I was reminded the other day about one of my favourite stories. We were talking about where you look as leaders for solutions. Sometimes it is important to look outside your own world for ideas, examples of how other people have solved your challenge or opportunity. It is also important to gain insights from looking at what you have too. Many times I have seen consultants brought in by senior leaders when the people on the front line have all the...

I loved Paloma Faith's speech at the BRITs 2015 the other evening. “Flaws are what make people human and I don’t claim to be perfect, and I make so many mistakes and I’m a bumbling wreck. But I’m just so grateful and I might never be up here again, which is why I want to dedicate this to all the underdogs and the grafters who work bloody hard.”It made we think about a story a share on my leadership programmes.

When I am teaching leaders how to plan, prepare and conduct a meeting that inspires action I start with drawing what a meeting should look like and what normally happens. Here is an example of one I drew the other day...How do you run your meetings....green or red? If you want to find how to make your meetings rock email me, you won't regret it. Just think how much more effective you will be, and how much more time you will have! Graham Wilson, L...

In today’s busy world I am guessing as a manager and a leader in your organisation you are really busy. I grew up with my father racing motorbikes and my uncle racing motors cars and my grandmother had a sweet/toy shop. What a great childhood! When I listened to my dad and my uncle talking about winning races and the reason why they lost races; a pattern emerged. The reason they lost races was because they were going too fast, normally spinning o...

Have you ever wondered why we have set up our education system based on Industrial Age thinking? Let me ask you a question, “What locations were the subjects at your school taught? Were they in different classrooms and taught by different specialist teachers?How are old world MBA’s taught…Module 1 Strategy, Module 2 Marketing, Module 3 Finance etc. with different professors running each session, probably saying that their subject is the most impo...

Get off your phone ... be present, look people in the eye, challenge people, ask questions, be in the moment. Get out from behind your desk ... be where the real action is happening. Get off the hamster wheel ... be comfortable with silence, thinking, reflecting, learning, and anticipating. They are all tasks you should be doing.

Congratulations to Sam Smith on winning his awards. British soul singer Sam Smith has won four Grammy Awards in the US, including the prestigious prizes for record and song of the year and best new artist. In his acceptance speech he talked about becoming successful as soon as he started being himself. This is true in every aspect of our lives, especially around leadership.Many years ago after I had just left the Army and joined a Global Organisa...

A few years ago I was driving down the M56 motorway near Chester. I was just passing the Chester Services, which I would say have been there for at least 15 years, when I noticed a new yellow and black sign that had appeared. It was a double take for me as it said, “Now Fully Open.” ...

How does a young child put their arm up in class to answer a question? How does an adult put their hand up? I wonder why this happens? The problem we face is that Managers are being trained for a world that doesn't exist anymore. It is probably a key factor why so many people are unhappy at work ...

I read in the papers a few years ago about a story of mum and a little girl. They were walking past a doctor's surgery and the little girl tripped and fell over gashing her forehead on the brick wall around the surgery. Being outside the surgery, the traumatised mum picked the poor girl up and ...
