Virtual Intelligence

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.” Leon C. Megginson The “new normal” has become just normal. Most of us have adapted to working remotely. The skills to navigate the virtual world has become a necessity. […]

2020 – End of Year Reflection

  Time to say Goodbye 2020 End of Year Reflection The year 2020 has been a year that went from Dragons and Despair to Dandelions and Dawns. Two quotes that summarise the year for me: “The only way to catch your breath, is to lose it completely” Taylor Knott Gregson I “lost my breath” more […]

Communication – A Neanderthals vs. Cro-Magnon

Communication A Neanderthals versus Cro-Magnon – A Key to Success A long long time ago, in a land far away (in what is now called Europe, but then was called ‘here’ in the local dialect), some Cro-Magnon type hunter gatherers, loping along in search of a juicy piglet, came across some other, even uglier, hunter […]

How To Be Human In An Epidemic

A while back I wrote an article ‘How to be human in the 4th Industrial Revolution’. In these Tolkien/Steven King times, I want to add to that. Not because I believe I know the answers… I don’t even know the question. I am no more equipped than anyone else – I just want to be […]

How To Be Human

Fourth Industrial Revolution. VUCA… Is it only me that feels bewildered, slightly confused, anxious and increasingly bored with all the doom and gloom that is happening in the world? Every day there is a new leadership theory, royal conspiracies, complex coaching models that we are exposed to. Amidst all the chaos and egos, it is […]

Hanrie Fridjhon talks – Ageing

Ageing Ageing… a swear word? For most of us women, ageing is a nasty word. It is a curse, the inevitable cost of youth. In business, youth replaces senior age. People retire earlier; they make way for hungrier, more energetic, fast-paced go-getters. The world is changing and the younger generation change with it. So, what […]

Hanrie Fridjhon talks – Letting go

“You can only lose what you cling to” Buddha Letting go I have a picture in my head of letting go… I see a hand slipping out of another hand… moving forward with confidence, maybe not yet with competence, but knowing that it can be done. Why is it so difficult to let go? Letting […]

Hanrie Hill praat – Sosiale Media

Reëls op Sosiale Meda Sosiale media is ‘n turksvy. Niks is meer geheim nie, al die heilige koeie is geslag en opgestop… Die lewe is nou deursigtig, inligting is ‘n knoppie weg. Daar is soveel voorbeelde van mense wat hulle werk verloor het nadat hulle te spraaksaam was oor kollegas en bestuurders. Daar is selfs […]

Hanrie Hill praat – Kommunikasie

Kommunikasie: Verwarring en verdwaling in vertaling Hoekom is kommunikasie so ingewikkeld? As ons dit ontleed: ons kommunikeer elke dag, gemiddeld tussen 160 en 200 woorde per minuut. Met tye meer, veral as ons rooi in die nek word. ‘n Mens sal veralgemeen, omdat ons dit heeldag doen, behoort kommunikasie eenvoudig te wees. Daar is ‘n […]

Hanrie Hill talks – Thrive on success

Hanrie Hill talks – Thrive on Success As a compulsive reader – too many books, too little time – I am always on the lookout for new books. Fiction and non-fiction, I try to read both. “Thrive” by Arianne Huffington, founder of the successful news and blog site, The Huffington Post, reads like fiction. Arianne’s […]
