What happens when you take a world record and add IT ? You get a new way of looking at limits and the role people play.
In a world that is changing quickly, agility and Agile have become key words, but have we as players in this world changed ? Are we still living in a world of ‘following’ or are we activating our inner leader and shining ?
You don’t have to be borne a leader. I know this because I wasn’t borne to become the Deepest Woman in the World, I had to learn how and that started with changing the assessments I had about the world and how I fitted into it. I stopped doing what felt right for me and started to do the things that a world record holder would find easy. I started to think and act greater than who I thought I was! I chose to react differently to the world around me.
Which is what this site is all about – finding new ways of showing up, shifting cultures out of unilateral being into autonomous, agile, creative being and showing people new ways that they can own their ‘shine’

Living my Awesome, Creating Awesome Worplaces, Delivering Awesome Products
This ain’t a short, in and out post! It’s about finding and living from a deeper sense of purpose and finding and connecting with people who are also living from that space. It is about the change I want to see – one where people are inspired to take back their lives, to own them, […]
Unilateral Control isn’t Resticted to Leaders…
We tend to think of command and control (unilateral control) as something that only leaders live. The language we use re-in forces this belief, especially as the values that Roger Schwarz ascribes to unilateral control seem to apply more to people who lead than the people who are led – values such as win, don’t […]
Scrum Gathering Here I Come!
It seems to be the year for me to speak at conferences. Agile Africa went really well and the topic seems to be connecting well into a new direction for Agile as a whole – Humanising Agile. My talk for SUGSA is once again about behaviour, but with a twist – making it practical and […]
Finding Peace when living in an emotional world
Many people think excitement is happiness. But when you are excited you are not peaceful. True happiness is based on peace. At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it. Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, […]
