Every night since March our national broadcaster has solemnly announced the statistics of COVID 19 deaths which have occurred in the UK. Periodically also, because the governments are devolved, the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish governments have pointed out that their fatality rates from the disease in their respective countries have been less awful than those in England where many have rationalised the difference as being affected by the size of cities, the make-up of the population or the density of housing. The figures showed...

Lockdown certainly sorts the gardeners out, at least around where I live. Some gardens I pass on my daily exercise hour are super-pristine, almost manicured in their perfection. Others remain a straggly mess, with the grass overlong and the weeds overblown. Mine fits into the latter category; not because I don’t care but because I don’t have the skill, the enthusiasm or the tools to do anything about it. So when an announcement was made yesterday...

As some of you may have read my previous blog, you will realise that I am now coming to the end of week 6 of my isolation. I have stopped and reflected on it as an experience which I have certainly never had before. Looking back, I have noted some really positive things (and negative ones as well, of course). Each day of those six weeks I have been...

Well, there we have it. The first secretary this week has pronounced that lockdown continues for another 3 weeks. The media were predicting such a statement, no doubt to soften us up for the confirmation. The awful statistics continue to build and whilst there is talk of light at the end of the tunnel, no one is totally convinced it’s not another train heading our way! Businesses are struggling, families battle on indoors and our front-line care workers are at full stretch. And the pubs are still closed. A dark time indeed. And yet, hidden amongst the misery there are some wonderful stories that lighten the mood.

I love being at home. I love being with my family. But ALL day, EVERY day? And then I reflected that one of the most important things we teach as professional negotiators is to ask questions, good questions, and then most critically, listen to the answers. In fact, the ability to listen is probably the ultimate negotiator's asset!

Last Saturday I got married. This week we were meant to be somewhere exotic, gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes and making plans for the start of our married life together. But. Then. COVID-19. Let’s face it are any of us living the life we planned for just now?!

Crisis? This bloody crisis! Be honest. Who saw this coming? Not me, that’s for sure. I was happily minding my own business, working, exercising (occasionally) seeing family and friends and looking forward to the start of better weather and a summer of holidays and warmth. Then that was it. The COVID-19 virus hit. Slowly to start with, and somewhere else.
