Gifts That Will Help You To
Be A Better Human In Your Workplace

My greatest lesson from working with more than 1000 leaders, women and men, in over 40 countries since 1991 is that in the most remarkable workplaces people are first and foremost. It's Who Before Do. A key consequence is greater value delivery, paradoxically meaning the value of your business increases.

9 ways to increase your value delivery capability

Complimentary symposiums are held online on the first Monday of every month (except December and January) from 4.30 through 5.30 pm AEST. We explore the 5 foundations for remarkablising your workplace pictured on the left. 

Before participating in a symposium you download a red paper and in the case of 'Remarkable is the new normal', a workbook. You then take action in your own best way before the symposium.

At the end of the symposium we arrange a time for a 1 hour online after action review and sustaining momentum workshop.

All the detail is at the registration link here.

Gift Mentoring Session
because sometimes you don't want to watch, read, or listen,
you just want to have a conversation with someone who has been around the block a few times

I'm available at times shown below on Mondays for a 20 minute session.

We'll meet online via my Zoom meeting room. I'll provide the link via email after you book.

We'll pinpoint together one area of focus where success is crucial to you right now. You'll leave your session with at least one great idea that you can begin to immediately implement.

Please note: Only one gift mentoring session available per person.

Changing What's Normal

​In May 2017 I celebrated 10 years of blogging. I carefully reviewed all of the 1391 posts prior to May and wrote 13 new posts on what I feel are my best learnings for purpose-driven leaders right now.

All 13 posts and more are in this one ebook called 'Meaningful Work and The Meaning of Life' which you can download here.

I also share insights I find valuable via the Scoop.it platform
on change champions and the new world of work. These are also shared via LinkedIn and Twitter (see below) should you be connected to me on either platform.
