K is for Knowledge – How to Use Knowledge Wisely

By |2022-12-01T12:12:58+00:00December 1st, 2022|Coach, Mentor|

Here’s a crucial question: What’s the difference between knowledge and wisdom?  This answers that question nicely: Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit.  Wisdom is knowing not to put it in the fruit salad! […]

Q is for Questions – Questioning and Listening for Deeper Understanding

By |2022-12-02T11:29:52+00:00October 18th, 2022|Coach|

The art of conversation is quite a skill. It’s also a helpful measure of someone when you first meet them, whether in an interview, a meeting or in your local pub. That first conversation can tell you a lot about a person, helping you to gauge the type of person they are. Even if we [...]

D is for Detail – Knowing When It’s Enough

By |2022-08-30T09:26:11+00:00August 2nd, 2022|Coach|

We’re all wired differently. That’s a good thing in our richly diverse world. If we were all the same, the world would be a very dull place. People’s individual traits show up as strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes, it’s not easy to recognise attributes either in ourselves or others. That’s where D.I.S.C. profiling helps, indicating where [...]

Z is for Zebra – The Camouflage of Imposter Syndrome

By |2022-06-16T12:21:10+00:00June 16th, 2022|Coach|

Zebras are surprisingly good at hiding from being noticed by their prey. Their stripes, which to us seem bold, are great at camouflaging them in long grasses. It’s only when they move that you see them. Similarly, when we don’t want to be noticed, we try to merge into the background to become invisible. As [...]

X is for X-Ray to Find Your Blind Spots

By |2022-04-14T10:41:48+00:00April 14th, 2022|Coach|

Recently I have had a lot of conversations with people about what we keep hidden or are unaware of. We’re spending more time in 2D with people and can’t see the whole picture. There are things we don’t see in other people and we all have our own blind spots. Do you know what your [...]

T is for Time – Making the Most of your Minutes

By |2022-01-31T13:06:56+00:00February 1st, 2022|Coach|

Time can run away from us. We think we have plenty of it, that deadline is days or weeks away. Or we intend to spend five minutes doing something. Suddenly, two hours have passed. Looking back and realising you didn’t achieve everything you wanted to can produce an uneasy jolt. This reminds me of a [...]

Y is for Yo-Yo – Managing the Rollercoaster of Life

By |2021-12-01T10:11:17+00:00December 1st, 2021|Coach|

Life has its ups and downs. Some of us embrace it, relishing the thrill of the rollercoaster. Others prefer a calmer, more predictable lifestyle. Which are you? Are you a thrill-seeker who loves the challenge of a sudden curve ball? Or do you prefer things to be on a more even keel? Perhaps the most [...]

L is for Learning – Every Day’s a School Day

By |2021-10-05T08:57:56+00:00October 5th, 2021|Coach|

At this time of year, many of us feel a fresh injection of energy. Especially if we’ve managed to have a good break over the summer. With the children returning to a new academic year at school, college or university, thoughts can turn towards learning for ourselves, too. After all, life is one long lesson! [...]

N is for No – How to say ‘no’ and still remain friends

By |2021-08-02T12:42:37+00:00August 2nd, 2021|Coach|

How is your summer progressing so far? Have you had a break yet or will you soon? Of course, the nature of your break depends on what’s happening since the change of restrictions on 19 July. Some are delighted to have more freedom, whereas others are feeling very cautious. Whatever your holiday decision, one thing [...]

W is for When – What are you Waiting For?

By |2021-06-01T12:08:58+00:00June 1st, 2021|Procrastination|

Do you tend to think, “When I get this, then I’ll do that”? Have you heard yourself saying “When I get around to it…”? Well, I have got “a round tuit” so I no longer have any excuse! By putting things off until certain things are in place, you’re creating a false assumption that something [...]
