Interesting facts you learnt about peer group mentoring
“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts” (Aristotle) – there is real power in the community coming together to solve thorny issues. Personal challenges in life can affect the professional, so too do professional challenges affect personal life. Organisations like the Academy for Chief Executives are good places to go to release that stress and put things in context. These organisations provide sanctuary and support for the CEO/Owner-Operator. It can be a lonely place when you’re leading, and this type of setting provides safety and security.
Five words to describe your experience with the Academy
Mind-changing. Supportive. Growth. Challenging. Commitment.

Your best management book and why
There are too many to choose just one! But a few of my favourites are ‘Good to Great’ by Jim Collins – this book is very easy to understand and it’s really good. ‘Willful Blindness’ by Margaret Heffernan is poignant. Another must-read is ‘Why should anyone be led by you?’ by Goffee and Jones. ‘The Untethered Soul’ by Michael A. Singer – is more about managing yourself, but I’d highly recommend it. As I said, too many! I could go on…
