Sustainable Development Goals – what can Gen Y & Z do?

17 Goals were ratified by 193 countries last December. 17 Goals that have the ability to change our world. 17 Goals that will affect us all. Globally.

What does Brexit tell us about Politics, Systemic Complexity and Leadership?

  The days of national economies are basically gone. It’s debatable how controllable they ever were. We live in a world of interconnected financial systems, global trade and transnational corporations. Of course, no politician will readily admit that they have almost no control over the economy. And I’m talking about the national politicians of most […]

More than a mountain to climb

In April I will be climbing Mount Kenya. It is almost 5,000m high (as high as Base Camp Everest), and will take me 5 days to summit the mountain and get back down. I’ll walk in temperatures ranging from 30c to -20c and, if I’m unlucky, potentially face the perils of mountain sickness. I will […]

It comes from acquiring more knowledge and skills and from experiential learning, finding the leader within, a focus on purpose/strategy and being able to see the systems we work in through the eyes of varied stakeholders. I believe there is massive business and societal benefit from a commitment to lifelong learning and development and working in partnership on complex challenges at the systemic and the organisational level.”[/column_grid_8][/column_wrapper]

Sustainable Development Goals: time to bring in the Millennials

We are inheriting an economic value system where we value more a dead fish over a live one, a dead tree over a forest, sick people over healthy ones, war and threats of war over peace. An economic value system where we privatise profits and socialise losses, and a disconnected system that works on the […]

It is 50 years to the day, that Nelson Mandela was convicted in the Rivonia Trial and sentenced to life imprisonment. Reflecting on how, 27 years later, he emerged […]
