1. How to overcome executive isolation. In many large organisations, senior executives are surrounded by assistants, chiefs of staff, and advisors. The purpose of this entourage is to leverage the leader’s time - but, intentionally or not, too many executives receive only news and opinions that have been filtered, orchestrated, or even censored to include what the “senior circle” thinks they should hear.
2. Inflation is expected to drop next week. The Consumer Prices Index – which measures the average increase in the prices of goods and services purchased by many households – is expected to fall significantly from its current rate of 10.1 per cent to between 8 and 8.5 per cent. Lower inflation “could spell good news for many mortgage holders”, “as experts say it may decrease the likelihood of a further interest rate rise next month”. i News
3. Leadership training crucial to organisational success. Each leader's capacity for achievement is the result of natural talent combined with intentional development, but organisations often fail to intentionally develop their leaders. However, when leaders grow, the effect can be powerful.  When employees strongly agree that they trust the leadership of their organisation, they are 4x as likely to be engaged.  Employees who strongly agree that leaders help them see how changes made today will affect their organisation in the future are 7.5x as likely to feel connected to their company culture.  When employees strongly agree that the leadership of their organisation communicates effectively with the rest of the company, they are 73% less likely to feel burned out at work. Want to know more?
