F@@k Talent!

If you’re a Service Leaver, Veteran or Reservist who is adapting to life after the military and you want to level up your leadership, my weekly emails will help you.

It’s taken a while to change my thinking. It’s not my fault it’s taken this long, I have been working in regimented and rigid environments for many years and it takes time to adapt from ideas I have become accustomed to and understand.

Here’s what I believe. I assert that Talent is an arbitrary and immeasurable metric created by some to prevent others from achieving their best.

It’s the infamous gatekeeper without a face. The qualitative and intangible wolf in sheep’s clothing. 

So, if growth and mastery is your goal, set talent to one side. How might skills lead the way for you?

Skills are not finite. They are a renewable resource at your disposal. And getting better at them will build resilience and confidence, courage and bravery.

All the stuff that needs to kick in when you are faced with an unknown and uncertain situation.

So the question is, are you training for what you know?

Or might your time be better-spent training for the unknown?


And now Spring is here and there’s more inspiration in the air, it’s time for a Gathering.

Are you creative? Not sure?
Let’s find out together and see just how much scope there is for creativity.

  • What is creativity?
  • How do I learn it?
  • What can I do with it?
  • How might I manage the fear?

Uniformity is the key to success for many organisations and it plays havoc with our unique creativity. It suppresses it all the way down, right into your big toe. Join in and find answers to those questions as we share our experiences of finding the inner creative. Let’s encourage it to the surface and see where it might lead us.

Register here for the call and bring your creative self.

    You were with us in spirit at today’s hijinks’ call Abbie. I referenced the wisdom of this newsletter and the awareness that it takes time and effort to change our thinking patterns. Thank you!
