The art of door slamming: Compassionate care and leadership

The art of door slamming: Compassionate care and leadership
Description
I was collecting a parcel from a post office sorting office and watched a receptionist engaged in emotional labour.* She was signing four workmen in, all of whom were belligerent because they were unable to access the site through the most convenient entrance. Each expressed their frustration individually to the receptionist as they signed in, as well as collectively whilst waiting for their colleagues.

Blog: The LGC100: what it does and doesn't measure

Blog: The LGC100: what it does and doesn't measure
Description
Written by Chris Game. I used, years ago, to have a whole Pol Sci 1 lecture about power and influence, their similarities and differences. By one of life's synchronicities, I've been reminded of it twice in the past week. Don't go – I'm not about to disinter it, although I will share the six-word summary that I could, if really pushed, get it down to: Power's a tool, Influence a skill.
