In collaborating with a client on a project where we are moving from the “WHY” and “WHAT” to the choice of “HOWs” that will be actioned to action the Cascading Leadership model of “Align, Engage, Enrol” for their organisation.
This style of formation of an idea is what Chip Conley calls an “Emotional Equation”, with my post on this being what catalysed he and I to meet and grow to know and work with each other, a happening from my writing I am most grateful for. (more…)
I love radical change, transformative and brave. Incremental change is important, “marginal gains” and all of that is vital to maintaining forward momentum. However, for me what I love is supporting leaders who are hungry and brave and know deeply that something more radical is needed and that this is their path.
So, when a client asks me for my advice on how to transformationally change their organisation, after I listen, ask questions, then listen some more, I often come up with this statement.
I frame the equation that way as for the “value” of a Radical Transparency “score”, to me, would be powered partly by being audaciously, radically transparent, but the real power comes with humility, by removing ego from the equation. (more…)

As the world looks for new models beyond linking all activity to monetary value, recently I wrote about Emotional Equations, which connect emotion and energy in measurable ways.
Today, our equation is :
C + (APQ + ED) / S
I learned this one from my friend and collaborator D’Arcy Vane, whose website has the beautiful Intent statement “SHARE KNOWLEDGE. CHANGE LIVES”, and who learned this from his friend Michael Jorgensen, filmmaker and story consultant.
D’Arcy relayed a conversation where Michael wrote the following:
