Hope

What do you wish others cared more about? It might be each other. Or the environment. Maybe it's wellbeing. Or inequality. I ask this question within our program experiences to dig deeper into participant's passions, interests and purpose. One girl's response recently though really moved me and has taken me on an exploration over the last month as to what it truly is and how it positively impacts a leader's journey of potential. "When the world says give up, hope whispers try it one more time." - Unknown Hope. Her response was as simple and as complex as that. It's like she didn't need to think about the question, at 11 years of age she just knew deep down that more of it in our homes, commu

A Little Hand

Learning doesn't happen in our comfort zone. It only happens when we courageously stretch. I share this reflection with participants all the time, therefore I know it's important I also live it as well. So when my friend issued me a challenge the other week I had a choice to make.

Whether that judgement and competition is real, perceived or feels embedded and immovable, it's presence can have a significant impact on our ability to lead and make a difference in our own and others lives. "Cooperation is the thorough convictio

Taking On The Challenge

Just over a week ago I got the opportunity to have a quick trip up to one of my happy places. The Blue Mountains have always felt like a second home, I've been so fortunate right throughout my life to spend time there with family and friends.
