I Choose Better

I have had the pleasure of working with a vast array of people and organisations. Typically, they have one thing in common: they want to be the best version of themselves. To me, this ambition is admirable, even useful. I think it indicates a deep desire to be of high service and achieve extraordinary standards.   But what does ‘best’

I Choose Useful

As a kid at school, oh so many years ago, I sat through many lessons learning “stuff” about “things”. A lot of the time, I didn’t understand what I was learning, and I wasn’t really sure why I should care. I’m sure you have felt this uncertainty at some point, too. It’s that nagging, underlying questioning of, “Why do I

I Choose Positive Intent

COVID-19 has added so many extra layers of complexity to our lives.  That’s why, more than ever, we need to communicate from a place of positive intent. What do I mean? Well, there are two sides to this. Firstly, I offer that we should all consider that any piece of communication we receive comes from a place of positive intent. Some

I Choose the Light

I have been talking with a bunch of people over the past weeks as they work to embrace this current complexity. These folk were mainly CEO’s and Senior leaders. One of the conversations we have been having is how remote working has been going… you know, the digital thing… I have to say that the overwhelming feedback from the people

I Choose to Level Up my Conversation

I have a confession……  Somewhere over the last 3-4 years, I have become a watcher. You know the ones, they sit and observe, the ‘studiers’ of things. In my case humans, humanity, and the systems we make. Not quite sure when it exactly happened but as I am comfortable with this gift I have received, maybe even earned. But that’s for

Beyond the Horizon – Part 2

We talked last week about what lies Beyond the Horizon…..Part 1. The reality that our horizon gives us the freedom to roam. Were we can feel comfortable. Just as children in the schoolyard see and know their boundaries, and feel safe to run in that space, our horizon provides boundaries we can see and work within. We often create boundaries

Connection

I had the pleasure this weekend of driving to the Sunshine Coast (QLD). On the side of the road was a mobile message board. You know the ones, they flash messages at drivers to inform them of some requirements ahead. The first message was Follow road signs. The second message was Not your GPS. Apart from a healthy chuckle, it made me consider

Beyond the Horizon

All of us carry a space in our mind where we can see what’s happening, what’s happened, and what might happen. This is all inside our space, our horizon. We all see to our own horizon, it’s a limit, a boundary we establish. This is normal, and to be honest, it can be quite beneficial. It allows us to make

The One Thing

In our last conversation, we talked about the News and the New. If you need a refresh, have a look here  and then jump back in with us. I don’t mind waiting… The idea captured in The News and the New is essential for us as leaders. Whether that be you leading in the home, leading in the workplace, or leading an

The New and the News

It’s impossible to miss the context of what’s going on right now.  The unfolding complexity that is gripping our world with its need for attention, for focus.  Much like the screaming child on the bus that turns all heads, these tremors of change are sweeping our world, from the macro to the micro. Each new day seems to bring a whole range
