I often hear corporate L&D people say, ‘We need to be better at storytelling.’ But what does this mean in practice? Often, it means that they want their salespeople to tell stories to help them build better customer relationships. Or they want people who were previously working behind the scenes to become more customer-facing. Another key outcome is that they want to start changing their organisational culture. This makes sense. Why? Because, when well-structured and well told, stories are all about transformation. They appeal to the heart as well as the head and, if people can find themse ..read more

Happy team after completing The Fundamentals of Public Speaking workshop with Ginger.The Anatomy of a Successful Team If you were to examine the anatomy of a successful team, you’d probably find that the ties binding it together are often formed through shared experiences.

Last week, I attended a fascinating event promoting Citizens’ Assemblies – an exciting format of ‘deliberative democracy’ that fosters informed discussions among a wide range of people with the aim of using ‘hive wisdom’ to address the trickiest of subjects. For example, according to the Electoral Reform Society, it took only 99 ordinary citizens to help break years of political deadlock and reach a consensus on the highly polarising issue of abortion in Ireland, one of the most contentious political and religious issues you could imagine. Citizens’ Assemblies are a clever and captivating idea ..read more

Much has been written about the physical and mental health impacts of the pandemic but what’s currently emerging is a picture of the challenges faced by the so-called ‘Covid generation’ of employees – the graduates and interns who have recently entered the workforce. A recent article in the Financial Times revealed that Deloitte and PwC are investing in extra coaching for their youngest UK staff after noticing that recruits whose education was disrupted by lockdowns lack confidence in speaking up in meetings, making presentations, collaborating with colleagues and networking. It seems clear th ..read more

In our most recent Ginger leadership conversation, we invited senior leaders to discuss the tender topic of vulnerability. Researcher and author Brene Brown, who’s best known for her TED talk on the power of vulnerability, says that vulnerability is not only the birthplace of love, belonging, joy and creativity but also the source of hope, empathy, accountability and authenticity. These words hold particular significance in the context of leadership, as vulnerability plays a pivotal role in our quest to be engaging and empathetic leaders.  It’s a delicate balance to strike, as we must be ..read more

In just a few days either side of International Women’s Day, I experienced the kind of heart-centred power surge that can only be generated when women support women – first at Ginger’s Game Changers Women’s Leadership Summit and second at the start of a Ginger leadership communications programme for women in the legal industry that I was co-facilitating in New York. Let’s start with Game Changers, a gathering of more than 100 women leaders under the glass dome of the assembly hall at Church House in London’s Westminster. Our shared commitment was to take action as a force for good, amplify our ..read more

How do we as leaders approach challenging conversations? This was one of the questions on our minds as we were deciding on the theme of Ginger’s recent Leadership Conversation event. To help us find an answer, we invited a group of senior, visionary and ambitious leaders to share their approach to high-stakes conversations and best practices on how to inspire others to speak up on important matters – in other words, how to be courageous. We posed three questions to our participants and received some powerful, actionable insights.  What types of difficult conversations need to be had and w ..read more
