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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

When No One is Talking the Hard Stuff.

Have you ever been part of a team where one or a couple of people weren’t pulling their weight? They were getting away with things they shouldn’t be and you were left feeling very frustrated about it. Did you wonder where the feedback was? It was probably a situation where everyone was thinking about giving […]

Reflection Relevance

To literally stop and think when things are chaotic and going at a thousand miles an hour, can seem counterintuitive and even ridiculous! Who has time to do that? The more relevant question is “who can afford not to”? Reflection time is either accepted or not by people. Some see it as a waste of […]

What Really Matters.

We often we craft our lives around our business or career, rather than crafting our business or career around our lives and what is really important to us. This is evident from the high rates of depression and anxiety in Western society. We’re not happy and in part this is caused by doing things that […]
