Lunch and Learn with Lindsay – Issue 23: X is for X marks for the spot

The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of activity here at Your Excellency HQ with online training deliveries galore and a very exciting press announcement.  If you missed our exciting news you can read it here.

I can honestly say Lily Shippen’s culture and ethos perfectly aligns with our own and we are delighted to be working with them.

So, today I’m sharing a training video detailing how you can pull together your own “hierarchy of criteria”. 

This is a simple yet hugely beneficial exercise to help you identify what’s important to you.  Based on a chapter of my book  “X is for X marks the spot”, it’s a perfect technique to help you when you’re faced with choices and making decisions.

With regards
