Half a Hexagon
shaping simple ideas in a complex world
Hallo, this is a short note to introduce my newsletter to you which I generally share on a fortnightly basis and the books, podcasts and ideas circulating which are influencing my thinking.
A proper one is coming on Sunday but of course if you don't want to receive it please just unsubscribe below - I know how it is with jammed inboxes.
Briefly, since my paper about the future of work and the workplace was published last week it's had some good media pickup: From the Today programme last Friday to LBC with brilliant Shelagh Fogarty today, and in the Financial Times the management writer Andrew Hill cited the paper in a piece specifically looking at time and how punching the clock needs to be systematically re-evaluated: something I strenuously argue for in the paper.
The paper benefitted from the considerable wisdom of a number of wise owls, not least Professor Lynda Gratton, also quoted in the FT piece, Hilary Cottam, Martin Wolf, William Eccleshare, Dennis Owusu-Sem, Tom Adeyoola, Josh Greene, Stefan Stern...and Charles Handy.
Stefan and I are busy working on the podcast of The Nowhere Office - more soon, and I've just signed the contract to write a the book of The Nowhere Office which will be published next year.
