    management blog - not making time for your team
    As a manager or leader, it is so easy to get wrapped up in your world and your workload.  Of course, we need to focus on our workload, but you have to remember an essential part of any managers workload is their team. People you manage must come first! Without appropriate time being made available, then there is a danger that they...

    coaching blog - why waste energy on something negative?
    When something bothers us, or we get anxious about something, we waste an awful amount of energy focused on this. What a waste of time-wasting energy or worrying about a mistake. The focus can be unbalanced, and generally, people are focused on the negative aspects of their life and not the positive. Negativity works 100% of the time, so why...

    training blog - making mistakes can make you better if…
    One of the great things about delivering Train the Trainer courses is getting to see people’s faces light up when they get those proper “light-bulb” moments.  It’s a privilege to witness, but sometimes it doesn’t quite go according to plan and the moment can get filled with negativity.  In such times, we need to turn that negativity into positivity: In a recent...

    management blog - doing the course because you said so!
    I was delivering training recently when one of the delegates said to me he was on the course because I said he should do it!  When I asked further, he told me in a blog I mentioned about the fact that training managers, if they want to be effective, should really know how to train people. I believe this is true.  Realistically...

    coaching blog - what do you notice when you feel irritated?
    Have you ever noticed the direction you choose when you get irritated? The build-up, do you recognise what is happening in you. I always feel the tension in me when I start to get irritated; I look out for when it starts to build. You have to ask yourself what triggers this. Sometimes it may be your values; you feel...

    training blog - 5 great tips to get out of that training ‘rut’
    In my previous career, I had to assure training to make sure what was being delivered was fit for purpose. This meant I was lucky enough to see lots of different trainers deliver lots of different lessons, but it also meant I got to see things I didn’t expect or want to see… When we deliver training, we often put so...

    coaching blog - have you written your next chapter?
    All of us have a book to write, and we all could write plenty of chapters. What a great experience to do this to find how your journey has evolved and where you are today. There will be highs and lows, but overall the positive from it needs to be congratulated. Think about how much success you have had in...

    training blog - i’ve forgotten how to train
    Quite a lot of people on our Train the Trainer courses who deliver training tell us they won’t or don’t train exclusively; it’s usually a secondary job in addition to their other job(s).  When you have a forced break from training or deliver irregularly, it’s very easy for you to get skills fade.  But when you can train correctly, do you really...
