Maybe it’s because I have just finished trying to read Friedrich Nietzsche’s work that I got to thinking about whether philosophy informs coaching. Philosophers tend to be deep thinking and, oftentimes, shy individuals who inhabit academic spaces like universities. I didn’t imagine they’d have much to say about high performance or good insight into solving […]
Tim Ferris (author of The 4-Hour Work Week) makes me look bad. I mean this guy… this GUY! So many hacks, so many short cuts, so much productivity and so many outcomes. It is high time someone decided to start copying him right? On reflection though, whilst I can look one way and feel bad […]

What comes to mind when you think of Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton? I’ll wager the images which come to mind are very different from Malcolm Turnbull or Bill Shorten. Both Trump and Turnbull are independently wealthy, that’s for sure but would a man like Trump ever be taken seriously in our political landscape? I’m […]
A few years ago ‘bespoke’ was the buzzword. Last year it was ‘ramp up’. Nowadays agile is quite the term, but as always with such words, it has a very fuzzy meaning.

Warren is the fourth wealthiest man on the planet and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, the giant conglomerate of investment, banking, insurance and other diverse business interests. […]

I was pitching a media company who had asked me for tips on increasing productivity. I started out with my CV, which is really the only reason I can speak about productivity to them.

Disagreeableness is an important psychometric, and forms part of one’s personality. People who are highly agreeable are basically people-pleasers – the typical second born bridge builder – the peace maker. People who are highly disagreeable basically don’t give a tinker’s cuss what other people think of them or their actions. I’m sure with a bit […]
