Leadership

Farnham St Blog

Rich Thinking Versus Poor Thinking
I love this article! Work hard, be generous, be brave and you will be rich as well as wealthy!  Your mindset plays a large role in your leadership style.  Does your fear of disapproval, criticism or looking different hold you back? Read on…
This site does not focus on leadership exactly but it looks at ‘ mental models, decision making, learning, reading and the art of living’.  It offers a great snappy blog (with reading time estimates!), a private learning community with a host of resources and podcasts to assist you in ‘ thinking about thinking’.  Free newsletter too, but beware it’s a DAILY dose…
