Kanye_West bad role model for equlaity and diversity

Could he be affecting the way his fans perceive and respond to equality & diversity issues?   Watch the Throne Tour  was a co-headlining concert tour by rappers Jay-Z and Kanye West Back in 2011, I was offered the chance to see Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne tour and whilst not being the biggest fan in the world, I’m British, so I do love a good freebie and certainly wouldn’t have heard the end of it from my friends if […]

    Do we have a competitive nature or is it forced upon us?

    Competitive businessmen racing

    We encounter competition in many different ways throughout our lives. I’ve spent a lot of time recently attending a range of competitive activities with my daughter. They’ve made me think about whether we naturally have a competitive side, or it’s just forced into us by our parents, as we grow up. As a child, I can’t really remember many of my sports events at school; although I do remember being in the cross-country team at 14 years of age. Even though […]

      Unconscious bias head

      Are your unconscious biases being a help or a hindrance? There’s so much about myself that I don’t know. I realise my brain’s more complex, powerful and capable than any computer and I’m pretty sure it’s processing much, much, more than it lets on – It’s strictly need to know. This itself is good to be aware of. My mind is working on two levels of awareness: The conscious and unconscious mind Level 1: Conscious Awareness: Things I know […]

        Frustrated business man

        How can body language affect your feelings and the feelings of others? Much has been written on the need to take care of how we present ourselves through our body language, that I worry we have come to a point where we dismiss it, thinking yes, I know all that. Arms crossed against our body means this, or hunched shoulders means that. That said, I think it is worth reminding ourselves of the real power […]

          Goal (teabags)tweaked

          Confused about the offside rule in football? Allow me to explain the offside rule through a herbal tea making analogy. I promise that all will become clear via simple step by step instructions. OK, imagine this scenario. It’s Monday morning and I’m in the office kitchen waiting for the kettle to boil, whilst standing behind my colleague, Mary. I’m desperate for a hot brew before I go to my desk and start work, but I can see that that there’s only […]

            The Body Language Of The England Team

            Kasmin Cooney

            England’s body language during the 2014 World Cup The body language of the England team as they lost the game against Uruguay, pretty much mirrored their demeanour as they got off the coach before the start of the game. We had so much hope for them. At the Righttrack office we were similar to many business office teams across the country, in organising a sweepstake. We merrily and casually taunted each other on who had […]

              Big Issue: A Hand Up, Not A Hand Out

              Big Issue Volunteer Tops

              The Big Issue is a magazine sold by homeless and long-term unemployed people   I may be biased, however, I’d put money on a great deal of people agreeing with me when I say, Righttrack’s Managing Director, Kasmin Cooney (OBE!) is a generous, forward-thinking, inspirational lady. In her work-life, she channels these attributes through learning and development; turning individuals into stars whilst helping organisations achieve ambitious business objectives. It was no surprise therefore when she […]
