To blog or not to blog…

I started blogging through Medium (Instagram for writers) in May 2019, migrating to a website that August and I have never looked back. Maintaining a 2-year streak of weekly blogs. It became a way for me to unpack ideas and challenge my thinking. Which then helps others to rethink ideas and how they might unpack…

Becoming Smart, Always.

“It’s not what you know that makes you smart, it’s the connections between what you know that makes you smart.” – Michael Bungay Stanier We’ve all done it. Read a book. Studied an article. Written an essay or posted on social media. And we took the shortcut. We hacked our way through. Reading to just get…

Is Trust really a thing?

Or merely a set of secretly coded agreements that align, and sometimes not? And boundaries that are maintained, or may get crossed? So then, might it be down to us to keep communicating, tweaking, nurturing and course-correcting that relationship? So that, we can all get along in life – without having to second guess our…

Time. It’s all invented.

“I appear to have several hours a day spare. I know, I’ll get a puppy!” Says no one.  The same can be said when starting a family.  The desire comes first. Then, we slowly begin to craft our lives around this small, helpless creature. Making time, sacrifices and decisions based on outcomes we couldn’t possibly foresee.  And…

Failing To Innovate

There’s no innovation, without failure. I’ve smashed through this Netflix series called “Movies That Made Us” – fascinating stuff.  Namely because these classic greats were all doomed for failure.  Of course, there are thousands of films made and discarded every year… but some make it through and go on to become the movies of our…

Problem Solving Part 2

Last week I encouraged us to bring our unique selves to the problem-solving table. Because our perspective is vital for collaboration and innovation – to bring together all the POV and lived experiences. And yet, another question remains… Are we creating the best conditions for those unique perspectives to be heard? Encouraging folks to raise…

Problem Solving

Is all relative to person, place, time and situation. How to solve a problem – might be resolved with an easy internet search, asking an expert or referring to a standard operating procedure. Then there’s another dynamic at play – How you might solve a problem. What unique perspective, worldview and imagination do you bring…

Purpose vs purpose

Purpose and what we do are very interlinked – which has pros and cons. In that, we get great satisfaction from what we do when it aligns with a purpose (little p).  But, when we solely rely on what we do to fuel how we feel we are accomplishing our own unique Purpose (big P),…

Craving Contribution and Needing Enrolment

When folks leave the Armed Forces, I see too much inactivity and hiding because of fear of the unknown. Add on top of that, the embedded military values and culture that has been instilled in people as they evolve into the Serviceperson.  And the uncertainty of what that might look like on the other side as…
