Welcome to The Living Room!

Welcome to The Living Room!

I'm developing this blog to foster a warm community of people interested in ideas, art, science and practice around personal development and flourishing.

I work as an executive coach, and founded a company whose mission is helping people to find success at work in a way that provides satisfaction across all areas of their lives (you can check us out at www.madeleineshaw.com.au).

Leadership, learning, the wonderful brain/body connection, presence, influence, emotions, thinking, effectiveness, flow and FUN.

I want to know more, and do more!

The world is our living room so let's get living.

A short post

Well, legions of breathless fans, I am still here. I returned from 6 weeks away from the desk (2 in training, 4 visiting family and friends in icy northern countries) to discover that someone had quietly replaced the myelin sheathing in my brain with surgical gauze.  That will be what was behind my lingering sense of ennui, and lack of high function. Or low function.

I've gradually restored my brain to its usual self and am looking forward to an exciting year with you in 2011. I'll be announcing a couple of changes in the business and continuing to pursue all that's interesting and fun in the sphere of human performance. 

I've also designated 2011 as an alcohol-free year for me. It's been amazingly easy so far and I'm looking forward to exploring that process, and blogging a little about it, as the months move on.  

In the meantime, check out Flying Solo on Monday, 14 February - I'll have a new article live. It's about whether you're micromanaging yourself, and what you can do about it.

Until next time, happy new year to you!
