I know it’s a bit early for end of year predictions, however, someone asked me what I thought so I figured I’d better not keep it a secret between just him and me.

Having just completed a phone call I am feeling helpless and a bit angry. Why because the call was from a friend and colleague whose company just had a ransomware attack. It was successful and they are faced with either paying the ransom, or facing a total disruption of their business model and taking a major hit to their corporate reputation as they slowly work their way out of the mess.
Why Helpless? Because the damage is done. If they had taken our courses on managing cyber… Continue

That change is the only constant has been repeated ad infinitum and implanted into the minds of everyone in management from the boardrooms to the cafeteria over the years. Almost everyone seems to be aware of this, at least in theory. Unfortunately, when it comes to adapting and implementing change; most managers and other levels of staff seldom put this idiom into practice the way it should be. Most organizations, even very well-known ones, and managers, fall short for lack of… Continue

Stats don’t lie. The research of Professor Paul Nutt of Ohio State University into nearly 400 strategic decisions by major corporations showed that a mere 50% of decisions were successful. I think much of it can be explained because the leadership were implementing in the dark.
Organisations develop their own way of doing things. It’s cultural, a form of organisational creed.… Continue

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is considered the world's most popular personality test. The main reason for its popularity is the empathetic and comprehensive nature it takes. Many organizations, as well as important social areas such as family, marriage, and career counseling continue to deploy it for the in-depth perspective it offers the assessor in understanding the assessee.
Generally, when we assess others; we fail to take the unique situation that led them to taking a… Continue

It is not an exaggeration to say that those in managements have their hands full during almost any working day. Dashing to finish tasks makes it chaotic for managers and other employees to stay focused on their core work. As a result, their work gets delayed or its impact gets diluted. They are forced into a situation where work keeps piling up and their daily routine gets chaotic. This becomes more pronounced in the backdrop of a changing work environment.
The result of being… Continue

We all know that change is the only constant in business. Organizations know it, too. Yet, many are hesitant to bring about and embrace change until they are compelled to. This is a fundamental mistake from managements, because organizations that are resistant to change are not likely to flourish in the long run.
Many organizations tend to equate change with the introduction of new, untried products and services. This may be great for the business, but organizational change goes… Continue

Growth is a need for everyone. We all have the urge to grow, because we have our unique abilities. We all have enormous potential. Some of it may be obvious, and others may have to be dug up from the rubble, so to speak. Many of us are good at what we do, and are aware of it and give our best in any situation. Others may have the same ability, but could allow their doubt, insecurity or confusion to get the better of them. Both these kinds of people can improve. Everyone has the potential to… Continue
