A More Balanced World.

I debated long and hard whether I would write anything about International Women’s Day this year. I do love IWD and what it represents and I am grateful to those who struggled so hard to achieve recognition for women and their contributions.  It’s thanks to them that women today enjoy the freedom that they have.

Leadership, Seasons and Certainty – What’s the Correlation?

I love summer. I love the smell of it, the bright sunny days, the sunsets, the warm breeze and how the blue sky seems to put a spring in your step. One of the benefits of living in Melbourne is we do get to experience four seasons, sometimes all in one day! We know our […]

Change Your Thinking, Change Your Outcome.

How will 2019 differ to your 2018? Most people want to get better year on year. They want to improve in a certain area, leverage what they have done well or embarked on a new challenge. Many want to spend their time much more wisely and stick to important priorities. And some just want this […]

Lessons from a Very Public Fiasco.

“Everything rises and falls on leadership”. John C Maxwell Organisations large and small can all take something away from the horrendous report into our cricketing organisation. Cricket Australia is again in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. The report into Cricket Australia’s culture and the Australian Cricket team culture reveals damning evidence of bullying, […]

Why Do You Do It That Way?

We’re often challenged and encouraged to understand the ‘why’ behind what we do. To understand and connect to the greater purpose of our actions so we can make strong decisions, push through challenges, stay aligned with the work we love and recognise the right opportunities for us.  It’s essential to communicating effectively and leading people […]

Making Sense of the Generations.

It’s likely you have a mix of Baby Boomers, Generation X and Millennials within your business (and you are one of those!). Each generation is defined by birth date, values and worldviews. This is impacted by whatever is going on around us at the time. In the case of the Millennial generation, it is the […]

Creating Two Types of Momentum.

We have flipped the calendar page over for the second last time in 2018. We’re now on the home stretch. I do love this time of year, it’s spring, daylight savings kicks in for many of us and there is a more festive feel in the air. That being said there are many distractions to […]

Do You Want to be Super Organised?

When you look through a job description one of the most common skills listed is strong organisation skills. But have you noticed how some people are incredibly organised? Despite the fact their demands are similar to yours – they have a demanding job, children to care for, a partner to love, their health to look […]

How Leaders Can Remain Relevant.

There is something that our culture of busy is negatively impacting on that we absolutely need to remain relevant in leadership and business. It’s a leadership soft skill that’s often overlooked for those that are more obvious and perhaps glamorous like charisma for example. But it’s the thing that leaders need to hone to attract […]

Unhealthy Games

There’s often competition amongst a team of people. Who can hit their KPI’s first, who can get the best feedback from their clients, who can get the attention of the CEO or who can move up the corporate ladder the quickest. There’s nothing wrong with a bit of healthy competition in a workplace right? What […]
