If your next career goal is to become a people manager, then there’s one crucial skill you need to develop: adaptability.  The best manager will shift and flex in response to the changing environment around them and, crucially, the different motivations of the individuals they lead. In short, they are a chameleon who can adapt to suit the situation at hand. For instance, they’ll look...

  Across the world, offices are reopening after the pandemic forced many of us to work from home for long periods of time. The shift to a hybrid model, where employees split their time working from home and the office, is seen as the future for many of us.

  “Climate change is the defining crisis of our time and it is happening even more quickly than we feared.” That stark quote from the United Nations could not be clearer. We are in the midst of a catastrophe, and how we react to it will define not only our future, but the future of generations to come. But despite this, António Guterres, Secretary General of the UN commented in...

  Research shows low employment rate for Autistic people in US, UK and Australia. Meanwhile, some employers focus on hiring Autistic people as opposed to a fully neurodiverse workforce. Adapting interview techniques and job descriptions can make process more inclusive for neurodiverse applicants. The lack of diversity and inclusion in the tech industry is a widely acknowledged...

  Conducting job interviews remotely is set to become commonplace as we enter the next era of work. But how can you replicate that ‘feeling’ candidates get for your organisation when they interview with you in-person, if they are just staring into a screen, devoid of the sensory overload they would experience during a face-to-face interview? How can a potential employee truly get an...

    Truly great business leaders are few and far between. There are many who have mastered a particular style of command, and often this has brought them a degree of success, however in order to elevate yourself to the next level in the modern world of business you need to be flexible; willing and able to rotate through a number of varying leadership styles. Goleman’s ‘Six...

  It’s been a few weeks, and in some countries, months, since huge swaths of managers and leaders have seen their team members in person. For the vast majority, this complete lack of face-to-face interaction was simply unheard-of pre-crisis, but now, communicating with our teams solely through digital technology, seeing their faces on a screen every day, is starting to feel a little...

  Whether it’s just for the evening, the weekend or you’re taking a well-deserved break on holiday, it can be hard to stop the never-ending to-do list whizzing through your mind, especially when there are more things to do at work than there are people to do them. If you find it hard to relax and let go of work when you leave the office, you’re not on your own. We’re ever more...

  Think, for a moment, about all the thoughts that play in your head as you move through your day-to-day life. Narratives like “I’m not a numbers person”, “I’m not good with technology”, “I don’t cope well with change”. These are thoughts that are subconsciously stuck on replay in our minds, whose voices never seems to quieten, gradually chipping away at our sense of self-belief. ...

  Research points to specific strengths and skills associated with neurominorities, like ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism and more. Assumptions on neurodiversity often dismiss people’s experience and skills.

  Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, or ED&I, is an increasingly vital consideration for any organisation. And when strategies are successfully implemented, these contribute to continued, and sometimes, transformational growth and success.
