You may have noticed the recent presence of the name Spotlight on Performance and the link to its blog in the blogroll to the right.
By combining our passion for professional and personal development and love of the theatre, the objective of this venture by Rob Cameron (@robjcameron on Twitter) and myself is to help people perform at their full potential, knowing society benefits when individuals operate at their best.
Considering life from a wide perspective, daily each of us are figuratively on stage – in the spotlight – as we perform our tasks, chores and duties. Theatre represents the immediacy of performance; retakes are rare within the workplace, no second chances to make a good first impression.
Perhaps the words attributed to the legendary Bruce Lee sum it all up best: “To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one’s potential.”
Whether through co-active coaching, training, teaching, writing or the activities of Spotlight on Performance, professional and personal development remains at the heart of my work and fortunately, as the stage gets bigger, the opportunities for learning more myself increase.
Thanks for reading this today.
