You Can Lead a Horse to Water.

Have you ever had a situation where you can see the potential in someone? Whether that be sporting, academic, creative, leadership or even confidence; you can see it in the person well before they recognise it. So you work with them, provide opportunities for them to step up, you coach and encourage them, invest time […]

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 […]

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 […]

Avoiding the Weeds Whilst Working From Home.

I had an amusing conversation with a client the other day. She was telling me how she wanted to work from home more but is worried about the impact on her productivity because she gets very distracted. She went on to tell me about a time when she was studying. She was at her desk […]

Captain Courageous.

Aristotle called courage the first virtue because it makes all of the other virtues possible. It’s one of the most important virtues you can have as a leader in today’s business world. Think about the expectations of leaders today. You must be able to innovate, ideate, collaborate and constantly disrupt how you are thinking. All […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bringing Sexy Back to Process.

When you say the word process, when you think process, when you do process, you often think ‘boring’. Process has no pizzazz to it. It can be a bit like groundhog day doing the series of steps to get you to an end goal that is ultimately what a process is. It’s a little bland especially when […]
