This blog has been designed most for the benefits of my students. I am interested in spiritual intelligence because I believe it leads to happiness and resilience. If you want copies of my published research (conference papers or articles in journals), feel free to contact me.

Up and coming events

I have two training lined up. One should be on Saturday 13th June. This will be another "Developing Operational Excellence" but with a twist. I will focus on the Thinking Processes popularized by Eli Goldratt. On the 20th of June, I have a program with university students and I will focus on basic leadership skills.

Helping parents deal with conflicts at home

I have developed an interesting activity based on the Evapourating Cloud concept. This is a simple diagram for parents, when trying to communicate with their children, to present their perspective and their children's perspective. It allows both sides to understand what the other side is thinking and it allows both sides to understand each other's hidden assumptions. I plan to use this technique with managers in a training planned in June but the more I think about it, the more I can see it being used to diffuse conflict at home. Come to think about it, it can also be used to get husband and wife to better understand one another.
