Make It Easy for Your Clients to Buy From You.

So I bought a new car last week! It’s most exciting and something I have been thinking about for a while, and probably procrastinating about, as I had to test drive and sort out finance etc. All of which is time. Anyway, I finally got my act together and rallied a friend to come along […]

Do You Have a Family or a Team?

It’s not uncommon to hear people refer to their work colleagues as family, particularly in a small business. Leaders consider their team part of the family and I think now more than ever people are very much looking for a place to belong in this frantic world. However, is your team really a family in […]

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 […]

All Buts are on the Nose!

This week’s blog is a relatively simple one. The message is tapping on the shoulder of your self-awareness and how conscious you are of your ‘buts’ and it links back to last weeks message and the podcast that I released early in January. You could probably accuse me of eavesdropping on a conversation in a […]

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 […]

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 […]
