It's time for a change, time is of the essence, time is money. We're all obsessed with time. Whether we don't have enough of it, or we don't know how to best spend it, in work and in life, we often waste a lot of it. Our business lives are particularly clogged, but a leading mind in business coaching, Michael Bungay Stanier, has the solution. His solution streamlines working hours into uber productive pockets of time that in turn bring greater results and impact.

After reading that I was most definitely offended! Now, you may not know me, you may have met me, been on my training, tapped into a free webinar or just know me through my blogs and weekly you think I would ever put anyone in jeopardy?

What Can We Learn From Olympic Coaches?

Most people possess a model of the world, a script for how things should be. What stops innovation is the lack of willingness to double back and revisit our scripts and determine whether they are helpful or not... it's not working harder but working smarter which is what double loop thinking requires us to do.

I have a confession to make.... I am impulsive......Not just spontaneous. But speed of light, slave to my desires impulsive. Sometimes it works well for me - I nab a bargain at an antique fair, respond quickly and intuitively to requests for help or discover an exciting off piste local attraction on a meandering walk in a new town or city on holiday.

Reshaping Behaviour and Reframing Success

Colin Hunter | Posted 26.07.2016 | UK

Busy. Very busy. That's how most business leaders would describe themselves. Perhaps there's just enough spare time to down a coffee, scan a Metro and start another 12-hour day. So busy, in fact, they don't have time to explore the connection between well-being, self-belief and success. But this is something Denis Gorce-Bourge is hoping to change.

For many of us, the arrival of summer means excitedly counting the days until we down tools and set up the out-of-office before we head off to warmer shores for a fortnight in the sun. For those with a flying phobia, however, that dream holiday can become a nightmare plagued with anxiety and fear.

The hardest part of letting go of a relationship is actually accepting that you had a part to play in the demise of it. This may seem like a really difficult thing to do if you are in the early stages of a break up but it will be the most freeing thing you will do to move on.

How You Scare Away the Money

Your body is the first to know whether you have any blocks around money. It will know that faster than your brain (no wonder, as it has millions of nerve cells perceiving information!). You will feel discomfort or a liberating sensation when thinking about spending it in a particular way.

Here Be Dragons (Step Out of Your Comfort Zone)

What it doesn't see, is that while there may be dragons in the uncharted territory, so might there be lands filled with riches and opportunities. For the brave and the bold, those riches and opportunities are there for the taking, and with the right resources the dragons are there to be slain.

Feel the Fear, and Do It Because of It

I have been feeling a little disconnected of late. I'm self-employed, and as many people who work for themselves will understand, that can be quite isolating. Not being one to sit around wallowing in self-pity, I decided to create a collaborative events and coaching company with a friend.

I believe in the ability - the inevitability in fact - of people to change. Our brains are learning all the time. Learning, analysing, making sense, incorporating the new learning, creating new beliefs and thoughts then causing new behaviours.

Why You Struggle to Finish Your To-Do List

Stop yourself right there. Don't let yourself go down into a spiral of negativity as the deeper you go, the harder it will be to get out. Stop yourself before you even start on that downwards path. You know you're working hard and you're getting things done. You just struggle to get them done in the amount of time you'd like to get them done in.

Allowing your employees to have input in the business is also a sign that you respect them. You also need to accept the fact that there are some things where your employees are better than you. Giving people credit for their skills is one of the ways you can earn respect.

Given that everyone is different and we all have our own ideas about what constitutes personal growth, it stands to reason that some people would benefit from one form of therapy while other people would benefit from another form of therapy.

I am seeing the huge value in the reminder the eclipse offered that we are absolutely part of a bigger picture. That there are systems at play that are bigger than the concerns of our own individual lives.

You Are Not Your Thoughts!

You are not the thinker of your thoughts (that would be the lizard brain), you're the one who hears them. You're the one that's left when all the shitty thoughts about yourself that have been learned (incorrectly) along the way because of the life experiences your brain has been exposed to are stripped away.

If having kids has taught me anything, it's the utter unpredictability of any given moment. Unwittingly they have taught (or forced - depending on the day) me to accept that I am not entirely in control.
