EVOLUTIONARY LEADERS are revolutionary by nature. They like to create paradigm shifts, challenge the status quo, and leave a legacy. These type of leaders as self- aware, emotionally intelligent, people orientated, top-end performers. They lead by example and are role models for those who lead. They are addicted to the process of getting better. They lead from a higher purpose and vision, fuelled by making a difference and developing better people, leader- ship, and results for all concerned.
On my way back to Nassau this week after 10 weeks in Europe I watched a 2-part documentary on the life of Muhammad Ali called What’s my Name Muhammad Ali produced by HBO. An incredible look into the life of one of the greatest leaders in the 20th and 21st century.

Learning how to control our emotions will give us the best performance. If we don’t, we’re out of control, which will not lead to great performance. Learning to master our emotions and channel them correctly will give us the freedom to be present. This is the place where all good things are created from.

It starts with our thinking and self-talk and then moves into our feelings, influencing our communication, behavior and then our results.

I had the privilege and fortune to witness possibly the greatest Wimbledon Final in history on Sunday.

Inspired while watching the greats like Borg, McEnroe, Connors and Becker as a young boy on TV while growing up in NZ.
Sea Levels are rising and there is nothing we can do to stop them. This is the latest Scientific findings from John Englander a US scientist specialising in sea levels.
All things happen in cycles and we are the cutting edge of a 400,000-year ice age cycle. Over this time 4 ice ages have occurred, the last ice age peaked 22,000 years ago. Since then the temperature has warmed 5 degrees, releasing Co2 from the ocean as the oceans warmed, increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from 180 ppm to 280ppm, rising sea levels over 400f
Recent climate change protests in the UK by the activist group Extinction Rebellion have caused the UK government to take action. MP’s approved a motion to declare an environment and climate emergency, the first government in the world to do so. Protests were fueled by anger over inaction on climate change and those the activist group saw who are funding the destruction of the planet.
