Learning to slow down

I’ve been lying in a hospital bed for almost a week now, unexpected, unscheduled, and ‘resting in a bed for a week, Me? What! I don’t have the time or back-up.  I have a business to run, a family to feed, commitments - (Oh I’m big in holding on to those).  I have my daily fitness regime and all my social media get through, NO WAY!’

I was given…

WHY FEAR BASED MANAGEMENT DOESN’T WORK

I see it too many times as I stand in front of those people I am privileged to train. “We are often hauled over the coals by our bosses and it’s causing undue stress.” Maybe in some distant past managers might have thought that a fear based approach was a sure way to motivate employees. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Here’s a…

RISING STARS OF A NEW GENERATION

We are living in a new era, where the rising stars in companies are millennials. They are fast becoming a new generation of thinkers, leaders and they are ready to change the world. How these bright new minds think and learn is a whole new language. I find it more and more in my training workshops when I engage with a bright group of men and women.

ARE ASSUMPTIONS CREATING YOUR FAULTY ACTIONS?

At some point we are guilty of making assumptions.  You know the moment you make your mind up about someone or some decision and decide it’s the truth. Only later do you find out you’ve made a poor choice. Isn’t it time to notice when you change your behaviour around certain people because you’ve made an assumption about them. Good…

The Triangle of Power
