Stretch Your Way to Productivity

April 27, 2017 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

If you have busy times at the desk where you are super focused and industrious you are probably not paying too much attention to your posture.  Typically when we are in the highly productive work mode we adapt a posture of slightly sitting forward, perhaps rounding over the keyboard, chin jutting slightly forward.  However, with […]



5 Productivity Improvement Methods While Working As A Freelancer

March 28, 2017 | Fonthip Ward

Working in Coworking

The freelance economy is certainly gaining ground in the U.S. and across the globe. According to a recent workforce study on “Freelancing in America: 2016,” the freelance sector now represents 35 percent of the U.S. workforce. The independent study also shows that there is indeed a market for this type of work, and over the […]



7 Ways to Boost Your Boldness as a Leader

March 6, 2017 | Sally Dooley

Boldness has long been considered necessary for effective leadership. Intuitively you recognise the value of a bold leader: they are inspiring to be around and they challenge you to grow beyond your current limitations.  Although boldness has traditionally been associated with male leaders, the latest research from Harvard Business Review shows that women scored slightly […]



Want Your Business to Thrive? Rediscover Your Spirit of Adventure.

February 21, 2017 | Sue Lester

You may be thinking, “I don’t have TIME for adventure! Who’ll do all the work while I swan off to the Himalayas?”  Or perhaps even the mere idea of “adventure” is exhausting?  The thing is, adventure comes in many forms, and it’s exactly what you need to get over the relentless grind and stress. The […]



I Don’t Have Time To Publish a Book!

February 20, 2017 | Dyan Burgess

The key to any new project is to prioritise its importance. There are times in our lives when we really don’t have time to take on a new project. If this is the case for you right now, it’s probably best to put your book on hold. However, if you’re really keen to get your […]



When That Standing Desk Isn’t The Solution

February 13, 2017 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

I’ve heard such great things about standing desks and how they aid productivity and physical health (in particular posture).  We know we are not meant to sit all day so standing must be a much better option.  So I lashed out and bought a standing desk and placed it in a new work space I’d […]



The Year Ahead….and a Year in Review

January 26, 2017 | Dianna Jacobsen

January. The time of year when many of us set our goals for the year….and berate ourselves over what we did not accomplish the previous year. Whilst goal-setting is a good thing, it is important not to later use it as a means of reflecting on what you failed at, on what you didn’t achieve. Many […]



Why Leaders Need To Be Optimists

January 24, 2017 | Sally Dooley

While I am certainly not advocating leaders adopt a ‘Pollyanna’ approach that ignores reality, the research shows there is a strong connection between optimism and performance. Optimistic leaders not only experience improved performance themselves, but their own optimism also positively influences the optimism of those they lead. Optimism and pessimism refer to the way you […]



Workplace Wellness: Why Happy Workers Are Productive workers

January 20, 2017 | Fonthip Ward

All employers want to make their workplace more productive, although for many it can be hard to determine what they can do, easily, to promote productivity. As it turns out, making sure your employees are happy goes hand in hand with solving this problem, as studies have shown that happiness provides a very tangible increase […]



Reduce Speed Now – What’s Around You?

November 21, 2016 | David Solomon

This was the flashing road sign that I saw on my way to a meeting one morning. I spontaneously laughed out loud. You see, I was crawling along in a traffic jam and really couldn’t have been going any slower unless I was stopped. I’ve always avoided peak hour traffic as much as I possibly […]
