  • Band Aid

    We work with many CEO’s passionate about what their organisation does, but less so about the time pressures that come with leadership roles. People have a habit of looking to the top for solutions, so it’s no surprise that many CEO’s discover that people and organisational issues are the real time suckers.

  • Perfectly laid out clothes

    Do you identify as a perfectionist - or know someone who believes it makes them or their team, more productive? The truth is - it’s often not the success enabler it’s thought to be. In fact it could be causing some pretty serious damage.

  • 2019 party balloons

    Don’t wait until the new year to make big plans for 2019. Every year millions of us make New Years Resolutions that few people ever achieve. If you want to be different from the crowd, get thinking now about what you want to achieve and make a plan with these top tips:

  • Man questioning employee

    It can be hard as a manager, leader or HR professional when people do behaviour that is troublesome or difficult to know how best to handle it. We usually suggest that you spend some time trying to ascertain what’s behind the behaviour before deciding, but this can be easier said than done...

  • Woman at job interview

    When you’ve worked hard for your professional qualifications, you’d like to think they provide you with guaranteed future career success. They are the foundation, but not the whole picture...

  • employees share stories over coffee

    You are training people, all the time, on how to treat you. Your behaviour constantly gives other people messages, some subtle and some less so, about how to behave towards you and how to communicate with you...

  • Woman eating lunch at her desk

    It’s a sad fact that eating our lunches at our desk has become an accepted norm. Apart from being unhealthy - just think of all those germs and rotting bits of food that fall onto your desk or trapped in your keyboard...

  • Relaxed woman drinking tea

    Did you know that other people are picking up information from you ALL the time? Even if you aren’t speaking or doing anything, you are still communicating. Many people don’t know the unconscious messages they are giving out, partly because you can’t watch yourself the whole time...

  • Man on ladder up in the clouds

    New research conducted by PWC ( Workforce of the Future; the competing forces shaping 2030 ) found that 74% of people are ready to learn a new skill or completely retrain to keep themselves employable...

  • man drinking coffee

    Successful people think long term about their career and plan accordingly. This is not being stuck in a restrictive path there is no going back from, but to have a strategy for progression and a general direction to aim for. Sadly most people spend more time planning a birthday party than planning their life!

    As you evaluate your career and decide where to go next ask yourself these helpful questions...

  • authentic leather

    Over the last 15 years we have been working in the field of leadership development we have become fascinated by the questions people ask us about leadership: What makes a good leader? What makes a bad one? Does the world need leaders who are strong, single minded and driven to get things done quickly or leaders that are flexible, able to listen to everyone’s opinions and who take time to reflect and consider before doing anything?

  • little chef

     ‘What should I do with my life?’
    It’s the most common question people come to coaching and programmes with and given how socially conditioned most of us are, it’s not easy to really get to the core of what really excites us and drives us as a passion.

    There are three main skill sets that ensure success in business: people skills, technology skills and problem-solving skills.
    Problem-solving is a high level thinking skill. It involves accurately assessing an issue, identifying potential solutions and choosing the most effective solutions to implement. Building the problem solving skills of your team benefits your business by boosting productivity, improving teamwork and giving your team the ability to deliver results which stand out from the norm.

  • happy ducks

    Have you thought about what you want to achieve this year yet? New years resolutions rarely make it past the first few weeks but real goal setting each year leads to success and achievement. There is a key to great goal setting though, just visualising what you want won’t necessarily get you it.
