Developments in 2019

For over 20 years I've had a foot in two camps - purchasing and personal development.

Whilst often delivering both to clients I've kept my social media separate. That double life has confused clients, and me, which has led to the decision to move my blogging to my personal development blog - Landscaping Your Life.

I do hope that you'll join me there as we continue to explore landscaping our success together.

Are you a crocodile or an elephant when listening to others

 

Are you a Crocodile? 
 
or are you an Elephant?
 
The above question was raised by one of the participants on a recent category and supplier management workshop whilst discussing influencing stakeholders.
 
Whilst I'm sure someone will tell me that a crocodile's hearing is very acute - for me it illustrated the old adage "We have two ears and one mouth for a reason: to listen twice as much as we speak".
