Have you ever been afraid of being criticised?

Have you ever been afraid of being criticised? We can spend a lot of our energy trying to fit in when we could spend the same amount of energy trying to stand out! One of the reasons we don't like to stand out is a fear of criticism. Which is often tied to the perfectionist in us. When we do [...]

Overcome stress in your next difficult conversation!

This week’s video about overcoming stress is coming from Boston Airport where I had some time to reflect on how many times we are overwhelmed or stressed out at work or in our personal life, often as a result of dealing with difficult conversations. Are you familiar with the concept of 'clearing the cache' on your computer?! Do not fear, [...]

Have you ever failed?!

Hello from Switzerland! Did you know that alot of the valleys here are created by glaciers? When glaciers fall apart they move and create these incredible pathways in a seemingly destructive way. It's called scouring, disrupting the landscape and in doing so they leave incredible valleys! Now in our own lives, be they professional or personal, we have so many of [...]

You deserve more than the ‘F’ word!

  Bonjour from Paris! Growing up in Australia, Paris always held a romantic allure! The phrase 'Ça va bien' or 'I am fine', 'everything is fine' is a common response when someone asks how you are here.  For me, whether in the romance of French or in English this 'F' word -'fine'-  is one of the most frustrating words. It feels like [...]

Are you a perfectionist?!

 I am a perfectionist!! My perfectionism has been absolutely rampant this week! I'm in the process of finalising my speaker show reel (see sneak peak preview pic to the left...!) and I have been absolutely crippled with every decision being the 'be all and end all', over analysing everything, feeling a level of stress that’s just low enough to [...]

Two simple questions to help overcome self-doubt!

If you’ve ever felt there are things holding you back or that you don’t have the experience to excel in your career (I know I did!) then this week’s video is for you! I was invited to join a panel recently at the stunning IOD (Institute of Directors) building in London. As an expert on  "rule breaking for women” (who [...]

Four steps to prepare you for life’s changes

I am coming to you from beautiful Stowe, Vermont today.  I’ve spent the last couple of days here with some early career talent, ending their two year journey, which has been absolutely fantastic to be a part of! It’s been so rewarding to watch their journey through different changes, in role, in management, in different parts of the business, some [...]

How to get better at something!

In Boston for a little bit of work and a little bit of play and what better place to film than the Boston Public Library! It’s absolutely magnificent. I filmed in the Children’s Library section and may or may not have been asked if I was indeed there with any children! I was luckily! Fun fact: This was the first [...]

Why self-promotion is hard!

How can you start to have better quality conversation about the great stuff that YOU are contributing? Why is it so hard to talk about the good stuff and promote yourself? Whether it’s great feedback from a peer, an incredible client testimonial, or praise from a manager, compliments on the birthday cake we made….why do we cringe at the thought [...]

How to succeed without being overwhelmed by pressure

Hello from New York City! This trip, I managed to fit in a couple of days ‘play’ before my week of coaching! Yay! I love this city – the energy is palpable, people walk fast, they talk fast, they live fast! The pressure is high but so are the rewards. In fact - a 15 year old just won over [...]

Why ‘High Definition You’?

I have been getting tons of questions from you all about why we are called High Definition You. Spoiler alert, it’s not about high definition eyebrows! Have you seen my eyebrows?! No! It might have something to do with a TV, a footballer and some blades of grass! But I’ve already said too much! Check out this week’s video to see [...]

3 ways to make better decisions

Eeek – making decisions? Chicken or fish, red dress or green, elevator or stairs, change jobs or stay put? From the big to the small decisions, if you had to calculate the number of decisions that you have already made today, what would the number be? 10, 15, 100, 1000. Could you tell me which leg you use first to put on your pants?! Probably not without some thought…yup, you’re thinking about it now, aren’t you?! [...]

What are you proud of?

It is ALL about Pride in London at the moment. So this week’s video (below) is all about the idea of being proud. Here, in London, 'Pride' is very much focussed on the LGBTQI community (we have a big festive celebration coming up!). And, funnily enough, one of the programs we deliver at High Definition You is the PRIDE program, [...]

How to keep it together when the going gets tough!

15th June was Power of the Smile Day - a whole 24 hours dedicated to the involuntary contraction of the zygomatic major muscle! Smiling is actually an incredibly powerful way of hacking your brain when things get tough. There have been a number of those moments for me recently. Moments where I feel physically sick at what’s just happened, moments where I [...]

Press ‘pause’ on your inner critic today!

Did you know that the first day of June was Say Something Nice Day?! When was the last time you said something nice….. to YOURSELF?! That little voice inside our head in there for a primal reason, but sometimes unfortunately, it is more of a critic than a voice of reason. Case in point – picture me, last weekend, it’s my [...]
