Another 2019 prediction! My prediction that we will see more women on boards is not a very ambitious prediction. The demand is there & there are plenty of great candidates out there. Many of those candidates, already with amazing resumes, have been building up specific and direct experience and education to support their nomination to a board. When a board has a seat to fill, finding a women wont be hard. Finding a qualified one will also be easy. If it matters to an organization it will be...

Big go bigger but small is majority in 2019 - A 2019 prediction At Amplify we knew this last prediction was coming and it’s one of the reasons we saw a business plan with potential. I wrote about the importance of small business in our economy before: https://www.amplifyadvisors.ca/2018/10/14/why-one-of-the-reasons/ The majority of businesses are small and medium in size, but as business-to-business entities get stronger and larger it becomes harder to serve SMEs.

Spent lots of time this week thinking & discussing curiosity as well as humility so when this article came to my inbox it was great timing. http://ow.ly/Hkjr30kDGMi It talks about an anti library of unread books to remind you how little you know but how much to know is possible. It talks about strategy to release the guilt of unfinished books and absorb more, more efficiently (I use many but still have held onto the guilt). I tell my kids reading is magic and I believe it – for happiness,...

Candor is a value & we connect when we use it. Candor is kind, it fosters connection by building trust and caring personally. Challenging directly encourages open dialogue and that is core to relationships. Candor isn’t about being direct, frank or rude. Those characteristics won’t help connection.

There’s other trends that have proven more urgent. Trends that...
