Are you Ready for Interview Action?

Passionate about change, a project, your industry or is there something in your enterprise or business that's newsworthy? Then it's likely you will find yourself yourself preparing for an interview soon.  It's a great opportunity to share your messages and bring attention to your topic, project, innovation, change etc.  Here's a step by step Checklist to ensure your interview is a success each and every time. And that any nerves are kept in check along the way!  I remember my very first radio interview just like yesterday!!  The journalist told me I would be fine and she was just going to ask me a few questions, it would be like a chat and would feel very natural.  I have to say, with a few more interviews down, this couldn't have been further from the truth.

Are you Leading Above the Line?

Living and leading ABOVE THE LINE is a powerful place to be.  This is the world of our true or 'higher self'. It is where we are able to move into a place of power - good and effective power that is! When we live and lead ABOVE THE LINE, we take charge - we choose our responses (rather than auto react) to people and situations, we take ownership or what is happening and accept what is happening, without feeling sorry for ourselves or feeling like a victim.  A few year ago I completed the challenging program of Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway based on the work and book of Susan Jeffers. This is where I was first introduced to the Above the Line Model.  it was an Ah ha moment for me and it has had a profound impact on me, my life and work.  And as a result on those around me too. Take a look here to see the model .....
