Orienteering at Work

Sometimes we can lose sight of what's important to us at work. This episode presents the idea of personal values or qualities of action and gives advice and tips on how we can use them as a beacon for our behaviour at work - like our inner compass. It's not all plain sailing and takes some practice - but it does have its rewards.

Please do get in touch with any thoughts, questions or comments too. I'd love to hear from you!

What's the story - Cruella de Choice?

It's episode 4. Here I recount a tale of a cooker hood malfunction and how my story about my DIY skills impacted on my behaviour. I then relate this to the experience of a coaching client and invite you to consider your own stories in the workplace and how they might be limiting your behavioural repertoire. There is a tip for changing the impact our stories have on us and recommendations for considering a broader range of actions from the behavioural menu.
