Even Federer has a coach!

No one seems to act surprised when they hear that one of the best tennis players of all time admits that he has a coach and not just one but several!  Most top professional tennis players have strategy coaches, psychological coaches, forehand and backhand coaches, you name it they’ll have a whole entourage of experts and personal advisors to get them to the very top of their game and to keep them there. So why don’t we? It is not unusual for people on my trainings (even very experienced leaders) to say to me “why didn’t anyone tell me before, [...]

Read a good book lately?

I have a few friends whose opinion on which books to read, I can really trust. It’s a strange thing how we each find our own way through life and how on our journeys, once in a while, we stumble across a book that really changes our way of looking at things. What a joy it is then to have a friend to share the experience with. To have a person that trusts your judgement enough to make the investment to take the time to read what you read. There can be no question in my mind that sharing a [...]

Didn’t quite turn out how I thought

And so, it is that another year draws to its end, and what a year it’s been. It started out with me wishing it was mid-May and time to take my little 51-year-old MG car over the Alps and down to Montenegro. But before I knew it, it was mid-June and the trip was successfully completed and life had gone back to normal; organising events, writing speeches, meeting potential Associates and stretching my brain into solving the challenges my clients and colleagues threw at me. Looking back, my year didn’t quite turn out how I thought. I thought it was [...]

Driving home for Christmas

With many of us driving home for the holiday season, or at least preparing for our family days, I wonder what your piece of personal news is for this year? I ask because looking back on our  achievements is not always that easy and we often only think about them in a blind panic when someone asks us “tell me, what did you do this year?” The rush of our daily lives tends to smooth over our successes, gently eroding them to little more than ripples in the sand. But take time to turn around and you will see them, [...]

Extraordinary

There can be no doubt that that there are extraordinarily talented people among us. People that have all the attributes that you might want in any single human being. And if this means that the most of us are ‘ordinary’ (otherwise the word would be meaningless) it goes without saying that we can still do extraordinary things, either individually or as a group. However, billions of man-hours are wasted each year in large companies by employees simply not communicating effectively with each other. Silo thinking and silo working are still the biggest curse for our businesses today and it needs [...]
