What is your change leadership style?

There’s nothing like a crisis to show us what’s possible. COVID raised the bar exponentially in our capacity to navigate and adapt to change.  According to a new McKinsey Global Survey, companies responded to a range of COVID-19 related changes 20 to 25 times faster than expected¹. Not all change is successful. In fact the failure rate for change initiatives […]

Making work personal to support change and wellbeing

I’m well thanks I said, when someone asked me how I was the other day. The words came automatically. Hold on I thought, what am I actually saying? I reckon it’s timely to revisit what being ‘well’ actually means. Last year knocked us for six. On many days, my best was coping ‘well’ and I reckon I had it far easier than some other […]

Put yourself out there: why vulnerability is the key to your success

Mum, how do you get girls? my 10 year old son Alex asked me. Alex has a crush on Emma who goes to his school. Being put on the spot, I wasn’t sure how to respond to his question. I said Alex, you don’t ‘get’ a girl. The first step is to be friends with Emma. As it turns out, Alex had already written Emma […]

How to create clarity and confidence around the 2021 you want

Last year, while our lives were thrown upside down, we coped and looked after one another. We realised: our capacity to adapt to change was far greater than we thought (truth is, we’re wired to challenge the status quo, make progress, and do better). We’re far more capable and resilient than we thought and COVID also gave us all the […]

My Christmas wish for you (and why you’ll want it)

Last week I turned 50 and felt showered with attention, gifts, and wishes. Loren, a friend from New Zealand reached out on Facebook “Happy Belated Birthday Toni. I’m feeling exhausted which is why this note is a few days late, I’m struggling with the headspace to get everything done at the moment”. I hear you Loren. This year the feeling of […]

2021: Questions every growth leader needs to ask themselves

Communication during a crisis is critical. COVID is a fascinating case study for leadership While every leader globally has faced the same set of circumstances, we’ve seen leaders respond very differently. Take Donald Trump vs Jacinda Ardern as an example of different ends of the leadership spectrum. Who’s a leader you’ve observed this year, either positively or less positively, whose […]

A 4-Step Framework For Mastering Difficult Conversations at Work

Influencing people who don’t agree with you can be frustrating. I was reminded of this insight last week after talking with my ex-partner about high school options for our children. I went first in the conversation, and in my view, my logic was sound, inclusive, and thorough. Problem was, he felt like he was getting backed into a corner and […]

Why you need a strengths based team in 2021 (and 6 questions that will help you achieve it).

What are you really good at? Everyone has relative strengths – talent, knowledge, or skills – that are useful in helping achieve goals. Our strengths are more than what we’re good at though. They energise us, help us be resilient under stress and enable us to flourish, especially when we’re living our values. My friend Andrew loves anything to do with […]
