  • What is “Unworking?”
  • You’re born, you suffer, you die. Isn’t that how the saying goes?

  • Work Shouldn’t Feel Like A Job!
  • I read an inspirational Instagram post the other day by the wonderful Brian Falchuk which said “Life Shouldn’t Feel Like a Job”. I agree completely. And sometimes it does, doesn’t it, espcially when you’re trying to juggle family, work, personal interests, being healthy, managing your finances, maybe getting to see your friends at some point, staying on top of your Instagram posts…!

  • Don’t resolve…evolve!
  • I used to do my New Year’s Resolutions with great gusto. I recall a list of more than 50 resolutions when I was a teenager covering everything from how I would take more care with various aspects of my appearance to how I would stop myself putting my foot in it to how I would be more like other people and less of a weirdo.

Episode 63: The Future of Leadership Development, with Prof Peter Hawkins
Episode 63: The Future of Leadership Development, with Prof Peter Hawkins19/02/2018

It's all very exciting at the moment with our trip just 4 weeks away. But my fascination with leadership and leadership development hasn't gone away! This week I'm off to Switzerland to work with a team there on their leadership and I will continue to do this kind of work even when we're on the road. There's a need for leadership in our world greater than maybe at any time in the past, and a significant leadership vacuum. But how do we help people become better leaders? Is what we are doing today working? Not according to today's guest, Professor Peter Hawkins. Part-time Executive Professor of Leadership at Henley Business School, where he is researching next generation leadership and leadership development, Visiting Professor at the Universities of Bath and Oxford Brookes and founder and Emeritus Chairman of Bath Consultancy Group and Renewal Associates, he is also the author of numerous books and a groundbreaking report called Tomorrow’s Leadership and the Necessary Revolution in Today’s Leadership Development. If you're in HR this report and today's interview should be required research! But even if you're not there's plenty here about the future world we are going to be living in and how we rethink assumptions and habits of the past. Please stay in touch on Instagram, twitter, facebook and by email ( with your thoughts and ideas on this subject or anything else related to leadership and integrating your work and your life!
