When life at the top becomes too lonely…


  • When you’re unsure of the loyalties of those around you…

My articles reflect various aspects of my work. Use the menu to select particular themes.

If you feel I might be able to help you, please call, use skype, or email.

  • Never has spelling been more important This isn’t intended to be a lengthy post, but I hope that the point will be taken. According to a survey of 200 heads of schools by a leading education magazine, 70% of headteachers said Facebook and Twitter are bad for literacy (1).

  • When selection methods are a waste of time… Prompted by a piece of research published almost four years ago now, writing on the BBC News website, today (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-27813535), Lucy Kellaway suggests; In most offices a raft of mainly pointless, cumbersome tools are used to assess performance, including “competency matrices”, appraisal interviews and psychometric testing.
