Summer is an amazing time of the year! Whether it’s walking up the mountains, along the sea or simply strolling along the city centre – I love it. And probably, as I write this and the lockdown in Scotland is easing off – this year even more so than maybe any other summer!

The lockdown has done some strange things to people! For me it was that, at times, I wasn’t clear what day of the week it was…. And, before I knew it, the week was gone!

This was a first…. A three day mindset retreat I had booked to attend in person was moved on-line by the organisers.

Seriously… I am tired of all the speculation how the new normal is going to look! And no – I’m not rebelling, I’m not in denial that things will change and I am not sticking my head in the sand either!

May is always such a lovely month! Nearly half way through the year – nature is beaming! Young greens everywhere, trees blossoming and my heart just lifts when I’m on my morning walk.

It’s Easter Weekend – and whether you consider yourself spiritual or religious… Easter is always a time of Hope!
Hope that things change! Hope that we will get there! Hope to meet again – especially in a difficult time like now with Covid-19!

Core Values should translate into all areas of business. Your core values should filter through every single layer of the company from the top to the bottom, from left to right, and span each decision, and action taken.

If you don’t know your values – how do you know what’s right or wrong for your business? Values are powerful words defining your core beliefs. They are there to guide you in your day to day activities and act as a framework for you.

We have all been there, one of our key team members fell ill with burn out, stress, spine injury, cancer. We rotate, reassign their duties, adjust deadlines if that’s even possible and get into a mood of “I must ensure the project gets out the door on time” and ” everybody can be replaced”
