The Change-a-thon: Catalysing Initiatives

MARATHON? HACKATHON? CHANGE-A-THON!

Questions Every Leader Should Ask: Transformation

FREEDOM AND POSSIBILITIES

Our ‘Questions Every Leader Should Ask’ series was initially proposed as one of those ‘25 questions’ list-type articles that seem popular, at least

Both CEO & Chair: ‘Yea’ or ‘Nay’?

CEO, CHAIR, OR BOTH?

Historically, in companies with an executive board, it was common to find a CEO also holding the role of Chairperson.
