Firstly, I would like to thank all of those people who wrote to me last week about my article on, The Joy and Pain of Leadership. It seems that quite a few people were going through similar experiences. We really are in this together and the power of supporting each other cannot be underestimated.
In fact, it made me think about the last time that I contacted certain people, just to check in and ask how they are. Often when you are in a leadership role people just assume that you have it all together. But often that supposed strength is what is expected and is for the benefit of others, not because it is necessarily real at the time.
When was the last time you contacted a friend, a colleague or even your boss, just to ask how they are? It is surprising what a huge difference that can make to a person’s wellbeing.
Right now, I am making a list of seven people I will call over the next week, will you join me?
Sometimes it is just a simple word, or just the fact that you cared enough to call, that can make an enormous difference.
So, let’s start reconnecting, because this is a simple, yet powerful way that we can all be in this together.
Have a great week.
It seems that every week we are talking about another state that has gone into lockdown – well this time it is Queensland. Take care everyone in the Sunshine State and look after each other. We are thinking of you and supporting you at this time.

All of the Proteus team are happily working towards being fully vaccinated within the next two months. Not only is it the right thing to do, but it is about having respect for the people and the clients we work with face-to-face. Well done to all of the team.

Moving From Busyness To Effectiveness Virtual Workshop
Find your focus and create more with less
This virtual program will help busy leaders to focus on their priorities and establish strategies to bring about sustainable behavioural change. This is not just another time management program, you truly will want to change the way you think, manage yourself and others. A great program for your whole team.
The Service Factor Virtual Workshop
Getting everyone on the same service page
By the end of the program participants will have rediscovered the importance of both internal and external customer service.
They will be able to develop strategies and techniques to provide positive, passionate and professional service to both their customers and across their organisation.
Participants will create a shared understanding and language to drive the service factor across their team or organisation.
