It is surprising how many people at the top of organisations are not really sure that they want to be there. This is not immediately apparent as you observe them going about their daily tasks of running the business.

The real issues emerge when you take someone off the treadmill, remove them to another environment and start to explore issues around time and energy and behaviour and personality. When you apply this thinking to aspects of work and family and hobbies and the local community then the gaps start to appear.

People say “Well I wish I could spend more time with my children” or “We haven’t had a proper holiday for four years”.

And the really surprising thing is the number of people that make a fundamental change to their lives as a result of this kind of discussion. Those that don’t make any changes usually go back to work feeling a lot more confident about what they are doing and why they are doing it.

So it’s win:win really.
