Hi there! Gem here. I have a story to share with you that – truth be told – makes me feel a little vulnerable and wobbly. Last year I went through a bit of a tough time in my career. I learned a lot, especially when it comes to consistently ensuring you’re creating a career that feels meaningful and fulfilling. Today, you get to learn from my mistakes! In this episode of InklingTV, I’m sharing my three somewhat unexpected tips to build a career you’re passionate about … and how to keep doing this as the years go on. Watch…
Hello, Welcome to our first email for 2019! We hope you had a wonderful break over the holiday period, and are coming into the new year feeling excited and refreshed. While we believe that you can create change in your life at any time of year, the start of a new year often prompts us to consider our goals, and how we would like our lives to be different in twelve months’ time. You’re probably hearing the phrase “new year, new you” a lot, but we’d like to change that to “new year, best you” because we don’t think that you…
Hey there! Welcome to our final blog for the year, and what a year it has been! At Inkling, you will know that our philosophy is to lean into discomfort in order to grow, and we have certainly done that in 2018. Please join us as we reflect on our journey over the last twelve months. We worked with 2000+ people around the world in our life-changing programs – from Sydney to San Francisco to London The team took 250+ flights to deliver our programs and workshops Our participants and clients gave us a net promoter score of 91.3 (an NPS above 70…
Hi there, Soph here! Over the past few years I have personally been on a journey to create more energy, clarity and calm in my own world, and I am passionate about sharing what I’ve learnt with others to improve their performance, impact, health and happiness. Through my work as a psychologist, executive coach and business owner I have been able to speak with thousands of leaders. What I’m consistently hearing is that people are feeling stressed and under pressure, and that they don’t have enough time to take good care of themselves, or invest in what lights them up….
Hi folks, In this fast-paced digital world we live in, do you ever feel: Like you’re surrounded by people but lacking connection? That you don’t belong anywhere? Like you have plenty of friends but there’s no one you could call to ask for help? Lonely? It might feel uncomfortable to admit it, but the truth is that you are not alone. A recent study from Swinburne University found that one in four Australians are lonely. After this research was released, we asked you on our Instagram if you had felt lonely in the past week, and 57% of you said…
Hey folks, Gem here. In this episode of InklingTV I’m going to teach you 6 words that I have found incredibly useful to manage conflict and have those difficult conversations. I also have a story about Soph and me and how these 6 little words helped us to move past a big, grumpy misunderstanding! I hope they help you as much as they helped us. With love, Gem SPEAKEASY – LAST CHANCE Our final round of Speakeasy for 2018 began this week in Adelaide.

Hello, First of all, I want to thank everyone who reached out to us after the launch of Inkling two weeks ago; we’re so happy to hear that our new brand and direction resonates with our tribe! As Inkling evolves we’ll be integrating more neuroscience into our work, so I’m very excited to introduce to you Inkling’s Chief Neuroscientist, Dr. Stan Rodski. In today’s video, Dr. Stan and I discuss how you can use neuroscience to skyrocket your potential in your life and career. Dr. Stan is also going to share two tips that you can begin applying straight away to start feeling more energised,…
I am incredibly excited to share with you, our beloved tribe, the evolution of Inkling.
Here is a snapshot of what you can expect to see from us in the future:
Have you ever been really excited about something, maybe it was a career change, promotion, or a big move? But when you shared the news with someone, not only were they not happy for you, they had something really negative to say about it?
If you’re feeling uninspired, like you don’t know how to take control of your career, unsure where your strengths lie, or that you lack the confidence to take the next step in your career; this video is for you.
Do you find yourself focussing a lot of time and energy on everything that’s missing from your life? With thoughts running through your head like “Why don’t I have a better job?”, “Why didn’t I get that promotion?”, “Why don’t I have more money?” or “Why don’t I have a loving relationship?”, and the list goes on and on.
It’s difficult to make our highest contribution at work and at home when we’re exhausted. Many of us know, deep in our bones, that we need time to just BE. The issue is that there are many rational excuses why we cannot take that time now.
Today Gem has a juicy video to share with you on the theme of playing bigger in the world. It’s no coincidence we are talking about playing bigger because today we are announcing Inkling Women’s launch into the United Kingdom with our first Speakeasy program in London. We are beyond excited!
This might be something that you reflect on often, or perhaps the concept of legacy is one that is new to you. Getting clear on your legacy is important because it brings meaning and direction to your work, and helps you, as a leader, to set the tone for the culture within your organisation.
A few weeks ago, I shared with you my top tips for attracting and selecting the right talent to your organisation, today, I’m going share the second part in this series.
Something that often comes up in our workshops and coaching sessions is that people are constantly waiting for someone to rescue them. They’re waiting for someone to notice how hard they’re working and to give them the opportunity they’ve (secretly) been yearning for.
Through our workshops we meet so many women who struggle to allow their true selves to be seen in the workplace. There is a real fear of being excluded, judged, seeming weak or unprofessional, and ultimately of being deemed incapable of their job.
We know from working with thousands of amazing women that a big part of inspiring women to step, speak up and lead is helping them to understand their strengths. Strengths are your secret weapon to a having a fulfilling and successful career!
Today we are launching #WeTwo, a powerful movement that shines a light on stories of men and women working “two-gether” to encourage each other to step up, speak up, lead, and become champions of change in the workplace.
Have you ever been cut off in traffic and then spent the rest of your drive absolutely simmering? Or maybe a client has sent you a nasty email and it’s ruined your whole day? This is a sign that you’re getting stuck with negative emotions, and the good news is we are here to help!
Today we wanted to share something with you that is hot off the press…our 5 Tips for Being an Engaging Public Speaker!
So you’ve recovered from the food coma, the bin is full of wrapping paper, and you are pleased to know that you won’t be hearing Jingle Bell Rock again for a good eleven months. Your mind drifts to New Year’s Eve, and you begin to mull over potential resolutions, and wonder what next year might hold.
Do you find yourself needing the approval of others? Gem will share 3 tips to help you to reduce the worry and create the freedom you deserve.
During the month of May, the Inkling Women team are focussing on health and wellbeing. This weeks homeplay is to practice some breathing techniques each morning and every hour during the day.

In this episode of Inkling TV I talk about a phenomenon that I see holding us back from living courageous and authentic lives. Yes my friends, I am referring to the ‘what will “Everybody” think’ story.
Do you have a nasty voice in your head that says mean and destructive things to you? Does this voice hold you back; convince you that terrible things are going to happen; tell you that you are not enough, never will be enough and that ultimately you are going to die old and alone?
