Effect on Emotions

  • Being more mindful and more aware of my emotions and the impact it has on me and other people is the way in which I work with mindfulness and emotional intelligence. Sometimes I don't get it right. 

Thoughts on Breathing

  • If I stop breathing I stop living, so I feel that appropriate use of breath and concentration on breath is very useful in terms of mindfulness.
  • If I have 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or 10 seconds, I think to myself, now is the time to focus on my breathing and I can have a mindful minute.

Bullying Story

  • I had an experience around the concept of bullying. About 10 years ago I was doing some research with a colleague of mine who works with EI4Change, Doug Haynes. Doug and I were researching this concept of resilience.
  • Everybody was talking about resilience, but what does it mean? We put together something called, Images of Resilience. Later, we set about designing and creating cards that supported the field of bullying.
  • We covered confidence and assertiveness and rising to the challenge, with a knight fighting a dragon. Both of the cards have now been integrated into the coaching toolbox. This has resulted in wonderful, cathartic conversations around bullying in organizations, schools, and industry.
