I recently visited the oldest remaining family friend that I have, a lady of 102. She lives in her own home, helped by her daughter and carers, and is physically very frail but lively and alert in every other way.

What’s the best way to let your colleagues and staff know how they’re doing and find out how you’re doing yourself? The notion of “radical candour” has been mentioned often in the media since the New Year: some say “tell it like it is” with no ambiguity or couching what you say to someone in Read more about “Tell it like it is” the key to good feedback?[…]
I was fortunate to visit the Houses of Parliament recently and had a fascinating look behind the scenes courtesy of my MP and his assistant. It was the day of the Autumn Budget statement which followed Prime Minister’s Questions, so there was quite a buzz around the place. A couple of things struck me; there were Read more about Order, Order! – Diversity in Parliament[…]

Well, the Prime Minister does it, and so can the rest of us! Kitten heels, animal prints and zingy yellow may not be your thing, but you can pull off a good work look that’s fashionable, distinctive and smart.
