The end of competitive advantage; getting out of your own way; final public workshop of the year | New at Predictable Success 

I’ve spent most of my life – certainly since my late teens – in the shadow of another Les McKeown.
The OTHER Les McKeown As the lead singer of once-popular tartan teen sensations the Bay City Rollers, the other Les McKeown has undoubtedly lead a more exotic life than mine.
But as we share an unusual name and are roughly the same age, our trails get intertwined at times (remind me to tell you the story of my 6-week enforced stay in Vancouver as a result of mistaken identity – and someday I should print a few of the emails I get from women of a certain age…).
Usually the confusion goes only one way, so it was quite charming when Inc magazine decided that the other Les was now a business growth expert. (See the image above, now replaced.) Ahh… it’s the small things in life that give the most pleasure…
Below the fold, our last public workshop of the year; final call if you’re interested in becoming a Predictable Success Licensed Practitioner; a new interview with the wonderful Rita McGrath, and three ways you just might be shooting yourself in the foot…
More later!
