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...

'Be the leader everyone respects and wants to work for'
It takes continued effort, skill, reflection, learning and practice to be a respected leader that everyone wants to work for - and it is worth the effort. On top of that, it takes a healthy does of responsibility, empathy and a desire to want to make things better for your team and business - and it is still worth it.#leadership #leader #leadershipdevelopment #coaching&...

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...

2021 - some new clients, new systems and new processes at Institute of Management & Leadership Development, including sending a book to leaders that have started our Executive Leadership Coaching (ELC) program. We couldn't go wrong with Patrick Lencioni's 'The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team' to start the conversation on leadership, behaviours, values, teamwork and culture. They say that 'l...

When Obstacles Arise You Change Direction
Have you had difficulty in setting some clear goals for 2021? In recent weeks I have been working with leaders and small business owners in setting some clear, actionable, visual and manageable business and personal goals for 2021. Incredibly rewarding to be a part of - seeing someone set goals relating to important parts of their lives, then getting small wins as they start to achieve t...

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'? If you haven't explicitly stated what you want from your peers, teammates and the people you work with - in regards to behaviour, righ...

'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...
