How to Get On at Work – the answer may be under your nose.

Posted on May 25th, 2015 by

This is currently one of my favourite quotes: “Sometimes the people we find it the most difficult to be kind to are the ones who need it the most”. I think I made it up but no doubt someone has said it before in a much more erudite way. Wherever it comes from, it’s a good reminder that sometimes ‘difficult’ behaviour is a cry for help. You will undoubtedly know people at work like that. I thought about this recently

Personal Development Exercises 5. Introvert/Extravert*?

Posted on August 20th, 2012 by

If you’re interested in furthering your own personal development you may have already undertaken a Myers Briggs personality Type Inventory. If you haven’t I can thoroughly recommend it as a personal development exercise. (Check this article out too Do You Know Your Type?) I was fortunate enough to be trained in the US by an MBTI specialist psychologist Dr Charles R Martin (Pictured opposite). He’s written many books on the topic and below is an adaptation from Looking at Type: The Fundamentals. Do read the linked article

Posted on October 19th, 2011 by

Well, for one, Nigel has a soft spot for Bath and two, he loves the Royal Crescent Hotel! Just like me!

In conjunction with the world famous Royal Crescent Hotel I am

No, I’m not talking about sexual attraction here (I’m sure you know your type in that area!), but your MBTI type. If that doesn’t mean anything to you, read on for enlightenment! I’ve had a flurry of Myers Briggs enquiries lately which is great because I love the using the *MBTI for coaching. It really suits my style of working.

A Job You Love?

Posted on June 10th, 2011 by

“Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” So said Confucious and I who am I to disagree with him? I love my job – I have created the job of my dreams! First, of course, I had to work out what my dream job was! I have loved other jobs in my time. And when I haven’t loved my job I’ve tried to find something loveable about it until I was able to get

Why I Love MBTI!

Posted on March 23rd, 2010 by

I really LOVE the MBTI and I LOVE the effect it has when working with women (It works for men too; but I primarily work with women). M.B.T.I. stands for Myers Briggs Type Indicator and you can find more factual details about it via this link. Why? I tend to love it more for what it’s not. A lot of psychological profiling is very judgemental, the MBTI is not. It won’t fill you full of ‘should’ and ‘oughts’ or worse
