Quiet Please

Yesterday we hosted a meeting for 12 of Snowy's C-suite in our new home.   It's a thing they do to get out of the office a couple of times a year, go somewhere a bit different and plan and plot for the year/s ahead. When Snowy told me he'd offered our new home as...

More specificity please

There is no doubt Queen Elizabeth II had impact. People have been referring to her 'quiet power' and her ability to keep going and the saying and embodiment of  "never explain, never complain" and a myriad of other impactful phrases. This is the thing about...

Half mast

It was with sadness last night that we learned of the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, our nation's Queen. For us Brits, this is a sad day.  I feel at half-mast too, just as all our flags are flying.   Of course there's always change...

Decision Alchemy

I last read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho about 10 years ago.  I remember I loved it then and - at the same time - couldn't remember how the story evolved. "Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who...

Show up when you’re O-O-O

When you’re “Out of the Office” just how “Out” of the office are you?  And do you manage others' expectations whilst you are (including your own?) With the holiday season upon us, this is a timely way to plan your exit strategy and still look after your...

Tender In Mind

Something which occurred to me this week was how helpful it is to put yourself in the position of a learner again.   We so often feel disadvantage if we don't 'know' something but hey - we know much less than we think we know and that's the point. It...
