On this week’s episode I’m talking with Anne Golden hospitality industry veteran and General Manager of Pan Pacific London, opening next year. Now we all know that the hospitality industry, in particular, has been so severely hit by the pandemic.

I believe that so much of building strong mental health and resilience lies in our hands. For me it’s about self-awareness more than anything else.

I think it’s something quite…

Welcome to our final episode in this special series - 7 skills for times of uncertainty. This week - RESILIENCE. We may like to think of resilient people being super strong and robust – to some extent - yes they are - but they also have a lot of strategies built into their lives – strategies that anyone can build. I think the main trouble is, is th…
 
When everything around you is uncertain, when you feel anxious and confused, when you are buffeted and swayed by media, news and not sure what to believe.... can you really then still feel optimistic and hopeful? I say yes you can! You see, optimism definitely isn’t about positive thinking and putting a shiny gloss on everything and being happy all…
 
For me being proactive is all about showing up in your own life. There are really 2 aspects to being proactive – in the short-term, focusing on what you can control – also finding the space between stimulus and response - stimulus being anything from the news to what someone says to a disappointment or setback or something unexpected. The other sid…
 
What role does integrity play in a time of crisis?

They’re important right now more than ever because the situation we are in is SO unpredictable and is constantly changing.

Why talk about quitting? I think this is an interesting topic because often this word is associated with something negative - a bit like losing or giving up. And I think there can be very good reason to quit something as well as good reasons to keep going. For me quitting is a bit like letting go or making a conscious choice to let go. At the same …

We all need more joy in our lives! In this episode James and I dive deep into JOY. It’s something deep inside us and something I feel we have lost sight of.
