Thanks for taking the time to explore this newsletter. We have focused on topics which have been of importance in our work in the past few months. There is some interesting and exciting data from the neuroscience world around the impacts of multitasking. We explore some of the latest findings on what makes great family businesses and finally we have provided a review of the book: Boot Camp Therapy which is a fascinating read.
Take the time to review these short articles/reviews and we hope you enjoy.
Our best regards

MIND FULL OR MINDFUL?
It is a well-established fact that dividing attention when attempting to learn something new, has a negative impact on long term ability to retain what is being learnt.
Further, many studies have shown that switching between just two tasks can add substantially to our cognitive load, impeding our thinking and increasing the likelihood that we’ll overlook or misinterpret important information.
MANAGING TALENT IN A FAMILY BUSINESS
Family businesses are an important part of the world’s economy and the backbone of the economic systems in most countries. They comprise more than 60% of all companies in Europe and the Americas and 70% in Australia.
Boston Consulting Group (BCG) research found that companies with the strongest leadership and talent-management capabilities increase their revenues 2.2 times faster and their profits 1.5 times faster than talent laggards. In this article we share some of these findings with you.
BOOK REVIEW: BOOT CAMP THERAPY
by Robert Taibbi
You may be excused for thinking “this book doesn’t apply to me: I don’t fit the clinical category!!” Well, you will be surprised. The tools covered in this book are useful in all walks of life – not just for a psychologist’s consulting room.
In today’s world, people want quick payback – and if this is not forthcoming, then they quit. Bootcamp Therapy developed in part to cope with the realities of the modern world, however there was also an emerging body of work that suggested that with the right approach, rapid therapy had good payoffs.
