02 Oct: Radical self-enquiry will transform your leadership and culture

Hello from London, Last week I travelled across the gloriously green English countryside to deliver workshops with over 100 leaders. Some of these leaders were well established and very senior, while others were new in their leadership positions. Very quickly we established a guideline for the sessions (one that we always set at Inkling): we would leave hierarchy at the door. This is because they were a group of leaders there for the same reasons; they were seeking greater confidence, clarity and support to be more resilient leaders. They wanted to support their teams (and themselves!) through what often seemed…

07 Aug: Leading through change and uncertainty

Hello there, Soph here and today I wanted to talk about something that I am consistently hearing in my work with people and organisations all over the world. There’s more pressure on us than ever before, as we’re being asked to do more with less and constantly change in response to our shifting external environment. If you feel exhausted by the amount of change, pressure and busyness in your life, I get it, and trust me – you’re absolutely not alone in the struggle. In this article I want to share with you what I have learnt about navigating through…

23 Jan: New year, best you

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…

21 Nov: The leadership program that no one else in the world is offering

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….

06 Nov: Are you lonely?

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…

25 Oct: Speakeasy & 2019 Public Program Launch

Hi there, It’s time to get real. Be honest; how often do you sit in meetings, with a suggestion or idea on your mind, and never quite find the right time to speak up? Have you ever been offered a speaking opportunity that would be a great career move, but start sweating at the thought of standing up in front of a crowd? If these scenarios sound familiar, you’re not alone. We see thousands of people who are not living up to their true potential, and are having a limited impact and influence at work simply because they lack the…

Developing an abundance mindset

27 Jun: Developing an abundance mindset

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.
