An army sniper, a magician, a globe trotting TV cameraman walk into a bar...

No joke! I've been all three. The simple truth is I was not gifted in any of them. I learned that hard work and resilience and attitude beats talent. I learned every workplace is a university or a prison and I held the keys. Is this a message you want your employees to hear?

Being unhappy at work is not a life sentence

If you have lost your sense of hope and opportunity in your job then know this ... you’re not alone. Globally people feel deflated at work. There’s a mismatch between what employees hope for and what  jobs can deliver. There's a lot of frustration that things aren't better.

Problem is frustration often looks like the wrong attitude. Many employees are self sabotaging opportunities right at their fingertips as they stumble on, feeling  unrecognised, unappreciated, unheard.

The good news is attitude - the way you approach life and work - can be rekindled and forged into a tool that works for you, not against.

The right attitude is rare these days… and what’s rare becomes valuable. This book shows you how to become valuable, in the process elevating yourself from demanding to in demand.

This book shows you how to reclaim your worth. 

Find out how you can stand-up, get noticed and get back in control of your hopes and ambitions.

Make your event engaging

"I don't think we have ever had such an entertaining and educational feature at any previous meetings. The most impressive point is that each of our 115 attendees could take something practical away that they could use on a daily basis in their workplace, I really don't think I have seen a group of medical professionals laugh that much!" Adam Westerink- Australian Institute of Radiography
