Hi and welcome. Nice to see you.

My name is Rob Lambert and I passionately believe in cultivating great places to work that nurture talented and effective employees.

I also believe that developing the superpower of effective communication is one of the greatest things we can do to build workplaces that enrich the lives of all who work in them. It’s why I created the award winning Communication Super Power Workshop.

In the Cultivated Management newsletter, I share ideas and advice about speaking effectively, writing clearly, thinking critically and expressing your creativity through effective communication.

Effective communication requires diversity, critical thinking, truth, authenticity, clarity and purpose.

Three Mails

I have published a weekly newsletter for around 5 years now. In the last year I have expanded the newsletter to include three weekly emails (you can choose which ones you'd like to receive by hitting unsubscribe or managing your subscription in the substack app)

  • The weekly Cultivated Management newsletter - all about developing the super power of effective communication to enhance your career, cultivate amazing workplaces and release business agility.

  • Here's an idea worth playing with is a short audio show published on a Sunday. They are around 1-5 minutes in length where I share a short idea that I believe is worth playing with.

  • A Cultivated Life (which maps to my YouTube channel) is all about being a "creative soul in a corporate role". I share things I've made (that are work related), why I created them and sometimes, how I created them. It's a place where I hope to inspire other “creative souls in corporate roles” to keep their creative dream alive and balance this tension with work.

    • As an example, I have a new book coming out supported with a series of posters/artwork. I will share these here.

    • I also have a new series called #Meetingnotes in which I create various pieces of art related to work ideas.

    • I also have a couple of photo essays, and ideas on how to weave creativity into your work.

Once you subscribe you can manage which of the three emails you receive. All, or none, or a mix.
