Slice of ssshhh

By |December 22nd, 2014|Business, Career, Life|0 Comments

It’s that time of year again.  Can you believe we are here already?  I remember my parents commenting on how the years went faster as they got older and now in my 39th year I could not agree more.  I also catch myself saying things that my folks do too! There is something about this time of year.  Time for reflection, calm and a slice of ssshhh as my kids have come to know it.. […]

Reflection – checking your rear view mirror

By |November 26th, 2014|Business, Career, Life|0 Comments

  When you are driving do you use your mirrors?  Do you check for oncoming traffic, see what may be approaching you from all angles?  Are you aware of the journey you have made so far? The reflection stage of coaching is a vital piece of the goal setting (and achieving) puzzle.  It enables you to see what ‘is really going on’ for you. Drivers that do not look in their mirrors could have accidents or setbacks that add further time to their journey. […]

Creating Boundaries – creating space

By |November 4th, 2014|Business, Career, Life|0 Comments

Who would have thought my new fence wood inspire this blog post – see what I did there!   For the 3 years we have lived in this property we have had our boundary exposed on one side of the house.  This meant that when sitting down for dinner we would have people take a short cut through our garden – hey  they may as well joined us at the table! Building a new fence means we have a fully enclosed wrap around garden now to both the back and side of our  house – but more importantly it has created a safe space for the kids to play in, a sense of space for us at mealtimes and a boundary people have to acknowledge.

Three years in business – the toddler years

By |September 16th, 2014|Business, Career, Life|0 Comments

ABC – easy as 1,2,3 right? YAY! I made it to three years – I think I feel the same about that as a mother as well as a business owner. Deciding to leave my job and fly solo when I had a one and three year old was a bold move but to then relocate to another City a few months after?  I perhaps did not anticipate how much change I was prescribing our family! I am proud to declare my business has reached those three-nager years.  I have worked with clients all over Australia and the UK and am so grateful to everyone that has chosen to work with me to achieve their goals.

A tag line – define your brand

By |September 13th, 2014|Business, Career|1 Comment

When we think of tag lines we normally think of companies.  Big name followed by tag line.  It helps them define their brand and relay their message to the masses. So I have been thinking about this a lot lately with both my business coaching clients and career coaching clients. What is your tag line?  How can the people you are meeting or interacting with, learn more about your brand in an instant. […]

Escaping Corporate Carnage

By |September 1st, 2014|Business, Career|0 Comments

There is a trend with my coaching clients right now. They are often women in their late 20’s early 30’s. They have worked for a business for a few years and climbed the ranks – quickly. Something is missing. They are feeling unfulfilled. They want to explore setting up their own thing – even if they have no idea what that thing may be. One thing is for sure – they want to escape the corporate role and responsibilities and dream of creating a job or career that is immediately fulfilling. […]

Qualities of a Coach

By |June 24th, 2014|Business, Career, Life|0 Comments

I recently ran a question through Linkedin about what things were important to consider when hiring a coach.  I was keen to understand what qualities were needed but also to understand the expectation of the person engaging in a coaching relationship. There were a few things that I expected to see listed but also a few surprises so here I thought I would help you consider what may be of importance before reaching out and getting in contact with me.

One word – focus on 2014

By |December 24th, 2013|Business, Career, Life|1 Comment

  Thirty Five percent of people set New Year resolutions but only 23% see them through.   Those that know me really well know I do not believe in setting resolutions.  I see them as a big fat way to set your self up for failure.  Why put yourself through that when you can hone in on one word?  Yes.  One word to enable you to stay on track and focused.   Seems easier right?  But the process of getting there is a little harder.  You need to think through your year, reflect and notice patterns. […]

Skills for a new generation of workers.

By |September 18th, 2013|Business, Career|0 Comments

Generation Y have had a bad wrap over the last few years.  They are the game changers, the fidgets, they want more and want it now.  They are the digital generation that have a fresh new perspective on life and  continually question WHY. I recently presented to the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia about the importance of being a Career Climber and not a Career Plodder.   As part of the event I was invited to be on a panel of successful career climbing GenY students/employees. What an incredible bunch of people.  The most amazing thing about this group of people, as themes, was their curiosity and commitment to their careers. […]
