Recently I had the great privilege of being invited to facilitate a leadership team through their team building workshops.
NAIDOC Week is a time to celebrate First Nations people's culture and connection to Country and waters.
During National Reconciliation Week (27 May-3 June 2022), we all need to remember that every time we gather, we meet on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Lands. In our genuine acknowledgement of Country, we show that we know and recognise that we are on First Nations Lands.
Over recent years I have witnessed an upward trend of planning in 12 month cycles.

When coming together digitally with leaders in your organisation, the meeting often becomes very task focussed. With the past couple of years demanding a significant increase in video conferencing as our default meeting platform, it's time that we re-introduce the human element of connection.
Whilst we all navigate the ups and downs of Covid as leaders, being flexible is vital.
Advance Your Business was engaged by NCN Health to facilitate some important work with an amalgamated team. The sticky wall (shown in photograph above) was used in one of the sessions to create a visual illustration of the critical processes the team members were involved in.
Your organisation’s Vision is a beacon, encouraging others to follow. Not to be confused with goals or values, it represents your organisation’s unique destination.
At the end of each year, I like to reflect on past successes and challenges – to learn from them and take this wisdom forwards. I do 2 things – firstly I create a visual diagram (as below) which helps me to focus and organise my thinking. My ‘big’ learnings usually cost me emotionally as I debate with myself how best to proceed, thinking through options, taking the impact on myself and others into account, then making and implementing a decision. So why not gain a continuous benefit from this effort?
