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.

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.

Bosses behaving like children

Bosses behaving like children

Sometimes when I’m observing boards or executive teams and the way they interact, I get flashbacks … to the school playground. Many people believe that when we reach adulthood we have matured. My experience of boards and executive teams would suggest otherwise. Anyone that has children or has interacted with children knows very well that …Read more

Buckaroo management

Buckaroo management

Does this scene sound familiar? You’ve got a number of projects running at the same time. As soon as someone comes up with another idea, you add another project to your list. You’re just adding more and more to your workload. You decide you need a project manager to manage all these projects. All the …Read more

Mismeasurement of talent

The Mismeasurement of Talent

Recently reading Stephen Jay Gould’s masterful tome, The Mismeasure of Man, I was struck by how often people who measure aspects of personality or human functioning, can get it so completely wrong. Such mismeasurement can have devastating consequences, as Gould chronicles. His book brilliantly details how, when the fundamental assumption about what is being measured …Read more

Unleashing the potential of teams

Unleashing the potential of teams

I’ve been asked a few times about a quote on the cover of my book. Warwick Brady, the COO at easyJet, is quoted on how working with me has sped up the development of his team’s performance – cutting the team building process from five or six years down to just six months. This blog …Read more

Stop playing catch up and start getting ahead

Stop playing catch up and start getting ahead

Most people would recognise the ever-increasing pace of work. We need to bring products to market more quickly, make decisions faster, make sense of much more information, and cut through increasing complexity. We’re running faster and faster, but struggling to catch up with the pace of change. So, how do you cope? The traditional view …Read more

Leadership ripple

The new leadership style ripple

I trained as a nurse but left the profession following my degree and a few years in practice, because I felt so disillusioned. Just last week I had an experience that gave me hope that the ripple effect from my professional education has started to create genuine change. I went to a reunion for the …Read more

Developing the most elusive leadership behaviours

The most elusive leadership behaviours

I’ve assessed, developed and coached senior leaders for many years and also had the pleasure of being involved in the research behind one of the most widely used leadership behaviour models in the world, but there is one thing that has always really frustrated me. Of the twelve leadership behaviours that we identified as being …Read more

Understanding someone else is transformational

Understanding someone else is transformational

I’ve served on three executive boards in my career and if I look back on the most challenging times, I am sure that if I had had a better understanding of everyone on that board, we would have been much more effective. When you’re dealing with a group of senior executives, by the very nature …Read more

Narcissistic boss

Narcissistic Boss – Immune to Change?

There was a compelling piece in the FT recently by Naomi Shragai detailing the challenges of dealing with a narcissistic CEO or boss. Most senior executives are all too familiar with the charismatic, colourful charmer who is aggressive, controlling, status conscious, self-obsessed and volatile. However, their passion, ambition and intensity serve them well and many …Read more

Insularity predictor of failure

Insularity a predictor of failure?

Prior to the London 2012 Olympics I had the great good fortune of being invited to work with the GB Rowing squad. They were attempting to beat their best ever result in the Beijing games of six medals. Rowing was my sport and London my home Olympics so as a request for help it doesn’t …Read more

The fog is clearing and the clock is ticking

Every few weeks there is a media flurry over the issue of climate change. Is the planet really heating up and are we to blame? The way these stories are reported it is often, for the average citizen who is not an expert in these complicated matters, hard to know what the truth is. But …Read more
