Hello lovely people
Spring is here and I am so loving the sunshine. I can high recommend doing something a bit different so get yourself outside and bask in the Vit-D. On the weekend I took a boat trip from Westminster to Kew, there are some beautiful pubs right on the waterfront that reminded me of my university days in North Devon. There is real beauty in this capital.
It official this weekly blog post is turning monthly! You are always on my mind but business is thriving…
It’s been an amazing few months with Reed Learning; the highlight has been being awarded with the ‘Newcomer (New Trainer) of the Year’ award at the annual award ceremony! What an honour. I have completed a Customer Service project with Lloyds Banking Group which saw me fly off round the Island of UK. I have since joining the training team on the BSKYB account which sees me doing Leadership/Management, Dealing with Difficult People and other fun training like and Creative/Innovative Thinking… Stress Management in few weeks.
Here at uneon training we are coming along too. A few big proposals have gone in and we are delivering some great First Impression, Communication and Assertiveness training around the capital. Delegates seem to be feeling really inspired which is great to see.
Back in the office I am busy. I am scheming the launch of my new site, I am hoping you will find it more engaging; I am not going to give too much away right now… You will see. I am also thinking about bring on some support. More news as it happens. But one thing for sure is growth is happening!
Finally I have been reflecting a lot of the concept of growth and how we keep moving forward and how this is linked to happiness. If you want to move forward to need to be motivated to do more of what you do because it makes you happy or move to a place which you think will make you happier. With this in mind I encourage everyone to think about what makes you unique, what your skills are and what you want to be known for doing. Start talking about it and get on try and find roles and ways of working which are playing to your unique key strengths.
I was watching TED.com, for those of you who are yet to get connected, you will love it. Short inspirational 20minute takes for the world shaker, changers and leading experts. I have been inspired by Brene Brown after watching brought her book ‘The Gifts of Imperfection’. She’s PHD/ expert who’s done loads of research in an engaging way looking to enable us to be honest and open with ourselves. I encourage you to think about who you really are and what you want to be known for at the end of your careers. It takes time to reflective but it is worth it.
Happiness is hot topic in the media right now. David Cameron is even compiling a National Happiness Index in the household survey. The statistics around work life stress and general depression are bad. Reflect on your life and consider what you need to do tweak and change to claim back the happiness. This may involve you speaking your mind getting clear in your head about what you want to say, communicating this well with an assertive and confident way. More on that next time hey.
Until then, get out in the sun
