VENUE FOR OWNER MANAGERS' WORKSHOP

No, this is not a happy holiday snap. A wee yacht like this parked off Hamilton Island has been the venue for my latest Professional Workshop for Leading Owner Managers. The lapping of the water against the boat is very conducive to reflection. Back to vegemite sandwiches soon!

PODCAST WITH PETER CEBON

I have posted a new Podcast featuring Peter Cebon, Associate Professor at the University of Melbourne, who runs the Innovation Practices Program in the Masters of Engineering. He talks about the challenge facing many professionals and skilled workers, namely, the rapid automation of their roles and the need for them to be more adaptive and innovative. My recent article posted in the publications section and called "The Curious Leader" also explores aspects of the innovation challenge and my involvement in the Innovation Program run by Peter.

Curiouser and curiouser. Apparently curiosity "killed the cat". But the great leadership scholar Shaun Micallef warns about the alternative which is "curiosity cul-de-sac". My own next curious L&S work adventure takes meto the land of the crocodile in Darwin, and then to the land of the exotic kiwi in New Zealand.
