Michelle’s October news

I’ve just returned to the office this morning from Bali, where I was mentoring at the Wealth Dynamics Masters Programme with Creator of TD and WD Roger James Hamilton. Such a fabulous environment and space for Entrepreneurs from all over the world to take a week out of their businesses and create fantastic flow

filled plans for the next 12 months, with many of those businesses now looking to double in size in the next 12 months.

Its also a great opportunity whilst there to focus on the plans for growth within TD and Jan one of our Master Trainers joined the programme as a participant to do just that!

Special Opportunity to dramatically change the results your team are getting!

The results you have in your business today and in your life are all directly related to the planning you did yesterday. If you’re not satisfied with the results you are getting and know you could get much more, then its time to create a better plan.

We run a Talent Dynamics version of the Wealth Dynamics Masters for clients who are looking to get massively improved results.

Typically, clients have doubled their results within 12 months of following our programme. Its a 3 day workshop called Meaningful, Measurable, Profitable Change and its known as Step 2 on the Talent Dynamics Pathway.

We are looking for just one UK based company who is motivated to see dramatic improvements in their results right now to work with us!

Oh and we are offering a staggering 50% off the RRP for the right team!

Here is a case study from one of our clients who attended this programme.

Have a fabulously flow filled month ahead!

Una’s spotlight: Swinging times!

I was at a networking event last week that had a musical session instead of a speaker and it really got me thinking…

Swing singer Richard Daniels was absolutely superb (you can listen to samples here www.richsingswing.co.uk) and I had a smile on my face all day! I realised that I had got out of the habit of listening to music. I used to go dancing a lot so that and listening to tunes in the car used to top me up. However these days I haven’t been dancing in quite a while and since I switched to my ipod it was often just too much hassle to connect up in the car.

As a Star Profile, in improving my own performance recently I’ve been getting more focused and measuring more. I’ve been getting in touch with Tempo and Steel energy, not getting out of flow but enough to ensure that my Star energy isn’t whittered away. However what I hadn’t really considered as much is my Spirit energy.

Spirit energy is the space that you step into when considering your purpose as it’s all about the Why? It’s the place great leaders go when working with their teams so they are more open to other’s needs and communication preferences. The Spirit energy is where you find your inner motivation.

As I sat grinning, swaying and tapping along to the music in that networking meeting (yes it probably was a sight!) I realised that music is a great way for me to connect to Spirit energy. I take time each week to meditate a few times – even if it’s down the gym in the Jacuzzi! However with high Dynamo and Blaze energy in my profile make-up something livelier, with great possibilities for variety would also be good.

So with newly synchronised tunes on my iPhone 4s now I have no excuse. (Wow, I just asked Siri to play me something by Robbie Williams music and I’m now listening to Nan’s Song!)

So what do you need to do to connect with you, with your Spirit energy more? Have you got time scheduled every week to do the things that make your heart sing and if not, why not? What are one or two little things that you could do that will fit in with your lifestyle? What will help you to get more in flow?

If you’re worried that doing these things will affect your productivity then please don’t. The chances are that these activities will actually improve your motivation, increase your energy levels and your overall performance. Have fun!

Jan’s Corner: On Apples and meaningful business

The co-founder and former CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs passed away last week and millions of people around the world remembered him, experiencing, what I can see as, a mixture of sadness and gratitude.

Yes, an amazing human being and business pioneer died of terminal illness. However, it doesn’t happen very often that the world remembers or even mourns a business leader. Typically, CEOs, regardless of their business accomplishments, are usually remembered by a close community of people from their private and business life, and maybe by a short media tribute summarising their lives, but not by an army of strangers – customers and fans from wider society – from countries they have never been to.

Steve didn’t just stand behind the rise of a formidable hi-tech company, but left a much more palpable legacy which has outgrown from his passion for making amazing and elegant technology available to everyone and dedication to always create something beautiful and great.

Many people have heard his quote in Wall Street Journal that “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me… Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”

Steve Jobs was an inspiring example of someone who focused on the “right” things in business and allowed the rest – including the financials – to ensue. Above all, he knew Why he was in business and Why he focused on computing.

That’s how he inspired people and led his companies and his teams. For instance, in the 80‘s he recruited a top executive John Sculley from Pepsi to be Apple’s CEO by famously asking him: “Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life or come with me and change the world?”

It is obvious that Steve was a mortal human like you and I, but what really intrigues me is what made the difference. What would happen if we brought the same level of focus to the businesses we manage and people we lead?

What if we ongoingly asked – regardless of our position or formal responsibility:

:: Why are we really in business?

:: Why are we really in this particular business?

:: What are we committed to bring to the world that is wonderful, valuable and lasting (and not just a fair exchange)?

:: Is our company an exciting and rewarding place to come to every day? If not as much as we like, what can we create to make it the wonderful place it deserves to be?

:: How are we changing the world for the better?

Ponder these, and you may be surprised what opens up. I certainly was.

And just one more thing.

Steve Jobs wasn’t perfect, actually far from it. But he was authentic and that’s what I’d say made the difference. Don’t check out who you are at your office entrance door. Rather allow yourself to be yourself at work. Bring your real self to the table with both your strengths and your weaknesses… and allow the same privilege to everyone else on your team and in your company. It may be risky but without it you can hardly expect that something really great and wonderful will happen.
