January 31, 2017 | Dianna Jacobsen

A few months ago my blog discussion was based around rediscovering the ‘wealthy you’, in terms of recognising the abundance that surrounds each of us every day, in countless aspects such as plentiful food, enjoying nature, health, happiness, enriching experiences, fulfilling relationships, rewarding occupations, freedom of choice, and so forth, regardless of what our current […]

December 8, 2016 | Sue Lester

If you’re not feeling the Christmas spirit, it’s OK, and you are perfectly normal!  The imagery we see in Australia of what Christmas ‘should’ be is based on the American commercial ideal, and bears very little connection to reality.  (Especially the snowy bit!) Unfortunately, many see the huge gap between the glossy imagery of blithely […]



Do You Ever Struggle To Speak Up?

November 4, 2016 | Kylie Warry

Do you ever struggle to speak up?  Another term for speaking up – is being ‘assertive.’   This is an essential skill that few people have mastered well.  Some communicators struggle with this particularly the ‘Patient and Playful’ styles.  Why?  Because they fear offending people.  Additionally  if you have ever had a bad experience then this […]
