TWO RECENT ARTICLES

I have posted two recent articles in the Publications Section. One is titled "How Leaders Win Friends and Influence People"  and the other is "How Do Leaders Build The Trust Thing?". I hope you enjoy them and my apologies to those who have already received them. Note also that over this weekend Richmond broke the drought and won the AFL Premiership. Lots of reviews have wondered how the club came from 13th last year to 1st this year and they have concluded among other things that it was a renewed team and organizational focus on leadership, trust and connection.

LEADERSHIP HIERARCHY

Following the horrific terrorist attack mainly on children yesterday (23 May 2017) in Manchester I revisited my 2001 article ‘Pulse of the Planet: Leadership models in the global village’ to remind myself of a possible leadership hierarchy that might provide better outcomes than those we experience today.  Through leaders emotional and spiritual intelligence I believe it is possible for a new leadership paradigm to emerge but this will require a major shift.
