Resilience – Change Fatigue

Resilience – Change Fatigue

If we are honest with ourselves, it is clear that change is here to stay. As a Business Professional you have to realise that your ability to cope and adapt with change will be one of your core keys to success.

Our eyes have been opened to the fact that lapses of ethical behaviour happens every day in the corporate world and in private lives. The reality is that the most ethical human beings can fall prey to the lures of riches and abundance. For this reason it is important for the emerging Business Professional to constantly develop and monitor his/her character and not only adhere to professional codes of conduct.

Leadership in the Trenches

Leadership in the Trenches

Movies about the military and war give us the idea that the decision makers in times of combat are never on the battleground. They sit somewhere in an office far away from the action and bark out the orders. These orders are then to be executed by those poor soldiers...
