Perhaps you’re stepping back, perhaps you […]
Are your Values in Overdrive or Conflict?
Are your values in overdrive or conflict? One of the very first jobs I had was a ‘pinch me, I must be dreaming’ kind of job. Totally unreal and still to this day one of my most favourite ever. In fact as I get a little older, it’s the one I look back at now […]
