Personal Development

“I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.” Abraham Lincoln

something new every day. I had read a number of years ago that a great

question to ask your children each night is: “What did you learn at school


Let’s ask the question of ourselves: What have I learned today?

Leadership Development

“The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you.” Max DePree

Thank You

Saying “Thank You” is important for leaders. Thank you shows that you

appreciated what your people have done. That appreciation helps your people to develop pride in their work, and pride is one of the best motivators of performance.

Thank you – two words with magical powers.

Team & Organisational Development

“No matter what accomplishments you make, somebody helped you.” Althea Gibson

Team – it’s all about Helping each other

You can spot a successful team in minutes. It’s the team with members that

are always trying to help each other, and you see it in the behaviours of

everyone. They are asking each other questions and sharing ideas with each

other all the time.

How much have you helped your team members this past week?

Something for Fun

“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” Groucho Marx
