How Does Your Ego Play Out?

By | 2018-11-07T04:38:40+00:00 April 18th, 2018|Uncategorized|

When does your competitive streak take you over? Where does your need to succeed become unhealthy for you and others? Our natural strengths, and those we've honed, can become the source of negative disruption, if we don't pay attention. When leaders drive their teams toward a result, without concerning themselves with how that result is [...]

The Desire Within.

When people turn up to work every day, they come with everything that's made them who they are to this point. Their triumphs and victories, their failures and pain points. Their confidence in their strengths, their self-doubt learned through endless judgement. They come with their hopes to succeed, and determination not to stand out for the wrong [...]

Your Environment is Stronger Than Your Willpower.

Some leaders want their 'challenging' people "fixed" by a coach. Can you just take them away, fix them up and return them when they're sorted out? Ah...no. A mentor of mine once shared "your environment is stronger than your willpower". No matter how transformational the coaching, UNLESS the environment makes a shift to support the [...]

Unlocking Buried Treasure.

Behavioural profiles can get a bad wrap. But the right one used well is like finding the golden key that unlocks the buried treasure in your team. Even your most determined, dogged or distracted employees can be inspired to flex their communication and behaviour, grow as influencers and elevate their results. Understanding what triggers them [...]

Stepping Into Greatness.

By | 2018-11-07T04:46:59+00:00 March 14th, 2018|Uncategorized|

I see young women in leadership searching. Expecting to be welcomed into empowered work places, but often experiencing something different. Hoping those who’ve gone before will role model healthy confidence and influence, only to realise their mentors are equally challenged in being their authentic selves. Young women share with me their fear of not being supported, [...]

Vulnerability is the Doorway to Trust.

By | 2018-11-07T04:53:03+00:00 March 7th, 2018|Uncategorized|

What is vulnerability in leadership? It unlocks performance, but it exists as a nebulous concept for many. Vulnerability is the doorway to trust, deeper engagement, inspired and interdependent collaboration and expanded contribution to results. With engagement at work in Australia at 24%, according to Gallup, it's clear business is missing opportunities. The simplicity of vulnerability [...]

High Performance Teams.

By | 2018-11-07T04:56:24+00:00 February 28th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Leaders who excel at driving results, often drive their people the same way. That's how they work. But it can have a polarising effect, motivating some and completely disempowering others. It's the experience, wisdom and ideas of these very capable 'others' that remains untapped and often unnoticed unless a leader... 1. Learns to develop their [...]

Connect, Communicate and Empower.

By | 2018-11-07T04:54:27+00:00 February 21st, 2018|Uncategorized|

Most leaders avoid, or attempt to dominate, difficult conversations. Some distract themselves with other priorities while silently worrying about what needs to be said and how another will respond. Lacking confidence in reaching a win-win outcome, they procrastinate until the window has closed, promising themselves to act sooner next time. Others, powered by frustration and [...]

Emotional Intelligence is…..

By | 2018-11-07T04:58:26+00:00 February 14th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Emotional intelligence is communicating how I feel without blaming you for feeling this way. It's about owning my triggers, my filters, my self-imposed limits. And recognising that you have yours too. EQ is... - sourced in awareness - cultivated with compassion - engaged through accountability. It's for those who want to lead powerfully with influence. [...]
