C.S. Lewis: Success & Storytelling… Life & Lessons

C.S. Lewis HeaderA few days ago I came across a question on an application form that really sparked my attention. The question was ‘If you could choose any person to have dinner with, who would you choose?’ and unlike the other questions on the sheet I wasn’t sure of my answer straight away. As with most people, there are many people that inspire me. To pick only one, was impossible.

To find the answer I went back to my roots and I thought about what ‘success’ meant to me. To me it meant being the best you can be, but also resonating with the world around you.  In the end I chose a figure that has been in my life from the very beginning, a writer called C.S. Lewis.

Whether you’re a budding author or not it is impossible to deny that this man was one of the most successful in his field. The depth in which his series’ go to provide an escape for his readers is unique and admirable, but the length of time that his work has remained celebrated is possibly one of the most phenomenal indications of his success as a storyteller.

His novels have globally sold in their millions, his stories have been adapted in their hundreds, for all kinds of media, and his name is one I believe will live on forever in his field. I’ll further discuss the life and lessons of C.S. Lewis below. » Read more..

Is Your Boss A Psycho? The Link Between Leaders & Psychopaths…

psychopath leader

When we hear the word ‘psychopath’ we immediately think of murderers behind bars, but what you might be interested to know is that ‘psychopath’ is actually just a term for a person with a collection of traits that we all show some sign of ourselves in everyday life.

A psychopath is someone who acts without conscience in order to fulfil a certain goal. This lack of conscience could take form in someone who for example, gives the slow worker the sack without hesitation or takes complete credit for the combined efforts of his team.

Many psychopaths are in prison, as you’d expect, but what you might be surprised to hear is that the psychopath on the street is four times as likely to be found in senior management than any other career path. It’s these ‘psychopaths’ we’ll look at further in this post below.
