Who we are
I started Lightbulb in 2010 with the mission to reduce the painful bits we often have to live with when working for organisations and with other people! 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' things that were 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 new, better ways and in half the time. It’s about talking in plain-English, cutting out the annoying 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 technique at 9am the next day. A lot of our stuff isn't in textbooks but it's not 'gimmicky' either! Just great tools: Life At Work. Made Simple.
