The Future of Work  - 
 
Charlie Mayfield of John Lewis making the case for Employee Ownership.

EO is a form of business I am very interested in. In my view it is all about distributing leadership - into the hands of the people on the front line. Creating responsibility and accountability throughout the business.

The text of his talk is here.
Organised by the Employee Ownership Association and hosted by the ICAEW, this annual commemoration of the life of the founder of the EOA, Robert Oakeshott, has become a key highlight in the calendar, this year attracting over 200 delegates including members of the Employee Ownership Association and business owners keen to learn more.

Welcome aboard +Pete Burden - good to see you in here.

Thanks for sharing this article. Many would agree that new ways of working are required in the hyper-connected world where so many share their opinions using Social Media platforms.

On the upside: the opportunity to be heard, to help shape where organisations are headed (and why)
On the downside: tendency to mob rule if not managed properly, shouting can overwhelm evidence-based thinking, etc.

I wish this Organisation well and hope that they will make a positive difference.

Hi, like Richard Martin I hope I can tiptoe quietly in with a blog post to introduce myself.

Beyond that, and by way of background, I know +Austen Hunter from Brighton, have met Rob, and I know one or two more of you from my time at NixonMcInnes.

A few years ago I started a consultancy called Conscious Business People - which was really about two things: leading more mindfully, and getting more purposeful results.

I’d define Conscious Business generally as being about those things, and doing business differently.

In fact, alternative ways of doing business has been a lifelong interest for me, as have alternative ways of doing just about anything. So I am really interested in Ethos and how it is organising itself differently to deal with complex business problems.

I am planning to be at the First Wednesday event - so hope to meet some more of you there?

Best
Pete
Today, a friend sent me an article by Gary Hamel. It is a post about the failure of change management. In essence Professor Hamel and his colleague Michele Zanini suggest that the ‘change programme’ has outlived its usefulness, and instead we should be building ‘change platforms’.Change programmes, and change management in general, don’t work because, says Professor Hamel, they tend to start with some assumptions: change starts from the top – cha...

Don't know about tiptoeing +Pete Burden, but you are very welcome here and good to meet you on Weds, albeit briefly. Reading your blog I hope we get a chance to meet more often and longer as I too believe in creating the right conditions for change rather than top down pushing. Quite a step change from what I once was.

If you want something kid friendly this is great. Plenty of space, climbing frame in garden, two kids menus. Fast, friendly and not overpriced.
