Book launch 

Online eventsLeadership as Meaning Making is written by John Varney, founder of High Trenhouse Centre for management Creativity, with a foreword by Dr Meredith Belbin.  This book will be published by Routledge on 24 December 2020. It explores the metaphorical relationship between the hero’s journey through unknown worlds (after Joseph Campbell) and the evolutionary principle by which people mature as human beings. In doing so they participate in meaning-making leadership as a shared phenomenon. Read the review
