More Ideas Is Not The Solution

August 22, 2016 | Sue Lester

Good ideas will never help to grow your business if you don't actually implement any of them.

What if you already have what you need?  That secret to success has already appeared, but you missed it? The ironic thing about overwhelm from too much information, too many good ideas, is that it can result in the opposite – no ideas and feeling stuck.  So when you or your business is feeling sluggish […]



Take Your Business From Woe to WOW

August 16, 2016 | Vicki Writer

How do you reward your staff when they go over and above your expectations?

I sat in on a great session while overseas recently with Michelle Hoskin, a business coach in the UK who shared a couple of really simple, easy to implement ideas for growing your business. First and foremost, we need a vision. Almost all really successful business owners have a vision that is much bigger than […]

August 12, 2016 | David Solomon

Having a good year

This time of year, many of us can be feeling as though we’re not where we think we ought to be by now. Maybe we didn’t stick to our resolutions or make the changes we envisioned for ourselves.

August 8, 2016 | Sally Dooley

Happy Workers

Effective leaders know that creating an environment where teams are happy is not just a nice idea, it is a critical business imperative.

July 18, 2016 | Sue Lester

New Year New Plan

Whether you achieved great results last financial year, or less than desirable, this is the ideal time for a fresh start.  In the busyness of your business, it’s easy to fall into the trap of doing things the same way because it’s easier, a no-brainer.  Structures and systems are essential for growth, however they need […]



If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes

July 11, 2016 | David Solomon

To reach any goal in business or life your WHY must be BIG enough to motivate you.

I secretly thought I would fail. Yes, I’ve had a pretty significant health transformation. (BTW, this blog is about more than health). It’s obvious just looking at my photos that I’ve lost a ton of weight. Of course it’s not just about the weight – it’s about how incredible I feel as a result of […]

June 21, 2016 | Sally Dooley

Culture Focus

Leaders in today’s context need the capability to cultivate a culture of creativity and innovation. This culture gives teams and organisations a competitive advantage and is the only way to ensure an ongoing adaptiveness to the constant and unending changes we are all experiencing. Harvard researchers, Teresa Amabile and Steven J Kramer, have identified an […]

June 20, 2016 | Sue Lester

Breathing for success

Do you feel like you’re suffocating under all the To Dos?  Perhaps you’re exhausted and frustrated from repeating yourself until you’re blue in the face?  Does it feel a long time since you’ve come up for air?  Our language reflects what is happening at that deeper, unconscious level, in this case your autonomic system which […]
