Register now for Ascend in November – or risk missing out!!!

Bookings are now open for the final Ascend development day for 2010, to be held around Australia in November.  This is the final Ascend development day for 2010 and with the theme “Reflect and Refocus” participants will be encouraged to not only reflect on their achievements in 2010 but also focus on creating a plan for career success in the new year.

“WOW, what a day Ascend was yesterday!! I enjoyed the day and was really motivated and inspired by the presenters. I have never laughed so much at a workshop before and I took many things away with me that I will use not only in my work but in my everyday life.” Lynda Ross, August Ascend Participant

We are now taking bookings for Ascend in November – to be held in:

  • Adelaide on 10th November;
  • Sydney on 12th November;

An exciting program has now been confirmed for November and will include sessions on what women do to sabotage their careers; what we can learn from the behaviours of successful leaders; defining what success will look like for you in 2011 and a 2-hour workshop led by 3 successful leaders on navigating your next career move and creating a blue print for career success.

Full details on the program for each city are available on the sphinxx events page – where you can also register online.

I look forward to seeing many of you again in November and encourage you to register quickly as this popular program is sure to sell out.

What are the lessons you’re teaching your kids? We took the opportunity of a holiday long weekend to visit my mum interstate as the timing of the trip coincided with my son’s favourite AFL team battling it out against my mum’s beloved team. Perhaps only those of you with the love for AFL will appreciate why we’d plan a long distance trip around a game of footy, but suffice to say it was a passion project! With every ounce of anticipation, the game was a tough, tight duel and could easily have gone either way. Yet when the final siren sounded, it wasn’t our team that was smiling. It sure is tough for a 10 year old boy to sit within a crowd 41,000+ people all cheering for the opposite side. It was tough for him to see the exhaustion and disappointment on the faces of the players he adores. And yet, it’s so important for him to learn that his team won’t always win. There’s so many lessons in that, but the one I chose to instil is that you won’t always back the team that wins but you’ll always back the team that you love. That’s why I asked him to wear his team colours home the next day, and show his support even when the chips are down. That’s the kind of commitment I want my son to learn and the kind of team player I want him to be. PS. #gotheGiants @GWSGiants #neversurrender ... See MoreSee Less

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??

And so, maybe time does change some things. Or women do.
