Monday Mojo – Breaking the Circuit

How are you feeling?  It’s a genuine question because you’ve probably noticed it’s actually getting even weirder out there. I didn’t think it was possible, and yet here we are.  At the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak, I spoke about the importance of finding your language whilst we were hearing new phrases like “sunset clauses”, “social distancing” …

Monday Mojo – Excavate the Unsaid

Do you ever get the impression you’re not getting the full picture from someone?  Sometimes people don’t hold back, and you’re never in any doubt about how they think and feel. Other times, there’s an undertone, where you get a sense something isn’t ok but no one’s really saying anything.  Healthy communication is challenging in …

Monday Mojo – Make it Small

What’s your goal for this week? I’m deliberately not asking about this month, or the rest of this year, because I think everyone is a bit nervous about making big plans right now.  And actually, that’s not a bad thing. When we tend to focus on big changes, we can put ourselves under a lot of pressure …

Monday Mojo – Bring the Roar

Have you got a decision to make? It’s generally quoted that we make somewhere in the region of 35,000 choices every day.What to wear.What to have for breakfast.Whether to “like” something on social media (or not). Some decisions are easier than others, whilst some require making our voices heard. I’m often encouraging you, like last …
