A Legacy To Learn From

Hi everyone,

I was truly saddened to hear about the passing of two amazing women this week – Judith Durham and Olivia Newton-John.

I grew up with their music and witnessed their great community spirit and acts of compassion and kindness. They truly were Australian icons and will be missed very much.

What struck me about both of these amazing women was how they responded with such grace to the trauma and tragedy thrown at both of their lives; yet all they wanted to do was to make things better.

Unfortunately, it often takes events like these to make us appreciate our own situation more and I am challenged to discover how I can make things better for my own life and for those around me.

So, I want to ask you to join me in a challenge this week and it is this:

Name four areas in your life that you will make better this week and four actions you can take to make life better for someone else.

Imagine if we actually took up this challenge together, we could completely change our thinking our workplaces and our communities.

Will you do it with me this week, because we have so much to be thankful for, and so much we can all give back?

Rest in peace Judith and Olivia you left an amazing legacy for us all to learn from.

Des Penny

Having Conversations That Matter
Virtual Workshop


Next program: 15 September. Selling fast!


Some of the toughest roles for modern day leaders is dealing with the ‘difficult people’ situations at work and navigating challenging conversations with their peers and bosses.

Leaders are now expected to meet their targets, engage staff, give regular positive feedback, build great relationships and coach their people to create a high-performance culture.

But leaders are also required to address poor performance and inappropriate behaviours quickly and effectively. All within an environment where people know their rights and expect fair and reasonable treatment.

The good news is that Having Conversations That Matter will create better leaders, build workplace resilience, transform relationships and create clear economic consequences for the organisation.

  • Why We Need To Be Proactive With Conflict
  • Planning And Delivering Tough Conversation With Results
  • Using The Proteus 5-Step Roadmap To Navigate Challenging Conversations
