    The Top Tunes That Prevent Career Change

    October 07,2016 / experience / 0 Comments

    If you’ve been thinking about or working towards a positive career change, it might help to have a heads up on the top thought patterns that prevent people from making a concrete change. These thoughts can act like tunes in our head, set to repeat, replaying over and over and causing doubt, procrastination and a sense of futility. They encourage us to give in and assume its game over before we’ve made any significant strides in the direction of our desired career. The good news is that these tunes are typically limiting beliefs, and on closer...

    The Best Piece of Career Advice No-one will Ever Give You: Ditch the Metaphorical Suit

    August 30,2016 / experience / 0 Comments

     It seems there are lots of ‘rules’ on the road to career success. Work harder than everyone else. Make life sacrifices. Suit up. Network like a demon. Be an extrovert. Don’t be too wild with your ideas. Avoid ‘different’ clothing. Fix your weaknesses. We are taught that ignoring these rules is a career no no, which will send us straight to the back of the queue when it comes to career progression and promotion. It’s much safer to fit the mould. But what if you want work to feel like play and believe in a work/life...

    Want to Set Up Your Own Business?

    May 06,2016 / experience / 0 Comments

    Recruit a Brain Trust  I work with many people looking to set up their own business in a heartfelt bid for career fulfilment. They share similar characteristics and strengths, including being strategic, creative and smart. Their natural vision and entrepreneurial mind-set mean they are clear on their direction and are motivated to get cracking. But one thing typically holds them back and hinders progress: they are one person trying to do it all. What tends to happen is a cycle that looks something like this: Have a...

    Turning 2016 Goal Setting on its Head

    January 18,2016 / experience / 0 Comments

    If you’re like most people, you’ve given 2016 some thought and have come up with the goals you want to achieve this year. If you’re really set on achieving them, you’ve probably created a physical or mental list of the steps you’re going to take to get there. In fact, when you think about it, your plan is a big list of commitments and actions. It’s feels a bit unwieldy. Quite daunting. Pretty heavy. Best not to think about it. And so the cycle of ‘big goal, over commit, overwhelm, procrastinate and give up’...

    November 21,2015 / experience / 0 Comments

    Many of us, if we allow ourselves to dream, have got a pretty good idea of what we’d like to do for a living if it felt within the realms of possibility and we knew we couldn’t fail.Think about it now and ask yourself this question: If you were confident you’d succeed, weren’t worried about what’s realistic and couldn’t be affected by what other people thought, what job would you be pursuing or creating to best fit your values, strengths and passions?At the very least, you might have a sense of it – particularly in terms of how it would feel.But if you’re like the...
