The 900-pound Gorilla: Moral Acuity

 

"DURING TIMES OF UNIVERSAL DECEIT, TELLING THE TRUTH BECOMES A REVOLUTIONARY ACT".
George Orwell

Mitt Romney (Republican Senator – Utah) recently said that Donald Trump was the “900-pound Gorilla in the midst of the Republican Party” (Forbes, Nov. 8th 2020). Romney insinuates that this is a precarious and a serious moral dilemma for the party. As much as Trump has been controversial, brought division and caused “harm” the fact remains that circa 72 million people voted for him (or at least the GOP).


So, what to do with this unruly Gorilla which represents...

Chicken Leadership

 

Courage is a precious commodity in human character and an important aspect to any effective leaders ability to influence.  Courage comes from deep within and is always on tap, always vigilant and always scanning for the right thing to do.  Courage is about confronting fear and is ultimately about personal sacrifice.  It manifests as a behaviour but is visceral and lies at the heart of one’s soul and one’s values.  Courage is moral certainty.

TRAPPED IN DEMOCRACY

 

Politics plays a pivotal and pervasive role in the lives of people in the UK and always has.  It pervades every aspect of life and is literally part of an individual’s psyche both consciously and sub-consciously.  What this means is that the precariousness of politics, such as that driven by Brexit, creates a "symbiotic psychology". As citizens, we too feel the heightened angst, tension, fear, anger, frustration, resentment, stress, disappointment, betrayal and such just as the politicians who are directly in the midst of this “crisis” irrespective of which side of...

INTELLIGENT MANAGEMENT

 

There are two management adages that often get quoted in policy development circles – namely:

“What gets measured gets done” (or some variation of this); and “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”. 

Both of these quotes are generally attributed to the management guru Peter Drucker. They are interesting quotes because of course they essentially contradict and fight against each other – in that one is encouraging you to be very formulaic and process driven in your approach – and the other is warning you against this. But of course, that is the essence of modern...
