Welcome!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you find some of the content here useful.

I started this blog as I’m fascinated by management and the development of people, and helping people to achieve their full potential. To me, there’s nothing like seeing people build their knowledge, realise their hard and soft-skill goals, and progress in their careers.

But why?

I’ve worked at numerous places in my career where I felt like the people weren’t a focus at all. The leadership team only cared about the money being made, and the people that worked there were just commodities that could be replaced if needed. There was no nurturing of talent whatsoever.

What a rubbish way to look after the people that dedicate so much of their waking lives to you!

I started this blog as a way to share some of my opinions, largely based on the experiences I’ve had over the years. My posts are designed to give food-for-thought – not provide all the answers. And they are just that – opinions.

There’s no “right way” or “wrong way” with people management. But I’m hoping that some of what I write about resonates with you, your own experiences, or help you to think about approaching things differently.

I also read a lot of books about people management, business, culture, productivity and human behaviour. Much of the content I write here will review the books I’ve read, and recommend whether they might be a good read for you.

I hope you enjoy reading through some of my musings, and feel free to get in touch with me if you want to chat through anything further.
