We all have gremlins, sometimes known as our inner critical voice. Howe we deal with these is important to our personal performance. These gremlins are energy blockers that hold us back from working effectively. If left these can fester and magnify. Knowing how to deal with these is the key to success. There are high […]

Unintended Consequences

It is difficult to understand what the VW leadership were thinking about, when they decided to devise a software system that was designed to fool the emissions testing regime. Now the deception is out, it is likely that this will rumble on, and be costly for the Company in all dimensions, not only in actual […]

Long Days

I am doing some long days at the moment, and as you get older, it gets harder. However this is not an issue if you stay positive and work with your anabolic ( life giving and building) energy.

Winning Form

The driver of Car 77 finally gets onto the top step of the podium. The difference between this win, and my other previous places was the power of positive thought and anabolic energy. I was ready to go home after the second race due to a long weekend and fatigue. However, I centered myself in […]

Giving Feedback

Giving effective and honest feedback can be one of the most powerful ways of helping friends and colleagues. The keywords are honest and fair. Feedback should never be used as a weapon against people, or in retaliation. Sometimes we don’t always feel comfortable in giving honest feedback to our friends when asked, for fear of […]

Too Hasty to Judge

I stumbled across an interesting article on the BBC website, about how there is a small section of society who are unable to feel or show emotion. http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20150818-what-is-it-like-to-have-never-felt-an-emotion This can have a significant effect for them about building effective relations, and getting on with life. It got me thinking, about how society reacts. There is […]

Mentoring

A great example of mentoring and leadership in the article.  Whoever we are we all need coaching and guidance, and if we are lucky enough to get it early in our careers. The more receptive we are to this, the better the outcome. There is a difference between coaching and mentoring. Mentoring involves an experience […]

Win-Win

There is a lot of talk about win-win, but what does this really mean, and how to we get to this holy grail in our work or negotiations. It is critical that we get the results we desire to move forward.  I have given this thought, and tried to put this in my own context […]

“Lean” , Simple & The Power of Visual Management

Just went to pick up some currency for my holiday, and the lady in the booth did a very smart thing. Instead of just counting it in her hand, she laid it out in a logical grid, by denomination so it was easy for me to see the total, before she re-counted and handed it […]

Leadership vs. Bullying

An interesting article on the BBC (see link) on why bullies flourish in the workplace. http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20150108-why-bosses-keep-bullies-around Unfortunately this is the critical reality of the workplace. Bosses don’t necessarily deliberately let this environment flourish, it tends to be passive rather than active. Bosses take the path of least resistance, and for the reasons given in the […]

Staying on Top

I am sharing a great link from the Huffington Post about self care and looking out for ourselves. A simple 6 point self check to ensure we are fit always for what we are doing and how we present ourselves. The point about doing things we enjoy, which are not directly related to work, particularly […]

Faking

A very interesting article in The Times this weekend .  “All sorts of psychopaths, congenital liars and Machiavellian schemers could be slipping through the net of psychometric testing with disastrous effects scientists have warned. The classic “Big Five” traits used by psychologists to measure personality – extroversion, openness, agreeableness, conscientiousness and neuroticism – are said […]

Complexity vs Simplicity

If we have a think about the vexing question of Greece’s mounting debt , repayments to the EU it looks like a very complex, involved political problem. However, when we start to look at the principles and values at stake the discussion could be a lot simpler. If we join a club (EU) and we […]

FIFA

Well as the situation with FIFA unfolds, and the organisation continues to unravel itself, we can see the power of truth, authenticity and trust which are the key attributes of what we believe in within coaching. It was only a matter of time before the truth began to surface, and one can only imagine the […]

Do Accidents Happen ?

This is a moot point. The word implies that things can happen which are out of our control. For years the British Police Force have been trying to change the anacronym RTA meaning Road Traffic Accident to RTI for Road Traffic Incident because accidents don’t just happen, they are made. Incidents happen when we take […]
