Self

Let's explore what makes us tick and how we present ourselves to the world.

Making a difference

We all want to feel we make a difference, don’t we? When we’re not sure that what we’re doing is making a difference, we feel powerless. We feel a lack of motivation, a lack of enthusiasm for what we are doing and don’t we sometimes even just give up?

Can You Run a Successful Business and Be True to Yourself? A Feminine Model of Business?

I’d better add a health warning to this post. I’ve just completed another RenewYou licensing event and once again been overwhelmed by the friendship and support so may just be a bit emotional…but I see nothing wrong with that. I’m a human, we emote. There’s been quite a bit of media-chat about women and friendship of late, mostly to the effect that women don’t make good friendships or look after each other in business.

Go Slow...Is It Time You Had a Top Up'?

I’ve been coaching quite a lot recently within organisations undergoing change. It’s tough if you’re the recipient of a major reorganisation, not least waiting to find out whether you have a job or not. Stress levels can rocket through the roof.

Go Slow... Take a Hike!

Sorry, did that sound rude? I mean, try to incorporate a little more walking into your life and see if that makes you feel better. But that’s not a catchy title!

Go Slow... 3 Tips for Managing Work Place Stress

It’s Friday and you’ve had a stressful week at work and are longing for the week end. Phew, thank goodness Friday is here and you dash home thankfully and very tired. But somehow the week end you had planned doesn’t quite cut the mustard. Your longed for rest and relaxation doesn’t materialise and you find yourself tetchy and irritated for much of the time.

Go Slow - Have a Defrag!

It sounds a bit rude, doesn’t it? And my apologies if you have landed on this page expecting some information about how to defrag your computer. It isn’t here; but tarry a while because what I am about to say might be of use…

What to do when expectation falls short.

Picture the scene, you've spent the best part of a year thinking ahead to your long awaited summer holiday. You've been working out, planning what you'll do when you're there, loaded up your Kindle, had all the waxing, pedicures and everything else done and you're just so ready and up for it.

How do you set your life up?

It's easy to go through the motions of your life. One day feels much like another and suddenly you notice you feel like Shirley Valentine talking to the wall or the meteorologist in Groundhog Day who's stuck on repeat. Where do you start when you want to somehow begin again?

Welcome! Get Ready to Play!

PSST! Style is never really about the clothes. It’s how the clothes make you feel. It’s the woo-hoo they bring out in you. Like Glinda the Good Witch from the Wizard of Oz said, “You had the power all along.” Sometimes you just need a pair of ruby slippers to remind you.
