What Matters

I've been reflecting on what matters, lessons learned, practices to experiment with and ideas worth exploring.

What’s stopping you from Playing to your Strengths?

What’s stopping you from playing to your strengths?

Maybe you don’t know yet what your strengths are?

Or do you know your strengths but something, or someone, is stopping you?

What’s stopping you from using your strengths each day?

Please let me know.

If you aren’t Changing it, you’re Choosing it

You don’t need to set a goal to get unfit!

Reflecting on the week (we made it!) and a couple of habits which have crept back in...

I believe that if you aren’t changing it, you’re choosing it.

This weekend it’s time to get back on the path. I’m
choosing positive, healthy habits.

What are you choosing to change?

Quiet

If you tend to the more introverted side of things, you know how exhausting it can be to operate in a world often designed by, and for, those more extroverted.

I love working with quiet leaders and helping them find their quiet power... helping them embrace their quiet power... learning to leverage their quiet strength... it would have to be one of my favourite coaching and mentoring journeys is the blossoming of a wonderfully quiet person into a proud, confident quiet person. 

Does this sound like you?

Know your Worth

There’s an infectious confidence when you know what you’re worth.

You don’t need to verbalise it because you project it by the way you carry yourself.

Invest in you, know what you’re worth and what value you bring.

Forget the failure, learn the lesson

mindset matters Feb 11, 2021

We succeed, we grow. We fail, we grow.

When we don’t know, we grow.  If we let ourselves...

Too often, success and failure don’t lead to growth. Growth mindset has become a bit of a buzzword but at the heart, it is choosing to grow when you hit adversity or when you land a win.

I often say

Forget the failure, learn the lesson

Choose a growth mindset. Choose to learn and grow.

Who is talking for you when you’re not in the room?

Coaching a client on visibility and profile.

A key question - Who is talking for you when you’re not in the room?

Talent and career impacting decisions in organisations are often made when you’re not in the room.

How can you let your leader know what you want/don’t want? Who else in the room knows you and what you can do?

Too often I’ve seen people invest heavily in a sponsor relationship only to have that sponsor leave the organisation, and they are left without an advocate.

I believe you need at least three people on your leadership team who know who you are,...

the power of a head start

How do you give yourself a headstart for the week ahead?

Sunday late afternoon is usually prep day in our household - meal prep, getting things ready for the week ahead so we can destress Monday mornings and have healthy grab and go options through the week.

Then we kick back Sunday evening with relaxed family time.

How do you give yourself a headstart for the week ahead?

Choices

You may have grown, changed, evolved and be more capable than you were before... yet you choose to hold on to limiting beliefs that are no longer useful, relevant or real.

These beliefs stop you from trying, doing and being.

These beliefs stop you from becoming.

Choose what you hold on to, choose what stories you tell yourself. You can choose.

Allow yourself to be where you are

Busy, distracted, balancing the daily demands...?  Often we run from one thing to the next with half an eye on one thing and our mind on something else.  We’re not doing anything well and we quickly fall into overwhelm.

Today I’m out of the office in a full-day workshop while my team are dealing with a heavy workload and stress load.  I feel torn.  I’m so proud of my team and want to be there to support them but I know they’ve got this.  I need to give myself permission to be in the room and focus on the people I’m with.

So, breathe in,...
