The Neo-Generalist is both specialist and generalist, often able to master multiple disciplines.

We all carry within us the potential to specialise and generalise.  Many of us are unwittingly eclectic, innately curious. There is a continuum between the extremes of specialism and generalism, a spectrum of possibilities. Where we stand on that continuum at a given point in time is governed by context.

LID Radio: Kelly Odell - Why being human in business is so important

This week's LID Radio podcast is with Kelly Odell, who spoke with us ahead of his new title, The Human Way: The Ten Commandments for (Im)Perfect Leaders launching later this month.

In this podcast he speaks about how we sometimes repress our human traits, in the quest for good leadership, but how this can ultimately limit our interaction with others and our career. 
Tug Life gets a makeover!

What's your Minifesto? Our latest competition

This August, we are launching our “What’s your Minifesto?” competition to celebrate the release of Magnus Lindkvist’s new book Minifesto: Why small ideas matter in the world of grand narratives.

In Minifesto, Lindkvist illustrates how the world changes when an individual has the smallest of ideas.

So we’re asking you to share your very own Minifesto with us. In 300 words or less, tell us one small thing you’ve already done, or a completely new idea which might just make the world of difference.

The winner will donate a speech delivered by Magnus to a charity of their choice, as well as receiving a signed copy of the book - runners up will also get their hands on a signed copy!

For inspiration, Magnus has sent us his own Minifesto. Check back throughout the month for more from the LID team. Further info can be found here.

Post your Minifestos on our Facebook: @lidpublishing, or tag us in a post on LinkedIn.
Deadline: 25th August.  Good luck!
