    Leadership is never greater than the quality of thinking

    Think about it

    How you approach leadership, understanding complexity, problem-solving, understanding complexity, and design solutions (or not!) is first thought and then action.

    Your grey matter, therefore, becomes a vital tool to continually
    refine to produce high-quality thinking and actions.


    Thinking newsletter fills your grey matter to do just that. What

    makes this newsletter different from others? Quite simply you

    get to learn the fundamental principals of high-quality thinking.

    What's Inside

    It's a resource. You will be introduced to a vast reservoir of practice-based thinking that integrates the best of three worlds - first principle science and academic rigour and real-world commercial application.

    Four Industrial Revolution (4IR) thinking. Pseudoscience, textbook MBA models and armchair philosophy have diminishing returns in 4IR. We guide you by focusing on frameworks, models and skill set necessary for effective next-generation leadership (based on extensive research (World Economic Forum - 'Future of Work 2019', University College London/Freeformers, - The Future Workforce Model and Isos Mori Generations Social Research Institute).


    Focused intention. We raise your awareness about approaches to understand complexity, solving difficult problems, and designing/ implementing solutions. When you're confused think of this as your 'Prof.' who's giving you ‘bottom line' clarity.


    Respect for context. Our readers are from every corner of the globe - China, Europe, Middle East, UK, South Africa, USA, Russia, etc., In addition from across all sectors - finance, automotive, sport, FINTECH, tourism, government, health care, etc. Each has a particular socio-cultural 'DNA'. All these variable might seem confusing, but our essential starting point is you - the human being and culture (I.e. ethnography).


    Functional. Practice-based, versatile and applicable. Simply add context, shake and apply.
