What difference can I make? I’m just one woman!

Joan, 35, feels disempowered about the state of the world, but tells me that she is a ‘lone wolf.’ She questions how she can help the world alone?
The point is if that we all thought that way, we would not get anywhere. We can, and should, all focus on the difference we can make – be that helping a child, mentoring a younger woman, guiding a female colleague who is trying to make her way in a male-dominated career. The possibilities are endless.

When I work in Organisations, I often witness that Baby Boomers are frustrated with Generation Y who work with them in the same organisation.

‘They think they know everything.’ others will say.
‘They’re lazy and don’t do their jobs properly.’ some retort.

Take Charge NOW!!

Another year has gone and another arrived. Many of us make new years resolutions but more of us don’t keep them. We slip back into our old ways of doing things, accustomed to doing what we do in the same ‘old way’ because that’s what we do.

Real Resilience – Inherent or Learned?

How do you see a person as resilient? Is it that they are able to handle life’s difficulties well? Is it that they don’t seem to allow things to upset them?
Do you think they are people who are less emotional or less sensitive to what goes on around them?
It’s a good question, particularly because Resilience is a focus on ongoing international research that attempts to understand what it is how and
how people can learn to have more of it.

resilient people see hope, or ways of solving problems, or getting over them far quicker than people who are not resilient.
