Why People Leave? (hint* it IS about the money!)

We've heard time and again that people don't leave because of money. We've also heard that money is a hygiene factor and not a motivator (i.e. not enough will make people leave, but its presence will not attract).  Employee surveys put money below job satisfaction, empowerment, opportunity and culture, when ranking why they are engaged ...

Performance Hack; Early Wake UP

I was never a morning person. I studied and later worked all day, with my team training set after everyone finished work, usually around 20:00 and lasting 2 hours. I then got home, ate and usually caught up with studies (I continued to study even after I started working). Bed time usually meant around midnight, ...

Creating SuperSales Performers

"People buy on emotions"... we hear it all the time. They have often downloaded the specs and comparisons off the internet before they even walk into your shop or office, with a clear understanding of what they THINK they need. But that doesn't mean they can't leave with what YOU think is best for their needs...   "S/he's a natural ...

Multitasking is an illusion

In a previous post I talked about the futility of attempting to achieve work-life balance through a measurement of time, (see The Work-Life Balance Illusion) because this often just results in the frustration of not giving enough time to either.

Getting fit, stopping smoking, cutting down on sugars or alcohol are your typical personal goals, with taking that course, learning a new skill, going for that ...

Making an Impact with your Business

Making a (social) Impact 2016 has really been the year of “Big Ideas” for me, after participating in TEDx, Start-Up Malta, Zest and Dream Big events over the past months. It was great to be part of creating a supercharged atmosphere at these events and uplifting to see the enthusiasm of young people aiming to turn ...

To Grow or Not, is a Mindset

As a young chief executive at 26, I signed up to read an MBA, thinking that the toolkit I would develop from the Masters degree would be enough to grow into a competent leader within an organisation. How wrong I was! If anything, studying opened up my eyes to how much there was to learn, and not even ...

The Motivation Model

If you could bottle it, Motivation would be the best selling product on any shelf, because it is the fuel for all achievement. Unfortunately most people attribute motivation to a character trait or personality. We describe motivated people as though it were something they uploaded to their brain, without much understanding of where it comes ...
