What’s the one thing that is more powerful than training?

April 30th, 2022 Posted by Life Coaching, Performance Coaching 0 thoughts on “What’s the one thing that is more powerful than training?”

I was only ever pretty average at school. The best grade I got was a ‘B’ and I only got it once. Needless to say the world of academia wasn’t for me. I was more into sports and training at the time so it was off to fitness and leisure management for me. What was really interesting is that I soon propelled myself to the top of the class. (more…)

How Can You Put Psychological Safety Into Action?

March 29th, 2022 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Leadership Tools, Performance Coaching 0 thoughts on “How Can You Put Psychological Safety Into Action?”

Have you ever been brushed off, ignored, demeaned, silenced, or humiliated? These painful and memorable experiences trigger the self-censoring instinct that is within us all and effectively neutralises performance. When social friction exists in a team the predictable approach to our work is one of caution, preventing people from bringing their whole self to work. (more…)

Let’s talk about disappointment

February 28th, 2022 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Leadership Tools, Life Coaching 0 thoughts on “Let’s talk about disappointment”

The scene was set and the conditions were perfect. I woke up at 5am and went through my morning routine to prepare for the day ahead. My clothing for the morning was all laid out the night before and I filled my bag with water bottles and nutrition. My girls wandered around the rented accommodation sleepily as they got themselves ready. At the transition area I completed the set up with my bike and made my way to the swim start. There was the usual mix of nerves made easier by the friendly banter of the other athletes milling around. And then, before I knew it the Tauranga Half Ironman was underway! (more…)

Who are you… becoming?

January 20th, 2022 Posted by Leadership Tools, Life Coaching, Performance Coaching 0 thoughts on “Who are you… becoming?”

Welcome to 2022! What a year it’s been! Indeed, the great thing about a new year is that it gives us the energy, the determination and the focus to do something new. Unfortunately, most of us, by the end of the month, will already have lost our will to continue with the changes we so fervently committed to only a few weeks before. We’re funny ol’ creatures, aren’t we?

The question in the title is a big one. Mostly we’re asked the question, who are you? (more…)

Eating my own dogfood…

February 28th, 2021 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Leadership Tools, Life Coaching 0 thoughts on “Eating my own dogfood…”

We’re 2 months into the new year and if you’re like most it probably feels like the break over Christmas is a distant memory. I’ve fallen into a familiar trap over the last couple of weeks and now it’s time for me to eat my own dog food. I’ve been going at quite the pace and treating my days and weeks as if I was running a marathon like a sprint. The problem with that of course is that it can be exhausting and my energy levels never really get a (more…)

What I Learned About Myself by Building a French Drain…

January 29th, 2021 Posted by Life Coaching, Performance Coaching 0 thoughts on “What I Learned About Myself by Building a French Drain…”

Happy New Year!!! Over the holidays I spent a few days building a French Drain. We bought our house about nine years ago and the back garden has never been right. Because of the position of our neighbours property and the slope of the ground, when it rained, we always ended up with a completely waterlogged back garden. Well after nine years I decided to do something about it. (more…)

Thinking about your past to create your future…

November 30th, 2020 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Life Coaching, Performance Coaching 0 thoughts on “Thinking about your past to create your future…”

Towards the end of the year I always find my mind wandering back to the year gone by. I look back on those things that have gone well, the things I’ve accomplished – how have I moved my life and career forward? – who have I connected with, and what could I learn from or do better?

I find this exercise invaluable because (more…)

‘What not to do’ lessons from Judith Collins…

October 27th, 2020 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Leadership Tools 0 thoughts on “‘What not to do’ lessons from Judith Collins…”

“When in a business setting always stay away from discussing religion and politics.” That’s the advice I got many years ago from an old leadership mentor of mine and it’s advice I pass onto my clients as well. It makes a lot of sense because these two subjects can often come packaged with emotion and the potential for divisiveness. However, how the National party faced into the election this year is ripe with so many lessons that we, as leaders, need to learn from it. (more…)

The Real Test of Leadership, Would You Pass?

“The most important thing about leadership is your character and the values that guide your life.” ~ Brenda Barnes

The above quote really sums up what leadership is to me because a title alone does not make you a leader. A person can have a title and people can report into them (more…)

Are you a “management by mood” manager?

August 20th, 2020 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Leadership Tools 0 thoughts on “Are you a “management by mood” manager?”

I started off my working life as a fitness instructor and breaking into IT was quite a challenge. As you can imagine I took every opportunity that presented itself. I started off working in a credit card software company (a start up/stay up) that had a great buzz about it. It wasn’t long before I was moved to a software development team and then that great buzz turned into an annoying din! My new boss had a unique management style… (more…)
