Profit on Purpose: Meaning that Makes Money
Finding a sense of purpose at work is essential for people—and for profit.
Most of us work for more than 50% of our waking hours for over 50 years of our lives. Instead of trading purpose for earnings, I’ll show you how profit is not a purpose, but a direct metric of your impact.
Lead Between the Lines: A Leadership Attitude for Everyone
Leadership is not some theoretical knowledge that develops through tips and quotes. It’s about wanting to make changes that add value—and having the courage to do so. In this engaging two-hour experience, you'll be empowered to be less of a victim and more of a leadership in every aspect of your life.
Beyond Sticks and Carrots: Engaging Today’s Workforce
Few things are worse than a disengaged workforce.
Motivating human beings doesn't require bribery or flattery. Using analogies from the world of sport, I’ll show you how to create a high challenge, low threat environment that brings out your employees’ very best.
Change Culture, Fast: Turning Good Intentions into Great Behaviours
Believe it or not, but cultural issues are getting in the way of your business's strategy.
This is a workshop for top teams who are interested in rethinking their culture. Time isn't going to help your business; time in the enemy of change.
Regional CEO, HSBC Latin America, HSBC

Executive Vice-President, Shell E&P
This was about finding solutions to existing problems, removing barriers, understanding and aligning the organisation, rather than producing more work. I’d like to thank Javier and his team for their contribution to my leadership team.

I recently met with a traditional organisation in London who wants to ‘upgrade their culture’. Like many, they believe that their culture will change if they give it enough time.
But time does not change cultures. On the contrary, it finds and reinforces the reasons for why things won’t ever change: “IT always has other priorities”, “she never listens”, “people don’t work together here”, “nobody cares”, etc.
Change is not a function of time but of courage, the courage to decide.
The ending ‘-cide’ in decide (like in homicide or suicide) means ‘to kill off’.
In this case, to stop what doesn’t reinforce the culture.
When it comes to Culture Change, many organisations struggle to decide on old policies, procedures and ways of working that no longer make sense. I heard a passionate head of HR defending the company’s ‘Employee Loyalty Reward’ (ELR, as they call it).
