The Power of Crowd Learning and Development Strategists: The Heroes and Heroines who Strive to Make Vital Information, Training, Mentoring and Networking Accessible to All
I firmly believe the Alzheimer's Society is a 'learning organisation' at its best. Their model fully integrates and supports its staff, volunteers, sufferers and their families.

Paternalistic Project Parliament: How Dr Phillip Lee MP's Healthcare System is Helping Prevent 'Baby P Tragedies'
As bad systems beget bad systems, good systems beget good systems - that's just the way it is. It is too late for the likes of poor Baby P, but we CAN seek to protect other children who are at risk by supporting MPs who promote this essential state-of-the-art, MIS-powered Super Hospital system model.

As Charlotte says herself, there's a very good reason for the delay and that's because she suffers from dyslexia, which makes reading paperwork difficult. But as a qualified coach, I believe the fact that Charlotte was prepared to put off the paperwork is a sign of her EXCELLENT sense of priority, NOT a sign of poor personal performance.

My Grandfather tragically lost his friend on the battlefield and suffered from depression for the rest of his life, which rendered him unable to speak for the days surrounding 11 November. My Great Uncle was severely, severely shell shocked and as an additional complication, the PTSD triggered psychotic episodes during which there was an attempt to break into Buckingham Palace.
