Conversation is so much more than social chitchat. It is a fundamentally unique part of being human and of being in relationships with each other. In conversation we meet ourselves at new edges of insight and understanding and when we discover what lies beyond those edges, everything shifts.”

Are you letting your Leader be Human too?

Are you letting your Leader be Human too?

This has been on my mind for some time so I hope this short post will spark some conversation for you. My work revolves around the question of what really defines leadership.

What will you do with the Gift of Time?

I am so enjoying The 100 Year Life by Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott. It’s a well-researched and easy to read presentation of how living longer invites new questions about life and work. The traditional three-phase life (learn, work, retire) is being replaced with a multi-stage life which requires new perspectives on the choices we make and how...

Our conversation is quality time you likely don’t get anywhere else. It’s for you to reflect, re-energise and refocus. It’s for you to challenge yourself and shift what’s not working for you.

You find freedom. It starts with questions and listening. It turns to action. You live and lead inspired.
With more than two decades coaching leaders, teams and individuals, around the globe, I see that the power of pure coaching lies in the human essence of the conversation. There’s a magic to what emerges in a quality conversation one person at a time. Modern times call it coaching. Ancient times call it inner wisdom. The master coach calls it out in each of us, inviting awareness, insight, learning, growth and the personal power to take action, sometimes beyond your wildest dreams.
