nice to see you… to see you nice

In the editorial of the last edition I was warbling on about the potential ROI of just being nice – how, despite the widespread belief that diving in first and elbowing all and sundry out of the way as you clamber up the ladder of success is the only way to go, there can actually be fiscal returns to doing the right thing. And reaching out to those ascending behind or alongside of you to give them a helping hand can not only feel good, but can even benefit your bottom line.One of the unmistakeable take-outs of the interview we conducted with the cheery twosome over at Architects EAT for this issue’s cover story expands on this idea. The ever affable Albert Mo says, “I think we are a…

training and leadership skills the key

Most people who are moving into a business of their own find it a transition that is both exciting and terrifying in equal measure.

It ended…
