Coaching for 2018

With instant and global connectivity there's really no limitation on coaching sessions - to celebrate the launch of my first book I'm therefore allocating more time in my diary to providing coaching sessions.

Contact me now if you'd be interested in finding out more about what's involved - whether for a one-off kick up the ... session, a retreat like weekend, or a more gentle programme of coaching sessions.

Or first read about the myths and benefits of coaching.

Do you remember that dress?


Remember #ThatDress? 

You may see it as Gold and white or as Blue and white.

I'm not kidding. 

I appreciate if you see it as gold you will find it hard to understand how someone else could see it as blue, and visa versa. 

If you don't believe me just ask a few people, and it won't be long until they tell you a different colour to the one you're seeing. Just for clarity I see it as gold. 

It's a great reminder that this happening all the time - not just in colours but interpreting words we use too. I say "procurement" and I'm sure my meaning will be different to the stakeholders or suppliers hearing me saying it. In workshops I use an exercise using the word Chocolate which always provides a reminder to check understanding rather than making assumptions.
