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!

    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...

  10. 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...
