Stress Awareness Month – Week 3 Top 3 Cognitive Flexibility Stress Hacks

One of the most important messages I share with my coaching clients about stress is that stress is inside-out not outside-in. Sstress is not caused by an external event or situation or by someone being mean to us. Stress is caused by our response to that event/situation/mean comment.

Stress Awareness Month – Week 2 Top 3 Time Management Stress Hacks

This weeks theme is Time Management. Such a turn-off phrase. When I used to hear it in the corporate world, it made me want to yawn. The last thing I would consider was time management training. Yet it plays such an important part in stress management and we typically under-estimate its impact.

This weeks theme is Recovery – read on for my top three tips for increasing your potential recovery time?

Is It Time You Made A Career Change? Carol’s Story

We spend so much of our lives at work and yet study after study says we’re disengaged and disenfranchised. Whilst often this is about how we perceive things or because we accept the status quo rather than trying to drive positive change, sometimes it’s because we’ve outgrown the role or the company or we’ve been somewhere too long.

March Weekly Leadership Challenges No. 2 – The Selfless Leader

I’m Coaching two amazing guys at the moment. They’re in very different roles and yet the same major issue has surfaced for them both and it’s an increasingly common one amongst men.

March Weekly Leadership Challenges No. 1 – The Hard Task-Master

In my Executive Coaching sessions, I often work with very different leaders in different industries and different sized companies. However, interestingly, they often share similar leadership
challenges. Each week in March I’d, therefore, like to share a pattern I’ve spotted recently and ask you, as a leader, whether you share it too.  If so I’m going to set you a challenge for the week ahead to bring it into conscious awareness and take action to improve it.

Is It Time You Made A Career Change? Anna’s Story

Over the years I have worked with so many people who were clearly in the wrong job or had stayed in a company or role for too long. Lots of different reasons, however, the net results were always the same. It wasn’t good for them and it wasn’t good for their businesses either. Why Is It So Hard To Make A Career Change?

Is It Time You Made A Career Change?

Christmas and New Year are typically good times for reflection. Times when we think about what’s working well and less well in our lives, including our work or career. So, did you think 2019 was the year you were going to make a career change? And have you stepped back onto your hamster wheel started peddling furiously and – one month on – done nothing about it?!

Stress – The Hidden Derailer

What most people in the workplace recognise or label as stress is ‘overwhelm’ ie. when the demands placed upon them or their team members seem too much to cope with.
(Interestingly very often these demands are driven by ourselves, not by others – we put way too much pressure on ourselves – but that’s another story!)

My Personal Journey To Self-Esteem & Confidence – Part 3

I knew I needed something else to focus on which was home-based during this time. So I decided to undertake my Coaching accreditation with the Association for Coaching.
It was quite a challenging process but I’m so glad I did it. Only a small percentage of Coaches are accredited by a professional association as well as being certified. Knowing that I was one of them really boosted my confidence and somehow gave me the validation I needed to go back into the Corporate world as an Executive Coach.
