The Other End of the Telescope

”The Other End of the Telescope” is an internationally accredited CPD course.

Having been there, done that, Ian retired from mainstream corporate life in 2018 and wrote the bestselling, down to earth, business book: The Other End of the Telescope. In the book, Ian shines an irreverent but hard-hitting spotlight on the absurdities of getting things done in large business, examines the loneliness and tough realities of leadership and seeks to understand why we make our lives so difficult at work.

In this thought-provoking course, Ian Russell draws from more than 25 years’ experience of leading – as well as working – in large organisations around the world so that he can distil the key themes and challenges that confront big business today.

The course tackles fundamental topics such as:

  • Organisational cholesterol
  • The loneliness of leadership
  • Human capital strategy failures
  • Performance-destroying ‘head offices’. as well as
  • The ‘myths’ of talent scarcity and the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Each module of this course pairs a profound understanding of the real world and lessons which are learned the hard way together with prevailing and practical insights on how big business can alter the way in which it does what it does.

The contributions from other noteworthy thought leaders – such as Valter Adão, Richard Mulholland, Happy Ntshingila and Rapelang Rabana – contribute unique voices as well as insights to Ian’s vibrant and straightforward views that are expressed in this course.

These two thought patterns are exactly what is required to jolt companies as well as their leaders into doing things more successfully in addition to thoughtfully. The lightness with which Ian writes this course makes it highly readable. However, his tone does not dilute the impact of his keen observations and insights.

Passionate, irreverent as well as challenging, The Other End of the Telescope author-led course will make you think deeply about your business and your career, as well as your role in both.
