Adam creates his first hypnosis session inspired by the lyrics of a song - How to Save a Life by The Fray while also infusing a powerful metaphor created by the hypnotist Mike Mandel used in his keynote speech at Hypnothoughts Live in 2019. Adam heard the song, originally released in 2005, recently and the lyrics struck him as being melancholic and filled with regret but also with a positive intention to help. He researched that the writer and lead singer wrote the song after attempting to help a teenage drug addict. This session is designed to help those who are in the profession of helping others - people that often deal with regret and guilt for those they were unable to help.

Was the blockbuster Coinbase stock market listing a coming of age for bitcoin and cryptocurrency or a top of the bubble moment? The world’s leading crypto exchange platform listed on the US stock market this week and at one point hit a hefty $100billion valuation, before slipping back to $60billion. That’s still a very big number, especially for a business that made $322million last year. But Coinbase is profitable, its earnings are growing rapidly, it can cash in whether bitcoin and crypto prices rise or fall, and the cryptocurrency genie is well and truly out of the bottle. So, could it prove to be a Facebook or Google of the crypto world? Georgie Frost, Tanya Jefferies and Simon Lambert look at the Coinbase float and what it means for the crypto and investing world.

Research into workplace productivity and management practice is often focused on the links between ‘Good’ and ‘Efficient’ practices. ‘Good’ covers employee-friendly policies; for instance, those providing opportunities for better Work Life Balance. In contrast, ‘Efficient’ practice includes the use of KPIs, setting clear performance expectations and tackling underperformance where it is identified.

The operational reality is that managers hold a position between the interests of their organisation and those who work for them – how do they balance the (often competing) need to create both efficient and good workplaces?
