Kathy Ready has taken the step up to help co-ordinate Team Dynamic Profiling, manage DASHBOARD logisitcs, and will also be in charge of Customer Relations Management. We are thrilled to have Kathy on-board and look forward to expansion in the new year with TDP workshops more popular than ever. This further cements ISL's advancement in SmartLeaderApps and an increasing online presence with clients.
Barbara Kuriger (SLP and MBA alumnus) won the Taranaki King Country seat in Saturday's election.
Barbara joins Hon Bill English (SLP alumnus), the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, on the National Party benches in Parliament.
Congratulations to Barbara and Bill on their personal achievements and the overwhelming success of the National Party (winning 48% of the vote).
It is our hope that these two ISL graduates will lead strategically, firing up the economic engine of our country by enabling export focused SMEs to reach out internationally.
We are pleased to know that there are now at least two ISL Strategic Leaders at the helm of our country and we hope the number increases over the years ahead.
Congratulations to Susan Middleditch, Deputy Director General, Queensland Health, on being awarded a scholarship to attend a course at Harvard, by the Australian Harvard Alumni Association.
Susan has already attended the Strategic Leadership Programme, and the ISL | MBA. We always say that: If You've Attended Harvard, You May Be Ready For Millbrook". Susan is taking these steps, albeit in reverse order. It's a great achievement and endorsement, and I am sure that Susan will relish her time learning with other inspiring leaders at this world class institution.

If you are doing a job that is just 'ok' - push your 'restart button' or find a new one. One that aligns with your natural talents and feels like a hobby. One that doesn't seem like work at all.
The reality is that if you are not really passionate about your job, your colleagues and staff won't be either. The best leaders are 'battery chargers'. They send out positive WiFi signals, connect with others and fully engage those they work alongside.
In most situations it's about taking time out to refresh and reflect - but for some, it may be time to find a role that comes naturally. A role that enables you to play to your strengths.
If this rings a bell - here's an invitation to measure your Mojo and ask yourself if you have the passion required to engage those who look to you for leadership.
"Flow is the mental of operation in which a person is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does." Wikipedia
