    What to expect as you learn new skills.

      Do you find yourself taking on more than you can handle?  Have you ever agreed to a request only to regret it shortly after?  Are things sitting in your proverbial ‘in-tray’ that yo just never get too? If you’ve answered yes, you’re in the same boat as about 85% of the managers I’ve worked with. …

        A Dog’s Purpose

        Posted 19/09/2012 By in INSPIRATION, PURPOSE With | No Comments

        A Dog’s Purpose? (from a 6-year-old). A story I picked up while trawling the net.  I love the message, enjoy. Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker.  The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they …

          Being Elmo – a story about purpose

          Posted By in INSPIRATION, PURPOSE With | No Comments

          I watched a wonderful movie recently.  It’s called Being Elmo, the loveable Sesame St character and is about his puppeteer’s pursuit of his dream.  From an early age in the late 60′s Kevin Clash was hooked on puppets and dreamed of working with his idols on Sesame St.  The story is about more than just …

            • Our weaknesses ARE our strengths?

              Posted 13/09/2012 By in GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR PEOPLE With | No Comments

              I’ve often said that the other way around, that our strengths are our weaknesses.  Primarily because we tend to overuse our strengths but also because it’s somewhat polarised on the spectrum meaning we could be ignoring our blindspot. This past week I’ve been immersed in learning and growing and stretching my brain in a fantastic …

                  Posted 16/08/2012 By in GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR PEOPLE, MANAGEMENT With | No Comments

                  One of the things I see in the work I do with many Manager’s is the fear of ‘getting it wrong’.  It could be almost anything that I’m referring too.  Whether it’s a difficult discussion around performance or having all the answers to questions or organisational challenges the desire of many modern managers is to …

                    The tighter you squeeze, the more you lose. I coach or train managers to think of managing their people like they would a large chunk of clay.  In order to appropriately support their people they would need to hold that clay with open, supportive hands.  And yes, supporting their people IS a part of a …
