Cookies are small data files stored on a computer and used to improve the user experience. Typical uses include: enabling a service to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one visit; recognising when you are logged in so you don't need to log in again for every page you visit; measuring the usage of website resources to ensure enough capacity is available; and analysing usage data to understand how to improve site content and performance.
This site uses the following types of cookie:
Session cookies which remember you for the length of a visit to the site so you don't have to enter the same details on every page repeatedly.
Analytics cookies which track anonymous site usage statistics so I can improve the site over time. I sometimes use online advertising services such as Google Adwords and Facebook Advertising which also issue and track cookies.
Settings cookies which remember your preferences and save you having to re-enter the same information again and again. Social sharing of my site content via Facebook and Twitter also uses similar cookies to remember preferences.
Access cookies which control appropriate access to freely-available or subscriber-only resources.
We occasionally use remarketing services provided by Google and Facebook. These services employ their own cookies (including tags and pixels) to allow them to present adverts that they think will be of interest to users. Both have policies on how they use any such data: Google’s policy is here and Facebook’s policy is here.

Disclosure Policy Last Updated 25 September 2017
THIS POLICY FORMS PART OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE OF THIS SITE.
On this site I write articles and produce audio and video content about braking friction and how you can stop driving with the brakes on in your organisations, teams and working relationships.
Unless otherwise noted, the material on this site is my own original work, although it may well have been inspired by a combination of working with, the publications of, and conversations with others.
After 30 years of helping organisations throughout Europe, Asia and the US, it’s not always easy to separate out (or even remember) who contributed what, when or where. But I aim to do my best to reference the contributions of others wherever possible.
I rarely review or endorse others or their products and services. Where I do so it will be based on my own personal perspective and experience. When I provide a link to a book or other product on this site I may receive a commission on any subsequent sales. My professional reputation is of prime importance to me, so any review will be independent of any commission I might make.
I am occasionally provided with free copies of books or other materials to review. This does not guarantee a positive review, or in fact any review. I don’t manage to read all the books I buy myself, so if I do read any unsolicited material it probably won't happen anytime soon.
I do not accept advertisements on the site and have no plans to do so.
Sometimes I will promote writers, thought-leaders or professional service providers and may receive a commission on purchases of their products or services. I will clearly identify when I have been offered any such commission. I only recommend things that I personally believe in, but always advise potential buyers to do their own due diligence. I am well aware that “one person’s meat is another person’s poison” (speaking as a vegetarian).
If you have any questions about this policy or anything else on this site, please don’t hesitate to contact me via the contact page. I’ll be happy to talk about any concerns you might have.
