“Keep trying because you have no idea how close you are to winning.”

“When you want something you have never had, you have to do something you have never done.”

“Even the biggest failure beats the hell out of not trying.”

 

One of the favorite sayings from my clients is that “I have tried everything” No you have only tried everything you know. There is a huge pool of knowledge out there that is thousands of times bigger than what you have been swimming in.

You have no idea on how much you do not know.

Peak Performance and Well-being

Companies are now being held responsible for the mental well-being of their staff

Whatever you think about this we have set up a company to help monitor this for you.

Did you know that probably at least one third of your staff will be suffering from poor sleep.

“Serious sleep problems cause significant difficulties with day time functioning and may be impacting on general physical and mental health.”

Did you know that probably up to one third of your staff will be suffering from low mood or depression and it’s not really a question you can ask in an interview?

We are here to help
