No I in TEAM

Having recently joined a new soccer team, have really surprised myself with how calm I have felt. Often when we’re in a new ‘team’ environment, we’ll have this overwhelming urge and desire (sometimes conscious / sometimes unconscious) to prove ourselves. And we’ll find ways of ‘proving’ ourselves. It plays out in various ways… on the…

Big Brave Tall Strong

Have you ever experienced “Petrification”? It’s a feeling. The feeling of being so petrified, it’s like a bubbling, overwhelming sensation that comes up, rushing through your body in some way shape or form. Was talking about it with a client today. She brought in the draft of her new book. It looks sensational. And boy…

Stop spinning in Circles

Growing up, I had the voice of my father in the back of my mind. “If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well”. Great motto for getting things done WELL. I’ve ploughed along my whole life getting stuff done. Giving it my all to do it WELL. He was a bit of a perfectionist…

Do you Bark, Bite or need some Roar?

  Today a client was talking about the toughest part of her job being having to deal with all the politics and personalities, the people stuff hey! And they say you should never work with children or animals. After coaching 5 year olds through the soccer season this winter, it has been a breeze compared…

No Pain no Gain

It’s an old adage, that has been around for ever, and it is important. There are no shortcuts, no magic pills or such thing as overnight success. Those who want the easy route or to take the express train, for those that expect to be able to jump the queue and arrive at their ‘destination’…

The Beauty in Life

Feel like you’re always rushing for the finish? Too often we’re so focused on the end goal, the finish line, we forget to savour and enjoy the journey. The highs, the lows, the peaks and troughs. When we actively take a look at this, we can see it’s where the richness and growth exist. The…
