The Blunt Truth

The Blunt Truth

I remember learning about the suffragettes when I was about 10. As the youngest of three girls, doing well at school and a Dad who thought we were as good as any boys, I was shocked to realise that my grandmothers had been part of that generation […]

Bounce Back

Bounce Back

The year is only 6 weeks in and so far I have experienced a couple of minor ailments and a bereavement.  With an unusually heavy workload for January it has meant that I have had to draw on deep wells of resilience in order to […]

The Dreaded Networking

The Dreaded Networking

I was at a conference recently.  All was going well.  I had been invited to run workshops on ‘Building your Resilience’ and the room was bursting at the seams.  The signals that let me know that people were engaged and on track were evident.  The […]

Women, prick up your ears.  When you stand like Wonder Woman for two minutes (legs slightly apart, arms akimbo, head up, back straight, body balanced) it changes your internal feelings of power and control.   Your testosterone levels increase and your cortisol decreases helping you feel more able and more […]

Whakapapa

Whakapapa

What are the hallmarks of future leaders?  What makes leaders successful today, may not work so well in the future.  It is not just the right skills, but the ability to master new ones that will count.  Claudio Fernandez formerly director of research at the […]

“What I dream of is an art of balance” – Henri Matisse

“What I dream of is an art of balance” – Henri Matisse
