Here are my 7 favourite company culture and leadership resources


They are resources I return to most often for guidance, knowledge or inspiration. It's a mix of books, videos, articles and podcast interviews some of which are quick and easy to consume, others require a bit of time investment. All of them are gifts that keep on giving. Enjoy!


1. An Everyone Culture: Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organisation by Lisa Lahey and Robert Kegan [Book]


An amazing book in which the authors found and studied organisations they DDOs - Deliberately Developmental Organizations. A DDO is organized around the simple but radical conviction that organizations will best prosper when they are more deeply aligned with people's strongest motive, which is to grow. The book is full of ideas, guidance, frameworks but most of all an incredible eye opener how we can build our organisations.
