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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
