The Ultimate Team and Leadership Challenge

Friday, March 26th, 2010

What does this video tell you about teams and leadership and rising to the challenge?

As I watch it I see so many lessons about what we do – and don’t do – in the workplace when we are leading a team to achieve great results like this…

Could you motivate your team to do anything this complex – in one take? What would it take?

Watch this amazing video and share your thoughts and comments below. I’ll hunt out some prizes for the best contributions next week.

PS. I have now sent a small gift to everyone who commented, to say thanks for your thoughts. (27 April)

My tenth birthday

Monday, February 18th, 2008

I have been working so hard on developing the Leadership Coaching Club I’ve been a little remiss in posting to this blog recently, and even sending out Leading Well, however I can’t let today pass without sharing the importance of this day.

KMG Consulting ten years ago

Today, February 18th 2008 marks exactly ten years since KMG Consulting joined the internet age.  

That first website at http://kmgconsulting.com.au looked very different from what you will see today.  (Maybe you even remember it? – If you do, a big Thank you for your support over the past ten years!)

Nowdays it is expected that any serious business will have a website.  But 1998 was a time when there were only about 2.5 million other websites in the whole world, so it was pretty fancy! 

No one knows how many sites there are today.  Some sources say there may be up to 550,000,000,000 with 7.3 million new pages added every day.  I certainly have many more websites now, as you probably know.  But that one was the first one for me so I wanted to share it’s tenth birthday with you.  

Xmas news

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

It’s a busy time of year, and it’s hard not to wonder where the year went!  Here in Australia the days are getting longer and hotter, summer holidays are looming and Santa is struggling to stay cool in his fur trimmed outfit.  It’s hard to believe there have been record cold snaps in other parts of the world.  

But all that means there are a couple of things I want to say to you.  

First, thank you for allowing me to work with you again this year.  Whether I’ve coached or trained you personally or your whole business team, whether I’ve spoken at your leadership conference or facilitated your strategic planning process, or just visited each month via Leading Well, it’s been a privilege and a pleasure to work with you.  We have some really exciting things planned for 2008, so keep an eye out early in the new year for details.  

Last year we offered you some special gifts to download for Christmas to thank you for being a part of our life and they were very popular.  So once again we have gathered together a selection of special Christmas gifts for you and your family. We have added some to help you celebrate the festive season as well as something to help you get off to a great start in 2008. Please accept these Christmas gifts with our compliments.  You will find them here:  http://www.leadershipskillcenter.com/thankyou/xmas.php 

Soon it will be time to take a break to focus on family, fun and festivity for a little while.  We hope, like us, you can look back at lots of good things achieved in 2007, as well as being excited by everything to come in 2008.  

To start the year in mid-January the Leadership Coaching Club will finally open for membership.  Watch for it.  There will be special offers and bonuses for the first people to join as Foundation members, so watch your email from mid-January.  If you want to be the FIRST to know, make sure you sign up for priority notification at

http://www.leadershipcoachingclub.com That way you won’t miss out on getting in early as soon as it is open.  It’s going to be a great program that anyone who is serious about leading and managing people will want to be a part of, so you won’t want to miss it.  

We also have a whole range of other products and programs planned to help you on your path to easy, effective and effortless leadership, that I can’t wait to share with you next year.  

But for now Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at KMG Consulting and the Leadership Skill Center.  

…HO…HO…HO…  And I haven’t forgotten … Here’s that link for your special Christmas gifts again:  http://www.leadershipskillcenter.com/thankyou/xmas.php (because we know you’ve been good this year!)

Kind regards, Kerrie

PS.  It’s Christmas!  Of course you can share that link with anyone who would like to download a gift for Christmas.  Here it is again:

Mission statements for great companies

Monday, July 17th, 2006

Do you need a new mission statement?

You have two choices:

  1. You could employ a highly skilled facilitator (like me :) ) to help you and your team generate something meaningful and profound that offers true guidance and direction as you grow and develop, or
  2. you could do it on the cheap using the Dilbert Mission Satement Generator.

Actually come to think of it I think I’ve seen some companies who took the second option…

Need help writing an employee performance review?

Friday, May 26th, 2006

Try this Performance Review Generator!

It offers just the wording you were searching for… Or at least it will give you a laugh before you get back to work.

Have a good weekend, Kerrie

Add a touch of magic

Tuesday, March 28th, 2006

If you’ve attended one of our seminars or presentations you’ll know that we like to have a bit of fun, even when we are working hard. We believe that a good leader, and a good strategic plan, can create fantastic results, just like magic!

Ma’gic, a & n
“Inexplicable or remarkable influence producing surprising results.”

Just recently one of my clients reminded me that you can do magic at our KMG Consulting website.
