2020 has been an unprecedented year for technology. The disruption caused by COVID-19 quickly forced organizations to reprioritize their technology objectives and strategies overnight to enable them to operate in a newly remote environment. But it isn’t just how and where employees work that has drastically altered. In the space of just a few short months there have also been huge changes in...


We’re coming up to the time of year when many people will overindulge during the festive holiday and then make ambitious resolutions about all the healthy behaviours they are going to undertake in the new year. Gym memberships tend to explode in January, but it is usually quiet again a couple of months later. The problem is we all have some unhealthy habits and replacing them with healthier...


As we approach another new year, are you feeling, dreaming and anticipating failure when you think about setting new goals or resolutions? You know that goals work and that you should set them. The Internet is awash with advice for setting SMART or other clever-sounding goals. So, you set some. And then by the 1st of February, you are back in the guilt of not following through. Is this...


More than any other in recent history, 2020 has been a year of leadership lessons. In just a matter of months, we’ve learnt how to adapt our organizations to a rapidly changing market. We’ve learnt how to work and collaborate in new ways – and how to ensure our people are doing the same – all from a distance. We haven’t always known the answers to the questions posed to us along the way, and...


The holidays are a prime time for catching up with loved ones – whether that will be in person or over video calls this year. However, if you are currently feeling unhappy in your current role, you are, no doubt, dreading being asked the inevitable question: “So how is your job going?” You wouldn’t mind usually, but right now this is a loaded question, simply because the truthful answer...


If you have been unhappy in your job for quite some time, you likely can’t wait to escape for a week or two over the Christmas period. Of course, this time is all about relaxing and catching up with loved ones, and you need to enjoy this well-earned break. However, if you are already dreading that first day back in the New Year, then you may want to set some time aside during the...


The festive season is upon us and most of us are looking forward to a well-earned break to rest and catch up with friends and family – even if some of us are having to do that virtually. There is a tendency to see this period as “downtime”, and so it should be; you have worked hard for it all year after all. And what a year it has been. However, if you are already dreading going back to...


Globally, 2020 has been a year of disruption like no other. The devasting bushfires that ravaged over 18 million hectares of Australia were swiftly followed by COVID-19, the worst pandemic in recent history. Tragedy and turmoil trailed in its wake. But this crisis also forced us to pivot, innovate and adopt solutions that may otherwise have taken years to achieve.    In the world of...


If you are looking to advance your career in the 2021 job market, it will require a determined effort to stand out and a willingness to disrupt your pre-COVID-19 job searching approach. There’s no denying that COVID-19 has – and will continue to have – a hugely disruptive effect on everything to do with the world of work. Our working approach has changed and we’re prioritizing differently than...
