In great companies, the planners feel inspired to serve the dreamers -Simon Sinek. As a dreamer myself I can tell you that even the slightest interest shown is incredibly energising.  Mostly we […]

Imagining the Future

Have we lost the art of conversation?

The Art of Conversation isn’t about etiquette, elocution, or knowing how to hold your teacup with your little finger crooked just so. It’s about something simple and profound: connecting.

It is fascinating to me that the corporate world is constantly seeking ways to improve communication. Has communication become another motherhood and apple pie statement – what does it actually mean?

Playing smarter not harder

Albert has used two words here that a lot of people struggle with – Creativity and Fun.

They can both be seen as time wasters, but make no mistake, if your team are not having fun you will be experiencing burn and churn. If you are not being creative you will be replaced by your competition in the not so distant future.

Are you PLAYING to win?

About the last thing you would expect to find in the office, is people playing, it is associated with time wasting and being unprofessional. However, is it really a waste of time, and should it have a place in the office?

Keys to creative thinking

Often creativity is misinterpreted as a talent, but in fact it is more of a mode of operation. We all have an inherent creative side, it’s just a matter of allowing it to breath. During our workshops, people are astounded at the ‘creative talent’ in their group… but really all that is happening is that we give people permission to play and explore.

Are you having FUN?

It is widely accepted that we are most productive when we are happy and having fun.  It is also accepted that celebrating success leads to more success. So why is it that fun remains the “F” word when it comes to office etiquette? One of the little things I like to do with my team is […]

Get Your Team Moving

I saw this video, and it reminded me of how the simplest things can change the day to day routine of life into something fun and memorable. We all know what effect low energy and moral can have on an environment. We are less likely to open up and communicate, share and get involved.
