Leadership is 90% good manners and common sense

Much work to be done and some of it can happen straight away - ask your company to audit and the fix gender pay gaps

Sexual harassment is rife, the funding gap between male and female entrepreneurs is huge & it is possible to close the gender gap.

Here's our wrap up of the research released for International Women's Day.

We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren't old enough, and we'l...l be more content when they are.

After that, we're frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage.We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our partner gets his or her act together when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice holiday, when we retire.

The truth is, there's no better time to be happy than right now. If not now, when?

Your life will always be filled with challenges.

It's best to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyway.

A quote comes from Alfred D. Souza. He said,

"For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."

This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.

So, treasure every moment that you have and treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time...and remember that time waits for no one.

So, stop waiting until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until you have kids, until your kids leave the house, until you start work, until you retire, until you get married, until you get divorced, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until you get a new car or home, until your car or home is paid off, until spring, until summer, until winter, until your song comes on, until you've had a drink.... there is no better time than right now to be happy.

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

Work like you don't need money,

Love like you've never been hurt,

And dance like no one's watching.

Any workplace that thinks 'fake humping' is acceptable behaviour is seriously misguided - leadership fail

Two weeks ago, production company December Media hired a workplace consultant, Fiona Bigelli, to investigate claims of sexual misconduct on the set of the top-rating TV show.

The producers of the Doctor Blake Mysteries clear the actor of claims he sexually harassed his co-workers, but admit the show's workplace culture is bawdy and crude and may have offended some cast and crew members.

Given the torrent of misogyny they both faced is it fanciful to believe there is enough willingness to change these perceptions? I live in hope.

Research shows that the more successful a man is, the more he is liked. Not for women though.

Be the master of your devices-not the servant

Millennials receive an average of 109 text messages per day. Since cell phone alerts create a chemical response in the brain, millennials have to be intentional about their phone usage at work to avoid killing their productivity.

So true
