  • Igniting a love of language and fascination with the human condition.
  • The extraordinary similarities between countries but vast differences in cultures.
  • We all look at the world through our own unique lens.

  • Culture is the rules of belonging.
  • Leading with core values with a combination of empathy and high expectations.
  • When you are changing something, tell them the ten things that are not changing.

  • If you want to change something in life you have to notice what you are doing now.

Active CEO Performance Tip

Own Your OWN FREEDOM – Are you content with how you are living your life or the way that you might be living someone else’s life? Find the passion, happiness & direction in your life. What fuels the fire in your belly? What are you willing to sacrifice to fulfill your passion? What allows you to feel content and fall asleep at ease? What is your purpose and direction in life? Questions to ask yourself – 1. What makes you come alive. 2. What are your innate strengths. 3. Where do you add greatest value

“Everyone looks through their own lens at the world. Meet people where they are. Attempt to see the world through their eyes. Listen intently to what is said and not said. Try to imagine yourself dealing with the pressures with who ever you are speaking with is dealing with on a day to day basis, because everybody has them.” Fiona Robertson on the rules of belonging, on the active CEO Podcast.

“Our brains are very good at keeping us safe, they believe that to belong is to be safe. They will resist consciously and unconsciously a change to the rules of belonging.” Discussing how the human brain reacts to change with Fiona Robertson, on the active CEO Podcast.

Active CEO Performance Tip

Leadership Overwhelm – As a leader, have you ever felt completely overcome in mind or emotion, where you feel a stress or combination of stressors are too big for you to manage? This is the feeling of overwhelm. Everyone experiences some level of overwhelm and the important thing to remember, is that it is all manageable. Rather than fighting your feelings of overwhelm you can accept that anxiety is like riding a wave and it will be easier; learn to turn overwhelming thoughts into helpful thoughts; shift your thoughts from having to complete everything right now to focusing on one thing at a time; identify what you need to be present with right now; take a deep breath to relax the body; and most importantly engage in an action that you enjoy before rushing into solve the trigger of overwhelm. Start taking control of your overwhelm today.
