Are you a 'people pleaser'? Do you feel like it's important to put others needs first? Does the idea of saying 'No' to someone fill you with dread and anguish? It may feel uncomfortable but "No." is a full sentence. I get it, sometimes it's more comforting to say; "No, but...", "No, ah, perhaps, ah, yes OK" or [...]
This virtual world we are living in is creating all sorts of different experiences for us. We are learning to get more comfortable with technology and being on camera (I have always loved being on camera but I get it... not everyone does!) This week I am giving you a super simple but super powerful technique to rapidly switch your [...]
Watch the video (3mins) to find out what it is! Your brain is always listening and it uses what you put in to decide what it pays attention to. Give it the liberty to focus on what's important. There is such an incredible amount of big, life-changing things happening in the world right now. It can feel overwhelming and engulfing [...]
Zoom playdates, Zoom birthdays, Zoom team huddles, back-to-back Zoom meetings all equates to Zoom fatigue! (This sentence was NOT sponsored by Zoom... perhaps you have a little Skype, WebEx, Microsoft Teams, BlueJeans or HouseParty in there too!?) So, why does this new digital world make you so exhausted? What does it do to your brain? And what can you do [...]
Are you an over thinker? Do you leave a meeting or conversation and analyse everything that was said, or everything you could have said or everything they didn't say or what you could have responded with etc etc etc...? Maybe, just maybe…you’re an over thinker, like I used to be and you may even be delving in to the realms [...]
Have you ever had an AHA moment? You know that exciting moment when you learn something new, when you suddenly just ‘get it’ and it all makes such sense that you almost can’t believe you didn’t see it before? When that answer to that previously incomprehensible problem or concept just ‘comes together’? Researchers at MedUni Vienna’s Center for Medical Physics and Biomedical [...]
Do you sometimes wish you were just a bit more confident? I get it. I spent many, many, many years with incredibly low self confidence and with so much doubt in my choices. I have spent a lot of time working on that and researching it - I’ve studied neuroscience, the science of human behaviour, trained as a coach etc [...]
I thought I could do it all at once. I thought multi-tasking made me super efficient. I was wrong! Hot on the heels of last week's video on busyness (see: https://youtu.be/mZxXOFYzTcM) I am on a mission to empower you to get out of the overload and part of that is to get you stop you "multi"-tasking! Counter intuitive for [...]
Hello from Paris! I just get so much joy from coming to this city. I've just spent two amazing days here with my coach, and my coaching group. (Yes, I have a coach. I highly encourage you to get a coach as well!) It was a full couple of days and I could say that I was busy but I [...]
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 [...]
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, [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
