“A Networking Book” - your guide to becoming effective at one of the most important skills in business.
Wouldn’t it be great if we had the power of medieval wizards and make things happen just because of a magic potion or an incantation? Perhaps these druids of the past were onto something.

“When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.” Ernest Hemingway How can something as easy as listening be so complicated or difficult to do?

In my opinion the relationship with your boss can be ‘heaven or hell’. There’s no middle ground. In other words, it can be complete bliss or enough to drive you crazy. One day he’s fine the next day you wish he’d disappear (btw, I mean he or she). The relationship with your boss can make […]

Don’t you just love that magical moment when your head hits the pillow after a long day? That moment of bliss lasts for 2-3 seconds and I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. You’ve had a full day and now well, it’s time to sleep. We don’t question the need to sleep, we succumb […]

Anyone who’s managed other people for any length of time knows one thing for certain: Human beings are a complex species, and always not especially rational one. Most of us have seen our colleagues and subordinates make decisions and take actions that, on their surface, don’t seem to make a great deal of sense, such […]
It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there. Ours is an era of increasing competition, and only the strong survive. We’ve always got to be smarter, tougher, more nimble, quicker on our feet, and more ruthless than the next guy if we’re going to “get ahead” – and woe to us if we’re off our game, even […]

You smile to yourself: You’ve got this. Everything that’s required fits perfectly with your expertise. You’ll pull […]

Lately, I’ve collected 3 more heroes, people that have demonstrated to me courage and risks to show how bad they really wanted something. One person is a household name – at least he was in the past, the other you’ve probably seen a few pictures surfing and the third person is unknown. Some of us […]

Jeff Imelt, from GE once quoted Mentors as “People you trust to provide feedback and advice”. Mentors opens doors, are generous of spirit and time and best of all, a mentor’s time is free. It all started in 1998 when I met a fellow called Bob Henson – ‘a good ole boy from Birmingham, Alabama’ […]

I’ve had the chance to take up Scuba diving a long time ago and although I’m not a pro, I really enjoy the stillness, the coolness of being vulnerable and depending on oxygen as well as seeing a spectacle of fish and wildlife. Once in Thailand I was diving and noticed a 3 meter long […]
