A Personal Rant: Absentee Leaders

Imagine a football team in which the on-field leader (the captain) hangs around the center circle watching everyone else kick the ball around. They observe from a distance. They send an email when somebody loses the ball. They don’t even join in with the half-time water break. They drink their own private water, perhaps a more premium brand, in a …

When discussing work teams, many leaders immediately imagine a static group of individuals that have been together for some time. These teams are usually seen as quite stable, consisting of carefully selected individuals who have been coached over time.

The Best Time to Visit Phuket for Team Building

High Season vs. Low Season Back in the day, Phuket was a prime destination for tourists between November and April. The traditional “high season”. We then had a “low season” for the rest of the year. It’s during the low season that we get more rain – which, of course, explains why this time of year was named the low …
