Profits through purpose

May 7th 2019

Given the state of the world in which we find ourselves, it’s never been more important for companies to understand and moderate their impact on the world.

Using 'Structure' to Sell as a Change Agent

November 6th 2012

Some people say that selling is all about personal influence, some say it is about the art of persuasion, others say it is about 'the hard sell'.

I've worked with sales teams around the world and I can tell you if you're making it about these things you're making it harder than it should be. I think we place over-emphasis on old-school Cialdini-like approaches to influence and reciprocity, and spend too little time on leading edge insight into the neuroscience of human behaviour and decision-making.

Are People Dysfunctional Or Just Differently Functional?

February 20th 2011

I had a great conversation with Ken Wallace on the weekend, who's not only a cracking screenwriter but also has the pleasure of being my brother-in-law. He has recently had his second child, and was saying how he thinks in general people consider the way that they parent, 'normal'. Everyone else does it incorrectly or abnormally.

That is, you become your own benchmark for what is 'normal'. Everything else is a bit wacky or, often, 'dysfunctional'.
There is such wisdom in this – it is not just parenting, it's everything. We become our own benchmark for what 'normal' all the time. And then we get caught up in diagnosing problems with others; we talk about how people need to change and improve and fix things.
