Magic Feathers

The second video in this series of reflections on working with people. We sometimes create magic feathers, things that seem to trigger more effective behaviour. But we risk turning them into idols at the expense of taking risks and making new discoveries.

Reflecting on trying to impress

I’m making some more little videos reflecting on the business of working with people. This first one was prompted by looking at the sales pitches of training companies at a conference/exhibition. I describe the event as exciting, but in a boring kind of way.

It got me thinking about the urge to impress, and how it can affect the way we talk and create together.
