RESEARCH WELL UNDERWAY FOR
I&D LAUNCH IN MARCH

We are excited to update you on the Inclusion & Diversity Research Consortium, which will launch at the beginning of March. We are deep into the initial research; both Lynda and Nigel Guenole, Lecturer and Programme Director MSc Occupational Psychology at Goldsmiths University of London, are working with datasets that are providing interesting insights about the subtleties of diversity in leadership styles and how gender diversity relates to team performance. These insights will be instrumental in our conversations about how to create truly inclusive organisations and develop inclusive leaders, and how to manage generational and life-phase diversity in organisations. If you'd like to join us in this cutting-edge research consortium, contact Tina for more information.

VIDEO: CORPORATIONS MUST BUILD INNER RESILIENCE

Lynda was interviewed by Jo Confino of The Guardian newspaper in the UK about how to bring sustainability values into the heart of a corporation and the role of leaders in driving change. Lynda argues that for organisations to be able to sustain themselves and the world, they must build an inner resilience, connect with their communities and supply chains and tackle urgent global challenges. But are companies moving fast enough? Click here to watch.

GOING EAST

Lynda heads to Japan later this month, for a seminar at the Academy Hills Roppongi and a session at the Tokyo University iSchool. As we shared in an earlier issue of the newsletter, The Shift is selling well in Japan, with online book clubs generating even more support – and The Shift is now number 9 in the overall combined chart in the Amazon Kindle Store in Japan! We look forward to getting Lynda's thoughts on her trip for the next newsletter, and an insight into the Japanese workforce.

WORK, DRIVEN BY PASSION

We have been reading with interest about a social media experiment called #WillWorkFor. Through a series of short films (fictional), three workers – a hacker, an educator and a farmer – share their experiences in an imaginary alternate working world. Collaborative Fund, a team of New York investors, have been looking at how post-recession resilience has led to a new workforce, driven by passion and supported by technology platforms such as Creative Mornings, Taskrabbit and Good Eggs. Have a look at the videos and let us know what you think!

EDUCATOR WINS BUSINESS LEADER AWARD

The winner of the inaugural Lynda Gratton Business Leader Award, from the Australian Human Resources Initiative, has been named as Simon Gipson, head of St Michael's Grammar School. The award is designed to recognise leaders who demonstrate excellence in people management practices and have made outstanding contributions to the performance of their organisations. The judges praised Simon for leading the professional learning programme, which engaged all members of the community.

At the Hot Spots Movement we find it very encouraging that the business leader award was given to a headmaster: strong leadership in education has been a challenge for years and is key to developing great talent so in demand in both the private and public sectors as well as NGOs. Well done, Simon!

JOINING THE WSJ EXPERTS

Lynda has become one of 20 leadership contributors for The Experts, a new online forum at The Wall Street Journal. The panel of 20 - all highly influential corporate leaders, scholars and nonprofit heads – will commentate on agenda-setting management issues. The Experts is tabled for a February launch.
