Business Lightbulb Moment!

March 23, 2017 | Dianna Jacobsen

Have you ever had a lightbulb moment? You know, the ones where something seemingly obvious suddenly ‘hits you’ and some aspect of life becomes clearer as a result? Well, one such revelation that I encourage you to ‘have’ (I know, they can’t really be engineered, but humour me….) is the realisation that when you set […]



How Can You #BeBoldForChange When It Doesn’t Feel Right?

March 10, 2017 | Sue Lester

#BeBoldForChange is the 2017 International Women’s Day (and beyond) theme, but how do you step up and take bold action for change, if you don’t feel bold inside? That internal fear and self-doubt keep many women locked into dead-end jobs, toxic or limp relationships and negativity. A definition of courage is to feel the fear […]



The World Needs Women Entrepreneurs

January 18, 2017 | David Solomon

There is a gradual but steady global shift that I believe will result in women being the inevitable future leaders of our societies. If not, at the very least the current imbalance will be redressed. What is needed in business today is a better grasp of (and comfort with) relationships of all kinds. And this […]



Do You Need To Love What You Do?

December 1, 2016 | David Solomon

Perhaps you’re feeling indifference where there ought to be passion? Apathy where there should be purpose? Resignation where there should be excitement? The reality for many business owners is that you’ve worked hard, you’ve done all that you thought you were supposed to do, and now you’ve reached a point of disillusionment. You might even […]



How To 10X The Effectiveness of Your Delegation

November 9, 2016 | Sally Dooley

Delegation is a critical leadership skill and in my experience as a leadership coach and facilitator,  it is not done well at any level in many organisations! Leaders and managers frequently miss out on the opportunity to build capability and improve productivity; engage and motivate their team; align their own and other’s strengths and passions […]



Are You Missing in Action?

October 17, 2016 | Sue Lester

Have you gone missing in action?  Yes, you’re physically still present, rushing here and there, juggling home and work commitments.  Your family, staff and clients can see your body, but where are you? The real you, inside, the you that was always fun, with a taste for adventure in life – do you even remember […]



Why You Need To Become A Storyteller

September 22, 2016 | Catriona Pollard

In today’s business, communications and media climate, you also need to know how to be a storyteller. To be competitive in your business, you have to learn how to tell your narrative and share it widely. Although long-form and conventional journalism now share the stage with messages of 140 characters or less and images that […]



Promote a Progress Focus to Boost Creativity

June 21, 2016 | Sally Dooley

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 […]



The Sixth Secret to Success and Inner Peace: You Can’t Solve a Problem with the Same Mind that Created it! (from the work of Dr Wayne Dyer)

May 31, 2016 | Dianna Jacobsen

What results are you seeing in your life at present? In your relationships, health, prosperity, career, and sense of empowerment and well-being….. Which aspects of your life are not showing the results that you were hoping for by now? Are there people or forces that you are blaming or holding responsible for your current outcomes? […]

May 19, 2016 | Sally Dooley

Excellent leaders understand that reflection is a central and mandatory part of their leadership practice and prioritise this high importance activity. They recognise that a short term investment of time and focus will reap significant gains in all areas of their lives and work. As leadership expert, Peter Drucker, advocates, ‘Follow effective action with quiet […]
