Peter Cook is a management consultant who uses his three passions of business, music and science to engage his audiences at corporate events and conferences.
1. Bad Romance – Lady Gaga – If you’re having trouble in a work relationship, change what you’re doing rather than continue banging your head against the same old brick wall.
2. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For – U2 – Everyone in HR and the business needs to keep on learning and be on the look-out for new things. If you stop looking and learning, the danger is that you could disappear from view.
3. Like a Virgin – Madonna – To succeed in HR and business, treat each day like it’s the first time. Complacency is a killer.
4. Love Will Tear Us Apart – Joy Division – Love and hate are useful emotions at work as both produce energy and passion. Apathy is a killer, however, since it stifles action. This is probably the reason that Joy Division did not call their song “Apathy will tear us apart.”
