The Neuroscience of Trust in Uncertain Times

12/14/2020
Trust is a fickle thing. It's been likened to a bankroll in your pocket. Each time you earn someone's trust your bankroll gets a little larger. You keep on demonstrating your trustworthiness to people and your bankroll slowly but steadily grows. When I do this in a live example in workshops, I give the volunteer the money, and they give it back to me, most often the smallest bills first. Then one moment, you breach their trust. In the live test in a workshop, immediately the volunteer...

Wise leaders know to fix these three things before expecting trust and collaboration in their team.

12/14/2020
Purpose: Trust has flat-lined in recent months, thanks largely to the lack of physical interaction. Plus the small detail that this pandemic has massively damaged the global economy threatening jobs and business survival. And without trust, there's no chance of collaboration (in spite of all the wonderful tools to support it) even though we need to do so now more than ever if we are to rebuild our businesses, the economy and lives. In this edition, we'll consider why our brains have decided...

Journaling for Success

11/10/2020
It's What Great Leader Do! Have you noticed that all the famous, admired leaders write an autobiography or a book about leadership? Amazing how they seem to recall those hundreds of stories in so much specific detail. Or perhaps it's not amazing, but a simple case of keeping a journal. What is interesting is that leaders who keep a journal are vastly more likely to be admired leaders than those who do not keep a journal. And the latter aren't ever famous. 💡 Purpose You only learn when you...

All The Faces In The World Are Mirrors.

9/22/2020
Long ago in a small, far away village, there was place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit.

To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was...

What's your Mindset?

Encourage Two Mindsets When I first started training and coaching more than 30 years ago I found that there were two distinct types of client or participant: I blamed myself about the second group, of course. Somehow, I wasn't getting through, but try as I may, somehow I couldn't find a way to get them to learn. Then I read Carol Dweck's excellent book on Mindset and my lightening fast brain ignited with insight: In every group of people there are two base mindsets, those who...

Do You Want to Create Your Future,

The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. Ecc 9:11 NIV "They really should..." begins another tirade of disgust at the ineptitude of the leadership to fix the problems. "Why they can't..." interjects the thought of an easy fix that "anyone with an ounce of real experience would have known from the start". "Why doesn't somebody do something?" "Why...
