KRC Coaching and Facilitation Services are now on-line.

We are all feeling the dramatic effects of the COVID-19 on our lives, businesses, relationships and life in general. Throughout this disruption I continue to reflect on the Chinese word for crisis/change, a combination of 2 characters wei & chi - meaning danger and opportunity.  This chaotic and complex disruption right now is sowing the seeds of change that will impact on all of us from now on. In times of change, it is often the perfect opportunity to reflect and consider your future, what are you going to do when the storm passes?  The challenges are enormous but they don’t have to be [...]

Journaling – the case for….

The Wisdom of Bob the Builder

Bob the Builder – what can we learn from him?? Over the last few weeks, I’ve been reflecting on how we can often get caught up wallowing in negative thought space.  Now this is not unusual for most of us, for generally we have at least twice as many negative thoughts to positive thoughts.  Indeed, negative self-talk is the biggest drag on our capacity to see things in a brighter note, and perhaps seek resolution to our problems.
