Work and people I admire

There are so many people and organisations that I admire, doing great and admirable work. And I want to share the goodness with the world! Below you’ll find a selected mix of people, organisations and resources that I have found helpful personally and professionally.

This list will change and grow over time. I’d love to hear about people, organisations and resources that you’ve found helpful – you can email me, or send me a note via my contact page.

  • Carley Nicholson at Vitality Unlimited. Carley helps you identify simple, smart actions to support your wellbeing and success.
  • Brooke Trenwith at Potential to Performance. Brooke supports students, parents and educators to maximise learning and turn potential into performance.
  • Jeremy Dean’s Emotional Culture Deck, a great way to build emotional intelligence for individuals, teams and families. Contact me for the code to get a 10% discount on your purchases.
  • Brené Brown, a gifted researcher and storyteller in the areas of courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. She has written multiple books, and hosts two podcasts, all of which I cannot recommend highly enough. If I had to pick one, it would be Dare to Lead, which brings together so much of her knowledge, insights and wisdom.
  • Positive Psychology.com, a repository of knowledge, insight and resources for applying research-backed positive psychology principles to work and life.
  • Conscious Leadership Institute, an organisation dedicated to building conscious business cultures of trust and intentionality. I particularly love their work on being above or below the line, explained in the simple video ‘Locating Yourself‘.
  • Angela Duckworth, researcher and author, an expert in measuring and building “grit” (the ability to stick with things and see them through).
  • Jon Acuff, author of multiple books that have helped me get out of overthinking, through procrastination, and into results.
  • Greg McKeown, author of Essentialism, and in my opinion even more importantly, Effortless.
