  • Those perfect teams

    Today I met with an old friend of mine, who is puzzling over the formation of a team and why he wasn’t quite getting the results that he was looking for; he and his organisation have employed several models and techniques around change and team building as well as role identification etc. One model that had been used to underpin some of the team formation was Bruce Tuckman’s 1965 model Forming, Norming, Storming & Performing for team development.

  • Businesses don't.......

    I was out and about in London today and I saw a brilliant sign in a Costa coffee shop, 'businesses don't make coffee, people do'. That message while simple is so effective, not only the product that you see in the shop, but those that grow it thousands of miles away and all those in between that ship it and roast it, the list would go on. The wall in the shop demonstrated how Costa sees its people, pictures of the 'Barista of the year', the farmers and children in a nursery who benefit from the Costa foundation.

  • The nights are drawing out

    And we move towards the start of the next year, I am looking towards Spring and how that will bring so much more new growth and longer days. The winter will be long behind us and we will be benefitting from the blossom and some warmer weather. I'm also looking at how I can improve myself over the next twelve months and thinking about how I can best impact my year to bring the maximum prosperity and benefit to my friends and clients alike. The start of the new year brings much positivity for most but not for all. For some it's simply another year to worry about, getting more clients, improving profitability and making sure we can get by.

  • The post change season

    Christmas has gone for another year (only 350ish shopping days to go!), the New Year has been and gone and we have all but discarded our resolutions (well some may have). The festive season as my previous blog goes into is a time of high octane, high emotion and for most a happy time with family. Once that feeling wanes, the nights still feel far too long, the weather is chilly and it's back to the grindstone for some more good old hard work. Often this return to work in the new year brings with it a feeling of lethargy and difficulty in getting going

  • The vagaries of people under pressure!

    I was returning from a trip to Barcelona recently and all was going very well, check in was good, arrival at the gate fine, boarding was very quick and we pushed back from the stand early! Flight time was only 1:40 to London Heathrow which was looking like a real result read more.....
