Part 2: 3 Ways to Fail-safe Your Prized Relationships – At home and at work.

August 11, 2014 | Sue Lester

To bring about change you have to take time out reflect on why you unconsciously do what you do.

It’s easier to mend a relationship than to find a brand new one and start afresh.  Consider the emotional and financial cost of divorce, of sacking and hiring staff, of ‘breaking up’ with a joint venture partner.  Are you wincing at the thought? Relationships are to be valued and nurtured to remain gold. There are just 3 key […]

Start setting acceptable boundaries around your time. Here's how to say 'no' instead of always feeling like you have to say 'yes'.

Hello again! How is your 9 square process coming along? I trust you are well on the way to creating the life of your dreams! Today I’d like to talk about boundaries; about establishing mental parameters to filter what we allow ‘in’ to our time and space. I touched earlier on the point that we […]

Relationships at work and home Part 1

It’s easier to mend a relationship than to find a brand new one and start afresh.  Consider the emotional and financial cost of divorce, of sacking and hiring staff, of ‘breaking up’ with a joint venture partner.  Are you wincing at the thought? Relationships are to be valued and nurtured to remain gold. There are just 3 […]

Engaging Your Team Through On-site Training

July 4, 2014 | Sarah Savvas

Get you staff excited about training. Here's 3 ways to make your training sessions more engaging.

Corporate training has seen massive growth in the past three years, with training expenditures exceeding $130 billion worldwide. The reasons are due to both the economic recovery, as well as businesses discovering vast gaps in their employees skill sets. Although most companies understand the need for ongoing training, many have difficulty getting their workers excited […]



Delegate or Die!

June 6, 2014 | Sue Lester

Stop trying to be the jack of all trades and do it all. Start delegating - it's good for your own health and sanity.

Ok, so the title is a little dramatic, but seriously, if you persist in insisting on doing it all yourself, something has to give – your health, your relationships or your business, perhaps all three.  What’s the highest risk for you right now?  What are the consequences of that ‘dying’? Is having so much to do […]

Does Your Business Need More Empathy?

May 23, 2014 | Ingrid Cliff

It's imperative that your customers feel loved and cared for if you want to retain their business.

If you believe the research, women are naturally more empathetic than men. But why is that a good thing in business? Empathy is defined by Simon Baron-Cohen as “Our ability to identify what someone else is thinking or feeling, and to respond to their thoughts and feelings with an appropriate emotion.” (1) Researchers suggest that […]



Your Way or The Highway?

May 1, 2014 | Sue Lester

Other people are entitled to have opinions. It is not always about who is right and who is wrong.

How do you like to think  of yourself?  Tolerant, compassionate as well as motivated and successful (or heading that way)?  Yet how do you respond when someone disagrees with ‘your’ way of getting things done?  Calmly consider their view and suggestions, or instantly feel defensive or irritated?  You could be missing a valuable opportunity if […]



Staying on Top of it All – Life Balance for Busy Women #4

April 30, 2014 | Dianna Jacobsen Brunner

Use these strategies and techniques to create your very own 'Big Picture' journal.

Today I’d like to share with you a ‘magical’ strategy I devised many years ago, which has supported countless women to overcome the constant juggle and struggle of managing the many and varied roles of our busy lives. You will need two things: a ‘special’ journal – one that’s new and nice and that you’ll enjoy writing […]
