Why executive coaching is not a luxury

Being a leader is a tough gig. You work long hours because you feel responsible for the livelihoods of those who depend upon your organisation. You might even make significant personal sacrifices that you hope you won’t regret later. You are aware of the long shadow you cast for your employees and this makes you act more self-consciously. You worry that you don’t have all of the answers or that something important is eluding you and may impact in the future. You may even feel like they made a mistake when they hired you and you are the only one who knows the grisly truth (it’s called Imposter Complex and be reassured that it is much more common than you think). All of this is happening internally, but there are external challenges too.

Leading through the death of deference

Posted on April 9, 2014

I have just read about the extraordinary events surrounding technology company Mozilla’s CEO Brendan Eich. It seems that around six years ago, Eich gave his support to an anti-gay marriage bill.

What Oscar Wilde can teach you about resilience

Oscar Wilde wrote a heart-rending fairytale called The Happy Prince. In it, a swallow befriends the statue of a town's late prince. From his plinth, the Happy Prince sees his people suffering, and asks the swallow to help them, using the decoration from his statue. The ruby is taken from his sword hilt, the sapphires are plucked from his eyes, and the gold leaf covering his body is torn off by the swallow, to alleviate the plight of the poor. The Mayor walks by, and looks up. Seeing the now ugly statue, he orders it to be pulled down, and thrown away.
