How to cultivate a sense of curiosity – and why we should

As we head into a new year, the Lemonade Hub team has set itself a collective intention for 2019 – embracing a sense of curiosity. Albert Einstein famously (and profoundly, if you break down the message) noted: “I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious.” We think the brilliant physicist wished to explain …

The courage to rest and play

In many, in fact, in most societies those who work hard are lauded and looked up to. Perseverance, passion and commitment of any kind are indeed noble qualities. The pursuit of excellence and achievement sound, in theory, like something we should all aspire to. But unrealistic and improperly managed expectations can also lead to the …

Quality time: a concept due for a reboot (like us)

Quality time. It’s a term much bandied about and one that’s often misinterpreted. All with noble intent, of course. For working professionals there’s a lot of pressure to spend “quality time” with loved ones whom we may feel (correctly or incorrectly) we have neglected all year – parents, spouses, partners, close friends or children.   …

This Women’s Day, let’s lean in, reach left and embrace right

Let’s accept something about ourselves and others: Each and every one of us has been conditioned to accept a certain version of a socially constructed narrative titled: “The way things should be.” We believe in that narrative with our hearts and minds. It’s a story we’ve been building since we entered a certain world. Some …

How to lead and why we should all know how to

The advent of global digitisation means we often don’t work in the same office space, building or even city as some of our closest colleagues any more. Instead, our relationship with them is driven by communication platforms such as Skype, Teamviewer or even project management dashboards like Asana. Software like AnyDesk enable us to access …

Do you have a thinking partner? Do you need one?

We all get into situations where we struggle to see the wood for the trees. We don’t have a clear perspective on what may be a sticky problem, or perhaps we just cannot find the impetus to change a certain dynamic that tends to repeat itself. We’re simply too involved and immersed in our situation …

Are you fluent in the right language/s?

In this fascinating article, American college student Timothy Doner explains why (and how) he set about learning 20 different tongues over the course of seven years. Doner is widely referred to in the media as “the world’s youngest hyperpolyglot” – a speaker of many languages. Written in 2015, when the author was just twenty, Doner …

Lazy language, sloppy service?

Do correct spelling and grammar (still) matter? Is it bad to mix your metaphors like an old dog learning new tricks while trying to reinvent the wheel to show you weren’t born yesterday? After all, people who seem pedantic about language are generally not that popular. We all like to joke about and roll our …

The perks of listening

How concentration and consideration can transform the way we do business  These days we all have shorter spans of attention, and often also shorter fuses. Gone are the days of sitting quietly in a sun-filled atelier, listening reverently to a novel (comprised of polysyllabic-strewn, fifty-word sentences) read aloud for an hour or two. Mr Charles …
