Find The Joy

February 01 2018 By [email protected]

As part of reflecting on the year that was 2017, I decided that in 2018, I would create and adopt a mantra for each month, then reflect on its effectiveness at the end of each month. I thought I would share with you how that has worked in the first month of 2018. January’s mantra:…

Do You Respect Differences?

June 28 2017 By [email protected]

Time for reflection is very important for our mental, physical and emotional well-being, and our ability to engage in self-care. I think it is indicative of our “busyness” that the number one workers compensation claims today are stress related, rather than physical injuries. Stress is also the most significant contributor to ill health. And yet…

What Today’s Leaders Can Learn From The ANZACs

April 12 2017 By [email protected]

As a nation, this month we will unite for the celebration and remembrance of Anzac Day and those who have died for the freedom of this great country in which we live.  A past federal Treasurer speaking on Anzac Day a few years ago said Australian ideals had been both tested and proved at Gallipoli.  Further, he…

Be Bold For Change

March 09 2017 By [email protected]

Six key tips to be bold for gender equality change without fear of losing your job If women are not willing to be bold, nothing will change. Given the glacial pace of change for women in the workplace, including politics, at the current rate of change it will be over 100 years before we have…

High Tech Destroying Human Touch?

August 01 2016 By [email protected]

I have just returned from a 4-day visit to Hong Kong where yet again I was starkly reminded of how technology is controlling a significant part of our daily lives, both professionally and personally. As we sat at dinner in a Michelin star Chinese restaurant, with beautiful surroundings, classical music, exceptional service and delicious food,…

Gen Y Females’ Top Election Issues 2016

May 27 2016 By [email protected]

I asked a number of Gen Y female entrepreneurs on social media the following two questions: What are your top 3 issues for the election? Are you engaged, disengaged or disillusioned with the current election campaign? Why? Please note that I did not purposely exclude men, I simply had the opportunity to ask women who…

Do You Really Listen or Simply Hear?

April 12 2016 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…

We Need Quotas For Men

March 08 2016 By [email protected]

Yes, that is correct – we need quotas for men! As we approach yet another International Women’s Day, and face questions such as: “When is International Men’s Day?” to which I usually respond with: “The other 364 days of the year!” “Should we have targets, or quotas?” “Won’t quotas result in reverse discrimination against men?”…

What Feminism & Equality Really Mean

February 24 2016 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…

Does Money + Power = Lack of Leadership and Integrity?

February 17 2016 By [email protected]

Over the past few months the media has been flooded with stories of corruption, bad behaviour and a complete lack of integrity in sport, politics and business! What must young people think when they look to supposed role models of leadership? I know what they are thinking because they tell me. Generation Y and now…

What I Have Learnt From David Morrison

January 27 2016 By [email protected]

Congratulations to David Morrison on being named Australian of the Year 2016. Many have seen this as a great choice given David’s public commitment to gender equality, even being called an “equality warrior”, while others in the media (and probably quietly in private conversations) have said it was a “politically correct” decision. I disagree with…

Creating Inclusive, Transformational Leaders

November 19 2015 By [email protected]

Over the past decade I have interviewed over 100 effective and inspiring leaders prior to, and subsequent to the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) about what enabled them to transform their organisations and actively engage their people, in both the good times and more challenging times. These leaders have been from different industries and organisations; and…
