The Sound of Silence

I feel pretty exhausted by all the noise and clamour of recent events surrounding our exit from the EU. The unedifying behaviour of our political leaders in the run up to the vote, that has continued into the subsequent leadership contests, and all of the fallout whipped up in the tornado-like frenzy of the media.A week after the decision to exit I was in my usual early Friday evening…See More

Do we measure what matters?

I have found myself thinking a lot recently about how I, and others measure achievement, and what feels like a disproportionate amount of value we place on some familiar and habitual ways of measuring success.  I am a reluctant participant in my own inquiry because I don’t want to feel so constrained by this and yet currently I most certainly am!There are a number of reasons why it feels…See More

A Further Inquiry into Hope

 “Hope has two beautiful daughters – their names are anger and courage; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are.”This quotation attributed to St Augustine maybe centuries old, but it feels very relevant today given recent events in Paris, in Tunisia, over Egypt, in Syria and beyond. A BBC reporter broke down last week as he described the…See More

Leave while you are still in love

How do you know when it is time to leave your organisation; especially if you have been there many years, learned loads, enjoyed and suffered the ups and downs in equal measure, and still love your colleagues dearly? It maybe a logic-driven decision from your head with a clear career trajectory in mind; or perhaps a deeply felt, emotional pull of your heart’s calling, a search for…See More

Shame on you

Recently, as part of the Masters I am doing in Leading and Facilitating Transformative Change, I was part of a group conversation on the topic of shame, both individual and organisational. This has got to be one of the toughest emotions to talk about, even with people we deeply trust; in most organisations it is a subject to be avoided at all costs! However, if you can bear the vulnerability it takes…See More

The Value of a Good Map

I am sitting with my coaching client and laid out in front of us on a piece of A4 blank paper we have a map; not a conventional map of course but in fact a constellation of the key elements in the issue he is struggling to unpack.We are using arrow shaped post-it notes to identify the elements – in this case people including himself – and he has placed them using two key criteria; direction…See More

Paul Hunter commented on Clare Southall's blog post Mind Your Language
"It's as if corporate vernacular is a second language.  One that could have it's own dictionary except that the dictionary doesn't apply universally; it only applies to the company you work…"

Mind Your Language

I have been thinking a lot about language recently; how we use it all the time but maybe don’t always pay enough attention to what we are saying and how we are saying it.When David Whyte, the poet was asked by a CEO in the US some years ago to come and work in his organisation - and David was struggling to understand why - it was because, the CEO said, the language they were using (in the…See More
