Join The Corporate Rebels Book Tour Of The Netherlands
After successfully launching in London, it's now time for 'launch week' at home in The Netherlands. Join us for celebrations, talks, and promotion activities.
In the first month since publication
It’s been amazing...the book has featured in (among others) Forbes, LSE Business Review, and Intermediair. There were two launch events in London. Thousands around the globe have purchased copies—from Australia to Mexico and Brazil, and from India to the US and Europe. Reviews have been nothing but positive.
We have signed (or are about to) with publishers for versions in German, French, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Italian, and Chinese.
In short: more than we could have wished for.
The Dutch book tour
In just over 3 weeks - on 31 March 2020 - the Corporate Rebels book will be published in our native language: Dutch, and available at all major book stores and online outlets.
- If you can't wait, pre-order here. It will be delivered on publication date.
- For the English version, use this link to purchase directly.
Publication announcement for the English book was mostly online. But for the Dutch book we've added significant offline activity. Commencing Tuesday 31 March, we will drive the mobile office through The Netherlands for four days.
The tour will be full on. Each day we will host public talks, in-company events, and other activities (some of which remain secret for now ?).

We ask for your support. Can you connect us to local or national media outlets like newspapers, magazines, TV and radio shows, podcasts, bloggers, or vloggers? If so, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We recently held a brainstorming session at our office for the newest on-demand course for the Academy—one about the concept of Psychological Safety. During the session, we discussed how one of the things you can do to create psychological safety is to embrace failure instead of avoiding it. But this is hard because failing is not fun. It absolutely sucks. Therefore, it is better not to celebrate the failure itself but rather celebrate the lessons learned from it.
How many times have you heard of companies coaching candidates for ‘senior teams’, ‘top talent’ and ‘future leaders? That is, the ‘special ones’ who are worth coaching attention! Sure, there will be talent brewing who, with good coaching, will go from ‘potentially great’ to ‘actually great’. And some brilliant coaches do great work with senior teams. However, does a ‘coaching for senior leaders’ paradigm pass scrutiny, given how organisations are changing? Or is the potential of other staff hamstrung by a short-sighted view of who is worth investing in?
So, we write a monthly column for MT/Sprout, a Dutch media platform. Last month, we wrote about how our agendas are always packed full with meetings. We followed that with this month's column about how replacing all these meetings with e-mail is not a good alternative. Why? Because there is a big chance you will waste even more time and money. Allow me to explain.
