Lives Lived: John Keith Macdonald, 70

John Keith Macdonald was born in the midst of the Second World War, the youngest of three children to John Macdonald and Lavinia Munford. His father, known only as “Daddy in the picture,” was away overseas, serving in the infantry and involved in liberating Holland, from where he sent home three pairs of wooden shoes. When he returned in 1946, the family moved to a small farm west of Montreal, where young John’s love of country life and animals was born.

The disconnect of the executive training programme

Tue, 2014-06-17 15:56

Many management and leadership development programmes take great satisfaction in the positive responses received from individual participants on the “smiley” sheets they hand out at the end of their course. And for the most part these programmes do make a good impression on that manager or leader who leaves the programme feeling full of great ideas about how they will change themselves and their organisations.
