Having low self-esteem can be quite common, and have negative affects on one's life. This article looks at what self-esteem is, how it differs from self-confidence, and how you can boost your self-esteem to enjoy a better life.

If you’re a trainer by profession, you might assume that you’ve learnt everything you need to know about teaching others.

This is, however, unlikely. In fact, being a good trainer involves continually seeking out ways to deliver a better experience for your trainees. It’s as much learning as it is teaching – and it’s a constant work in progress.

So what tactics can you employ to make sure you’re d...

Recently, a friend of mine had the opportunity to go to an interactive workshop/training session that I would love to have been able to go to.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible, so I told her that I would get all the good bits from her afterwards.

A few days after the session, I managed to catch up with her. Eager to hear what she’d learnt, I asked about the main issues that had been dis...

Our life would be so much easier if everyone communicated well with each other, and misunderstandings were resolved easily.

Unfortunately, this is not the case in real life; especially in today’s diverse workplace where people from different walks of life have to work together in the same environment.

Without effective communication skills, there’s a lot of room for misunderstandings, misinterpretations, ...

Does this sound familiar? On too many days, you feel like you're playing catch-up all day - you start on one task, only to decide that something else is more important, so you switch to working on that instead. You may decide to make an early start, but the story is the same. By the time you leave work, you're exhausted - but you feel like you haven't really accomplished much.

Stressful, right? But if you’re ...

Have you ever felt as though you know exactly what it is that you want to achieve and how to go about doing it, but you fall short when it comes to explaining your plans to others?

Or do you feel like you can talk the talk but, underneath all the confident speeches, you’re not at all sure about what you should be doing with yourself?

You’re not alone. It’s a common disconnect between how we feel and how...

Relationships require constant work. Whether it’s professional partnerships, friendships, or bonds of the lifelong kind. This is because we humans are complex characters, and we spend an awful lot of our time second guessing each other, instead of saying how we truly feel.

Many of us lack the ability to set clear boundaries for ourselves, or have difficulty communicating our boundaries to others - leading to ...

Assertiveness, praised in the workplace as it is, isn’t a standalone quality.

It has a direct impact on many other markers of career and life success.

Would you, for example, have imagined that how assertive you are can influence how well you’re able to manage your time?

Well, it absolutely can, and most of us would probably like to get a bit better at managing - and making the most of - our time. Becau...

Having good communication skills can improve every area of life. From picking up the phone to make a simple enquiry, to having a more fulfilling relationship with your partner. But never is the benefit more apparent than in the workplace. It can mean the difference between getting the job, or not, and every opportunity that comes thereafter. So here are a few of the crucial ways in which developing your communic...

A lot of careers happen by accident. Either because we leave school and apply for the first position in the first company that comes up and then end up staying there for a decade, or because we’re naturally just quite gifted at something and so it sticks.

And corporate training is one of those things that people often take to, by default. This isn’t wrong, of course! In fact it’s to be admired that we opt...
