Peak Performance During Peak Season (And How To Avoid Burning Out)

The Christmas rush has already set in.  You can sense the heightened levels of anxiety or noise in people’s minds.

Business Women’s Dinner

I was kept on my toes last week as I organised a dinner for business women in my network. Fantastic food and cocktails in Saba Dublin were mixed with plenty of interesting chat and contact sharing.

Man V Woman – A Coach’s Perspective

A client and I were chatting about the topic of ‘women in business’ recently and she asked me if in my experience I thought that there were any glaring differences between my male and female clients.

Are You Clear On Your ‘Wall Of Success?’

“If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall,
every step we take just gets us to the wrong place faster.”

I was a busy young professional working in a multi-national

Success Analogy: Being Busy In The Gym Doesn’t Mean Results

Over the past year, I’ve used the facilities of a local gym/leisure centre close to me. As you’d expect you start to notice people who train regularly at the same time as you. There’s one guy who seems to be there all of the time. He is pretty consistent and dedicated. But what I find fascinating is that he has put on a lot of weight (fat) since he’s been going to the gym.
