Help! My team is broken

Teams are made of people, but you know that right? Sometimes people just don’t get along and I guess you probably know that too. It isn’t always an explosive or an obvious personality clash that can be the problem. Sometimes the difficulties in a team are covert, and...

Are you really getting to grips with resilience?

Resilience has become a real buzzword but are organisations truly investing in building resilience for their employees or are they just paying lip service to it? Building resilience goes beyond self-care. It starts with self-awareness. If it’s done right, it can lead...

I am celebrating all the women in my life

It’s International Women’s Day, and our feeds are going to be flooded with inspirational women and quotes. Overkill? Never! It’s so important to celebrate the women in our lives. Don’t get me wrong it’s also important to say thanks to the men too, but not today. Today...

This is a great question to contemplate. I was asked this at a recent workshop I was facilitating. I think it would be mad to think that we can go through life without losing our sh*t. We are human and the pressures of work and family life can get simply too much....
