August 4, 2015 | Vicki Writer

Sleeping in to avoid facing your life

For us to arm ourselves with a set of strategies to achieve our goals, we first must understand what is driving our behaviour. Whilst there are three main components that drive all of our behaviour, I am going to focus on our self-talk for the purposes of this blog. The way we talk to ourselves […]

Get Ready to Go Above and Beyond

July 24, 2015 | Sarah Savvas

Customer service wins

Creating great customer experiences — what leaders like Disney, Zappos and Nordstrom do on a consistent basis — is one of the few areas left for companies to differentiate themselves and generate good margins. Making it happen, however, is easier said than done; fundamentally, it boils down to a people issue. So how do you get […]

Eavesdropping For Effective Communication.

July 21, 2015 | Sue Lester


Language is a very powerful filter, because we create our reality through our perceptions of events.  In other words, we talk to ourselves about what is happening, and can empower or disempower ourselves with our self-talk.  In addition, we have a language filter which may block out a third or two-thirds of the conversation we […]

Does The Truth Really Hurt?

July 16, 2015 | Leo Eliades

Does the truth really hurt

I can recall over the years many conversations in one context or another referring to the truth and there being a pain associated to it. I am sure you can recall these conversations and thoughts as well. Does the truth really hurt? Or have we been misled all these years and is there something missing? […]

How To Change The Perception Of A Challenge

June 18, 2015 | Leo Eliades

Act Now - Start believing in yourself to overcome any challenge in your business.

Some time ago I realised I was often unhappy with myself, I would get caught up on the idea that I was not as successful as I would’ve hoped. Due to not achieving the high expectations I had placed on myself, I was left feeling challenged. Later I realised this challenge was actually success and […]

End of year stock take

It’s the mid-point or end-point of the year, depending whether you work in financial years or not. So how are you tracking? Is there a smile of satisfaction on your face, or a look of disappointment or fear? No need to despair, the rest of your life starts a second from now, so you can […]

May 21, 2015 | Dianna Jacobsen

Meet and learn from others

Are you still learning? They say that we are either growing or dying, so I hope your answer was a resounding YES! If anyone wants to present something to you, always accept: you’ll learn something every single time, and they will possibly lead you to a path of new opportunities or a new network of […]

How To Get Exactly What You Want In Life

May 19, 2015 | Leo Eliades

Success looks different to all of us

A famous line from years ago, “Rise early, work hard, strike oil”. Can this be the premise and the all important action that gets you what you want in  life? After years of personal experiences as well as from observing others it seems at least partly true. It all comes down to your personal expectation […]

Who is “Me”?

May 8, 2015 | Sue Lester

Mum, Wife and ME

You might have noticed how easy it is to lose yourself in our super busy lives, especially once kids come along? The trouble is, when you lose yourself, in other words, disconnect to who you are as an individual, you start losing your powerbase and leaving yourself vulnerable to Life’s challenges. Your degree of resilience, […]

Bearing Witness

April 30, 2015 | Thomas Downey

Bear witness

“Unfathomable” she declared and quickly composed herself in the opposite chair. It was as if, for a moment, her corporate persona had unravelled. Instantly she commenced recounting the event which had left her bewildered. It seemed her senior had asked her to be an “observer” at a “performance feedback session” of a “challenging” employee. Apparently […]
