Today in conversation with a leader, she mentioned how everyone else was to blame – different team members, partners to the business – she took no responsibility for the part that she plays in it all. I called it out pretty quickly and we had a VERY good heart to heart. Self–awareness is beyond critical […]
Stop Avoiding Difficult Conversations
Whether it’s at work managing a team, leading a business, talking to your superiors, working with clients, at home with a partner, or dealing with children, these types of conversations are around us all day long. Are you needing to have a conversation with someone? It could be a business discussion or something personal. It’s […]
Bravery at the Front
“She must be fearless” my brother James said. “Actually she’s not” I replied. On Anzac Day, Lucy my 11-year-old rose early, the alarm ringing at 5.45 am. She’d been up for half the night, nerves taking hold. Each year for the last few years, she’s committed to playing The Last Post at 6 am and […]
Getting to Goal
What does it take to get to goal? What does it mean for you to get to goal? In Weightwatcher’s world – it’s about hitting the number that you’d stated you wanted to get to at the beginning of the program. Back in Sept. I put a number into the app, wrote some reasons why […]
Keeping your Zen On!
At the moment, it’s all pretty stressful! Whether you’re in iso, back to work ‘as if it’s business as normal’, maybe you’re remote and back on teams/zoom or perhaps you’ve been doing the January juggle with kids and work – it’s full on. No matter what the ‘current scenario’ looks like for you; your self-care […]

Anyone else love this time of year and getting the planning tools out and into action? Whilst most of us have best intentions of doing it at the end of the year in preparation for the new year, you’re certainly not alone, if you haven’t got the plan for ’22 all sorted yet. Particular as […]
Is it Fact or Feeling?
Ever find yourself getting caught up rehashing a situation from work, its 3am and it’s still playing out in your head? Or getting worked up over something in the middle of the day, that distracts you from the to-do list, taking action etc. My client Lisa used to have it happen quite a bit. Till […]
Limping or Limboing? Wrapping up 2021
So it’s a funny time of year, some businesses amping up for the festive season, some industries work through and others begin the wind down where everything stops and everyone takes a break. Some of us are feeling smashed and exhausted after a huge 12 months, others revitalised and refreshed…and some of us, probably not […]
Retaining, Training or Harnessing Talent
There are a lot of conversations about the mass resignation happening in the US. Will Australia face it too? Has it started already? Some businesses and industries are struggling to find people and fill roles. Some businesses are slicing and dicing to be leaner and meaner than ever before, regardless of longevity, loyalty and commitment […]
Do you have a PQ Powered Culture?
Did you know only 20% of teams ever achieve 80% of their potential? Is your team one of the 20% of High Performers or one of the 80% that achieve less? A bit less or perhaps a lot less. Many business leaders share their numbers with us. How well the business is doing (or not). […]
