This is where I write, infrequently, about sense and nonsense in the world of managers and consultants, things which occupy my mind, some serious, others funny and frank. The contributions are intended to entertain and to inspire further thoughts about the challenges managers have to face today – and tomorrow.
About disasters, how intelligent people get stupid, about culture, chicken, eggs, systems and human beings and about levers for the levers.
About athletes, the iraqi information minister, play dead reflexes, gun rampages, grazing cows, and crucial cultural questions.
About mindfulness beyond the hype, absurd marketing, Marcel Proust in thirty seconds, steamrollers, the meditative power of fishing, and about the question why mindfulness is worthwhile.
About steely hardiness, exhausting and futile struggle, your odds from the bookies, the impossibility of unlearning how to drive, experiences as a surfer, and answers you don't like to hear.
About carrots, risky strategies to raise your profile, subcultures, Jean Tinguely, about cycles that only long-serving employees can see, Mindful Leadership, and rare hobbies.
About can openers, the stone age, group dynamics, congested areas of communication, mindful leadership, Indiana Jones, and true collaboration.
