A Very Merry Christmas

Well it’s nearly
here. The time of year when even the hardest nosed of commercial creatures switch off for the season.

At Scotwork we are no different.

We are putting away our planning tools, our diagnostic apps, our value creation engines and negotiation logs.

We are slipping into our comfy slippers, lighting the wood burner, scattering chestnuts all around the hearth and chilling the white whilst gently warming the mulled red.

Presents are wrapped with not a care in the world as to whether they are reciprocated. The joy is in the giving, and seeing the pleasure that creates in others (it is Christmas after all!).

So no negotiating (of a business-related sense at least) for a few days. Getting recharged ready for what promises to be a big year in 2017. A year fresh with all the hyper uncertainties we are going to be facing, like it or not. A cloud of possibilities.

When January comes around we have to be ready. We will be. Hope you will be too!

If not, who you going to call?

Merry Christmas from all at Scotwork.

The next BLOG will be published on the 11th January.

Qualifications

“When it comes to the qualifications we demand of our president, to start with, we need someone who will take the job seriously.” Michelle Obama. Don’t stop reading - this blog is not about Donald Trump. In the run up to the election of a new Labour Party Leader 4 years ago, the four candidates were invited by LBC radio to quiz each other. You can see the questions to Jeremy Corbyn here. There are two points of note. Firstly, when asked if he wants to be Prime Minister he ducks the question several times, instead referring to the ideological changes he wants to make within the Labour Party. Secondly when asked about his qualifications and experience to be leader of a major political party his answer is objectively underwhelming – before being an MP, he says, he had been a local councillor for 10 years. I don’t think it is difficult to relate those answers in 2015 to the current divided state of the Labour Party.
