“Inside Out” philosophy,

All of the programmes are underpinned by “business success through investment in people”. Grow the individual and you grow your organisation. I work to empower the individual to respond effectively to the challenges presented to them in order to grow their personal and team effectiveness. How we are and how we behave is determined by how we think about ourselves, the people that we work with and the problems we have to tackle and overcome.

  • A “people first, task second” approach to people management, is the key,
  • We have the “Casting vote” when it comes to stress – in how we respond,
  • Stress is like beauty – it is in the mind of the beholder,
  • To manage change, we need to master FEAR and HABIT,
  • It’s in the doing comes the knowing – habits we become,
  • In order to communicate we have to connect,
  • Travelling mindlessly causes confusion,
  • The results we get are a consequence of what we do and that what we do is in no small way a result of the way we see the world,
  • We have limitless potential,
  • The meaning we attach to what presents to us in our lives determines how we feel and behave, what we attend to creates our reality,
  • Attention is efficiency and efficiency is attention,
  • Focusing on what can be done now is the key to overcoming any difficult problem.
  • The noise in our mind interferes with effective thinking!
  • When imagination and will are in conflict, imagination will prevail,
  • Focus on the solution and not the problem,
  • If you don’t know where you are going, how will you know when you get there?
  • Improved performance requires direction, commitment and desire to achieve,
  • Real motivation is doing a good job because you want to do a good job,
  • The energy of negative emotions is not replaced, leading to exhaustion,
  • A change in attitude changes everything else. What we put in, we get out,
  • It is not the event but our view of the event that causes us the problem.
  • The ability to respond is ours – Responsibility,
  • Mindfulness is the starting point for personal effectiveness and successful people management,
  • Happiness comes before success, not after,
  • Willpower weakens the more we use it,
  • The process is more important than the result,
  • Mindless activity has us doing same thing over and over expecting different results.
