Strategies, Tactics and Tools for Empowering Talent, Teams and Leaders

Our fundamental human need to belong is a force so strong that it exerts a powerful influence over our behaviour. We will often act in ways that contradict our personal values in order to secure membership, reclaim membership or prevent exclusion from a group. This need to belong is a legacy of our evolutionary past. Survival was far greater for those who lived and worked together in groups. However, our ability to interact with others successfully for the common good of the group remains one of our greatest challenges.


We are currently doing some housekeeping on the blog so not all articles and posts are available. We hope to have things back to normal as soon as possible meanwhile we're sorry for any inconvenience.
