Finding your bravery in unexpected places

In these uncertain times it’s so easy to get stuck. In a recent PWC report, media expert Megan Brownlow, expressed her pessimism about the Australian sector outlook where businesses are reducing both spend and campaign ambition. “We have to educate a raft of business leaders that behaving in the risk averse way that they…See More

Why it’s OK to play the fool on the hill

I’ve always loved the Beatles. As I explored in ‘Bringing out the greatness in others’ the variety of their music was extraordinary. For me, it’s their quirky songs that stand out; none more so than ‘The Fool on the Hill’ – a…See More

Are you Serious about your future success?

As I build my consultancy helping experts to become confident and successful influencers and leaders, I’m struck by how many time wasters I meet.Of course, these people are an irritation to me. But they’re also wasting their own time, resources and personal ‘energy’ as they flit from one free meeting, seminar or webinar to the next – picking up crumbs, but with no focus or strategy. These are not serious people. I doubt that many of them ever achieve the success they claim to seek.Skin in the…See More

The power of doing nothing

I recently returned from the World Masters Games in New Zealand. We came up empty in the hunt for surfboat rowing medal glory. Team ‘Crusty’ scored a creditable fifth, but sadly those Kiwis don’t play at sport! Hardened crews the lot of ‘em. No out-of-condition pub crews, or last-minute ring-ins attempting to recapture long-past…See More

Why blogging is an essential weapon in Activating Brand You

I first wrote ‘the blog about my blog’ 2 years ago. I wanted to lift the bonnet on ‘Pinch of Thought’ to show how it actually works and why. My premise – that writing a blog is no longer a nice-to-do, but a business essential. The intervening 24 months have deepened this belief. You see ‘content creation’ is an…See More

Also known as ‘the contingent workforce’, the Gig Economy is where businesses contract talent on a short-term project or even a daily basis to deliver their…See More

Are you really succeeding?

I wrote recently about the power of connection. In an ironic twist, today my internet connection died – predictably at a supremely inconvenient moment. This created a farcical ‘signal quest’ as I frantically ran like an addict from café to café, “do you have wi-fi, do you have wi-fi?” Finally somewhere did. Message sent. Mission…See More

Pinch of Thought - Why connection trumps capability

I recently ran a leadership workshop where I showed Dr Brené Brown’s excellent Ted talk. I’ve watched it many times and usually concentrate on the section where she discusses vulnerability. But this time I was struck by Brené’s first…See More
