  • Lessons from Mae : White Water Group
    men don t like women who are brighter than them but as Mae says her mother lived in different times So Mae in the earlier part of the 20 th century set out to do things differently and become a powerful woman in her own right The book title comes from the quote Some Women know how to get what they want Others don t I ve always known how In Mae s case you might assume that what she wanted was often diamonds and sex but she was also very clear about developing and protecting her personal brand and the power that that contained Leadership brand is something that women and probably many men don t always spend time or energy reflecting on Your brand is the distillation and embodiment of those values vision and purpose which run through you like writing through a stick of rock A few questions to help you focus What do you stand for What do you want people to say about you What do you want to be known for Just as Mae had her brand and wouldn t dream of being interviewed without full make up costume and pack of adoring men

  • Surviving Christmas – Week 4 : White Water Group
    fact that many phone messages were sent just before the Twin Towers fell in New York None of those message were of hate or even irritation They all took that last chance to talk of love We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to tell people how much we love them this Christmas and even to tell them some of the reasons Go on be schmaltzy focus on the best in the people around you and don t leave the good stuff unsaid It may not entirely make up for being stuck in the Channel tunnel most UK airports or even one of our stricken mainline train stations due to the wrong kind of snow but it will create its own more productive climate change 23 Dec There s one day left before Christmas This is the point where prioritising becomes essential I spoke early in the month about not aiming to be perfect Positive psychology talks about maximisers and satisficers I know dreadful words The former always get the absolutely right thing whether it is a table in a restaurant a job or a Christmas present The latter aim high too but know when to say That will do Interestingly research shows that the satisficers tend to be much happier in the long run perhaps because they do not get so tense trying to be perfect My best friend was admitted to hospital today so the time table went out of the window the final frills went unattended because nothing matters as much as love and friendship Just try to remember that when half the fairy lights go on the blink Try keeping one eye shut perhaps Christmas Eve Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse
