Boost team performance through better connections

We’re three months into 2022 (yes, already!) and given new year’s resolutions tend to drop off by about week three, now feels like the perfect time to take stock. Many of us are returning to the office, networking, socialising – and just generally getting back to ‘normal’. But does that mean we actually feel more […]

Strong connections are key to ‘new normal’ ways of working 

And we’re not talking about your wi-fi I was recently looking at a banner in my home office that was made when we first launched The Intime Collective which reads ‘wellbeing at home, wellbeing at work’.  Back then (well before COVID) this was something that had to be explained. I’d enter meetings armed with research […]

The 9 secret ingredients for a Valentine’s Day you’ll never forget

It’s that time of year again. It’s coming up to Valentine’s Day, and our supermarket aisles are filled with all its cutesy trappings. You know the drill: teddy bears, red-and-pink card displays, roses, chocolates. Things that smell nice, or taste good, or even sparkle a little… and all in the name of a little thing […]

Emotional Flooding and the pursuer-distancer cycle

We’ve been navigating all sorts of changes in our relationships over the last 12 months (if you’ve been working from home, may well have seen more of your partner in the last year than you have in the rest of your relationship!). I’ve heard from many friends and clients who have described seeing their partners […]

Coaching — it’s all about giving back!

2021 is finally upon us – and it’s fair to say we’ve been hanging out for it! I’m so buzzed about the year ahead. It’s a cliché, but this year of all years, I think a lot of us will be looking forward to the fresh start. In some cases, that will include reflections on […]
