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…

Adjusting Perspective

How well are you able to adjust your perspective? Are you able to put yourself into the other person’s shoes and see things through their eyes? Do you shift your viewpoint depending on what others say or can you flex your perspective on any given day? Or do you sit firmly entrenched with your own…

Creative Juices flowing Again

Hi there, I’m back! Did you miss my blogs? A lovely client of mine called me out the other day and said “I haven’t seen any of your blogs pop up on my feed lately”. Whilst I could have used the FB algorithms as an excuse, I didn’t. I fessed up and said. ‘Mmm, I…

Bravery at the Front

“She must be fearless” my brother James said. “Actually she’s not” I replied. On Anzac Day, Lucy my 11-year-old rose early, the alarm ringing at 5.45 am. She’d been up for half the night, nerves taking hold. Each year for the last few years, she’s committed to playing The Last Post at 6 am and…

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…

Top 4 Lessons from Life in Lockdown

No one is super human. We’re all human. In our house a few weeks ago blood was drawn. Just a quick momentary brain snap between both kids which resulted in an inch long fingernail scratch across a child’s face. It was so quick and happened in an instant. As I sat very calmly talking through…

Pressure is a Privilege

Wholeheartedly agree and in normal world supporting leaders do and be at their best, pressure is absolutely a privilege and the price one pays for holding the senior roles.

Stretching Limits Personally & Professionally

Professionally probably not that much, I’m not a Picasso or even an aspiring Archibald artist, I simply adore art for my own passion. Something important to note, it wasn’t…

Have you ever thought some of the drama being played out at work could be worthy of an Oscar award? It’s so intense, long running and well-acted. That is, well, if you’re able to observe it and actually not get entangled up in the drama itself. Not all of us find it that easy to…
