LEADERS AND LOLLIPOPS

Lollipop Leadership

The seeds of these words were born from a workshop I was asked to deliver on leadership for social entrepreneurs. I developed the theme further for my delivery of Inspirational Leadership for the women leaders of Birmingham. I’m just writing a new workshops for Little Leaders, so the theme of Lollipops will be well used.  So many people talk about … Read More

WHAT MAKES YOU SPARKLE?

Siobhan Harper-NunesDevelopment, The Simple Things

I recently ran one of my favourite workshops: “What Makes You Sparkle”. 30 women focusing on their Sparkle makes for a very sparkly room indeed. As the women talked about their SPARKLE they smiled and they shone. The more they talked and shared with others – sometimes complete strangers – the more luminous they became. Soon the room was alight … Read More

TAKE TIME OUT TO DAYDREAM

Siobhan Harper-NunesBalance, Development, The Simple Things

Giving our creative mind expression is as important as pounding away at our goals and targets. Why? Because every human being needs time to think, to reflect, to simply be. After all, we are HUMAN BEINGS not HUMAN DOINGS and if we let the balance slip, trust me our productivity starts to drop. BALANCE is often under-rated and yet it … Read More

HOW DO I STAY SANE?

Siobhan Harper-NunesBalance, The Simple Things

What a funny question yet that’s precisely what I was asked recently by a colleague: “you’re always so upbeat, even in the eye of a storm, how do you stay sane?”  And yes, I work for 4 voluntary organisations that provide vital services to women as well as running Shakti Women so things can get a little bit “salty” from … Read More

FEELING LIKE A FOX!

Siobhan Harper-NunesDevelopment, The Simple Things

For the past few days I have felt decidedly low. The New Year which I was so excited to herald in brought none of the thrills I was expecting. Instead I felt a profound sense of loneliness – an omen of despair. I locked myself away thinking surely this would pass but when on the third day I still felt … Read More

Isn’t it miraculous

AdminThe Simple Things

Isn’t it miraculous how sometimes the simplest things bring us the greatest pleasure? That unexpected “I love you Mom” from your manly 16 year old son; the smile of a baby as you pass her by on the street; the touch of cool fresh linen sheets after a hot bath and a busy day; the light on a window pane … Read More
