I received a email recently which a lot of you will relate to. The email was from someone who had been in the same job for a while, enjoyed the role but during the past few years her workload has increased yet her salary remained the same. She wanted to stay in the role but felt undervalued and wanted to approach her boss for a pay-rise but wanted some guidance on how to do this. This article covers my response.Posted: Monday 28 March 2016
We have all felt that special almost divine moment. That moment when we are performing a task and time melts away, minutes feel like seconds and seconds are nothing but a blink of an eye. We feel full immersion in a task to such a degree that the task is no longer a separate entity we are the task. We do not notice the world around us, distractions don't exist. All we feel is the marriage of excitement and energy. We are in the place where greatness exists.Posted: Monday 21 March 2016
The majority of good companies around the world offer training, guidance and coaching whenever anyone starts a new position. The idea that they wouldn't receive a thorough training is just inconceivable, yet this happens every single day. Whenever someone gets promoted to a new managerial role, it's rare that they receive the standard of support they need in order to succeed so you see many good people struggle in managerial roles because they are just thrown into the role.Posted: Monday 14 March 2016
