/3 of them would do so even if they didn’t have a new job offer.
