In the future, as we begin to acclimatise ourselves with the pace of technological change - everything - from the 'internet of things', 'smart cities' and especially the notion of things being 'built to last' may come to feel outdated.

At a time of unprecedented financial challenge in health and social care, the NHS must never ever find solutions by doing things less well.

Trusting Your Gut Instinct

In order to get the most out of your gut feelings, make a definite effort to focus your attention on it more regularly and make the time to care for it. Notice what it is telling you, whether it is saying 'this doesn't feel right' or 'this feels good' or 'Don't do it'.

Fatal Perfectionism or From Fear to Love

Are you familiar with that feeling? You start a new project, you would like to move to a different place, make an important phone call - and then suddenly it happens: the fear paralyzes you. You don´t reach out to the receiver, you stay there to live where you are - in other words - you give up?

Model Behaviour: Barbie, Body Image and the Importance of Transparency

Decades of experience and leadership is not enough today to engender trust in a brand. People are looking for honesty and transparency from brands. With information and opinion only a click away it is much easier for consumers to feel that the wool is being pulled over their eyes. McDonalds acknowledged this and success has come their way.

Trust Her, She's a Doctor...

My life has shown me that the biggest epiphanies come in the most unlikely of places. I just never expected a hospital treatment room to be one of them. And I definitely didn't expect the words of a Nuclear Medicine doctor to affect me so much that they touched me more deeply inside than anything I could have possibly imagined.

Trust In Me

Because that's what it's all down to. That's the reason Disney gave Kaa those huge saucery spiral eyes. It's eye contact. That's how we know whether we trust someone or not. Trust is a huge part of acting.

In Defence of Politicians

How on earth did this indifference and apathy set in? Why do we have this attitude that MPs are some different species altogether? Why do we demand they know the price of a pint of milk as if this is a perfect indicator of the political clout they hold?

Building Influence in a Fragmented World - How Can Brands Forge Meaningful Relationships With Consumers?

David Pemsel

The digital revolution has caused seismic changes for brands - from the way they connect with their audiences, to the channels they can use to reach them. The way people are consuming news has been turned on its head, with more and more people accessing content from global sources, using multiple platforms and sharing huge volumes of self-produced content themselves.

People v Politicians: When an Irresistible Force Meets an Immovable Object

One of life's big philosophical questions is what happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object. In UK politics over the coming weeks w...

The Modern Leader - Powerless, Flawed But Grounded

This humanization of leadership will lead to perhaps the most interesting element of evolution - namely, the exposure of individual values. It is here, at the core of the individual psyche, that if deserved, trust can be reforged and legitimacy rebuilt.

Forget Big vs Small Business - All Employers Can Help Rebuild the Reputation of Business

It sometimes feels that a week doesn't pass without a high profile example of business falling short of the standards expected by customers and wider society. In light of the tax controversy involving one of our biggest banks that continues to dominate headlines - this latest poll perhaps comes as no surprise.

When we lose someone's trust, we realize we have taken it for granted. And once lost, it is close to impossible to regain. Trust binds our world tog...

The Very Bad Apple

None of us like being taken for granted in work or at play but owner managers, perhaps more than most, find this behaviour very hard to forgive as by large we have sacrificed so much on our journey.

Employees Behaving Badly

The corruption of the world's biggest currency dealers was exposed recently, leading to US and UK regulators imposing £2.6bn of fines on six major banks. Although an extreme example, what we have here is a prime illustration of how bad behaviour in the workplace can have incredibly serious consequences for the organisations involved.

Overcoming the Jealousy Habit

Now most of us would be embarrassed to admit to feeling jealous. And most of the time, we wouldn't even realise that we're feeling jealous. But jealousy happens to the best of us, and when it does, it just creeps in, eats away at us and tastes sour. It makes us overreact, misinterpret and assume things. Simply put, jealousy is toxic; it doesn't look good or feel good.

Trust - The Must Have for the 21st Century Leader

Charles Elvin | Posted 24.12.2014 | UK

Trust means many things to many people which can make it quite a somewhat undefinable and vague subject. So what exactly is it? Why does it matter in a business context? And what does it look like in your organisation?

This week, some of the most socially and environmentally responsible brand's in the world are coming together to convince us that what brand of mascara you use, or what kind of watch you wear is as important as the career you've decided to pursue or the area you've opted to live in. And not for the reason you'd think.

You want to think the best of your fellow man. To believe that the good in them will always prevail. Their acts of decency and kindness making even the crappiest day seem somehow kind of wonderful .

Why Your Customers Will Cheat (If You Let Them)

We welcomed our latest intake of graduates last week. I was explaining our agency ethos to them: how we put the 'R' back into CRM (customer relationship management) and build genuine relationships between customers and brands.

Extreme and Dangerous

You'd think a book would be the least dangerous thing you could send to your friend who's just begun their summer holiday. Nothing could be much safer, it might seem, than relaxing on a deckchair, in a peaceful garden or hotel poolside terrace, with a book and a cool drink. But this is Northern Ireland, and when we send parcels, we have to risk assess.

Tackle Your Self Doubt

Sometimes we convince ourselves before we start that that, we shouldn't even try! All it takes is one small doubt to give up and to send our dreams and aspirations into a tailspin. Simply put, doubts sabotage you. They do not nurture or serve you.

Open Relationships for Monogamous People

There's a rumour going around, propagated by [some] polyamorists, that polyamory is a superior ideology to monogamy. Let's face it, 'limitless love' does sound wholly honorable and blissful, even if 'limitless sex' with multiple partners sounds ~ for most of our sex-negative society ~ quite the opposite.

Is Trust the New Business Currency?

Trust has become one of the world's most important commodities. Just ask the former CEO of a major American retailer, who resigned after a particularly large cyber attack or any other major organisation that has been hacked and customer data apparently lost.

The Edelman Trust Barometer found that 84 per cent of those surveyed think business can pursue its self-interest whilst doing good work for society. Giving young people a chance is a crucial part of doing good, and helps build trust externally and internally.
