Mark’s Topics

I help CEOs, Managers, Business Owners, Consultants and their Staff get the best possible behaviour, communication and performance from people. And I do it by speaking, training and coaching about how to:

Master Tough Conversations

Master Tough Conversations

because sometimes you need to speak up and say what needs to be said

 

Deal With Difficult People

Deal With Difficult People

because sometimes people don’t do ‘the right thing’ and you need to do something about it

 

Have People Always Put Their Best Foot Forward

Have People Always Put Their Best Foot Forward

because for some people it simply doesn’t come naturally

 

Why these topics?

I haven’t been caught in an avalanche while climbing Mount Everest. I haven’t sailed around the world in an outrigger canoe. And I haven’t survived a shark attack. Heck, I haven’t even been to the Olympics.

 

So no, I don’t speak, train or coach about how I’ve looked death in the face and lived to tell the tale. Or about how I’ve beaten great hardships and overcome adversity. Or about what it took to achieve success on the sporting field. These are all great things of course. But they’re not my topics.

 

My topics come from more than 40 years of experience in different roles, with different organisations, and in dealing with lots of issues and lots of people. They come from my experience as a team member, team leader, manager, manager of managers and consultant. And from my formal qualifications in science, education health and psychology. And of course, my love of ongoing learning.

 

I have a long history. And there’s a fair range of topics and issues I could speak, train and coach about. But these are the topics that are closest to my heart. These are the topics I’m passionate about. And these are topics I love learning about, and love thinking critically about.
