Find your career purpose – part 1

“Purpose is that sense that we are part of something bigger than ourselves, that we are needed, that we have something better ahead to work for. Purpose is what creates true happiness.”   Mark Zuckerburg   Most of us will hit a point in our lives where we stop and re-evaluate our purpose. A significant event […]

A reminder about my coaching

It’s always worth me giving you a reminder to highlight some key things about my coaching.  Here are 3 short points which I hope will save you from missing out: 1.  If you’ve been coached by me before – You might have 1 or 2 coaching sessions which you haven’t yet taken.  Fear not!  You can […]

It’s time to get excited about your career again!

It was my daughter’s first day at high school today (Eeeek!).  Anticipating some first day nerves, I wanted her to know that everything would be OK.  I bought her a good luck card from the family, gave her my best, reassuring pep talk by telling her she’d have a great day, would make new friends […]

So your spider sense is tingling… what?

I’m an absolute sucker for a good superhero story.  But it’s Spiderman that tops my list every time. Spiderman is a superhero that doesn’t rely on brawn or muscles to defeat the bad guys; he’s much more complex than that. From quick wit to web spinning and wall crawling, he’s got the lot. But what’s […]

How to discover the hidden talents of your employees

I believe that everyone has the potential to be a superhero.  It’s just a matter of discovering your natural talents and abilities that currently lie hidden away. You’ve seen the superhero films, where the seemingly average person starts to realise their superpowers. Mastering these new-found powers is never an easy journey (remember Uncle Ben? 🙁 ).  It’s one that requires […]

Need a work holiday? – Banish the guilt!

Summer is here and that might mean you’re preparing for an eagerly anticipated holiday. The lead up to the holidays is never smooth sailing though, is it? Beneath the excitement, lurks a sense of guilt which silently adds an unnecessary pressure your holiday planning. The mere thought of leaving the office behind for a week or more, […]

Where is your value?

As a coach, it’s important to me that my clients leave our coaching sessions feeling like they’ve gained a high level of benefit and value.  One coaching session can be so different from the next and the exact source of where they draw value is completely unique. There’s no magic formula to ensure high value […]

Why it’s great to talk to strangers!

“Don’t talk to strangers!”  “Stranger danger!” This is what we tell our children from a young age.  But at what point do we give our older selves permission to talk to ‘strangers’. The other week I was waiting in a supermarket queue with my son. I struck up a conversation with the lady in front […]
