Apparently, it does, but then again it may well be another myth that needs some busting when talking about the impact of remote / distributed work in shifting plenty of our mental models, behaviours and habits in terms of how work does happen nowadays. You see? Small talk hasn’t always had a good reputation. In … Continue reading Myth Busting – Does Office Small Talk Really Matter while Working Remote / Distributed?
Apparently, innovation can only happen within the four physical walls of an office. Who knew, right? Or, at least, that’s what we have been told by certain people, once more, as another false narrative that demands we all get back to work, i.e. back to the office, if we would want to continue pushing for innovation to … Continue reading Myth Busting – Innovation Can Only Happen at the Office
Remember when Social Capital was cool back in the mid-90s at the same time Knowledge Management (KM) was in fashion? Remember when we decided to kill both just a few years later, as we purposely defaulted to focus, almost exclusively, on business processes and technology, leaving behind the people component from the good old KM … Continue reading Myth Busting – Can’t Build Social Capital with Remote / Distributed Work
I am grateful LinkedIn has, finally, managed to open up my eyes and leave behind the lab rat race it’s become over the years.

I have … Continue reading Differences between Remote and Distributed Work – All about Power, Symbols and Rituals!
We live in truly exceptional times, literally. There is not a single doubt about it. The current COVID-19 pandemic has changed our daily lives for good to the point where we know now we will never be the same again. No matter how much we may try to hide it all in that so-called new-normal. … Continue reading Distributed Work in Exceptional Times
Over the course of the last few weeks it’s become a bit of a challenge finding the time to focus and write my next blog post over here.

It has been a short while since I last had a chance to create a new blog post over here. If I were to summarise what’s been going on throughout the last couple of weeks, I would probably do it with a single sentence: We truly live in extraordinary times. And, frankly, with that, you … Continue reading IntraTeam – Mastering the Art of Persuasion through Stories
Over the course of the last six years, since I went independent, I have had the opportunity (and still do!) of unlearning a few things in the space of knowledge sharing and collaboration tools. One of the most significant and impactful ones has been acknowledging the fact what once used to be the main good old … Continue reading Hybrid Worlds
If I were to describe with a single word the last three years since I wrote a blog post over here, that word would definitely be Transitions.
