Ego: the creator or destroyer of connection?

Ego: the creator or destroyer of connection?

I am constantly fascinated by narrative, language and storytelling, as they are key to the reality we create for ourselves – even when we are not the originator of the narrative. Our narrative frames possibility, both creating and limiting our potential to live our...

Love is all there is

Love is all there is

Depending on how loved up, romantic or cynical you are, Valentine’s Day will hold differing levels of significance for you. One thing is for sure, the increasing levels of commercialism around it make it hard to ignore – from cards, to gifts, to restaurants, your...

Where are you in your business lifecycle?

Kindness is good for you – here’s why
