Start Over

Is your business becoming a daily GRIND?


I engage with clients who find themselves exhausted because they have had to step in and micro-manage their employees in order to get the job done in fear of losing business. They know their employees are unhappy and de-motivated, contributing to their bad attitudes towards their poor performance.


The reality is this management style is not sustainable and you will burn out if you continue to carry your people and your business. If you have had enough and want to change your situation, you need to shift from Micro-Manager to High-Performance Coach and get to the root of their unhappiness.


Are you interested in finding out what your generations of employees are CRAVING?


Some would say the younger generations come from planet Mars, Millennials seem to be held entirely responsible for craving development and growth in their roles. I thought I was not strictly classified as a Millennial, born prior to 1980, and VALUE personal GROWTH. According to Google, I am classified as a “Xennial” which is apparently an “older Millennial, how interesting, I still fit into the box!


 So, what can YOU do to fix your BROKEN CULTURE?


The employees who have stepped in and the younger generations stepping in, see business, processes, structures differently. They have new perspectives and insights on how you can achieve your desired outcomes and significantly increase productivity.


So, what then is preventing you from acknowledging their insights and taking on their suggestions and implementing those that make business sense?


It’s never too late to START OVER to get to the root cause of their unhappiness and foster a happy workforce and cultivate a GOOD culture!


This is a PROCESS and change will not happen overnight.


Inviting employees for Friday drinks will not improve their happiness levels immediately! Possibly an initiative to implement as part of your action plan after holding those crucial conversations.


Let’s dive into the heart of matters and transform your business into an EXCEPTIONAL one by creating alignment with your business values, fostering communication, focusing on strengths and leveraging TRUST.

Are you playing your people to their strengths?

lI article-strengths-michael-nunes-kd

Often employees find themselves stuck, unfulfilled in their roles and are merely functioning on autopilot. Their only motivation to present themselves at work every day is to collect that monthly paycheck, they live for weekends and absolutely dread a Monday morning, spending Sunday nights filled with anxiety about the idea that they need to face another day in a role which is sapping them of any last drop of inspiration they may have left.

For some this may lead to a state of depression, reaching for medication to cope with this draining job they need to face every day, and may even lead to the employee developing chronic illness and exiting the business due to incapacity or dismissal for poor performance.


Are you willing to prevent this scenario from playing out?

A Gallup analysis reveals that people who use their strengths every day are three times more likely to report having an excellent quality of life, six times more likely to be engaged at work, 8% more productive and 15% less likely to quit their jobs.


Realizing your employees’ strengths and developing a strengths-based culture will contribute to strategic human capital and succession planning and ultimately engaging with happy people on a daily basis and achieving your business targets.


Remaining curious about what makes people tick is a winning perspective to adopt in setting your business and humans up for SUCCESS. Get serious about investing in their development and retaining your talent in your business by adopting the “we play our people to their strengths” attitude.


@Hands-on Human Resources we offer strengths assessments, coaching, and mentorship programs to empower and grow your talent and utilize them in positions where they will feel valued and impact your business positively.

Stress Resilience Rituals – Step into those red heels darlings!

Empty attachment or post type not equal ‘attachment’

STEP INTO YOUR RED PAIR OF HEELS DARLINGS,strike that power pose, and strut your stuff bravely, confidently and courageously!

So the reality of going it alone can be daunting at times especially when your projects have wrapped up and you waiting for the next one to start. My focus has been to keep my eye on the prize, to power through every day and hold the belief that the energy I am investing will not be in-vane and reinforcing that my efforts will bear fruit soon!

I found myself exhausted due to spending countless late nights at my desk researching, developing and marketing my brand, staying on trend, all with a super positive attitude whilst journeying through my personal transformation.

So after exploring and acting on the resources available to continuously improve the version of my service offerings, I was anticipating that phone call or e-mail inquiry. I finally got that call for an inquiry that sounded like it was “in-the-bag”! Shooo, what a relief! After shooting many arrows, I hit something! Super excited about the inquiry,  and the potential client went quiet. The final push for a response was received at the last minute and the service offering was REJECTED with no real clarity on the reasons to assist with improving my offering.

Can you relate?

This had the potential to drive me on a trip down self-doubt and or self-destruction streets OR I could CHOOSE to sail down the river of Resilience and practice these rituals.

So how did I choose to respond?

I chose to shed a frustrating few tears, and expressed a couple of Sh!ts and F*ck’s and then stepped into my gym shoes and realized that my gym was closed. So I streamed a You Tube workout video, selected my favorite playlist(you know those tunes that get you head banging in your lounge disco) and got my sweat on at the foot of my bed, in candle light –be-coz LOAD-SHEDDING! I must have been a sight to see!

I recovered, slept like the dead and woke the next morning to ask myself what lesson I needed to learn? What state of mind is going to help me get to my desired outcome?

I thanked my lovely teachers and put pen to paper. Observed my thoughts, feelings, and listened to the answer and then took action. 

What is my lesson?

My lesson learned is to develop the skill called RESILIENCE. We need to develop that “thick leather skin” which so many people I have engaged with seem to possess naturally.

Then there are people like me, who have had to develop this skill, defined as “the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.

What positive outcomes have come from this?

The positive outcome from this experience is that I have learned a valuable skill which I will apply when faced with experiences such as these again, I have birthed my RESILIENCE RITUALS and have written an article to share my experience with you and empower you with tools to get through a similar situation.

What I have learned is that it is okay to FEEL VULNERABLE and then SNAP OUT OF IT! and then BOUNCE BACK EVEN STRONGER!

Only YOU can choose how you respond to difficulties. Its actually easier to FEEL and RELEASE, and then MOVE ON, then to stay stuck.  Its not an option for us to MOPE and DWELL there! 

I have listed my resilience rituals below for you to try out when faced with those tough situations.


  1. Kill yourself and your teachers with kindness. Beating yourself up about the “what if’s”, the “would’ve”, “could’ve’”, “should’ve ‘s” blah… blah… blah.., serve no purpose!  FEEL the emotion and ACT from a place of LOVE.
  2. Be brave.  Continue to put yourself out there! – Its tough, but POWER through! Keep walking tall, in those heels! Connect with your family and friends.            
  3. Stay Flexible. You need to be able to roll with the punches darlings. Its HARD I know, BUT DO some introspection and be flexible in figuring out what you should do next.
  4. Re-affirm WHY you are doing what you are doing.
  5. Reach out to those in a similar situation. You don’t have to navigate this on your own.
  6. Retreat. Do whatever brings you JOY.Take an Epsom salts foam bath, sauna, steam bath, book a massage, walk on the beach or forest, exercise, meditate, journal, draw, paint or craft. Do what ever helps you raise YOUR vibration.


What did I do to unlearn my old thinking patterns and change my response?

I have changed my story by investing in an NLP Life Coach who is journeying with me, utilizing NLP Techniques to remove fears, limiting beliefs and replacing them with empowering thought patterns that will bring about lasting change.

What does NLP stand for?

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro, refers to your neurology; Linguistic refers to language; Programming refers to how that neural language functions. In other words, learning NLP is like learning the language of your own mind.

What is an NLP Life Coach?

A person who will journey with you to develop yourself using a range of techniques to help you develop new beneficial thinking patterns, shifting your behaviour towards achieving your desired outcomes. This methodology will assist you in removing old habits so you can be a better version of you.

I am so ECSTATICALLY EXITED about my positive life change and cannot wait to journey alongside yours.

Much love,
