On The Move Again!

Hi everyone,

These past few weeks I have started to travel again for business, and I am not sure if I like it anymore!

Prior to COVID it was a part of my job that I really enjoyed and considered it a privilege to be able to do it. Now I am more hesitant and not enjoying the security lines, the lack of service, the packed planes, the delays, and the overall grumpiness, and wondering if that person with the cough is going to infect us all.

Now, I know I am not alone here, because many leaders I know have relayed the same sentiments to me about their experiences and their hesitancy to really get back out there.

What it has done though is make us evaluate whether we really need to travel, or could we communicate the same way we have been for the past 2+ years, and in the process reduce costs.

But there is a real upside to being on the move again, as there is nothing like that face-to-face interaction with team members. People you haven’t physically been with for a long period of time.

Last week I was in QLD, SA & VIC in the same week and it was great to catch up with my co-workers again. There are some people in my own organisation who I have not even met face-to-face yet.

So, my advice to me is to ‘Suck it up’ and enjoy the outcome, not necessarily the journey.

However, I guess my three take-away points from all this is are:

  • It is a privilege to travel again so stop complaining
  • It makes you think about your communication options more before you travel – keep the balance right
  • What a privilege it is to be face-to-face with the team again.

As I have said right through this COVID period, it is what it is, and it is up to us to adapt and make it better.

So, until next week, keep the communication up with your teams, whatever way you have the privilege to do it.

Creating A Positive Workplace Culture

Adelaide - 2 September
Brisbane - 24 October


Creating Positive Cultures is about giving people the skills and permission to destroy dysfunction, kill off negative influences and the space for all your positive people to shine and thrive.

Culture is all about your behaviours, it is what to do. So great leaders and workplaces don’t allow their culture to happen by default, they design it together by agreeing to operate above the line in a positive, professional and proactive way.

This allows for a psychological safe space to innovate, stay relevant, to fight clean to develop resilience, gratitude and a growth mindset, while giving staff permission to call people out on any toxic behaviours.

This results in a self-regulating culture where people celebrate achievements while creating great relationships, products and services.

Topics Include:

  • How To Lead And Model Great Cultures
  • Designing A Robust And Sustainable Future Culture
  • Building Resilient Workplaces
