Managing the Whelm

How good are you at doing the ‘Whelm’? My client Sally has been great at it lately. It’s the feeling when it’s all too much, when the to-do list has gotten so big, it’s beyond unmanageable. We call it the Whelm. It starts to take over everything and impacts sleep, focus, energy and productivity. Think…

Focus is a Super Power

Do you have this superpower at your fingertips? Ever have days when you wish you could shut the door, turn off all the surrounding noise, people, and commitments, and REALLY focus? I can. It’s one of my superpowers. One I use a LOT. Here’s why. I get stuff done when I’m super focused. It’s faster…

Team Culture under Pressure

  Rain, rain, go away and come again another day! Depending on where you are in the world, you may or may not have experienced, yet again another ‘rain’ event. It’s testing our metal here in Sydney, as everything is very wet and very soggy. This morning despite the torrential downpour, girls and parents hit…

Workshopping the 3P’s

How often do you get the team together? Are the meetings always operational or do you get a chance to be strategic? Do you focus on the product (or service), process, or spend time talking to people. I love using the 3 P’s technique. Product, Process, and People Often many businesses get caught up or…

Two Great Fundamentals in Business

There are two absolutely fundamental requirements that I LOVE and ADORE in business. Both the Customer Journey and the Employee Experience. Both go hand in hand for ensuring engagement, retention, productivity and satisfaction. They’re also terrific for at the very least identifying the gaps and opportunities, which may still be a work-in-progress (possibly constantly) or…

Nature or Nurture

There is nothing like school holidays and the juggle of working life and motherhood to test one’s mental. It’s when I’m both at my best and my worst. All of my best traits can shine through and all of my worst too. And by worst I mean ugly. When I’m stressed, I get mean, snappy,…

Reflecting on the Quarter

It’s hard to believe that we’re about to finish Quarter 1 for 2022. How fast has that flown! Well it was fast here. Between juggling school holidays, weeks of rain and then Covid, feels like we’ve barely got the year started, then an office neighbour and I were laughing this morning about Ground Hog Day…

For or Against

Best session ever with a client today. Reflecting on the growth, learnings and improvements made across the last 7 months. As well as a great summary document, we could see the data measuring the growth and momentum achieved. Do you ever stop and take stop of where you’re at and how far you’ve come as…

Planning for Success

Anyone else love this time of year and getting the planning tools out and into action? Whilst most of us have best intentions of doing it at the end of the year in preparation for the new year, you’re certainly not alone, if you haven’t got the plan for ’22 all sorted yet. Particular as…

Limping or Limboing

Limping or Limboing? Wrapping up 2021

So it’s a funny time of year, some businesses amping up for the festive season, some industries work through and others begin the wind down where everything stops and everyone takes a break. Some of us are feeling smashed and exhausted after a huge 12 months, others revitalised and refreshed…and some of us, probably not…

Sharing the Big Wins

One of my fave things ever about being a coach, is cheering on the sidelines and watching the big wins. Seeing clients overcome challenges, dig deep, make progress, 3 steps forward and 5 steps back some days, then reap the rewards as the hard work, dedication and persistence pays off. It takes time. It’s not…

Retaining, Training or Harnessing Talent

There are a lot of conversations about the mass resignation happening in the US. Will Australia face it too? Has it started already? Some businesses and industries are struggling to find people and fill roles. Some businesses are slicing and dicing to be leaner and meaner than ever before, regardless of longevity, loyalty and commitment…

Going Back to Basics

A recent learning to share. We got a dog through Covid and I’ve hurt my shoulder/arm with excessive ball/stick throwing. 🙁 Not something I’d have thought would be an issue, however exacerbated with all the mouse and repetitive tech usage, sitting at a computer. So yes a pain, discomfort, however like with everything, there is…

Do you have a PQ Powered Culture?

Did you know only 20% of teams ever achieve 80% of their potential? Is your team one of the 20% of High Performers or one of the 80% that achieve less? A bit less or perhaps a lot less. Many business leaders share their numbers with us. How well the business is doing (or not).…

Know when to Stop and Take Stock

How often do you stop and take stock with how you, the team and business are tracking? In the last 18 months with so much going on, it’s been pretty easy to get VERY caught up in the day to day. Dealing with the urgent priorities. We get very used to that pattern of behaviour…

Whether it’s around health, finance, relationships, leadership… etc. Our micro habits can make or break the way in which we are able to thrive.

Avoidance is doing Immense Damage

So the irony of this blog, is it sat in my DRAFT box for over a week. I started writing it several times over, the page has been sitting blank with thoughts swirling around, then I parked it and left it because… well I didn’t really know what to say exactly, precisely… wasn’t sure it…

Working on Development Areas

Do you have a system for working out how to improve certain skills? If we needed help with xl – we can do an xl course. If we wanted to learn to play tennis – we could join a tennis group. If we wanted to get better at parenting, we could read the plethora of…
