    Redbean has two approaches to change in organisations. Fast change which is focussed on working climate, teams, projects, creativity and innovation and Slow change which focusses on the whole organisation or large change programs (e.g. new systems, transformation, mergers). Deciding on Fast versus Slow change is a strategy question yet both of them require opening the can of worms called culture . How do we do that without it getting messy? My first steps to helping an organisation to improve/define/change its culture is to understand that which already exists. Culture and climate, its more…

    I escaped the anti-intellectual confines of Brisbane, capital of Queensland, many years ago but often venture back to see what’s happening. And there is stuff happening! Monocle magazine in the UK - the Hipster’s Times - recently included Brisbane in their top twenty of the world’s most liveable cities. In an Australian State with a monocular view of the world this comes as a bit of a surprise. The current Premier of Queensland has stated many times he is in the business of coal mining. This affection for the world’s dumbest industry along with the destruction of…

  • Risk? What risk?

    15 May 2014 | 6:37 pm
    Here is another compelling argument that being an entrepreneur is a risky business! Duh! We live in the age of the startup. It’s never been easier to build a product and start a company. And, thanks to the boom in angel investing and crowdfunding, it’s never been easier for startups to raise money… But there’s a catch: starting a company may be easier, but making it a success isn’t. And another reason why starting Lean can avoid some pain.

    After four years I have moved on from IBM where I was a Managing Consultant with the Strategy and Transformation group in Australia. I worked with some great clients and people around the planet. The writing was on the wall though when recently they changed the title of our global group to Strategy and Analysis. Yep IBM was going back to its roots, using its superiority in computational power to corner the market in big data. The emphasis on ‘transformation’ and the consulting services that went with that would reduce. And with the timing right I chose to go. But there was a deeper…

I’ve suggested that if the assessments from various modes of learning such as F2F, eLearning, mLearning and informal are thoroughly analyzed, the analysis will pave way for customized learning that will try to bring the best out of the learner as content will be offered to the learner in the way most preferred by him / her.

    How to Recruit Using Facebook An ongoing concern of employers – whether small, one-man businesses, or large corporations with dedicated human resource departments – is how to effectively recruit competent human capital. Often, a widely available tool these employers overlook is Facebook. Indeed, social media in general is a powerful recruitment tool that most employers do not know how to fully utilize. Employers with more awareness of the benefits of social media invest some energy into understanding how to recruit using Facebook. The best part of this process is the fact that…

    Let’s say you run a call center or are responsible for recruiting for a call center. What is the biggest hurdle to your company’s success? From our experience, plainly, it is recruiting and retaining quality call center agents. Many times, even if you can get a quality call center agent in the door, it is tough to keep them. This leads to the dreaded recruiting treadmill – recruit like crazy to fill a training class, graduate the training class to the floor, lose 15% in the first month on top of your 70-100% annual attrition, scramble to repeat the process. So, what can you…

    Using Twitter to Recruit Like other social media sites, Twitter has become an excellent candidate-finder for the modern recruiter. However, Twitter is useful to recruiters not because it can do the same things that sites like Facebook and LinkedIn can, but because it takes one of those things and focuses on it to the exclusion of the rest. Recruiters can use Twitter to send out messages to be read by a worldwide audience, something that is particularly useful to smaller businesses that would otherwise be unable to exert such reach.

    Photo courtesy of iStock Photo I’ll admit that I had a bad habit for a while. The habit was trying to move forward in my personal and professional life with the predominant perspective being my past. I would focus on what hadn’t worked as well as my failures with a sincere desire to not make the same mistake again. But do you know what happened? I repeated them just in different ways. Instead of looking forward and leveraging my successes, I was blinded by the past and this inhibited my enjoyment and appreciation for what I’d accomplished. Doing this hindered my ability to…

Sean asks, “Hugh, how do you develop your personal brand in general? With management, customers, peers or customers?” Sean, that’s a really good question and I think the best way to position this idea is by sharing with you what my old boss, Tom Peters, used to say. He said, “be distinct or be extinct.” Tom believed that if there is nothing very distinctive about your work, in the eyes of the people who are important to you, you’d be extinct. How…

    Start My Consulting Business - Ditch your day job. Make things happen. Change your life. There’s a question you need to answer when you start consulting (or any business) that’s crucial to your success. Once you know the question, it’ll seem ridiculously obvious. But still, few ask it, and fewer still know how to answer it. Before I show you what I mean, here’s an example of what you might be doing right now as you start consulting. Keep in mind that starting a consulting business is, essentially, learning a new skill: the skill of building a successful business.
