Retiring the Warrior Archetype

For many years I battled through life. I adopted masculine energy and stepped into an ethereal, engorged power stance as I fervently propelled myself forwards. I warred against internal and external resistance, defiantly donning armour as I assertively slayed the myriad obstacles in my path.

No-one is Coming to Wave a Magic Wand

No matter how much we dream of the knight in shining armour whisking us off to the castle to live happily ever after, or the powerful leader who spots our talents and plucks us out of mundane corporate obscurity catapulting us into the dream career opportunity, or the fairy godmother who swooshes away our endless domestic drudgery in one sparkly…

Follow Your Heart

Today is boom time for ‘consciousness’, for ‘awakening’. We’re in an effervescent era of mindfulness exploration as we all grapple to breathe, be present and step out of the whirlwinds of our tumultuous, tech filled, stimulus assaulted lives.

How to Deal With Angry Leaders at Work

Today I had to soothe a frightened, disempowered woman I mentor externally into a calm and productive state again. A capable, hard-working, conscientious woman crumpled into a shaking, teary wisp of herself. The cause of her upset? An accusatory, angry chastisement from her boss. She had done no wrong.  In fact it was he who had errored!  But in his…

As A Man Thinketh | James Allen

This is a beautiful, timeless, short and sweet bible of sorts.  Written in 1903, the teachings are as valid and profound today as they were ground breaking when first popularised. Allen is the pioneer of popularist personal development literature. There are some gems to take heed of like... Circumstance does not make the man. It reveals him to himself.’  Oh…

Life Balance is a Fundamental, Human Right. Let’s make it easier to find.

“For my daughter.” “For my young female future leaders.” “For my husband.” “For society’s tomorrow.” The room resounded with different personal reasons as we debated, why? Why were we setting up a gender equality network? Why did this advertising conglomerate need to embrace this year’s hot topic? Why were we each personally invested in launching this initiative, ONE, our employee network…

How to Manage Dis-empowerment At Work (Before you exit singing “Ding dong the witch is dead…”)

So, you’re strong, you’re focused, you’re capable, you’re achieving. You hit your targets, you play that corporate game, you feel in your bones you’re destined for great things at this company, and then boom. Slam. Pop. Wham. Ow. ‘Tis not so.
