Career review & next year

The end of the year is typically a time when we all consider what has happened during the year and to think ahead to what we might want to do next year. The pandemic certainly created additional challenges and many left their career development behind whilst they focused on getting through each day! If that was you, now is particularly [...]

Setting the parameters for hybrid working

Many people have started to work in a hybrid way. If you have, how is it going? It is absolutely essential that it is set up well with everyone getting a chance to have their say and clear parameters being set. Without this happening, there will be many negative consequences – resentment, reduced productivity and negative behaviour cycles – to name but a [...]

Ten key tips to boost your career success

November 2021 marks ten years since I started Inside Out Image, time has truly flown. The business I run today is different in many ways to the one I started. I feel so fortunate to enjoy my work so much. I have worked with many different clients both individually and in groups and seen so much progress and success; I [...]

Does your career deserve some TLC as you venture back to the office?

You may or may not have started to spend some time in the office, different companies and individuals are taking varying approaches. If you have, I wonder whether it feels like old times or not. I think a number of factors will affect this – whether the physical environment has changed such as a different, smaller office, or moved furniture, how [...]

Are you set up for effective hybrid working?

The last year and a half have changed the working lives of many people. Even though we were impacted in different ways by the pandemic and had different elements to balance at home, fundamentally it was a level playing field. Maybe you have already started to go back to the office a few days a month and have got a [...]

Refocus on your career as you venture back to the office

You may or may not have started to go back to the office a few days a week. If you have, I wonder whether you quickly adjusted back or whether it felt extremely odd. I guess a number of factors will affect this – whether the physical environment has changed such as a different, smaller office, or moved furniture, how [...]

You Can’t Succeed Alone

One common blocker for my clients to move on in their career and gain further seniority is that they try to operate on their own. They haven’t built their reputation internally and haven’t worked with other teams within the business. With increased seniority, there is certainly greater responsibility and decision-making power. With this greater responsibility, there is also a greater degree [...]

Interdependency increases with seniority

With increased seniority, there is certainly greater responsibility and decision making power. However, what people often forget is that interdependency increases with seniority. A common mistake people make is to try and operate as a one (wo)man show. When people do this they become overwhelmed, resentful and the workplace culture can be very negative with a lack of idea sharing [...]

Thinking beyond your immediate relationships at work – get strategic

We have now worked at home for a rather long time due to Covid-19! We have all needed to adapt and communication has had to become more intentional, particularly, for those of us used to having casual chats and impromptu meetings or coffees at work. This means that those we don’t need to interact with to get our jobs done are [...]

Strategic relationships post Covid – why and how

“I believe many like me have similar challenges especially with such prolonged period of working remotely and not being able to work face to face to build or maintain positive working relationships.” This was a quote from a client in a recent email to me. I think it sums up the challenge of many with remote working. For some people, [...]
