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 [...]

U is for Uncertainty – Developing Patience and Boundaries

By |2021-04-01T11:51:45+00:00April 1st, 2021|Change, Coach|

A year since the first instruction to stay at home was issued and, after many months of the latest lockdown, the restrictions are starting, cautiously, to lift. For some, that brings a jubilant anticipation of freedom. For others, it brings fear of mixing too soon and a resurgence of infections. Last week, I had my [...]

I is for Irritations – Why Are We Arguing So Much?

By |2020-12-02T16:18:16+00:00December 2nd, 2020|Coach|

How are you feeling as we move into December? It’s not surprising that there is a lot of angst in the world these days. What with all the mixed messages over the pandemic and many other political issues both at home and abroad. Many of us have personal worries too, either at work or home. [...]

O is for Outcomes – giving power to your intentions

By |2020-12-02T14:44:51+00:00October 6th, 2020|Coach|

Did you manage to get a holiday this year? Or a staycation, as most of us have had to do? I do hope you gave yourself a break over the summer months. September is a time of change. Not only seasonally, but also being the beginning of the academic year. Businesses often use this time [...]
