The Proof In Your Pudding

I’m a HUGE foodie. If foodies were people, I’d be China. And I’ve spent the last few months indulging in some of the finest food porn available. The grand finale of the latest season of MasterChef Australia just aired (which makes the UK version look like “Chimps Make Toast”), and the latest winner declared (no spoilers). I’ve slobbered at the sights on my screen, luxuriated in lusciousness, and dreamed of the delicious dishes on display. Seriously, it’s the pinnacle of food porn. But besides the food, the contestants went through the wringer to figure out who they are, what their food is a ..read more

Confidence Coach
by Steve Errey
4M ago
You might have seen that quiet quitting is the latest topic that people just won’t be quiet about. Like the blue dress/gold dress or pineapple on pizza, everyone has a point of view and opinions are split. So I’d like to help. For years I’ve worked with employees and leaders who’ve encountered this phenomenon at different times and in different ways, and successfully helped them navigate it with clarity and purpose. So buckle up and lean in, here are 8 home truths about quiet quitting. 1. Replace “quitting” with “boundaries” As a baseline, the term “quiet quitting” is deeply misleading. Most ..read more

5 Reasons I’ve Screwed Up as a Leader
Confidence Coach
by Steve Errey
5M ago
When I’ve screwed up as a leader (and holy maloney have I ever made some screw-ups), I can put it down to one of these five reasons: Ignoring that tiny, quiet little voice at the back of my head that tells me exactly where the problem is. Being so focused on getting work out the door that I just want everyone to shut up and do what I tell them. Staying quiet and squashing myself down in order to toe the party line, instead of flagging what I know to be true. Internalising the pressure of delivery and turning it into stress. Normalising an unhealthy environment or toxic behaviour as “the way ..read more

Signs of Life
Confidence Coach

2021 took a lot. The whole covid pandemic has taken a lot. It feels a bit like Thanos snapped his fingers and blipped away a couple of years of my life, and I'm a little shocked and discouraged at how different things are today versus two years ago. I can count the number of social occasions in the entire year on one hand. Some days the only words I speak are to my Google Home to switch the lamp on. My armchair has become my little hermit hole. This is the only thing I've written in 18 months (hi, by the way). See, with an underlying chronic illness and covid all around I've had to be careful ..read more

You Don’t Have a Freakin’ Clue
Confidence Coach

Life is hard. I’ve learned that…the hard way. Twists, turns, slaps and roundhouse kicks. Life is full of surprises. We all go around pretending we know what’s going on. That we have our shit together. I do it too. I want people to think well of me. I want to be the best at what I do. I want to create stuff that matters. But really, I’m just making shit up as I go. We’re spinning through space at 1.2 million miles per hour, and yet we’re still dumb enough to think we’re in control. Anything can happen. At any time. Good or bad. When you get right down to it, you don’t have a clue. Nor do you n ..read more

The Modern Day Guide To Embarking On A Quest

Photo by Ahmed Zayan on Unsplash A young girl was walking along a beach, and was horrified to reach a spot where hundreds and hundreds of starfish had been washed up during a storm. One after the other, she'd pick up a starfish and throw it with all her strength back into the waves. People watched her with some amusement, and one man approached her and said, “Hey, why are you doing this? Look at this beach, you haven't even scratched the surface. You can’t possibly save all these starfish!” The girl looked down at her feet, then along the beach at the dying starfish. She bent down, picked u ..read more

Photo by Edwin Hooper on Unsplash People staying home and working from home. People laid off. People in isolation. People at risk. People suffering. People caring. People zooming. People scared. People helping. All kinds of people, trying to deal with this as best they can. I'm adapting to this new world myself. I'm in the at-risk group and have stayed at home and away from people for the last two and half weeks. I've been mixing up working from home and resting up, as for the last month I've felt pretty awful with a flare-up of my illness, and I've found myself concerned from time to tim ..read more

My Take on Steve Perry’s “Don’t Stop Believin'”
Confidence Coach
by Steve Errey
3y ago
Photo by Ran Berkovich on Unsplash Steve Perry, the singer, songwriter and advocate of taking a midnight train going anywhere, has repeatedly told us "Don't Stop Believin'". I've sung (and destroyed) that song by Journey so many time in Karaoke, and man alive is it a good one to belt out at the top of your lungs while a couple of beers into a good night. But, I gotta say, there have been times I've stopped believing. There have been times I've stopped believing that I'm good enough to push through an impossibly tough time. Times I've stopped believing that I've got what it takes to bring ab ..read more

Confidence Coach

Photo by Stephanie McCabe on Unsplash The merry-go-round of wishing everyone a Happy New Year and half-heartedly making New Year's resolutions is with us once again. Let me echo the same sentiment and wish you a genuinely good new year, but don't expect me to support you in the creation of New Year's resolutions. They're a troublesome custom, and here are three reasons they're a terrible idea. 1 Because you want to stop something "bad" Stop eating cake. Stop the sugary drinks. Stop being so negative. Stop smoking. And you really gotta stop feeding your demons. Typically, your New Ye ..read more
