Leading on Purpose

How do you start your day? Do you get up a 5am for a comprehensive workout followed by a healthy breakfast, or do you hit the snooze button to get in 10 more minutes and end up rushing out the door with barely enough time to make an instant coffee? At work do you dive right into emails, or do you actively avoid looking at your inbox before the “serious” work is done? These are just a few (polar opposite) examples of the morning routines of highly successful leaders. On the face of it, the logic…See More

Upping Your Coaching Game: 10 Tips to Help Busy Leaders Become Better Workplace Coaches

Coaching is one of the most impactful tools that a leader has at their disposal to support, and help members of their team improve performance. Coaching a team member to develop and reach their full potential can also be one of the most rewarding aspects of being a leader.

The One Resolution You Should Make In 2017

Coming into 2017 Gary Keller’s excellent book “The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results” was at the top of my summer reading list to (re)read. I find that this is a fantastic book to keep in mind when starting out anytime new (particularly a New Year) as the central theme of the book presents a powerful question - “What is the one thing that if done makes everything else easier or unnecessary?”. As a psychologist working with businesses across a range of…See More

The Forgotten Leadership Conversation: Reluctant Leaders

If you were from another planet and came to earth to study leadership you'd probably get a fairly warped sense of the types of people who become leaders - you’d find a raft of bold, self promoters who loved the spotlight, and would take any chance to grow their leadership influence. If you thumbed through a selection of popular leadership books you’d find that almost everything is written in a style that assumes that everyone wants to be a leader. If you stopped there, you’d be missing a…See More

Although High Performance Teams are far too rare, the secret that underpins their success is simple, and well within the…See More

Leading High Performance Teams: People AND Profits

When the chips are down, how do your staff describe you as a leader? In times of stress, most leaders (through no fault of their own) fall into the trap of becoming overly focused on one of two key aspects of their teams - either people, OR profits. This is because our stress reactions encourage us to default to our comfort zone.People focused leaders devote their efforts to ensuring that above all else relationship are maintained.
