” Time spent with Penny was definitely time well spent! 
I needed to find new ways to respond and offer challenge in a work environment and Penny was able to coach me to draw on my own experience to create a whole new tool kit of techniques for me to use, which are absolutely taking me to the next level already. 
Penny was engaging and so easy to talk to and working with her over several sessions allowed me to really clear my path and focus on me, I would highly recommend her as a coach.”

Why Airbnb got it so right

Why Airbnb got it so right

Letters from CEOs rarely move me. They’re often full of corporate-speak and half-truths. The CEO and Co-Founder of Airbnb, Brian Chesky, changed that with his letter to employees.

The global economy is having a sudden cardiac arrest and despite Brian’s social media following and celebrity status amongst the startup community, he too has been forced to act. His beloved company will axe 1900 out of their 7500 employees.

Leadership in a crisis

Leadership in a crisis

Leading through and out of a crisis is not easy. The uncertainty a crisis brings can leave people feeling disorientated, overwhelmed and unable to act. Intentional leadership is key in these times and those leaders who are able to slow down, step back and challenge their perspectives and exercise their mindset muscles are the ones most likely to succeed and thrive. The question is how?

Jacinda Ardern

Jacinda Ardern

I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like to lead a nation, to make decisions on which the lives of tens of thousands, or millions, of other people depend. If you get things wrong, or delay deciding, they could die. You’d have to make hundreds of daily decisions that affect the livelihoods of your entire country. You’d have to act quickly, without having any real certainty your decisions will achieve what you hope.

For a masterclass in crisis leadership, look no further than Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand. They have had the ‘most decisive and strongest lockdown in the world’ and it’s the only Western country that’s got an ‘elimination goal’ for COVID-19.
