Do you remember playing pass the parcel as a child? Holding onto the parcel and hoping that the music would stop whilst it’s in your hands. Hoping that you would get the big present in the middle of the parcel?

With both personal and business relationships we need to un-wrap the outer layers to get to the prize at the middle.

The world of business is overflowing with "professionals" who try to be pristine and perfect, but they come across as having suffered a charisma by pass and have as much depth as a cardboard cut out. It’s not about being professional, it’s about being authentic.

When you come from a place of authenticity doors open and people let you in.

When you speak your truth people will trust you.

When you open your heart, it gives permission to those around you to open their heart.

Your authenticity removes the wrapping and is the foundation to your brand.

The Camping Trip

A bin man went with his son on a camping trip to celebrate his son completing his PhD.

They set up their tent and fell asleep.

Some hours later, the father wakes his son and asks: "Look up to the sky and tell me what you see?"

Son: "I see hundreds of stars."

Father: "And what does that tell you?"

Son: "Given what I can see, I can extrapolate that there must be millions of galaxies, planets and stars in the universe."

Father sighs and says: "You idiot. Someone has stolen our tent."
