As regular readers will be aware, we’re on a mission to share our human performance expertise with the world. We’ve been working for a while in Australia and had a lot of fun and a lot of impact, working with customers down under for the last few years – so much so, that we’re aiming to add to that group of customers and trusted performance partners.
This comes from Dan Dobson -Smith, Chief Learning & Culture Officer at Essence, one of the most admired digital agencies on the planet. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
I’m writing this from Melbourne Airport, en route back home to the UK after a great couple of weeks working with some of our Australian customers. Airports make me reflect – they represent endings and beginnings, so it seems like the perfect time to put pen to paper.
Our blog star this week is AXA Senior HR business partner Ben Andrews, a previous customer of ours who is on his quest to emulate a boyhood hero and discover something about himself along the way! Ben’s hero was Rocky Balboa; the grit, determination, dedication, pain and triumph...fist thrust defiantly in the air, theme tune ringing in his ears, young Ben was inspired.
The week’s blog comes from Simon Chodziesner, a K2 Performance Coach based in Melbourne. For those of you who are avid blog readers, you may remember a blog from Simon back in October, just before he underwent major heart surgery. Back by popular demand, Simon shares his rehab experiences, taking of course, a high performance lens to reflect on his recovery!

On PlanetK2, Jane’s our friendly, efficient, energetic, enthusiastic office administrator, customer co-ordinator and all round superstar. What came out of the interview was a useful reminder to us about goals being useful, whatever performance you might be pursuing, when you use them effectively.
For many Christmas and New Year is a time for rest. Phew! Thank goodness for that. If you feel like you’re working harder than ever maybe you need one. And if you think 2017 is going to be harder again then you’d better get a plan in place for keeping it up.
We had our end of year meeting this week. Everyone in the company getting together to have the chance to relfect on 2016, increase our sense of togetherness and get ready for how we want to PERFORM in 2017. Excellent!
