Have you ever wished you understood gender and sexual orientation challenges better?  Have you ever wished you understood why people from different generations, and cultural backgrounds behave differently?  Have you ever wished you got on better with the people at work, or as a manager wish that people were easier to manage?  Do you ever…

October was Breast Cancer Awareness month, a time when many of us have reflected on those we knew and lost, those who survived and are still with us, and those who are still battling or living with breast cancer. I debated long and hard throughout the month of October whether I would write this blog,…

The Fatigue Of Sameness

March 26 2021 By [email protected]

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom (Aristotle). Does every day feel like the day before?  Does every teleconference or Zoom call feel more draining than the previous one?  Do you just feel like staying in your pyjamas some days, watching Netflix, and eating junk food, because it seems easier?  Do you miss boundaries…

No one is coming to save you! Your life is 100% your responsibility!

These were the…

Another International Women’s Day And Women Are Mad As Hell! Here’s Why

April 07 2020 By [email protected]

International Women’s Day has been celebrated on 8 March annually since 1911. While progress has been made, given that it has been over a century the pace of change has been glacial to say the least and frankly, myself and many other women are a bit “over it”! Yes, we are mad as hell, and…

(they Long To Be) Close To You

April 02 2020 By [email protected]

With the COVID-19 pandemic we can be anything BUT close to you! It was however while watching the YouTube clip performed by the Couch Choir of the song Close To You, ( originally performed by The Carpenters in 1970) that got me thinking about what we miss most as humans. The performance recorded earlier this…

Kindness, Dignity & Accountability

December 18 2019 By [email protected]

This past festive season has been surreal to say the least. The bush fire catastrophe across Australia has demonstrated the best of Australian culture and community spirit, and the best and worst of Australian leadership. Many of us feel sadness, disappointment, frustration and anger, yet we have hope and gratitude in our hearts too. We…
