We read and hear every day that most of the big major corporations, making good use of the valuable learnings over the last months, they are kicking-off ambitious and needed initiatives looking at the workplace of the future. Looking at recreating a workplace that will meet better the needs of people and organizations.

Where I am going to buy my next bike from

by George Pastidis

The lockdown got over in France two weeks ago and the weather was sunny and beautiful. Perfect timing for getting back to my biking habit. I jumped on my Orbea trekking bike and I headed to Verrières, a nice forest up on a hill only 4 km from my place. Few hundreds of meters before I reach my destination, I realized that I got a flat tyre. Never was a handy man. I walked the bike back and the very next day, I took it to the shop for fixing it. Same shop I had bought the bike from a year back read more…

What are the choices when someone puts a gun to your head?

by George Pastidis

Harvey Specter, the super-duper attorney in the legal drama “Suits” says: “What are your choices when someone holds a gun to your head? You do what they say or they shoot you, right? Wrong! You take the gun or pull out a bigger gun or you call a bluff or you do any of the other 146 other things”. What Harvey does not say is when you have the gun pointing your head, your brains freeze and this is why you fail to see other options than doing what they say or get shot. And in case we’re talking about a negotiation deal: cave or deadlock read more…

Working from home in COVID-19 times

by George Pastidis

We all are bombed with tons of brilliant tips for working better remotely in these COVID-19 times. Lots of them are real good stuff that I appreciate. Some others though are a bit funny addressing the wrong target group of people. It’s one thing to guide someone who plans to switch to teleworking in good and stable times and it’s another to share luxury tips with people who see their personal and work lives turned upside down overnight read more

Write the script of this disaster movie

by George Pastidis

Challenging times. Tough, unprecedented, weird, sad times. I could go on and on thinking of the right words to describe better what we go through. But there are no such words. The whole thing is like those disaster or FBI movies that a cool agent is looking for the evil guys who are about to spread a horrible virus which could kill thousands or millions of innocent people. The bizarre thing with this movie is that we’re the actors and to a great extent, we write the script and we co-direct it. read more…

Continuous learning and credentials for sales

by George Pastidis

A colleague who is a learning consultant that I work very close with, came across a senior sales leader the other day who was wondering if it makes sense a successful seller who has currently won a significant deal to get more sales training or go for some sales learning credentials. I fully understand if a top seller who might have just aced a multimillion 5G deal has second thoughts about investing time on getting some 5G learnings and earning a 5G badge. Valid points and fair concerns which need to be addressed. read more…
