Do you put off having difficult conversations - at work and at home?  If you do, read on as there is a lot more to mastering difficult conversations than you think.  It's not good enough to have a 'chat' and think you have dealt with 'it'. You need to get your head around what to do before, during and after the conversation.  I recently listened to Rachael Robertson as she shared some leadership tips and tools from her time managing a team to the Antarctic.  I was taken by her authentic and practical style.  But what really clinched the deal for me was how much she cared for her people, her team, her colleagues; and ultimately on a year long expedition to Antarctica, her friends.  Check her out at www.rachaelrobertson.com For now, I want to share her 10 points to having successful difficult conversations.  Give them a go and see how much of a difference it makes.....

One Minute Manager

Our Director, Jo Eady, was recently invited to be an after dinner speaker at a number of Crop Consultant Australia (CCA) forums across Australia.  With the topic of People and Personalities - Making the Most of Your Business Relationships, a challenge was to make the session relevant, timely and practical so that those who attended could take away some here and now tips and tools to use in their business and with their clients.  In addition to the MBTI refresher workshop, Jo also facilitated a session of wisdom sharing where she asked the audience to think about something they do in their business that is key to its success.  There was no shortage of tips. And Jo shared the wisdom of the One Minute Manager. Read here about One Minute Goals, One Minute Praisings and One Minute Re-directs.

Leading on the Edge
WOW what an inspiration!  Our Director, Jo Eady attended the recent Australian Cotton Conference and came back to the office raving about the key note presentation from Rachael Robertson.  Rachael was one of the youngest people to ever lead an Antarctic expedition and one of the first women.  In this pressure cooker environment, Rachael was forced to develop strategies to deal with the isolation, scrutiny and demands of extreme leadership.  With no way in and no way out she had to make it work.  Rachael is a down to earth, authentic, resilient and innovative leader, highly regarded by those she leads.  Read on to find out the six things that she believes led her expeditioners to rank her as 'inspirational'.  And then apply these to your own situations......
