Great Mental Fitness Series #Episode 2

By |2020-02-24T11:34:10+00:00February 24th, 2020|

This is my second interview for the ‘Great Mental Fitness’ Interview Series to help those currently suffering from mental illness as well as anyone who might suffer in future (1 in 4 working adults will suffer with this over the next 12 months). I wish to help others ideally avoid, or worse case, to recover from poor mental health, whilst becoming more productive and happier in life.

You can help by reading on, and if you like it, please share it so we can help more people achieve great mental health, or maybe even save lives...

Work Life Balance Podcast with James Miller

By |2020-02-24T11:33:31+00:00February 20th, 2020|

I have had the massive honour of recording a podcast with James Miller.

Have you ever took the time to examine your life to see if you are fulfilled? Usually, we forget to compartmentalize areas of our life, and we lump it all together and decide if it’s “good” or “bad.” In this episode, you will learn how to break down each category of your life and create a simple Graph of Fulfillment to see the areas in life where you are thriving and other areas on which you can improve.

Great Mental Fitness. Episode #1

By |2020-02-24T11:26:39+00:00February 10th, 2020|

With 1 in 4 people experiencing a Mental Health problem every year, Mental Health issues (which can take a very wide range of forms) are becoming more widely recognised, diagnosed and supported. But that’s not enough.

I have created this ‘Great Mental Fitness’ Interview Series to leverage my own experiences of mental illness and burnout recovery with other people’s experiences to help others.

Corporate wellbeing – the new approach to improved productivity

By |2020-02-24T11:27:35+00:00January 19th, 2020|

There has been significant ‘noise’ about ways to improve productivity in the workplace in recent months (and years), much of it focused on techniques designed to get more out of fewer resources (i.e. people), or using new and emerging technologies to automate basic tasks in order to save money by reducing employee headcount.

These approaches are, in many cases, all well and good.

What I learned recovering from burnout

By |2020-02-24T11:28:12+00:00January 8th, 2020|

In 2012, having spent 11 years developing my commercial business experience in the high pressure world of FTSE 100 regulated companies, during which time I’d become the youngest on record to complete a fast track management training programme, I decided to leave and set up my own business. My desire was to use my experience to help other businesses to grow and transform as a business adviser and mentor.

Why do we (mostly) post just the positive on social media?

By |2020-02-24T11:29:30+00:00July 11th, 2019|

Someone I know mentioned this a few weeks ago, and I've been pondering possible answers since. I'd love to hear your viewpoints in the comments thread below.

There might be different answers for business social media use versus personal use.

One of my theories is that maybe we are ashamed or embarrassed to share some of our problems publicly. Maybe we are fairly private as a person and assume others don't want to hear our 99 problems. After all, on a daily basis we all have stress and challenges to overcome, right?

Here’s an EPIC start to YOUR next week

By |2020-02-24T11:30:19+00:00May 30th, 2019|

Visualise a clear blue sky on an early Sunday evening.

You've had a great weekend that you don't want to end. Time with family, friends and your hobbies. Maybe some house and garden work ahead of a scenic walk and a BBQ in the sunshine?

Tomorrow being Monday, you're due at the office for another intense, busy week of work. You don’t want the weekend to finish.

Maybe you have this feeling sometimes? Or maybe frequently?

Effective planning – do you plan in the period, before it begins or both?

By |2020-02-24T11:30:51+00:00December 12th, 2018|

In my earlier corporate career and during the last 7 years running my own businesses, I've been shocked at how few individuals in both small and much larger companies plan before a new year begins. As a little Christmas token, here are six of my proven methods to get you ahead before 2019 begins!

For me it is essential to plan ahead before any year or performance period begins. Business for many of us is consistently tough and busy, so this is easier said than done, but it is very possible one small step at a time!
