    When was the last time you lost yourself in your work?

    Posted 16/09/2013 By in EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT, INSPIRATION With | No Comments

    Is FLOW linked to engagement at work?  Do people working at their peak enjoy it more? When was the last time you lost yourself and became totally absorbed by your work?  Check out the clip of a drummer just doing his thing.  I bet he can play for hours without pause.  When was the last …

    How Effective are you as a Leader?

    Posted 12/09/2013 By in LEADERSHIP With | No Comments

    When was the last time you got some feedback about your performance? As a Management Coach I have witnessed literally hundreds of managers bend over backwards, at great personal sacrifice to do or provide something for their teams only to see it be completely ineffective and unappreciated.  It’s perhaps one of the most frustrating and if you’re …

    Is your organisation undergoing change?

    Posted By in CHANGE MANAGEMENT, LEADERSHIP, MANAGEMENT With | No Comments

    There is so much change going on in all sphere’s of our lives these days and quite frankly it’s a little overwhelming. You hear the term ‘change fatigue’ thrown around continuously these days.  I’m sure it wasn’t even a term 10 years ago.  There are a couple of factors that I think are contributing to this fatigue …

  • Is this the worlds best CEO?

    Posted 16/07/2013 By in INSPIRATION, LEADERSHIP With | No Comments

    The CEO of Japan Airlines, in the World Top Ten for international airlines is perhaps one of the most humble and (in my opinion) exemplary CEO’s of the modern era.  Haruka Nishimatsu is a leader who is modelling the behaviour he expects from his employees.  This is a critical leadership action and one in which …

  • The transition from team mate to team leader – why so many get it wrong.

    The transition from team mate to team leader – why so many get it wrong.

    Posted 30/04/2013 By in MANAGEMENT With | No Comments

    The first thing I want to say about this particular transition is that it’s difficult…  perhaps even the most difficult entree into Management you can experience (and also one of the most common). Why is it so hard?  Why do so many mess it up and alienate their former team-mates?  Why do so many new managers attempt …

    Transformational Leaders – the time is NOW.

    Posted 26/04/2013 By in CHANGE MANAGEMENT, LEADERSHIP With | No Comments

    Transformational Leaders – the time is NOW. Organisations and teams are grappling with ever increasing complexity, rates and scales of change, ongoing ambiguity and economic uncertainty.  Teams are overloaded, managers are frazzled, people are fearful and organisations are battening down the hatches and reducing spending and overheads.  It’s a difficult climate right now and people and their …

    It’s coaching, but not as you know it.

    Posted By in MANAGEMENT With | No Comments

    I’ve been delivering coaching services in a variety of forms for the past 7 or 8 years and I’ve got a dirty little secret. My first foray into coaching was the (then) newly emerging Life Coaching arena.  I was taught good process and met some fantastic people.  After my first few attempts at ‘Life Coaching’ …

    Another example of a person who has followed their passion, despite set-back and doubts, in order to achieve something truly amazing. Ok, so it’s just a YoYo but wow, what a performance!!

  • What Teams Need

    Posted 16/04/2013 By in LEADERSHIP, MANAGEMENT, TEAM BUILDING With | No Comments

    Do you know what your teams need from you?  It’s pretty simple really.   Purpose – a clear understanding of why they’re actually a team. Priorities – there’s always too much to do, make sure your teams know which things matter most. Roles – yep, just like a football team has players performing different roles …

    Team Development – even more essential in difficult times

    Posted 09/04/2013 By in EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT, GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR PEOPLE, LEADERSHIP With | No Comments

    Team-Development – even more essential in difficult times. I believe it’s more essential for several reasons. In difficult times the team needs it more.  Under pressure the cracks appear (or get bigger). You get a greater return on your investment. Often costs less to do. Sends a crystal clear message that your people matter to …
