Magic Monday

I am sorry that my postings have become quite irregular of late, let me explain.

In 2001 I started this adventure in Authentic Business and leadership with a vision that one day I would bring authenticity to the top level of a globally significant corporation.  I feel incredibly fortunate and privileged to be able to say that I am now doing that and have been since about May.

Not only has this work taken up a great deal of my time, especially on Mondays somehow, but it has also made writing my blog seem less relevant, somehow.

There have been a couple of side effects to these things:

Firstly, achieving a vision can be a risky thing for any business, it can lead to a loss of direction.  To avoid this I have had to work on a new vision.  My new vision is to be able to work as a non-exec director in a globally significant business with a specific remit around culture and leadership.  I don’t even know if such roles exist yet, but the nature of a vision is that we don’t know how to achieve it, if we knew how to achieve it, it would be an objective.

Secondly, writing my blog every week has absorbed all of my creative needs and meant that I didn’t feel any need to wrote another book.  Since my pause in blogging, I have started to think about another book.  Equally, I don’t know how (or if) I will achieve it, but this one will be about our societies habit of promoting, electing and selecting narcissists as leaders and exploring the benefits of choosing more humble and inclusive people to lead us.

I will continue to keep the blog open, but it will be less regular in future.

  1. Entirely understandable Neil; do the days get shorter as we age?
    Best wishes for the new ventures
    (are you allowed to say which globally significant corp has been enlightened enough to take you on?)


  2. I echo Jonathan’s message of understanding and best wishes, Neil.
    I was half expecting / hoping this Monday’s blog might be prompted by Russell Brand’s article following the GQ Awards

    It certainly fits your theme of “our societies habit of promoting, electing and selecting narcissists as leaders and exploring the benefits of choosing more humble and inclusive people to lead us”.

    Thanks for your Monday morning magic this far and I look forward to seeing where your purpose takes you next.

    I hope you will still find a way to balance between your needs and the gift of the Monday blog.
    I can only express how much I value the blogs. Sometimes I find them hard to grasp entirelly as English is not my mother tongue. So they even serve as expanding tool to my language skills.
