Introverts – We walk amongst you

It is the shy kids who are easy to forget. They can be ushered into the corner by the teacher/director or the other actors/students and overlooked because they generally won't complain. They will accept the status quo because they won't want to rock the boat. Their creative skills enable them to show acceptance and contrition when faced with missing out on opportunities.

Raison d'être

There’s that theme again…

One of the greatest things that our current interconnectivity provides us with, is an exposure to more culture, more groups, more businesses, more industries and an opening of the realisation of possibilities that we might be more alike than our current world view permits

Culture is Feeling

Organisations fool themselves into believing that they want to be transformative, innovative and adaptive. They also fool themselves into believing that by changing the top-down message, the mandate from the executive, that innovation will flow like the ancient Saharan rivers of gold. Unfortunately, corporate culture is focused on operational excellence and efficiency. This is the very antithesis of the collective hearts, minds and habits of the organisation's people and their mutual perception of 'this is how we do things'. Top-down mandates can only ever command compliance, they can never influence confidence, belief, enthusiasm or creativity.
