My approach is based around creating disturbance in order to destabilize habits and comfort zones: the enemies of change (as I see it). Outside of habits and comfort zones is fertile ground, but there may also be fear and suffering. There can be no guarantees that stepping into fertile ground will yield resilience, but it’s more likely to get results than doing nothing.

Stewards are “possibility engineers”. Gatekeepers are “progress suppressors”. Be a steward not a gatekeeper when working in partnerships.Read More
Content management systems are now easy to navigate and use for professionals with little or no coding skills. So what kind of innovations are we seeing in the field today? And what will these mean for people who use a CMS for their work?Read More
I didn’t know what to expect going into the Boye 18 conference. The fact that the conference was in the Danish town of Aarhus, not the most famous of conference towns, should have given me a hint as to the special nature of this festival, which in hindsight seems to be a more accurate word than conference.Read More

Then, on a nice Monday morning, the assistant would tell us that we have resigned from our current job, and that we are starting a job at another company. Of course, that job is better paid and with more perspective than the one at our previous company.Read More
