As someone who took a while to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up 😊 I know only too well there’s one or two decisions to be made around what career / business opportunity to follow.

This Japanese concept of Ikagai (a reason for being) can help narrow do...

A few clever folk (researchers and leadership coaches ) reckon the people we spend the most time around can determine our achievement, our success or failure in life by as much as 95%
That’s quite a lot 😳

We hear it all the time in success stories, that so and so reall...

What we give air to thrives.
What we give energy to thrives.
What we give time to thrives.

Love a big sky.
Sometimes it’s those times we can be most reluctant to move that yield the biggest rewards.
That’s the nature of transformational change.


Both personally and in organisations, having laser focus and changing up habits / processes consistently, day after...

Posting in honour of Oprah Winfrey (birthday Jan 29th) 🎂


I really appreciate this reminder to be deliberate about what we choose to allow into our life, and, equally importantly, what we choose not to allow.
The same principle applies to strategic planning, which is s...
