Building mental resilience in the work-place.

We all need to regularly check ourselves for physical signs of dis-ease, don’t we? You know the sort of thing, Body Mass Index, lumps and bumps in various places, moles and marks on our skin. What do we do when we discover any of the above? The best practice is to take a trip to the GP. Why? To chat it through, to find out if there is anything to worry about.

Authenticity versus fake news.

In this age of the drive for the perfect public face, how can we be authentic as we live? How do we not become our own fake news? Is it perfection that draws others to us, or does it drive them resolutely away?

Extrovert versus introvert
