The Key to Sales

The sale of a product, service or idea, is about change. From not having, to having. Moving from one emotional state to another. Elevating to the next status role. And the person selling, is there to help you change. If you don’t want to change, you don’t need them. And they can’t help you. Inspired…

Noticing your everyday leadership moments

I love this video from Drew Dudley And it resonates with me because I also thought that leadership needs to be this big culture-shifting and epically profound impact on a person or group. I would shy away from doing things and helping others because, well, who am I to do that? What difference can little…

People don’t really like surprises.

This sort of organisational culture takes a huge amount of psychological safety and won’t happen overnight. It takes guts to implement over time and you might lose…

Stopping Short

“Succesful people are successful because they know their weaknesses” “Most people don’t listen with the intent to understand, they listen with the intent to reply” A friend said:What struck me is that we often focus on listening. But stop. And often that is hard enough.  But am I seeking to understand?

New season. New Goals.

It’s time to change things up. And as the season changes, so do our priorities and intentions. It’s that start of a new academic year following the summer break that seems ingrained in us to begin new things or reinvigorate a lagging project. The kids are back to school, and so are you in some…
