It is hard work managing a team, made even harder by everyone’s different levels of ability and speed to be able to complete tasks.

Two of the biggest disablers in organisations are: I can do it myself. Have you ever heard yourself say, or [...]

You’re heartbroken! You just didn’t see it coming. You thought things were going so well, but now it’s over, and you’re gutted. You keep asking yourself “where did I go wrong?”, and “what could I have done differently”. And slowly it dawns on you. “I treated them the same as everyone else, and now I’m back to where I started”. It reads like the love of your life has walked out on you.
