67: Relationships, FT, ILR

Hello there, friends!

Don't panic. It is only Tuesday.

For those that have been around here awhile, you know I've been sending weekly letters each Thursday, but in my last letter, I said I'm gonna change up the cadence.

So here it is.

Autumn has certainly arrived here in London and we're settling into a new rhythm, as the days shorten and the temperature drops.

Even as the natural world begins to slow down, it feels like I am having to speed up. Q4 tends to be action-packed in the L&D world, and I've been facilitating and teaching at full capacity.

In the midst of all of this, I wanted to share a few updates from life and business on my end.

As always, don't hesitate to hit "reply" and let me know what's happening with you.

Financial Times


I was quoted in an FT article about "How to adapt your leadership to a multigenerational workplace."

The article is paywalled so you can find a Google Drive link to the .pdf here for those curious enough to read, but not enough to subscribe.

This is the first time I've been featured in a major publication, so we were celebrating all week.

I want to send a special note of gratitude to my friend and former colleague Sarah Drinkwater (@sarahdrinkwater) for thinking of me for this piece. Thank you, Sarah!

Relationship Meetings


Last year, I wrote a newsletter about a ritual that Claire and I have adopted called our Relationship Meeting.

We decided this would be a fun topic to tackle in our first video *together* so we're excited to share it with you!

If you're more of a reader than a watcher, I've written up a blog post just for you: Relationship Meetings.

Indefinite Leave to Remain


Many of you know I'm originally from the US but have been living in the UK for over five years now.

I recently hit a major milestone, passing my "Life in the UK" test and gaining approval for a new visa status termed, "Indefinite Leave to Remain", or ILR for short.

This is one step away from citizenship, which is crazy as I never expected to stay in London this long.

I've learned so much living in this wonderful city and country, and I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend living abroad to any of my fellow Americans who are considering it.

I might write a couple posts about how I managed to get a job abroad, what visa options are available, and try to answer some FAQs I get from time to time. If you'd want to read that, please let me know as it will serve as a little nudge of motivation.
