  1. 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...
  2. 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...

    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...
  4. Classroom 1:1 to Online Trainer – My 5 Top Tips

    Classroom 1:1 to Online Trainer – My 5 Top Tips
    If, like me, you’ve mainly delivered training in groups, face to face, or 1:1, a change all of a sudden to deliver online sessions may be quite daunting!  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been involved in plenty of meetings, and 1:1’s online and never had any real problems but delivering training online?  I much prefer face to face, but recent...
  5. Low Self-Esteem Is Destructive

    Low Self-Esteem Is Destructive
    I think this is such a vast area that seems to be kept hidden in people’s closets. Lots of people struggle with low self-esteem; it is a hindrance to many. So, what is it? It is a subjective evaluation of your own worth. It creates self-beliefs that hold you back. Low self-esteem affects so many people and creates problems for...

    We Will Succeed...
    As the world continues on the most significant economic and most destructive health crisis, our generation has known. Our Queen came out with a powerful message yesterday; she reinforced a key message about not giving up about being positive about the future. Our Queen, of course, comes from a different time; she experienced real horror. The Queen lived through the...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. Dealing With Adversity

    Dealing With Adversity
    What an appropriate title for these unprecedented times. What is adversity? What does it mean to all of us individually? There is a cycle that people do fall into the trap off. That is when faced with a tough situation (the adversity) we create a belief (usually negative), then the consequence is negative. You can change that cycle if you...
  10. Get a Grip!

    Get a Grip!
    As we enter a new phase of the crisis we are starting to have limitations placed on our freedom particularly on things that we take for granted and that are a habit in that we don't think about what we are doing; it's a habit. We're being told to limit our gathering in groups and to keep a minimum distance...
