Happiness is an inside job

By : -

Earlier this week I caught 10 minutes of the new Chris Evans breakfast show on Virgin Radio. He announced the theme for the day was ‘happiness is an inside job’.  I really agree with this concept although sometimes it doesn’t always feel like that. In fact more often than I’d like I get caught out […]

Stacking the Odds

By : -

I love helping people understand how to get the most from themselves and the situations that come their way. The majority of my time is spent in professional environments supporting people. That work is great, however, there is something very special about working with individuals who want to push their own performance to a new […]

A couple of weeks into 2019 and for me it feels like the year is already moving at pace. Christmas seems like weeks ago. As you think about what you’d like to achieve over the coming 12 months how certain are you that you are setting yourself up for a podium performance? I like the […]

Are you ready for 2020?

By : -

Recently I turned up to a hospital for an MRI scan on a back injury. Armed with my appointment letter I was almost looking forward to the experience of seeing what an MRI scan actually feels like. “You’re 12 hours too early,” the receptionist said.  A closer inspection of the letter clearly stated 11:10 pm.

Questions – a route to strength…

By : -

I was working with a client recently who had moved to a new organisation and wanted support with their transition. Like many people, the thought of operating in the new environment was challenging. New things to think about, new people to interact with and different expectations. One of the specific (and not uncommon challenges) was […]

Congestion not just the M25

By : -

Take any large city and you’ll find some kind of ring road to help people get around. London’s M25, the Paris Peripherique and the Washington Beltway are three typical examples. One thing that these roads have in common is the frustration they can cause through congestion. The congestion isn’t just caused by the volume of […]

When challenges come at us quicker than we are able to process we can find that we get knocked off course. When working with a team or individual to improve resilience we will explore what we can do in advance of this situation occurring – its almost inevitable that it will happen at some point. […]
