This is the next series of posts from hand-picked guest bloggers about power; they have also written about trust . The idea for this series was kicked off by me rewatching Game of Thrones and thinking about its twin themes of power and trust. My second guest blogger to write about power is Susan Cooper, who comes from the corporate world and who I first met on Triberr but is now a firm friend on Twitter.  Her first guest post on trust is a wonderful read and can be accessed here if you haven’t read it. Susan is now very happy

This is the next series of posts from hand-picked guest bloggers about power; they have also written about trust . The idea for this series was kicked off by me rewatching Game of Thrones and thinking about its twin themes of power and trust. The first to write about power for this series is Cullen Habel, who I know personally, but first met via Twitter. If you haven’t read it, his first post about trust was a fabulous, enlightening read. I have great respect for Cullen because he is a straight shooter and tells it like it is, and this

This is the seventh in a series of posts from hand-picked guest bloggers about trust. The idea was kicked off by me rewatching Game of Thrones and thinking about its twin themes of power and trust.   My seventh guest blogger is Glynis  Rosser.  I first met Glynis on Twitter (of course!) but have only managed to cross paths with her once in real life.  She has two adult daughters (both of whom she likes to embarrass), and cannot remember her life being devoid of pets.  Glynis works in HR, has a keen interest in organisational development and can be found on Twitter

This is the fifth in a series of posts from hand-picked guest bloggers about trust. The idea was kicked off by me rewatching Game of Thrones and thinking about its twin themes of power and trust. My fifth guest blogger is Susan Cooper, who comes from the corporate world and who I first met on Triberr. When her job was eliminated, she found herself at odds with what to do next. Susan is now very happy being an artist, writer and blogger. Besides the fact that she tells really good stories, her biggest draw to her blog www.findingourwaynow.com would be

This is the fourth in a series of posts from hand-picked guest bloggers about trust. The idea was kicked off by me rewatching Game of Thrones and thinking about its twin themes of power and trust.   My fourth guest blogger is Sukh Pabial, who I  first met on Twitter when I was an L&D consultant. Sukh is a L&Der as well, and we have formed a collegiate friendship via Twitter. I have even guest blogged for him on his blog Thinking About Learning, and thought he was a perfect candidate for writing about trust. You can find Sukh on Twitter as

This is the third in a series of posts from hand-picked guest bloggers about trust. The idea was kicked off by me rewatching Game of Thrones and thinking about its twin themes of power and trust.   My third guest blogger is known as @aricochet, who I connected with on Twitter (of course). We have had many interesting conversations on all manner of topics including leadership, marketing and brain chemistry. And these conversations have been interesting enough to ask him to be a guest blogger on the subject of trust. Trust is the nervous system of our society. It’s the currency that

Steve is an Adelaide-based marketing consultant and radio commentator who keeps a personal blog at stevedavis.com.au. You can also find him on Twitter, where we first connected. Steve is actively engaged in the Adelaide marketing community. Whenever the subject of trust arises, I always think of the two important insights I’ve gleaned from Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly

This is the first of a series of posts from hand-picked guest bloggers about trust. The idea was kicked off by me rewatching Game of Thrones and thinking about its twin themes of power and trust.   My first guest blogger is Cullen Habel, who I know personally, but first met via Twitter. I have great respect for Cullen because he is a straight shooter and tells it like it is, and this brilliant post is no exception (being a straight shooter myself, I know what a burden this can be!). Cullen has worked in academia, sales, hospitality, retail and

(will insert picture later!) Yesterday, I was lucky enough to have my guest postpublished on Sukh Pabial’s Thinking About Learning blog. Sukh is a learning and development practitioner based in the UK. I know Sukh on Twitter as @naturalgrump and I stumbled across him when I was searching for learning and development professionals and thought leaders. Sukh and I tweet each other just about every day now, sometimes about learning and development, but most times not. The other day, Sukh kindly opened up his blog to guest bloggers to write about their biggest learning in life, and I put up
