The reality of a long recession is dawning across the world. All businesses will be affected, not necessarily disastrously – the total economies still remain a formidable market – however all businesses will need to refresh themselves, all will need to rethink their model, where they focus their energies, how they motivate their people, and for many what standards of performance they should set to survive. John Toppin and I will be writing a monthly column in the RIBA Journal backed by a growing number of articles on my website www.jamescookecoaching.com. John’s website is www.nomizon.co.uk. This blog is an important third leg of our effort. We want to hear your comments, your thoughts and your experiences – please use it.
