What Feminism & Equality Mean

October 15 2019 By [email protected]

I have always found it both perplexing and amusing that the people who have the most to say about feminism, misogyny, sexual harassment and gender discrimination are people who have NEVER experienced it – often men! And they tell you to: “Lighten up and get over it.” I am hugely in favour of experiential learning…

Why We Need Quotas For Men!

September 24 2019 By [email protected]

Yes, that is correct – we need quotas for men! I am weary of hearing the same questions on this topic for more than a decade. “Should we have targets, or quotas?” “Won’t quotas result in reverse discrimination against men?” “Aren’t we risking not selecting people based on merit if we have quotas?” “Aren’t most…

Kindness, A Tool For Social Change

August 22 2019 By [email protected]

I have returned from a month of rest, relaxation and reflection. Much of my reflection was about how we as human beings and leaders can be better, connect in more meaningful ways, enable ourselves and others to be the best we can be, and truly imagine what it means to walk a mile in another’s…

David and I are about to embark on a long overdue break; my plan for this trip is to Rest Reflect Reset.I learned this practice from my dear friend and colleague, Dr Adam Fraser, who created this as part of his theory and practice of Third Space. Third Space transformed the way I lived and…

What today’s leaders can learn from the Anzacs

April 23 2019 By [email protected]

As a nation, we are united as one for the celebration and remembrance of Anzac Day and those who have died for the freedom of this great country in which we live. Australian ideals had been both tested and proved at Gallipoli. Wayne Swan once said this about Gallipoli : “What emerged was a moral…

Create The Dream Place To Work

February 08 2019 By [email protected]

I love research that draws our attention to the positive aspects of leadership, people and life, and challenges you to see things differently, rather than to see what’s wrong and why new ways won’t work! In a study done by Robert Goffee and Gareth Jones, professors at London Business School and IE Business School (Madrid)…

Are you listening?

January 30 2019 By [email protected]

“It is better to remain quiet and be thought of a fool, than to speak up and remove all doubt” Anonymous Most of us don’t actually listen, we simply hear. This means that we comprehend less than 50% of every verbal conversation we have, so much of the message is either forgotten or lost. Many…

What Matters Most

August 14 2018 By [email protected]

Many people I know here in Australia and around the world are having a challenging year – ill health, financial difficulties, job insecurity, loss of loved ones and increasing dissatisfaction and disengagement with political leadership around the world. At times it feels as though the world is becoming less tolerant, less generous, less kind, more…

In its 28thyear, the Global Summit of Women was held in Sydney, Australia, with over 1,000 women attending from more than 65 countries. It was three days of sharing, networking, wisdom and fun. I have had the privilege of attending three summits and being a speaker at each of them – Beijing (2010), Paris (2013)…

What’s The Lesson

March 06 2018 By [email protected]

Building on my January mantra of:“Find the joy in every day and situation, no matter the circumstances,” my mantra for February has been “What’s the Lesson?” I had decided that following some demanding situations at the end of 2017 that I would find the joy in every situation, and was delighted to find that there…
