Welcome to my February newsletter. As always, I hope to earn the privilege of your time with this newsletter, so please send feedback on the content you would like to see more of! This month is chock-full of books, thought leadership, and of course...Think Big.
LOOKING FOR SOME THOUGHT LEADERSHIP READS?
It’s been a busy month delivering talks to executives across a variety of industries!
I’ve been puzzling about how to quantify the damage that code-switching has on productivity. I’ve also been very focussed on the Great Resignation, 4-day work week, and 9-9-6 demise. If these topics interest you check out some of the things I have been contributing to…
BOOKS, BOOKS, AND MORE BOOKS!
I am still managing to read a whopping three books a week. I have to say that finding the time has not been so taxing. I have merely eliminated some Time Sinkers (my battle to digital detox continues) and have used my commute to the office much more efficiently.
Speaking of digital detox, the first pick of my reads for February is Disconnected by Emma Gannon. This book captures what it is to build a meaningful life in a world filled with distractions superbly.
I have been looking backward to move forward guided by mainstay thought leader Dan Pink. His new book The Power of Regret is one you will read, and read again.
I have also read this month (for the second time) I am a Girl from Africa. Written by one of LSE’s own alumni Elizabeth Nyamayaro. This is a book of optimism that describes the journey of one of the most extraordinary women of our time. Reading this book is a chance to get to know Elizabeth’s journey as well as her vision of a world with more equality.
THINK BIG GOES INTERNATIONAL!
Think Big continues to amaze me with how it has captured hearts and minds. I celebrated earlier this month selling rights to Russia, and it will soon be released in Korea (January) and Japan (April). Thank you so so much for supporting Think Big!
That’s it for February, I hope I have earned the privilege of your reading time! Please get in touch with any questions or comments via my website. I am particularly interested in hearing questions on careers or life in general, where I may be able to help by digging out the best behavioural science insights for you to utilise. Hope to hear from you soon!
All my very Best
