Friday Reflections - Learning at Work Week

This week marks Learning at work week and I guess as a Learning and Development Company it is perhaps natural for us jump on this topic, however, I don’t actually believe Learning at Work Week is designed with Companies like us, who work in L&D, in mind.  As you’d expect are we already total advocates…

Friday Reflection – The Magic of Bluebells

I recently when for a lovely dog work in our local woods and was delighted to be greeted with an incredible blue carpet of bluebells, it smelt and felt like spring. I made a throwaway comment to my wife about how a carpet like this takes decades, if not centuries to establish because bluebells spread…

Friday Reflection – A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood

Having just finished our latest box set binge and wanting a gap before starting another series I found myself flicking through films to watch and stumbled across the 2019 film A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD staring Tom Hanks and I am pleased I did. The film is based on the true story of a…

Friday Reflection – Innovation Day

Apparently, last Friday was National Innovation Day – who knew? It was perhaps a coincidence then that this week I was talking to a client about how they can turn the well-established processes and culture in their Business around. About how they can take on something that seems so set in its ways and inject…

Friday Reflection – Bad Managers

One of my favourite work sayings is “Bad managers trump your culture every time” – if you work for a terrible boss in a wonderful company then your experience is likely to be bad – equally you can work for an inspirational boss in an average Company and have a great experience. When talking to…
