What you must learn from COVID-19…

July 31st, 2020 Posted by Leadership Tools, Life Coaching, Performance Coaching 0 thoughts on “What you must learn from COVID-19…”

It has been interesting chatting with people over the last few weeks about how they really didn’t like the idea of working from home when we went into lockdown and now they don’t want to go back into the office – they prefer to work from home! The human psyche is very interesting, isn’t it? Initially when things change we push back against it, it causes stress, worry and concern. This is perfectly natural because, believe it or not, we’re designed (more…)

The C.O.D.E.S for getting through…

April 20th, 2020 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Leadership Tools, Performance Coaching 0 thoughts on “The C.O.D.E.S for getting through…”

I hope you and those close to you are safe and well. These are challenging times and they are certainly invoking a lot of different emotions for people. As a leader, all we can do is provide support to our teams and encourage them to make themselves the priority. If your experience is anything like my own, you probably jumped into the response to the pandemic with a sense of gusto and challenge; however, as the weeks (more…)

The little dots that make all the difference…

January 31st, 2020 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Leadership Tools, Life Coaching, Performance Coaching 0 thoughts on “The little dots that make all the difference…”

It’s the beginning of another year and of course I’m going to talk about goal setting. It’s such an important part of our personal and professional development, and is an absolute must in your leadership toolkit. How many of us set goals for the new year, start off with a hiss and roar but have nothing to show for our efforts a couple of months later. We’ve all been guilty of it because goal setting alone isn’t enough. (more…)

The Illusion of Intimacy

September 6th, 2019 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Leadership Tools 0 thoughts on “The Illusion of Intimacy”

I was giving a workshop on communication a few months ago and I shared that the only real way to build relationships was through face to face interactions. One of the participants absolutely stumped me when he vehemently disagreed and proclaimed that in his last role he worked from home and through email and social media formed some the best relationships of his life. I had to agree that the world is changing and that it is possible to form a relationship over the internet but (more…)

Why You Shouldn’t Treat Your Neighbour as Yourself

August 23rd, 2019 Posted by Life Coaching, Performance Coaching 0 thoughts on “Why You Shouldn’t Treat Your Neighbour as Yourself”

There is a famous quote from the bible, “You shall love your neighbour as yourself” (Mark 12:31) and while it sounds like a good idea, I don’t recommend it. I might be bringing upon myself the wrath of Christians everywhere but that’s not my intent. I understand the intention behind the statement and, in the perfect world…with the perfect person, it would be great advice. But it’s not a perfect world and I haven’t yet met the perfect person. Why I don’t recommend treating your neighbour as you would yourself (more…)

3 Reasons Why You Should Be Taking Smoking Breaks

March 9th, 2019 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Life Coaching, Performance Coaching 0 thoughts on “3 Reasons Why You Should Be Taking Smoking Breaks”

When I first arrived in New Zealand my boss was a relatively heavy smoker. It wasn’t unusual to find him outside dragging on a cigarette before coming back into the office to get back into his work. I often found myself joining him as we engaged in some conversation about an existing challenge we were facing into and although I never smoked, just the change of environment helped move the discussion along. After that brief five minutes outside we often came up with a solution or at least steps (more…)

The Fear That Keeps You Safe

October 25th, 2018 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Life Coaching, Performance Coaching, Uncategorised 0 thoughts on “The Fear That Keeps You Safe”

What if I was to tell you that you are not really who you think you are? It sounds like a line straight out of The Matrix, but for the majority of us, it’s true. It’s like a big secret that we carry around about ourselves and we think we’re the only one who knows it. The truth is, we all carry the same secret and we hope that no one else will ever discover it; it’s like a little game that everyone is playing, the person with the best poker face wins…or is the ultimate loser. You see, as human beings, we all share the same (more…)

Here’s Why You Should Consider Hiring a Coach

October 3rd, 2018 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Life Coaching, Performance Coaching, Uncategorised 0 thoughts on “Here’s Why You Should Consider Hiring a Coach”

Coaching is one of the fastest growing industries in the world! According to Forbes, eighty percent of directors would welcome coaching and, while not every CEO has a coach, one hundred percent of their bosses wish they had. While coaching in the US, the UK, and Australia is already a very well established practice, it is taking a little longer to become the “performance development tool” of choice here in New Zealand. Having said that, coaching is (more…)

Why your organisation is failing you

April 28th, 2018 Posted by Leadership Coaching, Life Coaching 0 thoughts on “Why your organisation is failing you”

I caught up with a good friend of mine, Jen, after work one evening and I was surprised to see she was on crutches. She rolled her ankle pretty badly during a netball game, which put her out for the season. This didn’t get her down though. Jen is always upbeat and looks for the good in every situation. She said that since she started using crutches everybody has been so helpful. “A guy literally ran across the road to help me get out of a taxi. Then he held the door to the entrance open and made sure I got through alright. With a quick (more…)

Are you living life as Schrodinger’s Cat?

January 26th, 2018 Posted by Life Coaching 0 thoughts on “Are you living life as Schrodinger’s Cat?”

Erwin Schrodinger was an Austrian Physicist and he devised the paradox known as Schrodinger’s Cat in 1935. Schrodinger said that if you put a cat in a box with a poison that might kill it, at the end of an hour the cat has a 50% chance of being alive, and a 50% chance of being dead. According to quantum mechanics, since we can’t see in the box to know if the cat is alive or dead, the cat is both alive and dead. Of course, we know that this is not possible; nothing can be alive and dead at the same time. However, I disagree. (more…)
