The org-chart is dead: bridges, bottlenecks and everything in between

Connectivity is no longer defined by reporting lines – employees connect up, down and across departmental boundaries for functional, social and strategic reasons. This interconnectivity is not reflected in the traditional organisation structure and, if anything, is hindered by it.

Body image and emotions: what’s the connection?

Our views of our body image – what’s on the outside – are directly affected by our emotions on the inside.

Politics, Profits and Paradox

Well what a week in Westminster. Not so much a partridge in a pear tree more like four kingdoms un-united, three parties fighting, two divisive views and a premiership gone pear-shaped.

Why Wellbeing Initiatives Fail … And What You Can Do About It

Organisational spend on wellbeing continues to rise, but despite pouring more cash into the issue and a massive increase in the profile of mental health in particular, the problem if anything appears to be worse.

Coaching creates lasting change

The coaching has been very practical, but it’s the emotional impact that has been so dramatic. I am so relaxed, calm, positive and genuinely excited about my future. Even though I’m the main breadwinner, I’m not panicking about anything because I feel so confident in my own capabilities – I honestly feel very positive.

Brilliance without burnout?

There is a cultural narrative we reinforce about what success looks like, and what we have to do to achieve it. But what is the cost of actually living your life like this, and does high performance really have to come with dangerous consequences? What really happens when you are operating from a continuous position of extreme stress? Can we improve our resilience and capacity, and achieve brilliance without burnout?
The answer is yes. Here’s what we’ve learned about winning in the pressure performance paradigm. Optimal performance requires an integrated approach that extends beyond what you do to your results and behaviour. But where do you start?

The robots are coming – AI anxiety: Why you’re not alone and what you can do about it

It’s no wonder people feel anxious. Faced with predictions that 20-50 percent of all jobs will disappear as a result of developments in artificial intelligence (AI) over the next 10-30 years, we would all be forgiven for being concerned about the future. The headlines might be doom-laden, but I am much more optimistic, and here’s why …

Genuine and long lasting change

We came to realise that it takes that much effort and work to fundamentally change patterns of behaviour and achieve a truly high performing team. Things won’t be magically different with a single two-day off-site meeting. This is about genuine and long-lasting change.

Complete Coherence @ Changeboard Future Talent Conference

We thoroughly enjoyed this year’s Changeboard Future Talent Conference. It was a day full of thought provoking conversations and a lot of laughs, not least thanks to the amazing Lenny Henry! In the afternoon, Alan Watkins, Complete Coherence’s CEO, ran an interactive session with Alastair Campbell and Geoff McDonald about the importance of mental health, and what businesses can do to help break the stigma. Here are our key take-aways from the session.

Expectant employee? Celebrate, don’t commiserate

Sharing the news that you’re expecting a baby with family and friends is almost always exciting and joyous. It can be a very different experience when you tell your employer. I’ve heard many women talk about how much they were dreading telling their boss. They were anticipating, with some justification, a negative reaction. It might have been coated in a smile and polite words of congratulations, but fundamentally the exciting news was viewed by the employer as a problem they really didn’t need. The truth is it doesn’t have to be that way.

Coaching helped me defeat my greatest internal enemies

Complete Coherence’s coaching method was different from anything I’d known before because it is very data oriented. It is backed up by science using a 24-hour Heart Rate Variability (HRV) assessment. As a result of that, I found that I succumbed to the objectivity of the data. Having that reality check of the data was really important. I could not hide from what the numbers were telling me about my energy levels.

Paws for thought!

We all know that our individual wellbeing is important, but it also matters to organisations. Unfortunately few business leaders pay as much attention to it as they should. However, there was an occasion recently at Complete Coherence that made us really stop and think about it.

The biological basis of flow

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi first drew our attention to the idea of a flow state in the early 90s and since then the concept has caught on. Most people have observed sports teams in a state of flow. A state in which a team suddenly achieves a level of brilliance and fluidity that is noticeably different from …Read more

When it all comes down to one minute of perfect performance… 

In the fast changing modern business and sporting worlds, the margins between success and failure are often very small.

Years and years of training, you’ve been running around the track for more than 13 …Read more

How to take your first step towards coherence

I was chatting to someone the other day who had read my book. They were being very complementary, but then she asked me: where do I start? If I want to change my life for the better, what’s the first step? I thought I’d share with you my answer. There is a tendency to think …Read more

Coaching the coaches to avoid the Pardew ‘kiss’

As Alan Pardew awaits the date of his personal hearing to discuss the FA misconduct charge for his apparent ‘Glasgow kiss’ on Hull City’s David Meyler, I wonder why we’re still talking about punishment rather than prevention. We hear very little debate about some of the underlying pressures and causes of behaviour such as Pardew’s, …Read more
