I’m really lucky that my clients lend me their teams to work with and our conversations are far reaching where the subject matter depends on what’s going on for them at the time.
A few weeks ago we were discussing the play in work and that often we forget we can play and have fun when running a business. And I asked how many people are regularly working extra hours, why and the value it’s adding especially if it’s become the norm?
You’ve spent ages with pen, paper, post it notes, white boards etc. and planned it all out but then when it comes to the implementation and the communication things stall… every day stuff gets in the way.
I don’t know about you but there’s always a feeling of a new year in September, of course it goes back to being at school when the year started in September but its a feeling that doesn’t go away for me or many people that I talk to
One of the things I hear people say all too often is “I need to…” and when I ask how that makes them feel there’s often a look of confusion followed by a slightly embarrassed look
There are times when, like today the sun is shining and I simply want to play hooky… and you know what I can often structure my day so that I can and work say in the evening or at the weekend.
One of my mentors often talks about the wall that people have and can’t see around and that got me thinking… why are we so good at building those brick walls, brick by brick, course by course?
In the last few weeks I’ve seen lots of posts from proud parents sharing the great news about their children passing their degrees with photos of the graduation ceremonies.
Last week I participated in a Young Enterprise day, always great events and learning for the business advisors and the students. The group were mostly A level students and it was interesting to see how natural leaders came forward and how others who were less natural leaders stepped up to the plate. .
So having discussed how AGILE project management could be adapted easily for any situation and used in all sizes of businesses it got me thinking. Project management is all about decision making – what to prioritise, what to do and how to do it.
- Do you have a box of dreams?
- How do you see your life… are there still six degrees of separation?
- Black Friday and Cyber Monday – Beneficial to businesses or does it attract the wrong kind of customer?
- Goals and targets – carrots or sticks?
- What are your vital statistics? Do you know your figures and how do you use them?

What My Clients Say
The changes in Team HR have also been hard emotionally and it is still rocky but we are making progress. I’m very appreciative of all your help and guidance through the past few months.
I have known Yvette for a number of years and met through our membership of the IPP. Yvette is an astute business woman and her passion for the industry she works in shines through at all levels. It is a pleasure to hear her speak at conferences as she always has something new to impart and the delivery of her material is always given with hunour and patience.
