Thinking Fast & Slow

“The book offers excellent research-based insights into how we make decisions, the need to consider what our unconscious biases might be and how they might impact the things we do every day.”


The Rise and Fall of Strategic Planning

“The article offers a helpful distinction between strategic planning and strategic thinking, and warns of the danger of strategic planning being a programmatic exercise that fails to truly challenge the status quo.”


Why Should anyone be Led by You?

“The article challenges perceptions about what it takes to succeed as a leader, and poses a great question that any leader should consider all the time.”
