Welcome to Cuttings

Now in its 25th year of unbroken publication. Cuttings is a regular (bi-monthly) newsletter that is a collection of ideas and writings on individual, management and organisation development that have interested me in the last few weeks. I share them with you to further promote discussion. Published electronically, a pdf copy can be downloaded here to help you distribute copies or just if you prefer the printed format.

Current issue: Cuttings 129
  • Give your teams face-to-face time - getting remote teams together improves results
  • Perform like the All Blacks -develop a feedback-rich culture to emulate the best rugby team in the world
  • Influencing without authority - managers need to be aware that their impact is different to their intention - the gap is great.
  • Plus details of Public Courses and Book Sales, and Snippets to further provoke your thinking and reflection.
