I spent a few hours in Cornwall park in the weekend (Aucklanders will be familiar). It was great to spend some time with trees and grass and birds and daffodils and lambs. Especially the lambs! I felt much better.

There is plenty of empirical evidence that spending time in nature improves our mood, enables us to perform better, improves mental health and wellbeing. In these crazy times of lockdown, semi-lockdown, working from home, uncertainty and change it is even more important to ensure you have a connection with nature. Get a pot plant, pat you pet, it all helps!

Use your strengths in uncertain times

Well, for those of us in Auckland, we are in lockdown again. (Just when we though we were making some progress). Just goes to show that change and uncertainty are a given. One thing I suggest for leaders and teams I work with is to look at how their strengths might help them navigate these challenging times. For example, two of my unrealised strengths are persistence and bounce back. Both very valuable to dial up right now to keep me on my path and work through any setbacks driven by the environment.

If you would like to understand your strengths better there are several tools available to help identify them. The picture below is an extract from "Strengths Profile" - I am accredited in this tool for both individuals and teams. Get in touch if you would like to find out more.

Accountability is a very hot topic for a team I am working with. Last week we confronted it head on and talked about accountability versus responsibility versus authority. Do you know the difference? And could the distinction be useful for your team? What we thought would be a simple conversation turned very complex very quickly. If you would like to find out more, feel free to get in touch.

Thank you Tammy Turner, MCC for the material that formed the basis of the conversation.
