Since the Pride Parade protest and the GayTM and police pinkwashings, the Muppets’ “Rainbow Connection” has been in my brain. I just had to rewrite the lyrics! So thanks to Sam for helping out with the new title and if anyone wants to sing it and put it on YouTube or SoundCloud, or suggest better changes, let me know!
There will always be circumstances in which employees will choose to resign and leave immediately.

If you’re anything like me you’re likely in some state of confusion and uncertainty which, I would hazard to say, is a very good state from which to tackle diversity, not to mention leadership, complexity and change.

It’s not a big, fancy process. Mostly it’s intuitive. Mine is not a big business — hell, it’s hardly even small!

Just a quick reflection on the first days of the year, an affirmation of sorts. I notice I’ve taken on my reclusive role, usual for this time of year, not having left the house other to sit on the deck to read, drink, socialise, admire the beautiful nature-laden part of Auckland I am blessed to live in and/or reflect. It’s been a stressless, easy ride into 2015. May it continue.
