Old ridged hierarchical organizational structures are being consigned to the history books, giving way to fluid and collaborative project based teams. In this new world of work, the ability to gain and maintain employees’ trust is crucial for leadership success. If a leader isn’t trusted by their team then they’ll never achieve their full potential…See More

If upon reflection you find that like most people you're struggling with your goals you have two options:Shrink your (goal related) expectations - Setting audacious stretch goals is a great way for us to push ourselves to new levels of performance, but sometimes we can set the bar too high, and in such cases,…See More

Managing Change Strategically: Stakeholder Mapping

Change at work is a more complex process than most realise, with between 50-70% of workplace initiatives destined to fail. This is actually unsurprising as while most change initiatives are well thought through on the practical level with the aid of project planning tools like action plans and gantt charts, the people side of change is often overlooked - And change is fundamentally about the people who will have to implement change and live with the results.Similar to planning tools that assist…See More

Wellbeing at work is more than Happiness

More and more business owners are realising both the monetary and moral benefits of high employee wellbeing at work. On the monetary side we know that employees with high wellbeing produce higher quality work (greater customer satisfaction), and experience fewer absences (lower sick leave costs). On the moral side of the equation as businesses look beyond pure profits and towards initiatives of corporate social responsibility, showing care for staff wellbeing is a fantastic place to start.…See More

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
