Lauren Burns: Life’s a Team Sport

Monday, 20 August 2012 13:48
I was giving a presentation last week and was asked to comment on the value of building relationships. This is one of the core values in my business and I believe it is what has ensured a 12yr career in corporate speaking following the Sydney Olympics. When I reflect on my own performance at those Games there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that I could not have done it alone. We hear a lot about the team of people; coaching staff, sports psychologists, strength coaches, massage therapists, physios and nutritionists that surround athletes and they really do play… READ MORE

It's all about sharing

Thursday, 12 July 2012 10:00
Glynn Nicholas is one of Australia's best known comics, theatre producer and author, and a popular business speaker for his savvy insights on leadership and teambuilding. When busking his way through Europe, Glynn learned that the key is sharing. Shared trust enables you to achieve the impossible both with an audience and a team - they know you're leading them somewhere great. Shared humour binds co-workers together and unites them in a common goal. Shared humanity shows your team (and audience) that they're valued as individuals, something so few organisations get right. Get those things right and everything else just… READ MORE

Build your team: the Olympic way

Thursday, 12 July 2012 10:00
The Olympics is not just a sporting event. As the apotheosis of any athlete's career, it's a testament to the dedication and sacrifice required to achieve an elite level of performance. Which is why, when Natalie Cook talks business, you should listen. The Olympic volleyball gold medalist and author believes that the lessons learned from team-based sports are directly transferrable to the world of business - goal-setting, communication and teamwork all being absolutely crucial to your team's long term success.

Innovation is a state of mind

Wednesday, 11 July 2012 12:32
Innovation is the force that drives human progress. It has taken us out of the cave and into houses, cars and aeroplanes. Innovation has created Wi-Fi, smartphones, beach towels and whatever you are reading this on. The ever increasing pace of change in the world is exciting, but also scary, because it means that almost everything that you do now in your business, no matter how brilliant, cutting edge and state of the art, is soon going to be out-dated. 2012's world's best practice isn't going to cut it in 2020, just as world's best practice in 2004 wouldn't cut… READ MORE

We've all had those moments when the challenges feel too great - we're so caught up in what we need to achieve but can't see how we're going to do it. It's at those moments we need to remember the WHY. Sam Cawthorn understands this better than most and believes that communicating the WHY of your organistion is one of the most effective means of getting buy-in from your team. Sam says: The WHY is the core story of an organisation or individual. It’s the reason why we do what we do and what drives our passion and energy. Most…
