Recently I attended a leader’s conference in Sydney where I had the pleasure of listening to a fantastic speaker - Matt Church. Matt spoke about thriving in the age of disruption which I found incredibly interesting.  Some of the takeaways from the keynote, was that what may work in business today certainly will not be good enough for tomorrow. Old business models need to constantly evolve to keep up with the disruption and change; and the stagnant leadership styles just won’t cut it anymore. Below are some of my ideas on what I believe will be the new leadership style of tomorrow.Read more...

Really – I don’t think so! Yes, failing often elicits other feelings such as disappointment, anger, frustration, and regret or even confusion, but if you can’t control these basic emotions and feeling lots of pain, maybe it’s because you actually fear failing. Nobody wants to fail, but for some people the need to avoid failure is stronger than the need to succeed. What they don’t realise is that this fear is actually subconsciously sabotaging their efforts to succeed. Self-sabotage can be as simple as “forgetting” to enrol in that course to enhance their career, or as complicated as deliberately going out the night before a big presentation so you have a valid excuse when it goes bad. Fear of failure is caused by an often intense and hidden emotion called shame that can rock you to the core, shatter your self-esteem and your ego, and set you on a continual roundabout of self-sabotage.Read more...

I had the great pleasure to attend a talk given by David Parkin OAM, former AFL and four-time premiership coach, just prior to Christmas.  David presentation was truly inspirational, sharing his thoughts on how we can not only improve our own coaching but also make a difference to the lives of those athletes that we work with.Read more...

Self-awareness is a quality that will bring out both the best in you, and those you work with. It can enhance our reasoning and our thinking, as well as improving our interpersonal skills for better relationships outcomes. In fact, the one competency that our great leaders all have in common is self-awareness (Church, 1997). Early in their careers, these leaders, were able to recognize their strengths and weaknesses, enabling them to positively change their behavior for all concerned.Read more...

In days gone by, we all made sandwiches, and we ate what was given to us. Those days no longer exist, the world has become more volatile and complex. The art of sandwich making has been taken to another level, especially by our younger generations that have been educated to have a more sophisticated palate. No longer is a sandwich made by our mum in an apron acceptable, but we seek the experience that a sandwich artisan delivers. And the same applies for the Sandwich Feedback Technique.Read more...

‘Fast-tracking’ is the latest buzzword in sport and education. These days you can ‘fast track your child to improved confidence, better soccer skills, even enrichment for kindergarten. Read more...

For some sports diehards, particularly AFL fans, losing an important game is almost like losing a family member.Read more...
