My latest book, and first to be published, is to be launched on Monday 1st February 2016.  Called 'Create your own revolution,' it marks a radical departure from the topics I have written about up until now.  It deals directly with how we can best influence change in our society by exerting our rights and talents as citizens.  As such, it combines political thought with personal development, in line with Mohandas Gandhi's exhortation that "we should be the change we seek."

My first book, 'Stand up and live' is now available for free download.

How do you take power in your life? This book will show you how to do so ethically, using the nine key steps.

·       Do you feel that your life should somehow be better than it is?

·       Are you on a treadmill, doing things you don't want to do, with no way of getting off?

Life’s irony never ceases to amaze me.  There I was, on the way to the BBC Scotland studio in Edinburgh when I stopped by at Haymarket station to buy some rail tickets.

Scenes like this before have been accompanied by silence, or the odd word.  I’ve had officious, surly ticket sellers, and friendlier types, though not often with conversation extending beyond the weather.  However, this particular chap was different.  He was chirpy beyond the usual call of duty.

The September 2013 inaugural edition of 'Living an Ageless and Beautiful Life' features an article from me about personal resilience, which is pitched primarily at the female market.  Having said that, I've read the magazine, and there are some interesting articles in it.  To get a copy of the magazine, click the link above.

If there’s one word that is used to describe the world we live in, that word is ‘rational.’  Rationality is a highly prized commodity, particularly in the Western world.  We are generally expected to behave rationally.  When I did my economics degree, all talk was of the rational consumer, buyer or seller.  At work, rationality tends to be rewarded as a behaviour, and people who make decisions on more emotional grounds are often derided as ‘weak.’

Is it just me?  I’ve lost count of the number of introverted people I meet in my work, who say things to me like:

“I’m an introvert, so I can’t network”

“Leaders are always extraverts, so I don’t think I can lead”

Or my personal favourite:

“I’m an introvert, but I wish I was an extravert!”

It seems that, every day, leadership makes the headlines.  Only yesterday, the news that Britain's top bosses enjoyed a 10% pay increase in 2011 - 12, way above UK employees, will rightly lead to more controversy about bosses rewarding themselves for mediocre performance.

I'm delighted to have received news that I am to present to the CIPD People & Organisation Development group on 21st November 2012.  The title is 'Building resilience and engagement', two areas I have been busy with so far this year.

November 2011 has been an interesting month.  A month of near unremitting bad news, which featured the near collapse of the Euro (which will eventually happen), and 1 million 16-24 year olds out of work in the UK.  Against this backdrop, we have the City of London encouraging the Government to cut higher rates of income tax to encourage "entrepreneurial activity".  The BBC has got in on the act with a new series about money, which began by looking at the rise of wealth coaching.
