You have heard it many times: “You are in charge of your own destiny. You can have anything you want or have ever dreamt of.” But you find yourself stuck and not even remotely receiving all these amazing things you want. So I dare to ask: “Have you set yourself a true vision? Do you know in detail what you want your life to look and feel like?”
Businesses create 5 year plans or 10 year plans. These plans clearly describe ‘a future vision’ and follow these up with detailed action plans to achieve these. By manifesting a vision into a 5 year plan, the roadmap to success has been laid and 98% of the time, these goals are hit or exceeded ahead of time. Here is a great example. Adidas is an athletics apparel company and by simply producing more apparel, they know that it won’t suffice to keep...
Are you considering to invest into coaching for yourself. We think that any investment to fulfilling your potential is the best life investment. With social media peaking and feeding endless adverts about coaches and trainings to improve your life and encourage you to make as much money as they do, it is easier than ever to embark on a journey of self discovery, self fulfilment and achieving those long lost dreams.
But when scrolling through these posts, as a coach, I am happy to see so many professionals wanting to share their skills and help others. But at the same time we need to remember every person is unique, with unique challenges, goals and lives.

Many moons have passed and we now buy cars that not only service us as a car, but also charge our phones, connect to our ‘cloud’ and play us our favorite playlist. It remembers our favorite destinations (can nearly drive us there on its own). It is also monitored - for safety or to be alert for an emergency - by a far distant ‘Personal Assistant’. I kid you not, they exist and happily speak to you and help you determine the best route, or search for a phone number and even call for a reservation for you… before then also storing and programming the route into your car. Are we now buying a car or are we buying a travel leisure service?
The world has moved to such lengths and the car industry may be a pioneer in...
A career begin is always exciting. We know our place in the business. We are the ‘newbie’, the ‘eager learner’ who has a license to ask questions and learn under supervision. This is the moment in our adult lives where we are impressed and shaped by great examples of people, their ideas and their styles. These observed behaviours will shape us for our careers to come.
This is the first moment where great leadership will make a difference to not only the newbie’s career but also to the business performance. Throughout your entire business, nurturing, investing in your talent at various levels, equals investing into the business growth and carving out a competitive advantage.
