So, while adding my dad’s eulogy to the blog was very cathartic and I got some very lovely comments of support…it did make writing a blog after it quite difficult. Where do you go after piece talking about your dad passing away. It’s taken me a year, but I finally think I’m ready to move on and start blogging again.
In the last year, lots has happened…I now live in London, work for Transport for London and have started to get involved in a movement to change the way the business world looks at culture and treats it employees. Both Culturevist and ResponsiveOrg have given me some great ideas and things to think about…if you’re not involved and you have an interest in culture then get involved today!
One of the things I often talk about at these events is my belief around inverting the pyramid. This is basically taking the standard hierarchical structures most people just accept and flipping them so the most important person are your frontline staff and the least important your CEO…this is a broad definition of what I think…but generally correct!
I want to use this blog to talk about that and some of the ideas around it. I know this is a big idea and something a lot of people disagree with, so hopefully it will spark discussion. This is in no way me saying I’m right and everyone should listen to me…this is me sharing some thoughts and looking to provoke debate and if I’m honest disagreement…I love talking to people to disagree with what I say!
So hopefully while the blog posts may be shorter in length they’ll be more often and hopefully more controversial, which is fun for everyone!
Speak soon, #invertthepyramid
