At last a viable solution to your Company's pain and suffering !

A Genuine Solution for Tough Times

Many of you will have experienced a time in your life when you have really and truly set your mind to achieving something — it may be:

  • the purchase of a particular new item that you have always wanted;
  • Or winning the heart of that boy/girl that you so admired;
  • Or running a marathon/competing in a significant sporting event that you trained and trained for;
  • Or it may be a million and one OTHER things !

What we can say with total surety is that no matter what is was, if your mind set had not been right, then the chance of you successfully achieving whatever it was would have been minimal at best !

The above is just 'common sense' ! We all know that focusing on a problem/challenge/goal/desire/ etc is the only way that we are likely to succeed and yet when it comes to business, all too often we find it too difficult to lift our heads out of the day-to-day......the mundane......our 'ritual'; to take a good hard look at what it is that we want to achieve and how we might go about achieving it !

Another important aspect of success is building a support team. It doesn't matter if you are saving for a car (that team might be the bank/parents/partner/mechanic/etc) or running a marathon (might be a trainer/running partner/dietician/physio/etc) — you always need a SUPPORT TEAM ! And what you often find is that it is usually one or all of them that have a mass of great ideas and advice that will assist you in your quest........YOU rarely have all of the answers !

'Common sense' ? Of course it is ! But, in business we again tend to forget about the network of stakeholders (our Support Team) that surround us and that are impacted by our decisions, our successes or our failures. It is these people, that you should be talking to and gathering ideas from ! After all, more often than not, they are the ones that are in the know or who have a genuine opinion on what is needed !

Whilst the above has probably not sparked the 'light bulb' in your head — it has hopefully drawn your focus back to basics.........and keeping things simple is often the difference between success and the "F-word" ! The reason for this is again, "simple" ! The more simple you can make it, the easier it is to focus on what it is that you are trying to achieve.

So, why all of the info above when this article started out talking about "genuine solutions in tough times" ?

"Simple": The team at distil has been fortunate enough to work with the highly-acclaimed FutureSearch program which has been used by businesses, communities and clusters around the world to achieve the future they envisioned and address some very complex issues through processes, simplicity and above all through their stakeholders !

If your Club or Business is struggling for whatever reason OR if you would like to be even more successful at what you do; then FutureSearch by distil might be exactly what you need to take you to that next level !

Roger Cowan (well-known from his successes at Panthers and beyond) has teamed up with Joe Bowers to promote and deliver this amazing program.

FutureSearch by distil is a highly flexible system that can be adapted to focus the energy of all of your key stakeholders in and around your business to achieve a common goal or sets of goals ! It is powerful because it is a collaborative program that assists groups of all types to rapidly transform their capability for effective action — usually in a manner far beyond anything that most leaders have previously experienced.

Due to its flexibility, FutureSearch by distil can be applied to any issue of importance such as (but certainly not limited to):

  • Team Building
  • Marketing
  • Organisational Change Management
  • Revenue Growth
  • Membership Growth
  • Cultural Change

Welcome to the fold Mr West !

White Now have been sniffing around for another GREAT person to join the team and who appeared out of nowhere but Dave West. Dave is the wind we need behind our already tall sails so that we can continue to forge ahead and bring YOU great things. Our new Ideas and Strategy Monster was asked a few questions by the Wizard;

Dave, why do you think that White Now loves having you as a team member ?
I pay them to be nice to me and it's great to have someone on the team who makes everyone else look good.

What is the best thing about being part of the White Now team ?
Like minds... probably not really... but like aspirations ... we compliment each other's skills and knowledge ... unless we are abusing them that is.

If you were given an open plane ticket for anywhere in the world, where would you go and why ?
I do hate travelling in open planes unless I am stunt flying but I would love to go to Antarctica (not in an open plane though -way too cold) as I really love icebergs and the animal life. Also someone once said at my school formal that I look like a penguin and I wasn't wearing black tie - perhaps I could blend in.

What do you love doing in the time that you're not at work ?
Laughing with/at the family, windsurfing and sailing competitively.

Do you have a mentor and if so, what do you see in that person that makes them your mentor ?
I have never had a true mentor but have absorbed a lot through osmosis working with some great people. If I had a mentor I would think they would be someone who would be inspirational, knowledgeable and experienced in the things I'm not. Someone who was creatively successful, willing to take a calculated risk and someone who was always willing to learn, apply and share their learnings.

If you could not have your current job, what other job would you love to have ?
Are you suggesting I leave already ? Perhaps I can pay a bit more... Maybe an actor, an astronaut or a Wiggle... or a combination of these.

Dave can be contacted on 02 9807 1806 or via david@whitenow.com.au


Here's how dozens of your colleagues discovered the secret to ensuring that they get an interview for their dream job !

Dozens of students from the Aristocrat/Leagues Clubs Australia (LCA) Gaming Management Development Course (GMDC) were tortured by Toby and Jenny via their 'on stage' antics whilst delivering the high powered "Designing an Effective Resume" program developed by White Now. After Toby and Jenny 'left the building', they received so many wonderful emails from the students ... including these comments;

"Thank you and keep doing what you do. IT'S POWERFUL"
"The presentation was great and has driven me to update my resume this weekend"
"Thank you ... that was one of the most interesting and beneficial presentations held in the GMDC"

The 10th year of the GMDC course ended in June with the Graduation of students and the announcement of the 2009 Prize Winners. Click here to see who won the all expenses paid trip to Las Vegas and the trips to Melbourne along with a photo of the happy winners. A HUGE congratulations to all the students for an amazing effort. Bring on the 11th year of the course commencing 20th August !
