How to Make 2018 Your Best Year Yet

As we approach the holiday season I wanted to wish you and yours a healthy, peaceful and happy time.  I always use the holiday period to think about the year ahead and do some planning.  So, I am wondering if you are also considering making some changes in your life in 2018?  Maybe you are considering changing career, starting your own business, becoming healthier and fitter, re-vitalising or changing your relationship or even filling a void left by children leaving home? Where ever you are now, the start of the year is a great moment to take stock and make…


What NLP can offer Managers Supporting Staff with Mental Health Issues

For many staff these days, there is no such thing as a lunch-break, e-mails come in at all times of the day and night and the laptop is routinely packed along with the holiday suitcases.  The impact of this ‘always-on’ culture and the pressures of work on staff are often avoided by managers unable to deal with the mental health issues that this environment can create.  The ultimate aim is to develop a culture where open and honest communication is encouraged and where support and respect are the norm. Yet, this is can be a huge challenge for many organisations…


Is Neuro Linguistic Programming Old Hat?

Recently, I was challenged after a key-note presentation I gave about the benefits of NLP and how it can change your life.  Someone came over and challenged me by saying ‘Isn’t NLP rather old hat these days?  I was rather taken aback as I have used NLP as my tool-kit for change with individuals and teams since I began my NLP journey in 1997.  However, this comment got me thinking. NLP is now 40 years and we have developed a whole raft of tools and techniques that can help anyone improve individual and team performance. These can be applied in…


Attitude 5: “I Am Good Enough”

For many people, believing in themselves can be their biggest challenge. Our beliefs act as an on/off switch in our brains yet they are often largely unconscious in that we may not be aware of them.  I call these ‘limiting beliefs’. For example, you may have a goal of starting your own business, so you study hard to develop the skills and abilities to enable you to do it well. You visualise that goal every day. You imagine what it will be like – what you will see, hear and feel inside when you have achieved your goal. Yet, if…


 Attitude 4: “I Am True to Myself”

I wonder what changes you would make in your life if you were being truly authentic to who you are at the core of your being?  Are you stuck in a job or career, relationship or place that is holding you back?  You know that you are not spending your time being, doing, having what you really want. Yet, you stay stuck in that place I call the ‘Grey Zone’.  It’s that comfortable yet uncomfortable place where you exist knowing that you could do so much more with your life.  The main thing keeping us stuck in a rut is…


Attitude 3: “I Know Who I Am”

This Attitude is all about finding out what you are passionate about, because doing so goes a long way towards helping you re-discover your sense of self and your love of life.  Or to help you discover it for the first time.  After years of prioritising partners, families and careers, many people lose track of who they are. It’s almost as if we have given so much of ourselves to others over the years that our true self has become diluted and, for some, unrecognisable. This can lead to a lack of confidence, assertiveness and independence that prevents us from…


Attitude 2: “I Create What I Want”

Now you’ve identified what you really want out of life by working through Attitude One ‘I Live My Life On Purpose’, it’s time to take your first steps towards making it a reality. This means you’ll need to take control of your thoughts and take responsibility for your own future. The power of thought Two of my favourite sayings are “thoughts become things” and “you can never be more than you believe is possible” and here they are especially apt, as the first step for many people is the realisation that there is more going on with their thoughts than…


8 Attitudes for Success

  As a business consultant, I have always enjoyed using models to simplify complex situations making them more manageable. Firstly, a model provides a framework to improve our chances of success and secondly, it presents practical approaches to help us to change our lives. Whilst I have been inspired by Stephen Covey’s model of the ‘7 Habits of Highly Effective People’, for many years I have wanted to create something that is relevant in today’s world and where I could add my own knowledge of NLP to develop a model of personal and professional change for you.  It is for…


Believe You Can – Conquering Limiting Beliefs

“This ability to conquer oneself is no doubt the most precious of all things sports bestows” Olga Korbut, Four-time Gymnastics gold medallist I have been mesmerised by the Olympics.  Each day we share the experiences of Olympians from every discipline you can imagine.  Yet they all have one thing in common.  Whether they are a synchronised swimmer or a marathon runner each person believes in the possibility of winning a gold medal.  However, what is important is that it is not just our abilities and talent that bring us success but whether we believe in our potential for success. This blog…


What’s the link between purpose, happiness and results in business?

I’ve recently had an opportunity to challenge my own purpose in life and to consider the interesting question of whether there is a connection in business (and life) between Purpose, Happiness and Results.I have been researching ideas by other writers such as Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, world famous psychologist who wrote the book ‘The State of Flow’ and the causes of happiness, academics such as Paul Hannam and coach Mickey Feher who recently wrote on a similar topic. I was shocked to find a survey by Gallup in 2013 found that a massive 71% of US workers are not engaged or actively disengaged…
