Navigating the Motivational Landscape: From Inception to Achievement

By |January 25th, 2024|Uncategorized|

Recent Posts Navigating the Motivational Landscape: From Inception to Achievement Every action, every achievement, every course of human endeavour, inevitably begins with a thought.  Between that moment of inception, and the often distant lands of a goal achieved, there is a whole lot of ground to cover.  It all begins with that crucial first step, but what is the link between thought and action?  What on Earth comes over us to convince us that traversing such turmoil on our path to achievement is really worth all the hassle?  Alright, it’s a bit of a loaded question when the title of the article has already announced what I’m on about, but it’s worth some consideration.  Why do we do things?  What pushes and urges us forward to achieve, to discover, to create?  There is, of course, some logic behind this.  Not every idea is acted upon, and [...]

Be Prepared For Emergencies Or Opportunities!

By |November 1st, 2023|Uncategorized|

Recent Posts Be prepared for emergencies or opportunities! Picture this: You’re in the middle of a bustling city square when a mime, yes, a mime, silently challenges you to a game of charades. The crowd gathers, excitement builds, and you think, "Why on earth did I skip that drama class in school?" Just like an impromptu mime showdown, life throws unexpected (and sometimes downright quirky) challenges our way. While we can't predict every mime or metaphorical curveball, what we can do is equip ourselves with a wide array of skills and knowledge to handle them with grace. I know the example we opened with is a bit on the abstract side, but we have heard our students give feedback time and time again, of real-world curveball moments which they’ve been able to readily adapt to through the training they received during their qualification. My personal favourite [...]

1. Know that we all react differently to setbacks. A setback is an incident that checks our progress and brings our momentum to a grinding and usually disappointing halt. Our self-esteem can deflate; our confidence and motivation hit rock bottom. People respond differently. Some fall apart; others get back to work immediately; some turn to drink, become depressive, withdrawn, angry, and non-productive, the setback affecting all areas of their lives for some time. One’s degree of maturity, particularly in terms of emotional intelligence, becomes a vital factor in successfully overcoming the personal impact of a major disappointment. 2. Work through the stages of emotional turmoil after a setback. In ‘Emotional Intelligence at Work’, US psychologist Hendrie Weisinger identifies seven sequential post-setback stages common to most people. He says that, following a setback, ‘you need to experience and manage each stage, successfully moving through each one. Failure to do so [...]

Leadership is not an exclusive club for those who are ‘born with it’. Although leadership relies on some inherited characteristics, it also depends on training and experience.

Not all leaders are ‘born leaders’; and leadership is certainly not just a group of personality traits. The leader lives within each of us. So acknowledge that leadership begins with your own belief in yourself. 2. Be sure you have [...]
