Who we are - Why we do this
Performance Improvement and Employment Law Specialists
I started Lightbulb in 2010 because I wanted to challenge the traditional, textbook people and performance practices that don't work at work - and replace them with new, 'no-fluff' methods that make things painless!
I was that person who forced people through the traditional, bureaucratic nonsense that is annual appraisal. I can also claim to be a victim, many times over, of management training that could best be described as unmemorable, jargon-laden and full of 'ideal world' theories, clever words and advice that was difficult to apply to real-life.
-We're about sorting the people management bits easily and quickly as well as getting other work-stuff done in better ways and in half the time.
-It’s about being plain-speaking and cutting out the annoying, subjective corporate buzzwords and office-speak to ultimately make things simpler.
-Lightbulb approaches things in a non-textbook, practical, step-by-step way so that people can get going with a new way of working immediately.
New, original, practical, 'non-gimmicky' tools and techniques: Life At Work. Made Simple.
