Awesome FREE Development Resources

Developing your personal and professional skills are fundamental to surviving and thriving at work.  You might disagree with me here, but the way I see it, if you don’t continue to raise your “standard” it’s logical to assume you’ll remain where you are.

Make sense?

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves – Viktor E Frankl

The fact is that personal development stretches our capabilities.  It expands our outlook to see things that were previously outside our view.  It gives us confidence in ourselves and our abilities.  It removes the ceiling on what we previously assumed was our limits, so we can view exactly what we’re able to achieve.

Can you believe it’s nearly Monday again?  What kind of work week did you guys have last week?

Last week, I was fortunate enough to spend some time in some lovely places and meet some wonderfully interesting & inspirational people (such as Anna Bastek).  Plus, a shetland pony wearing a tartan blanket randomly walked past my living room window on Friday afternoon.  All in all, quite awesome 🙂

But the great thing is that, even if it had been an absolute nightmare of the week, today’s the start of a brand new one.  New territory to be explored and a new canvass just waiting for us to make our impression!  I’m so excited that it’s a little scary, lol.

5 Awesome “Must Have” Apps to Survive at Work

Good afternoon!  How’s your week going?  Are you having the time of your life… or hanging on for dear life, waiting for Friday to arrive?

I’ve just returned home from a morning where I got to sing “I’m a Believer” with the Welsh legend that is Nev and listen to the awesome motivation and inspiration that is Brad Burton.  All in all, a blinkin’ good Thursday 🙂

Earlier today, as everyone else reached for their notebook & pen, it dawned on me that I was one of the few grabbing my phone to take notes.   By the time I was driving home, I was mentally listing the wealth of offline items and functions that my iPhone has replaced… some very successfully (and some not so much).

Top Ten Time Management Tips

This week I experienced somewhat of an epiphany (which, contrary to expectations is not the name of the singer who sang “I think we’re alone now” in 1987).  This morning, I looked over my “to do” list and realised I’d managed to accomplish…  *drum roll* next to nothing on there.  Aaaargh!!!

Now, just before you assume I’ve simply spent the week lounging in bed, watching “Murder She Wrote” re-runs or playing Candy Crush, I haven’t.  I’ve been working like a little Trojan.  So what’s happened?

How to Survive a Toxic Boss

I’ve received a few inbox messages over on Facebook that meander into the topic of toxic bosses.  So it’s probably quite a good time to make a post on the subject.  I hope it helps!

So, what do you mean by Toxic Boss?

Obviously, this isn’t a post about asbestos-ridden or uranium-drenched managers.  So, what do we mean by toxic boss?
 
Toxic Leadership is probably more easily described than defined.  Corporate Management Analyst Gillian Flynn did quite a good job of it in 1994; describing a toxic manager as the:
