Fear of family festivities? Change the conversation.

2020-01-15T13:38:40+10:30

Fear of family festivities? Change the conversation. It's perfectly acceptable to approach the holiday season with dread. A big part of this is due to memories of past lunches and dinners where things didn't always go well. But there's more to it. By the time the holiday break comes around, many of us are exhausted from work so the pressure of being with family just stresses us out even more. As crazy as being around family can be, some of us would be very lonely without them. Be proactive and plan a conversation We plan food, we plan presents [...]

Finding your work life balance

2019-12-02T13:53:04+10:30

Finding Your Work Life Balance ‘Work-life balance’ is a phrase you probably hear often – and it describes a goal that anyone who’s ever been employed relates to. However a OECD report found that Australia ranks in the bottom third of all countries for work-life balance with one in five males and 7 per cent of females employees worked 50 hours or more per week. Juggling the need to earn money and fulfilling the need to have non-work interests, and commitments is challenging. In an ideal world, your professional and personal life should support and strengthen one another. Whether for [...]

Why exercise can make you a better employee.

2019-09-09T12:20:51+09:30

Why exercise can make you a better employee. I’ve never been one of those people who loves to work out and lately, I haven’t been feeling my best.  I have succumbed to the winter blue’s, lacking energy, motivation and that constant feeling of not having enough sleep. This has impacted upon my feel good at home but also my creativity at work. Even though I’m not exercise-obsessed, I am obsessed with feeling my best and getting back into a regular exercise was my new challenge after falling of the exercise wagon some months ago! So, I decided to bite [...]

Igniting Team Spirit

2019-09-09T12:30:11+09:30

Igniting Team Spirit Some of my most enjoyable and successful roles have been when I have had a great team around me. Ask anyone what they love most about work and in most cases, the first thing they mention is 'the people'.
