    Online Bitesize, our unique idea
    We decided to break our online courses into three categories.

  2. 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...
  3. Now is the time to communicate

    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...
  4. Positive Reflection and Action

    Positive Reflection and Action
    As we enter another week of lockdown, I wanted to ask you a simple question. What have you done so far? Of course, many of you will be in the front line. You will be working either as a hero in the NHS or looking after vulnerable people in a care setting. Or possibly you could be working in retail...
  5. Why writing journals are fantastic for change.

    Why writing journals are fantastic for change.
    Both Ralph and I both have benefitted from writing journals and know they work and how they work. We advertise journaling on all our courses, training, coaching and management courses encouraging everyone to work on something personal to them. Life is all about continuous change and growing yourself to be the best you can be. Due to the COVID-19 weeks...
  6. Saying Thank You

    Saying Thank You
    Saying thank you is something many of us are conditioned to do from a very young age. "Say thank you", I remember saying to my son when he was very young when someone gave him something or did something for him. We condition our children to do it from a very young age. It doesn't matter what role you do...
  7. Thinking & Acting Positively

    Thinking & Acting Positively
    Yesterday we heard Jenny Harries; the UK Deputy Chief Medical Officer suggest that we could be in 'lockdown' for 6-months. I am sure this prospect gave you a very negative feeling. It certainly did for me, and my first thoughts were how can we cope with this. Like many small businesses in the world this would be a significant impact...
  8. Thinking Differently - This is how we get through this

    Thinking Differently - This is how we get through this
    The last few weeks have changed the way we live our lives, looking around I see people in shock really from denial (it's only a cold) to being afraid where you see people panicking (buying things they don't need). Of course, this is perfectly normal, and there is nothing wrong with you, it's just not very useful. Schools are closing...
  9. Be Kind - a positive trait, especially today

    Be Kind - a positive trait, especially today
    We are in unprecedented times and no doubt the next few months are going to be a massive strain for us, from a health point of view and an economic standpoint, our world is about to change.  We have decided to change our format for today's blog, over the coming weeks we will have some changes going on, including some...
  10. Five steps for effective time management

    Five steps for effective time management
    I really love delivering training on time management.  It is a subject I know many people have problems with, it is an easy trap to fall into.  Remember we all have the same amount of time it is how we deal with the time we have that matters. Ok, five steps for really effective time management: Identify Time Bandits – Time...
