getting the best work life balance possible

I'm delighted to have been able to contribute to this article on the Virgin website, discussing how close relationships at work can help you achieve a better work life balance.  By having strong work relationships, you are able to better manage the stresses and strains of your work, and will not necessarily take it back home to your home environment.  This makes you more effective at work, and more grounded at home.

How To Do We get a better gender balance?

I was asked my thoughts on how we could achieve a better gender balance, when I attended the Womanthology Diversity Thought Leader Event in November.  The headline - we have to stop thinking that things will change while we keep doing the same things:

Things Need To Change

 

Why Do You Work?

Why do you work? I know that for pretty much everyone that will be to earn money, but given how much of our time it takes up, we also need to get some personal satisfaction or fulfilment as well.
But our expectations of what we will get out of work are all so different. Some will want status, power, control. Others will want the ability to be creative and fun.

Who Do I Work With?

The challenge with identifying your ideal clients is that it naturally starts to limit the potential people that you reach out to - instead of the "I'll talk to everyone!" approach, you begin to restrict who you work with - and that can feel both liberating and terrifying at the same time!

So who do I want to work with now? 

People, teams or businesses who:

- Are stuck, and know it;
- Have tried to solve their problems the usual way, and failed;
- Know that they have a blind spot, and need someone they trust to tell them what it is;
- Know they need to hear the hard truth and are ready to

Do you or anyone you know fit the bill? If so, let's talk!

Evolution

Evolution

13 years in the making ... the evolution of any business demands change. It needs a fresh look at what works and what doesn't, and the willingness to shift to a different path. But the core purpose, the driver behind what I do, has never changed - it is my due north that makes sure that any changes are accurately aligned and therefore sharpening my focus not diminishing it.
