Who do you have as part of your 'team' to help you achieve your goals? Who pushes you when you don't feel you can push yourself?At 6.45am this morning, I was not 'feeling it'. I have a fitness goal I am aiming for, and today was not my best start. An informal member of my team is Annie McGuire at Sweatmaster (they live up to their name 😀). An eductaor and a fitness expert, Annie is a bur...

We have all worked for good, bad or indifferent leaders - and their impact on our development, our team, our business and our results can be enormous. 2021 is sparking some changes and updates at the Institute of Management and Leadership development, and one of the focusses is back on the individual as leader, and what makes them do what they do. This has impacted how we are marketin...

What are you too busy to change? Sometimes the answer to solving a problem is right in front of us, if only we didn't 'filter' it out and not see it in a state of constant busyness. When you see this image, what process, system or project in your business / life did you see? For me, it was a broken task / project management system for completing work. 3 or 4 different systems for a...

85% flying blind to expectations
Are you part of the 85% of Australian leaders that assume in a culturally diverse country, with differences in age, gender, experience (at home and at work), role models, culture and opinions, that we would all have the understanding of 'common sense'?

'Your failures make your successes so much more meaningful'. Do you take the time to truly 'own' both? What I mean is - can you truly embrace your failures and see them for what they were? Where you went wrong? What you could have done different?Do you truly embrace your successes? Celebrate them and enjoy them rather than brushing straight past them?I realised after reading this quote a...

Thank you Melbourne! So easy to forget where we were only 2 months ago. Today - 0 infections, 0 deaths and 0.0 14 day rolling average. The numbers don't lie. Like any business result, these numbers have taken extraordinary effort, sacrifice, and the efforts of many - most of who are unnamed and go unthanked. To all of the people of Melbourne - thank you ❤️❤️❤️#leadership #leader #melbour...

Have you ever distracted yourself to inaction? 🙋🏻‍♂️Avoided a problem that you know needs addressing? 🙋🏻‍♂️Got halfway through writing a list and started actioning an item, rather than finishing the list?These are some of the reasons that I, and my clients, appreciate about the coaching process. Coaching provides an opportunity to look at an issue or problem uninterrupted, without distra...

Honest answer - What would you rate your team and business out of 🔟?🔹How important are your numbers? As Melbourne hits its 6th 0️⃣,0️⃣ 'donut' day for COVID infections, I was reminded of a video that we recorded several months ago - prior to transitioning from Kameleons to IMLD. One simple number impacts the way in which you view your business, your team, and your results. Your number i...
