Volunteering Care – Experience Satisfaction

I’ve often been curious as to how people define their career and life success as well as how it relates to job satisfaction at a basic level, and having a higher purpose at a more advanced level. A few days ago, I discussed this topic with Dieter Gartelmann, CEO of Stewart Healing Innovations and Design. Despite his success and extensive life experience (he is 76 years old) Dieter has taken on exciting opportunities in volunteering to help others. As you may know, in the healthcare system and in our hospitals, we have

How to Strengthen your Relationships

As I was coaching a few clients last week, I came across an acronym that I thought would be useful to share with some of you particularly with some of you developing professional or personal relationships with people. One of the good ways to structure how you build a relationship as you move towards progress in your life, or in your business, is to think about the acronym FORD. It stands for Family, Occupation, Recreation and Dreams.  Here’s a short video where I discuss FORD for Developing Relationships.

Wellness Bloggers and the Gaps in the Health System

I was approached by an ECU Daily journalist a couple of weeks ago in regards to the Popularity of controversial Wellness bloggers like Belle Gibson is a side-effect of major gaps in health system. See below some insights I shared with Danielle Austin of ECU Daily: How should Consumers approach Wellness Information on the internet? Consumers should exercise a degree of care when looking for wellness information online. Whilst this is the predominant method of research for the vast majority of people these days, it is much harder to make a

Popularity of controversial Wellness bloggers like Belle Gibson is a side-effect of major gaps in health system

The recent revelation of wellness blogger Belle Gibson is a disappointment to her large following of cancer patients. However, it is a sign of a deeper failing in the health system such that patients are looking to online personalities for health information that they should be receiving from the health system. The health system is in need of a major overhaul to cater to the wellness needs of society. Patient engagement programs for illness like cancer may be non-existent or largely disconnected and unemotional. Health promotion efforts should have stories of real patients

These organizations are still challenged with ensuring the wellbeing of employees not only in the workplace but also out of the workplace. The reason for this is that they started to realize that holistic wellness is determined not only within the work environment but also the balance between work and life.

Public Health Insights I shared with Derryn Hinch on Sky News

A few days ago I was given the opportunity by Sky News to share my views on a very timely health issue of significant importance to the general public. Foxtel’s Derryn Hinch hosted the discussion on vaping and e-cigarettes, an emerging phenomenon in Australia on his show Hinch Live. I was on a panel with another doctor, and the owner of an e-cigs company, who all shared different views on the topic. I explained the risks of e-cigarettes and the need to have careful regulations but that didn’t seem to

The Secret of Career Happiness

I worked in the corporate world for several years at the largest drug company in the world, Pfizer, and really enjoyed my time at the top level. But it was not until I left that I discovered the secret to happiness at work. It is because after I left that I discovered secrets of personal growth that had not been ‘tainted’ by corporatized language and complicated jargon. In some cases, simple truths that were easily communicated to the average man on the street were far more resonant and convincing than
