book cover


I am celebrating the launch of my book – Start Inspiring, Stop Driving – in digital format by committing to donate all profits from book sales in October and November to my wonderful client, Good Shepherd Microfinance. My book is available for purchase at HERE in physical and digital formats.


Good Shepherd Microfinanceis a leading not-for-profit microfinance provider in Australia, offering no or low interest loans and other financial services to people who are excluded from mainstream financial services. 


My book is about believing in people’s potential and inspiring them to perform at their best. I believe in enabling people to realise their own potential andGood Shepherd Microfinance is a great example. They believe in and support people on low income to define and realise their own economic wellbeing and to feel valued and in control of their finances and lives.

I believe better performance conversations is what counts, whatever the systemetter performance conversations is what counts, whatever the system. Getting better at tricky performance conversations saves you time, energy and stress.


The webinar ‘Tricky performance conversations: 5 common mistakes to avoid’ was held in August 2015  and covered:


  • what makes performance conversations tricky
  • the 5 common mistakes to avoid
  • what’s needed to avoid these mistakes

Tough AND Caring: Leadership Keys to Turning Around Poor Performance and Behaviour

I will be hosting a mini-workshop on Tuesday 11th August from 9:00-11:30am at Inspire9 near Richmond station in Melbourne, VIC. Enabled by Peer Academy, the cost is just $97 per person. The first five to register will get 20% off using the code "toughandcaring20%off".

Why attend?
It costs a lot to have a team member who is not performing or behaving to expectations. With all the pressure to perform and grow, we cannot afford to avoid or ineffectively address performance and behaviour issues. The workshop is an interactive session to find more powerful mindsets and skill-sets that increase the chances of empowering the team member/s to turn performance and behaviour issues around.
