The recent political events in the UK have reminded me of a saying that I often use; ‘the only thing we can predict about people is that people are unpredictable’. You may be wondering what I mean by this…
I’m fascinated by the behaviours of people. What we can learn from observing them–especially in organisations.
And so I found myself wondering, in the midst of one the most historic votes in Europe’s history: 'What if the EU were an organisation and Britain one of its business units? What advice would I be giving them?'
As we barrel towards a potential Brexit (British Exit) from the EU and watch on with a mix of intrigue and disbelief as the USA seems to genuinely consider Donald Trump as a Presidential candidate, I am struck by how much of the debate is being driven by the fear of difference.
