    Hello. I'm back in the UK. As you can see, no snow here. Back in the UK after an absolutely amazing two weeks in the Alps. Just unbelievable.

    Starting to lose your focus on your goals? Read on.....
    It is that time in January when your Goals that have been set as part of your New Years Resolution start to drift, the mid-January slump. Why is this? Well, the reason is motivation and recognising the differences between Extrinsic or Intrinsic Goals. When we set goals with Extrinsic motivation, for example, I want to look better for my partner...
  4. When training works

    When training works
    As a trainer, one of the most fantastic things you can experience is seeing or hearing that your training is working. If we are honest, it's the reason why we do this job. It's about delivering training that works and has improved the way people work. Like you, I have attended my training courses when I have thought, what is...
  5. Reading powerpoint slides isn't training

    Reading powerpoint slides isn't training
    The advent of computer technology has revolutionised the way we get our message across, and in training, there is no doubt that one of the most controversial is PowerPoint. I remember the first time I witnessed a PowerPoint presentation; I thought, wow, this looks good. But, of course, please remember that we had Overhead Projector Slides (OHP) before we had...
  6. Adversity bucket list

    Adversity bucket list
    Ever thought about building your own “Bucket List” for dealing with your Adversity? I recently did a set of workshops in Dealing with Adversity, a compelling reflective set of workshops. After exploring our life journeys and the Adversity, we have all had to deal with, I felt it would be a good idea that the group would benefit from creating...

  8. How our Life Scripts affect our relationships

    How our Life Scripts affect our relationships
    It is a fascinating experience reflecting on yourself and how you react in different situations with different people. What is even more fascinating is where it comes from. Every one of us is unique, and exploration with our thoughts, feelings and behaviours is just the most incredible journey. I have had some amazing sessions with clients, and seriously the WOW...
  9. Why is Coaching Supervision so important and needed?

    Why is Coaching Supervision so important and needed?
    Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is essential if, as a coach, we want to develop. There are so many coaches and different coaching certificates that it can be challenging to decide where to go to receive quality executive coaching. But, most importantly, where do coaches go to develop further? I think it is essential to understand what a good supervisor can...
  10. Share those priceless “nuggets” of learning

    Share those priceless “nuggets” of learning
    As a trainer, we have a unique opportunity, sometimes a “once in a lifetime” chance to pass on what we know so that others can learn.  When we pass these on, it gives them a chance to use that knowledge or skill and even then, for them to pass it on. Imagine the effect of this in Business?  What would...
