It’s Virtually Gone and it’s Virtually Crazy

Well, what a year 2020 has been …

For some this year has been the most brutal – entertainment, restaurants, pubs, and other businesses have been devastated as restrictions and market uncertainty conspired to keep customers away.

For others, health has been impacted – either through contracting the virus or through mental health being adversely affected – loneliness, isolation and lack of human interaction being a huge factor in this outcome.

Too Busy to Be Me …

I have had many conversations recently with friends and colleagues and realised that I need to seriously work on being less grown up!

What is Conscious Leadership?

Well, an easy answer is leading with presence by thinking about it …

Although, as with all things, that would be way too simplistic a view. To be a conscious leader we first have to invest time in understanding self – in fact to be any kind of fully functioning human being we probably have to do this! Let’s stick to leadership though…
