Be careful what you ask for

I’ve heard all the stories about being specific with your goals or you might actually get what you asked for but it might not be what you wanted.  Heard that too? Well this morning I’m looking at our joint vision board and realise it works for that as well. Earlier this year I encouraged Mike…

Learnings from my Challenge

I promised that I would share my experiences from carrying out the 100 coaching conversation challenge when I had had time to reflect.

Inspiring Books

  I’ve always loved reading.  Any photos of me as a child tended to depict me with my nose in a book.  Mum always said that Christmas for us was all about Dad and I reading our presents! That said, up until a couple of years ago, I only read novels.  Recently though I’ve discovered…

The Importance of Self Care

If you know me well, or if you’ve worked with me, you’ll know this is something I’m particularly keen on.  Looking after yourself is the single most important thing you can do in this life.  If you aren’t in good condition you won’t be in a fit state to look after anyone else or to…
