Welcome to

After 33 years of unbroken publication, Cuttings ceased production in March 2023. Cuttings was a regular (bi-monthly) newsletter that is a collection of ideas and writings on individual, management and organisation development shared to further promote discussion. Published electronically, a pdf copy can be downloaded here to help you distribute copies or just if you prefer the printed format.

The Final Issue: Cuttings 165
  • Empowerment - a constant reminder to managers that getting out of the way makes for better results
  • Engagement - we didn’t always call it engagement, but it has been a theme for some time.
  • Employees - staff are people not resources and unless we treat them as such there can be no empowerment or engagement
  • Plus a collection of Snippets to further provoke your thinking and reflection, and details of Book Sales from our secure Online Shop
