📅 Thought for today:
‘I want to work with happy, good people, who have a positive outlook. Not those who are grumpy, complaining and throw diva behaviour.’
— Vaani Kapoor

In addition to providing therapy and coaching services to private clients (mostly entrepreneurs), I also work with companies.
Especially with teams, and especially helping managers and leaders develop their own style and understanding.
The attitude or demeanour of a manager can tell you a lot about how effective they are in motivating the people who report to them.
Not everyone can be positive, that is where my one-on-one practise comes into play.
Outside of my work, I actively engage with positive people. I realise the impact that too much time spent with grumpy sourpusses has on my own mindset.
Why am I thinking about this on a Saturday morning?
Perhaps it is the influence of football, or maybe something I read in the paper this morning, but a favourite saying of my grandmothers is in my head.
“You’ll catch more flies with honey than vinegar”.
Although she also said that if I stood with my mouth open I’d catch a fly, so I’m not sure which technique to use.
