Hey there, Having a positive outlook is easy when everything is going well, but when life throws us a curve ball or we’re faced with an unforeseen challenge, pessimistic thoughts can sneak up on us and hijack the situation, preventing us from arriving at a positive outcome or even from achieving our goals. When these challenging situations happen, are you guilty of totally personalising the situation and convincing yourself that you’re incompetent or this is all YOUR fault? In this weeks episode of Inkling TV, Inkling’s resident positivity booster and born optimist, Senior Facilitator & Coach Gemma Cunningham, shares 2 of her…
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…
Hi there, In today’s workplace, we are all having to do more with less. It’s one of the most common pieces of feedback we receive from individuals and organisations we work with. We’re more stressed, less centred, and struggling to keep up with an almost constant rate of change. In this weeks episode of Inkling TV, Inkling Co-Founder and Chief Awakening Officer Dr. Gemma Munro discusses the reasons why so many of us feel stuck in this ‘perfect storm’ of stress, and shares a powerful question and action that you can start using each day to help you maintain your well-being and focus. We…
Hi there, It’s Soph from Inkling and I am currently in London for a month exploring the permanent expansion of Inkling to the UK. One of the things that people have loved hearing about is Inkling’s approach to flexibility and the positive business outcomes that we see, both with our clients and in our own business, when this is implemented well. While we haven’t got it perfect yet, we’re proud of pioneering a different approach to the majority of organisations – and we think that it is one of the secret ingredients to our success. At Inkling we aim to…
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…
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…
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.

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.
Over the last few years, a strange thing has started happening to me. I keep meeting people who make me want to grab them by both arms and yell delightedly in their slightly bemused faces “Oh, it’s YOU! I’VE FOUND YOU!”. In short, I have started to find my tribe. Or they have started to find me.
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.
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.
Today I have a question for you…are you passionate about your work?
I hope you are! But if you’re feeling defeated, bored, unfulfilled, or just over your work situation; you are FAR from alone.
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.
In business today, your people are what gives you an edge over the competition, so it is more important than ever to make sure you are attracting the right people.
Returning to work after a few lazy days can be a bit of a shock to the system. Suddenly you’re back in the fray; there are deadlines looming, your to-do list is out of control, and how did you inbox manage to fill up over a long weekend?!
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.

Have you ever felt ‘icky’ when having to give someone feedback? Avoided it all together? Or have you tried but completely stuffed it up? Are you too soft? Too brash?
