How to design a human-centred business and build and organisation where people want to work.


Did you get out of bed on a Monday morning and shout, “Woohoo, hell yeah. I’m going to work. I’m so excited!”


What if every person got up in the morning that excited to go to work and do something brilliant? Excited, energised and happy, bringing their A-game, solving problems, going the extra mile, hitting deadlines. How would that change your organisation? How would that transform the mood of the nation?


We can build businesses like this and it’s not that complicated. We just have to find passionate people to journey with, give them something to get excited about and cut them loose them to do brilliant work.


For too long now businesses have been this unemotional, functional entity where humans are just resources to be managed and made efficient. But we can’t be made efficient. We’re human and we’re emotional and irrational. We come to work, grumpy or sad or happy or frustrated or distracted or focussed or energised or all these things all in the same day.


If you want to build a future fit business that attracts and retains the top talent, you’re going need to think emotionally. You need to get emotional. You need to learn to harness these emotions to create a place for people to be people and do their best work.


This book will take you through THE CULTURE CANVAS, a framework that teaches you how to build a culture where people actually want to work and create an authentic, purpose-led company that clients love to talk about.


And the best part, when an organisation build a strong culture, they make more money too.


Company Culture


Had enough of politics and hidden agendas stopping your organisation achieve greatness? Do you want to stop your people complaining and create massively high performing teams? Do you want to have more time and spend less time managing your people?


Every organisation has a culture. Whether it’s explicitly articulated or organically develops over time, every organisation has a set of rules and values that influence and define the way people behave. It affects every part of your company, from the meetings to the decor, from the people you hire to the profits you make.



If you want running your team or your organisation to be easier with fewer politics and no hidden agendas then you need to get your culture in order and this book could just save your organisation!


How to stop fire fighting, get more free time and stop being a slave to your business.


So, you’re an entrepreneur. You’ve spent the last few years of your life building your business. You’ve sacrificed. Lots. You’ve poured your heart and soul into something you are proud of. Well done. You rock! You’ve created something other people look at and think wow! The trouble is you can’t enjoy it because you’re too busy. You want to run your business, not have your business run you.



Too Busy Company Culture
No More Fear Company Culture


Everyone has dreams, creativity, underused talent, unfulfilled potential beyond that which can be seen. You have life busting inside of you to get out. You have things on your heart to do, that you wish you had the time or resources to do. But you’re too busy. Or it’s not the right time. Or you sacred. What happens if you fail?


It’s time to end that fear. It’s time to dream big and act! It’s time to step up, step out and be the best YOU you can be.


We all have a passion and a purpose in life. You know, the work that we do that energises us; the things we can spend hours on and it feels like minutes; work that has us in the zone, in the flow, in our sweet spot. Work that we wish we could do forever. Our calling if you will. A riaison d’etre. Something that gets you out of bed with a spring in your step and a smile on your face!


Let’s do that every day! Let’s stopping dreaming and start living the dream!


Unfortunately, from a young age we are conditioned to constrain ourselves; to limit our dreams; to protect ourselves from failure; to confine our dreams to only that which we can see is possible. Our parents do it to protect us. The education system does it to conform us. Our friends do it so they don’t have to compare themselves to us, the world changers. From every side we are told to dream small, aim low, live the mediocre life. Well, I say no more!




Now is the time to cast off mediocrity. To dream big! To aim high! To step out, step up and be the very best you can be! This book is the catalyst! A manifesto for life.


This is an amazing experimental book, written in 1 hour by the members of ONLE Networking.


The COVID crisis has accelerated a process of human disconnection that was already moving at a frightening pace. Yet despite the many awful consequences of the pandemic and the resulting lockdowns, one positive is that this process may have begun reversing. This book – written by the members of ONLE Networking – is about taking control of your time, priorities and communication to ensure that you, your goals, purpose and relationships are more important than the business you run.
