The Intro

Lisette and Pilar reflect a bit on the last year, on their personal highlights.

The First Bit - Has anything changed?

We review some of the highlights of the world of work in 2014 and some of our predictions that never happened...

"We can't change the world of work if we don't change the conversation."

Pilar refers to the article: Flexible working - does it work for senior leaders? https://www.i-l-m.com/Insight/Inspire/2015/October/flexible-working-senior-leaders

Words We'd Like to See Disappear or Used Differently

"Community"
"Collaboration"
"Engagement"
"Remote working is not as good as working in the same room"
"Leadership"
"We don't have time for that..."
Don't ask Lisette about her book...
