EQ. EI. Whatever acronym you prefer, one thing I reckon we can probably agree on, is that having a high level of EI is absolutely crucial in order for someone to be a good leader. Quite frankly, if you don’t agree with that statement, I’m not quite sure what you are doing here reading a blog [...]

Picture this: Jason is a member of your team. He’s been with you for a few months now, and he’s a pretty good addition to the team. Ok, yeah, you’ve noticed a couple of times in team meetings that he says something that doesn’t always seem to land well with the rest of the team. But [...]

Communication is the most critical ingredient of good, let alone great or exceptional, culture. There. I said it.

What is belonging in a workplace context, and what does it look like? Diversity and inclusion go hand in hand with  what a sense of belonging looks like in workplaces. You’ve probably heard Vanessa Meyers infamous quote, and if we add belonging in, it looks a little like this. Imagine thanks to Quozio However [...]

Recently I was asked to submit a Bio for a prospective new client, along with a specific request to include examples of client testimonials.

As I noted in a recent ‘Tuesday Tip’ on Workology Co’s socials, the rise and rise of hybrid working arrangements has absolutely been one of the Very Best Things to come out of the pandemic. IMO. However, this little workplace culture nerd is becoming increasingly concerned at hearing stories of organisations  latching onto the concept of [...]

It’s been a tough decade or more supporting the Old Dark Navy Blues: personally, I experienced the darkest night of my Carlton soul in August 2021 where, after I watched [...]
