Next Point!

(2) Comments | Posted July 29, 2014 | 3:50 AM

Last year while watching Wimbledon on TV, a well known American tennis player mentioned how, after losing a game, her first thought was 'Next point.' I was rather taken with this attitude/approach. It kind of sums up how I coach - I focus on what's next, rather than what's happened....

Why Bother About Your Personal Brand?

(0) Comments | Posted June 10, 2014 | 4:43 AM

So why bother about your Personal Brand? It's a little like saying, Why bother ensuring that I sleep well, or find ways to de-stress? It's to do with behaviours and actions that touch upon our desire for improvement; actions that enable us to raise our self esteem. As you know,...

The Fashion Dilemma...

(0) Comments | Posted May 6, 2014 | 11:09 AM

Recently, I've been asked to present workshops and seminars that focus on fashion. Initially, I was a little reticent - I left the retail fashion business in 1994. I felt that as I was no longer in the loop, therefore, was concerned my contribution would be rather tepid. However, I...

(0) Comments | Posted April 19, 2014 | 4:43 AM

Each of us has a Personal Brand. My version of Personal Branding encompasses our Inner Brand: values, personal integrity, self esteem, and our Outer Brand: appearance, attitude, behaviour. Is there anything you'd like to change, improve or perhaps delete from your Inner and Outer Brands?

Perhaps you'd like to...

Being Your Best Self - It Begins With Self Awareness

(2) Comments | Posted March 17, 2014 | 6:54 AM

I recently presented a Personal Branding Workshop to a mixed of corporate employees. The event lasted about ninety minutes. For the most part, the group seemed receptive and interested in my approach. In saying that, I detected a little cynicism in the room. And although I'm used to experiencing mixed...

Life Isn't What We Make It, It's What It Makes of Us

(0) Comments | Posted February 25, 2014 | 6:30 AM

The saying, 'Life is what we make it' has some truth attached to it. However, I believe more accurately, life's about what it makes of us. Although, at times, my life has been what I've made it, at other times, it's been what life has made of me. Simply said,...

What I Learned Recently...

I presented a one-day workshop last week. The participants were all psychologists. A new group of people for me. To be frank, before I presented I felt a tad intimidated. However, the day went well... I think. At this event, I garnered some lessons, insights and epiphanies. Here's a selection...

This post was inspired by my wife, Kate.

Once in a while, usually the weekend, I indulge myself in a piece of cake. Last week, Kate brought home a slice of Victoria sponge, a favorite of mine. As she placed the cake on the kitchen table, she explained the...

Communication -- Yes, That Word Again

(0) Comments | Posted November 15, 2013 | 12:47 PM

As far as communication is concerned, you've probably heard it all before. Furthermore, you've probably done a lot of it too. However, you know what they say, it's repetition that enables new habits to become sticky. So, much of what you are about to read is not new. However, some...

Good Taste: It's All in the Details

(4) Comments | Posted July 25, 2013 | 5:05 AM

In my experience, the whole discussion about good taste is constantly under siege. I mean, who's to say what represents good or bad taste? To a degree, good taste can be an outcome of family conditioning, or having a good taste 'eye', like a gift or talent - something one...

Communicate In Color

Over many years, we've all been told that communication, at its best, can solve many of life's mysteries. And whilst I agree with that belief, it still strikes me as a little odd that we're as good at communicating with one another as we could be. You know the sort...

Letting It All Hang Out

Some of you may recall the time when "letting it all hang out" was often a topic of conversation -- it suggested we hold nothing back. So often, when I'm speaking at group events, I hear people say, "Well, they'll just have to take me or leave me, because that's...
