The Power of One

Are you ready to do BIG things in YOUR world?

A pioneering book that puts the ‘i’ back into your boarding world.

The boarding working world is not an easy place to be.

Unfortunately, not everyone is trained, insightful or objective enough to offer the best advice. But now you can move forward to be the best version of yourself in your personal accommodation or on your kindle! Living in boarding is like being in a goldfish bowl and when things happen, good; bad or personal, there is no getting away from it and it always seems much much bigger when you are alone thinking about it.

One thing can change everything – one new boarder, one new senior manager, one inspection, one new staff member or just one emotion. Emotions drives your day to day actions.

Boardingology integrates real life global boarding experience with the latest cutting edge skills in personal development.

Your success is based on one thing – YOU, how you act and react. From managing your lifestyle, career management so that you are not the only one left on the ‘escape committee’ or strategically managing the day to day dynamics that is affecting your happiness - there is something for everyone at any stage in your boarding journey.

Boardingology is packed with valuable tools, insights and stories that you can apply immediately to deliver real lasting benefits for you, your teams and your boarding communities.

So, it is time to make your duty time work for you. Your new personal boarding handbook can empower you to be successful in all dimensions of boarding life.

My favourite writing moments from the book...

One community

Boarding intelligence comes from the heart.

One leader

Are you on the ‘naughty step’ by your behaviour or lack of knowledge?

One challenge

Call the cleaning team as it smells like something may have died. Is this aroma a result of all the conversation about dreams that have died in this very staffroom?

One new boarding world

Two words that can define your career and personal success. How can that be?

A note from the author...

"Writing Boardingology for me has been an amazing adventure. It is the book that I wished existed years ago to deal with the challenges of boarding life. It is time to put the ‘i’ back into your boarding world so that you can achieve your definition of success.

I believe that every young person is entitled to have a fair start in life- and, when they don’t it is up to us to see what we can do to help. In true paying it forward style all royalties from these books go to children’s charities who support young people access boarding to give them a chance to build their tomorrow.

I hope you enjoy the only boarding trilogy written with you in mind. Let me know how your get on."
