Episode 3: 18th January 2018

In Episode 3 we started the show with a discussion about the Forbes article listing the Best Countries For Business in 2018 and the fact that the UK topped the list. We then moved onto the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Quality of life report which placed Norway at the top of the list ranking work-life balance, financial wealth and quality of environment. The website we referred to is the OECD Better Life Index.

One to watch in 2018 is the role of the Small Business Commissioner and the complaints handling service for SMEs. The Commissioner was only appointed in October 2017 and there’s little information available about outcomes at the moment so we’ll be revisiting the topic later in the year.

The book we reviewed this week was The Dip by Seth Godin and Tracy shared the fact that this book was pivotal at two points in her business life.

This week’s management guru is Charles Handy, author of Understanding Organisations, Gods of Management and The Age of Unreason, plus many more. he describes himself as a social philosopher.

“A consultant solves other people’s problems. I could never do that. I want to help other people solve their own problems”.

“You have to stand outside the box to see how the box can be redesigned”.
