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 […]

Assumptions and Three Little Guys.

When I was walking along the street yesterday, I noticed three little guys in their school uniform. I would guess their ages to be between 9 and 6. Obviously, they were brothers walking to school.  One was bouncing his basketball and the other was holding hands with his brother who had down syndrome. As they […]

How You Communicate Matters.

I was engaged to work for a small business, with 30 team members, to improve communication within the business. Everyone knew there was a toxic culture in the workplace. People weren’t getting along and engagement levels were low. The leaders believed this had nothing to do with the leadership, but rather people not liking the […]

When You Can’t Work Any Harder….

Chances are going to relate to this story about Gary. Or know someone else around you who can. Gary’s story is a result of being caught in the busy trap, he became totally reactive and distracted. He lacked clarity, focus, and drive; and was running blind and hoping for the best. But what he decided […]

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.

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 […]

Same, Same and Certainly Not Different.

In today’s hyper-connected online world, we need to stand out. We need to attract attention, to be colourful and easily identifiable through masses of other information and noise out there. We can’t afford to fall into the world of ‘sameness’ that so many seem to. And there’s just so much sameness around right now. 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 […]
