If children are our future…

…why aren’t Governments treating the subject of communication skills with the utmost of urgency for inclusion on the school the curriculum? Knowledge is obviously a fundamental requirement for the evolution of ourselves and the societies we exist and operate in, but without the ability to communicate that knowledge to the very best of our ability…

Will I drive, or be driven today?

I woke up today with a feeling of foreboding.  I want to share with you how 4D theory helped me deal with it. There’s a conversation I have to have today, born of a situation not of my making but one that, if I allowed it to, would be at the very front and centre…

More fools us?

One question… More fools us? me included at the top of the list. Why are we ever surprised when a leader says one thing and then does another? This isn’t about David Cameron and his present situation, this is about all political leaders and I feel, based on my experience of life, a huge percentage…

Confidence…

What is it? A feeling, a behaviour, a frame of mind? I’m sure you’ve heard people say, “You should be more confident”, heck you may have even said it yourself, but what does it mean? We probably all think we have a sense of what ‘confidence’ means, but is it the same for all of…

It works both ways…

What we ‘see’ when watching others depends on the ‘clarity’ of the window through which we look. Therefore as we grow in our ability to hold different perspectives we, as receivers, ‘consciously’ create the impact others send, whether they are conscious of their delivered impact, or not. Ants

Happiness is a vanilla yoghurt…

Hi All, I listened to a BBC Radio 4 programme today called, ‘Point of View’.  An academic talked about the results of some research that suggested that happiness could be found in a pot of vanilla yoghurt! In fact the truth is more that it’s the ‘surprise’ one gets when one sees a pot of…

Leaders… are you memorable? (in a good way)

How many of these qualities do you possess… and display? • Showing vulnerability. • Having the ability to make errors and apologising. • Seeing the funny side of situations. • Really listening to problems and dreams. • Giving compliments and asking for advice. • Using people’s first name more often. • Telling stories, not just…

See, Do, Feel, Repeat…. Judson Brewer TED Talks

This is why I love TED… It gives me inspirational information helping me to understand others and myself more fully. The information chips away at the hard shell that can surround us, revealing the ‘being’ within. Much like a sculptor, removes stone to reveal the form within. ‘Breaking habits’ is one of those TED talks,…
