About This Website

In 2009, I started my first blog on a platform called Posterous, going through at least seven iterations and designs as platforms, trends and my own roles and interests changed. The website you’re visiting now is the outcome of 15 years of writing and interacting with readers who’ve found me online, as well as all of the students who’ve attended my workshops in Australia, Asia, Europe and the United States.

At the same time, with a career of almost 40 years (including 20 years facilitating training workshops), I’ve also gathered a lot of stuff that makes no sense keeping inside a filing cabinet, real or digital.

So, I’m going through my archives and putting it out there for my students to use and access as background. If anyone else finds it useful, even better. The content includes the most popular articles from my blogging days, as well as the additional materials I share with students in my training workshops here in Australia and abroad.

Four Areas of Content

The information is organised into the four areas reflecting my career, experience and interest. In order:

  • Analyse information to extract useful insights
  • Brainstorm solutions to solve problems
  • Communicate those ideas to other people
  • Lead others to success, often by motivating, negotiating and collaborating with others

Currently there is roughly 300 articles organised here with more planned. Each area has sub-categories to filter materials for easier searching, including plenty of search tags. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, or want more information.

In short, this website supports my philsophy, both in training and in life:

Learn what you don’t know.

Guest Posts

Every now and then I get requests from writers asking to contribute Guest Posts. The answer is Yes, but

My first priority is to get this website running smoothly in the back-office. Once I do, I’ll post here my expectations, but a few words now on what I won’t accept.

  • No branded content of any type
  • Content that doesn’t fit into the four areas
  • Content that isn’t immediately relevant and applicable
  • Content from people who’ve never applied the content in a work situation 
  • People with a legitimate profile, preferably on LInkedIn

Again, I’ll return later with more details. Of course, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I like would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where I, my colleagues and students live and work.

For myself based in Sydney, I recognise the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. I honour their elders past, present and emerging.

I would also like to extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

To take nothing away the importance of the Acknowledgement, I would like to add something more.

No matter where you were born on this planet, including the languages, traditions and customs that you hold important regardless of where you live now, I would like to also welcome, recognise and respect your heritage, regardless of how you define it or you define yourself.
