MOJO interview about peaking, repeat peaking and realisations


A look back during the year I had the chance to reflect on a meeting and subsequent first interview with Gary Bertwhistle, MOJO Radio. We were enjoying being part of the Tour de Cure signature ride from Brisbane to Sydney. This was an absolutely amazing event which you can read more about 'Wouldn't it be awesome to cure cancer.' Gary is one of the founders of this great event and charity. Our chat that night was free flowing and great fun sharing insights and learnings after many years in striving for peak performance.

Our first interview was an impromptu chat a few days into the tour ride. After which Gary asked if we could do another interview and for so many reasons I agreed. This is the second instalment and along with Gary leading the change we got to explore some fantastic topics.

The MOJO Radio podcast has so many gems which can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere.

Cracking Solution for Developing Leaders & Teams

Cornerstone Growth Edition

For some time I have been trying to find a tool or platform which helps facilitate the work I have done with teams and leaders of teams. A little while back I came across the Cornerstone system and was intrigued. So I reached out and started working to understand if it could be a link between the work of a facilitator and coach when you have groups together from a business with the aim of improving performance and helping them make their team better.

In Cornerstone I think I have found a great technology ally that when combined with effective group facilitation and one on one coaching can make a significant difference. Importantly there are no silver bullets with these process and connecting parts. Its all still requires effort, learning and commitment. This combination however is a pretty good solution for creating more real time reflection and feedback loops along with the opportunities to improve relationships with peer, reports and managers.
