This week we will be recapping on Global Adventurer and Master of Resilience Bear Grylls. Bear inspired Pendulum attendees in January by speaking about the four things that have shaped him and the lessons he has learnt along the way.
Through his keynote, he guided the audience on a journey to understand how to overcome challenges and adversity and to learn from failures. His stories of resilience, courage and never giving up inspired and empowered the Pendulum Delegates to get out and find their own adventures! Bear Grylls began his presentation by talking about the important topic of self doubt...
I've experienced many moments of self doubt in my life that when I look in that cold mirror, I see four things. These things have made a huge difference to me, these four words that have come to define so much of my journey, and these things have been painful at times but they've also forged me, quietly over time.
Failure is a doorway you have got to go through if...

If you want to be more successful, one of the most vital relationships you can develop is with an accountability partner.
Accountability partners hold us responsible for meeting deadlines, accomplishing goals and making progress. They are a powerful combination of cheerleader and coach who make it easier to achieve our goals – and have more fun along the way.
How Accountability Relationships Work
When you enter into a relationship with an accountability partner, you agree to hold each other’s feet to the fire. Talking on a regular basis is essential for maintaining momentum and making steady progress toward your respective goals.
Ideally, you should check in with your accountability partner every day with a five-minute call. During these brief conversations, you’ll each state your goals for the day, as well as update your partner about whether or not you kept the commitments you made the previous day. Your partner will take notes about what you commit to...
A note from our CEO Frankie Sheahan:
These are unprecedented times and the devastation and loss it has brought and will bring about for many families, homes and businesses has been and will be absolutely catastrophic and my heartfelt thoughts are with each and everyone.
It's a worry for us all to ensure we stay protected, resilient, and healthy both physically and mentally and abide by the rules set out by our Government.
But we also need to take a step back from this and look at turning this crisis into an opportunity for your life.
For me personally as a father, husband and entrepreneur, being adaptable is what’s required by me right now. I've been fortunate to hear some of the greatest visionaries on the planet speak at Pendulum Summit - from Sir Richard Branson, Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra, Randi Zuckerberg, Bear Grylls, Robin Sharma to Dr Joe Dispenza and have learned that it's not WHAT happens to you but how you PERCEIVE, DECIDE and ACT on it.
For me, to keep my family...
“Leading yourself and others is always both challenging and rewarding, but a leader’s true mettle is tested in dynamic and disruptive conditions. When uncertainty is high and the ground is shifting under your feet, an adaptive mindset is vital.” - Dr. Trish Gorman, Managing Director of the Goff Strategic Leadership Centre
Leading in Disruptive Times may sound like a special case of leadership, but to many of you it is ‘just another Tuesday.’ For industries ranging from medical devices to automobiles and from legal services to home security management, Dr. Gorman highlights that we have seen new entrants and new technologies, often from unexpected quarters disturbing the established order and posing unique and serious challenges for leaders.
For example: For players in the health diagnostics and monitoring business, the feature on Fitbit or Apple Watch providing feedback on sleep quality was an early warning. To be able to detect anomalies in heart...
Only 10 Places Remaining As Expert Facilitators Announced
What creates a thriving culture? Is it the leaders? The company mission statement? The organic muffins? To me, it is people that are the biggest asset to an organisation. They are the pivotal contributors to creating a compassionate and winning culture. Below, I have elaborated upon seven touch points that will ensure a thriving culture.
Value and Genuine Appreciation: People must feel valued and they must feel a genuine appreciation of both themselves intrinsically and their work. It’s not sufficient to laud them once a year with a strong performance review or a bonus; they must feel valued each and every day.
A Collective Vision: Individuals develop high levels of self-motivation when they feel that they are an integral part of a team realising a collective vision. They must truly believe in this vision and consider it to be larger than the mundane day-to-day issues that will inevitably arise.
Momentum: Individuals need forward momentum to satisfy their yearning for growth....
