No, me neither, but it’s not a silly question.  Or rather it IS, until you put it in context. So what do I mean? Well during last weeks webinar we were talking about the T.R.I.P Sat Nav System, which is a system of 4 parts for making sure the business goes where you want it to go.  In case you missed it T.R.I.P. stands for :- Target – where are you going?  You have to

There has been a bit of a theme going on this year for us. A lot of the Business Owners and Senior Managers we have worked with have found 2018 hard. One thing many of our clients say to us, when we speak to them for the first time is, “I have people in my business who are frustrating me, and preventing the business from growing”. I can understand the frustration. We have worked with
change
Change! It’s a scary thought for most people.  And that’s perfectly natural. Your body and Psyche is pre programmed to avoid change.  Think about it. In caveman days, change was rarely a good thing.  The familiar was comfortable.  You might go up a tree or stand on a hill and survey your known world.  And if it all looked the same as yesterday then that’s great. But if there was something that didn’t look right
Leaders
Have you been on a plane recently?  You know when they are going through all the safety notices and they come to the one about oxygen masks?  What is the instruction there?  Well – it is to fix your OWN mask first before attempting to help someone else.  That is because if you put the mask on your child first for example, and then you fainted because you went too long without oxygen, your child
engage
No not in the way you’re thinking – that WOULD be news!   No, I mean engagement in terms of being engaged – at work.  Mostly with your team. There has been a lot of this coming up recently in all sorts of contexts but really – being engaged and getting engagement is crucial to any kind of success in business. You need to get engagement with your customers and potential customers of course, because the
sabotage
I was recently at a networking meeting where there was a guest speaker.  I had travelled some miles to go to this meeting because I was super excited.  The guest speaker was a highly successful small business owner like me – but he was ahead of where I am – in terms of revenue – he was into the multi millions, and we are not quite at that point yet! I met a few other
promote-300x150
Have you recently been promoted to a management position? Of course, you are feeling happy and celebratory and excited!   Or maybe not? You see sometimes when people are promoted to a management position it isn’t as exciting or joyful as they hoped it would be.  What normally happens is that people get promoted because they are great at their job.  You are no doubt great at the job you have been promoted from, and that

No – it’s not a trick question, and neither is this….. Have you ever thought about doing something new but then stopped yourself, because you thought It won’t work”  or “I am not that kind of person”, or maybe “It’s just too hard”? Well, that was me last Sunday. A lovely woman (Monica) who I met about 5 or 6 years ago, asked me what I was doing on Sunday. “Relaxing with my 2 small
time management
Have you ever been on a time management course?  It becomes very clear very quickly that the title of the course about “Time Management” is probably an oxymoron.  I mean you can’t manage time can you? I’m guessing that you, like me, have 24 hours in a day.  There isn’t much you can do about it.  You can be more productive of course, and you can learn how and when to delegate, but you can’t

How To Get More Done

It’s Thursday!  How is this week going for you?  Are you on track to get everything done that you wanted to achieve this week?  Or have you been derailed?  Have you been side-tracked, or even overwhelmed, with all the things that were not on your To Do list on Monday morning, but somehow, have appeared on it during the last 3 days. And if this describes your week – is it JUST this week, or
