enabling being the best

Performance is driven by people.

It’s commonly acknowledged that strategy, resources, operations, marketing, finance (and whatever else you care to think of) quite obviously neither manage nor lead themselves. That is done by people. So, what do you do about it?

If you care about performance, then you must care about people.

Global organisations, with diversified workforces across languages, cultures, continents, time zones, and working practices, must see the performance of their employees as key to their organisational performance. SMEs face similar challenges, albeit on a different scale. And, for solopreneurs, the very real responsibility for performance is theirs alone.


I am fascinated by the small steps we take towards achieving our larger goals. And, I work alongside individuals and organisations developing positive, creative, and sustainable behaviours that support learning that is integral to performance.

I care about performance, so I care about people.

asking questions & understanding answers


The mindsets of the high-achievers with whom I work are characterised by three great questions.

  1. What am I doing that is good … and should keep doing?
  2. What am I doing that is bad … and should stop doing?
  3. What am I not doing … and should start doing?

Their answers to these questions inform a strategic learning agenda, relevant to the individual and to the organisation, and drive high-performance across the whole range of disciplines.

What are the questions you ask? Do they generate the answers that you need to hear, rather than the answers that you want to hear?

Let’s talk about how you can ask better questions, and drive your performance with what you learn from the answers.

reinforcing an important belief


I believe that everyone has the ability to increase their capacity for learning.

And, this excites me because, when you increase your capacity for learning, you also raise your potential level of performance.

Let’s talk about how creating a performance and learning strategy, and developing the techniques to realise it, will bring huge benefits to you, your life, and the organisations for whom and with whom you work.
