Client Review
“As an experienced ex-McKinsey consultant I was intrigued by the opportunity to explore the consulting profession from a different perspective. The 3 courses really broadened my skillset and showed me how to stretch my capabilities and leverage my experience into sectors and organisations well beyond those traditionally served by the big consultancies. I'd throughly recommend Mark's professional consulting courses to any ex-MBB (McKinsey, BCG or Bain) consultants seeking to challenge their preconceptions of the consulting profession and optimise their offerings in the real world of independent strategy consulting."

Managing Stress

Stress Reduction for Parents

As a product category there is no doubt that children are woefully faulty. They don’t come with an instruction manual, a money back warranty or even an on/off switch. Kids have more faults than a Toyota and governments everywhere should legislate immediately to protect the innocent and unwary!

Being a parent is a wonderful experience and we love our children to bits and yet, if we are truthful, we frequently find ourselves tearing our hair out with the difficulty of it all. Speaking personally, the younger generation are a major source of stress, up there with long hours, demanding clients and even the challenge of finding new business. Continue reading

How to Think on Your Feet

  4. You are dealing with a difficult person. How do you quickly win them over?
  5. You are about to be mugged. What should you do next?

Managing Stress

Stress is both a hero and villain in our lives. Good stress keeps us sharp, excited, vibrant. It adds colour and texture to life and makes the world an exciting place:

The great new idea. Pitching it to a potential client. The success of winning an engagement. The ‘crikey I’ve now got to deliver it’. The ‘thanks for a job well done’. The next engagement call from a happy client.

Each of these adrenaline rushes is fun, exciting and keeps us on our toes. Good stress is what makes life exciting, an adventure, a journey into the unknown.

Bad stress burns you out and eventually kills you. It’s the unreasonable boss, the over demanding partner/family, the overload of tasks, the 18 hour days, the all nighters, the ‘you get fired if you mess up’ demands of some organisations.

Here are a series of insights to help you understand the role of stress in your life. I aim to show you how to use good stress to your advantage and how to avoid, or at least handle, the bad stuff.
