Tom Collins, NZSBA's 2018 Scholarship recipient: His experiences in Sweden
Hej! I’m Tom and I was awarded the Hans and Pat Björklund Scholarship for studies in Scandinavia last year. Since being awarded the scholarship I have moved to Sweden and started a two-year master’s programme in Global Studies at Lund University. The course has been fantastic so far. We have mostly been focusing on how the process of globalization, with all its various political, social and economic factors, has impacted millions of people around the world. For example, in one essay I looked at how globalization, particularly through social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, has created an identity crisis for many young people.

Harvard Business Review March/April summary by Frank Olsson
This is the second HBR issue of the year. There are a couple of very interesting articles in there about leadership training, performance management, leading a professional firm, and mid-life crisis. I found the article “The Feedback Fallacy” especially insightful as what it says is so obvious and not well understood or practiced by most organizations. Please find below a few notes from this HBR issue.
