Smashing Ceilings: The Challenges of Powerhouse Women in Business. For many years, I have been coaching women in various businesses and at different levels on their career ladders. During this time, a few things have really struck me as particularly problematic for women hoping to reach the very top of their chosen industries.

The journey to the top often comes at a price to their private lives, and while they ..read more

Hesitant to Ask Your Organisation to Change?
The Maverick Paradox

Hesitant to Ask Your Organisation to Change? Managing change doesn’t have to be a slow and methodical process. In fact, to expect slow change is to do a disservice to the organisation and its people, accepting a pace of change that actually falls behind the pace of change around us. “I don’t want to ask my team to make too many changes at once. We need to manage change slowly and methodically.” I have heard words to that effect from a VP of Sales or a CEO dozens of times. Typically, the specifics have to do with changes in the sales force, because that is the world in which I practic ..read more

What are you doing about a 22% job approval?
The Maverick Paradox
by Ben Baker
1w ago
What are you doing about a 22% job approval? HRD wrote an article earlier this year, “Alarming low: Only 22% of employees satisfied with their jobs.” This leads me to question whether the work itself or unrealistic expectations of what a job should provide you, are driving this. People read these headlines and immediately assume that companies and leadership are one hundred percent responsible for these low numbers. I am not here to argue that they do not bear some responsibility (we will get to that) to increase job satisfaction; however, to say that individuals should not take responsibility ..read more

Neurodiversity in the workplace. A TOPIC that keeps cropping up for me in the workplace is neurodiversity. So, let’s give you the lowdown … What is neurodiversity? Well, it’s an ‘umbrella’ term which refers to individuals who behave, think and learn differently to those who are ‘neurotypical’ (which itself refers to those whose brains function in what society would deem the usual way). Examples of people who might be considered neurodivergent include those who are autistic, dyspraxic or dyslexic, and those who have ADHD. Why is this important? Understanding neurodiversity is really important f ..read more

A mantra for paying forward the gift of appreciation. Many people ask me why I have the title of Chief Pay it Forward Officer. My response is always twofold – First, because I love how it makes me feel when I have the opportunity to pay it forward, and second because I love the difference that paying it forward can have on others.  So a win for me, and a win for my recipients! This same is true when it comes to recognition and appreciation, for paying it forward by giving what I call the ‘gift’ of appreciation, again has two impacts. First, it makes you feel ..read more
