  1. Reflection in your work role

    Reflection in your work role
    I recently did a journal for teachers to reflect on their work role. How many of us do this, reflect on our work? I wrote the journal looking at reflection from a teacher's role, what their experiences of the day were and how could they change areas for the next time. That made me think that people still have not...
  2. One to One online - benefits

    One to One online - benefits
    We are having a great deal of interest in our ability to adapt our training courses. Since the start of lockdown, we have been delivering online training, and we have learnt how to provide it correctly. It requires a particular skill set, and I am personally very proud of how we have adapted to accommodate. One thing that has particularly...
  3. We all have the same amount of TIME

    We all have the same amount of TIME
    Time is a precious resource to us all and for all organisations. It is one of the few levellers, as time is the same for all of us; no matter what our role in the organisation. It's just how people choose to use it that differs, whether a manager, team leader, supervisor or any other member of staff we all need...

    Presentation skills
    Public speaking is the most common of all phobias 75% of people suffer from speech anxiety, that is 3 out of 4 individuals suffer from anxiety when public speaking.

    Managing remotely tips
    We're in a situation we more and more of us are managing staff remotely. Before COVID-19 remote working was on the up, more and more people were working other than their normal workplace either at home or in a remote location.   As COVID continues, the reality is that it is likely to be the norm for many people in...

    Are your workforce highly motivated?
    In the current economic climate and as we come out of lockdown, it is essential that organisations (workforces) have effective leaders, who help the staff to be motivated. Not only will this make for a happier workforce, but it will lead to improved staff retention, recruitment and ultimately improved productivity; a successful business! The good news is that all organisations...
  7. Are you stuck in life?

    Are you stuck in life?
    Do you find yourself stuck in life? One of those questions you sometimes have to ask yourself as you face the day to day routine with no change. Some of us like this, the majority don’t, so why is this? Ask yourself the question what would you like to be different? Look at three areas in your life, career, life...

  9. Do the thing you fear most, FIRST

    Do the thing you fear most, FIRST
    It is such a natural thing to do, put something off because we are afraid of the outcome... Or is it the perceived outcome? Quite often the outcome is nowhere near as bad as we think.  I have spoken to many people about this at training events and without a doubt, everyone agrees. Is it not the case that what...

    Now is the time to communicate
    Well many of us have been in lockdown for some weeks now, and there is no doubt it has affected us in very different ways. Many people have struggled, and some people are (believe it or not) enjoying it! A recent survey by YouGov poll suggests many people see positives amid the crisis. One thing that is apparent now more...
