Have you ever shied away from giving your colleague a constructive feedback on a specific action or behaviour you have observed?

LEADERSHIP Decoded.

Leadership – the action of leading a group of people or an organization, or the ability to do this. But what does it mean to be a Leader? On one of my recent trips to The United Arab Emirates, I have come across an interesting description of what makes a good Leader, here it is: L is […]

Staying Fit with Adam Atkinson

Today is the last day of August, which marks the end of summer holidays and the beginning of the pre-Christmas race. In less than four months, our inboxes will be filled with invitations to countless Christmas lunches / dinners / parties… – all super fun, yet, pretty unhealthy time. It seems fit to think about keeping our Summer […]

Follow Your Dreams, but…

I talk a lot with my clients about their aspirations, ambitions and dreams. They all differ in size and courage, starting from learning to swim, taking a career break to climbing Mount Everest. We are all different, thus no surprise we have different ideas for how to live our lives. However large or small are […]

Godzina z Katarzyną Miller

Tym razem dzielę sie z Wami wspaniałym wywiadem jaki przeprowadził z Katarzyną Miller, twórca programu 20m2, Łukasz Jakóbiak. Dużo by tu opowiadać na temat ich rozmowy, lepiej zobaczyć samemu.

Reframing enhances creative thinking, increases ownership of situation and allows for facing and releasing emotions in a logical and systematic way. Using a piece of paper or […]

The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (Step I)

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a self-report questionnaire designed by Katherine Cook Briggs (1875-1968) and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers (1897-1980). They studied and build on the ideas of Carl Jung (1875-1961) and applied them to understanding people around them. Jung developed his ideas about personality type in an effort to explain the […]

Depression Awareness Week 2016

I have been invited to attend the annual Comedy for Depression benefit, which takes place later this week and is headlined by one of my favourite comedians, Stewart Lee. The purpose for the night is to raise money and awareness for the charity Depression Alliance. I would like to use this as an opportunity to take a […]

Because I Said So

“How we went about testing these questions and what we found may astound you. Our planned two-week investigation into the psychology of prison life had to be ended after only six days because of what the situation was doing to the college students who participated. In only a few days, our guards became sadistic and our […]
