Stuck in a career rut? Why you won’t leave your job (and it’s not what you expect)

“Why isn’t the phone ringing?” a senior executive asked me quizzically over coffee. “It will,” I replied, “once you have made your decision.” Faced with a choice to stay in a career built with an organisation over two decades, or take a leap into the unknown for a metaphorical last hurrah, it is likely the former will win. Even though: staying means surviving on scant sparks of passion staying means … Continued

Holding the umbrella, lessons in leadership

  Cars crawled through the dusty streets nose to tail, as mopeds wove in and out, catching any opportunity to flow. Nestled amongst stone carvings sat a small group of people, their white sarongs sparkling in the sunlight, brightly coloured tunics marking the ceremony.  As one man prayed and made offerings to the Balinese Gods, an old man sat holding an umbrella. He gave shelter from the sun to the … Continued

How to combat FOMO (the fear of missing out)

Do you ever find yourself dropping something you wanted to do, heading off to do something else more exciting instead; only to find when you get there the allure of the tantalising new offer didn’t meet up to your hopes and expectations? Or perhaps you find yourself keeping multiple options open, only to realise at the last minute you’ve spread yourself too thinly, or feel so overwhelmed you make no … Continued

The catharsis of cleaning up

Last Summer I moved from a rambling five bedroom country cottage in Cornwall, to a sunny room in South London. Not for the first time in my life I found myself condensing everything I owned. As I packed I wondered what to keep, what I really needed and what it was time to let go of. I don’t know about you, but I find the more space I have the … Continued

Surviving the void

  The void was vast. A space that stealthily crept in and compressed me with it’s weight. Heavy and bleak like the Winter around me, I felt empty and lost. What should I do? My inner compass spun around furiously with no north to anchor it. My normal reference points had vanished, there was nothing but space. As my mind mind raced with ways to fill the void, I heard … Continued

You can’t deny your destiny

There are a lot of things written about purpose.  Search online and countless articles appear about defining it, losing it, aligning with it or what to do if you don’t think you even have one! In fact I would be the first person to want to talk with you about your purpose in a coaching session. There’s nothing more life defining than it dropping quietly into place. I was working … Continued

Are you ready for transformation?

Do you ever get a feeling you’re putting your life on hold? Holding on until you’ve earned enough money, achieved the ultimate promotion, met the right person, hit your ideal weight, or simply waiting for your retirement until you start living. You know really living. Living the life you want but all too often feels out of reach. Last year I learned we don’t have the luxury of waiting. Hannah … Continued

My secret love affairs

I embarked on two love affairs when I was a child. The first was with the ocean. The power of enormous waves crashing against the exposed Cornish coastline reflected the turbulence roaring around my tiny body. I knew she could take me at any time, as I danced with death in the depth of a winter storm. Her ferocity helped me know I was alive. Face salty from tears and … Continued

Love letters

I had been driving for hours but was far from flowing. A parking ticket that was so avoidable; a dink in the side of the car after a little scuffle with a cyclist, and decent sized telling off from a black cab driver for causing complete carnage at a rather confusing junction. No I was not in my flow. A friend asked if I needed anything, “just to go to … Continued
