When a goal is achieved in your team or organisation, what happens next?
It’s natural to want to recognise and celebrate achievements. Acknowledging a job well done is a vital part of the process of development.
But there’s a risk: complacency.
If we focus too much on what’s done, we often forget about what’s still to do. We look back, rather than forward to the next job, and the next goal.
If I were to ask you how you are, what would you say?
I suspect there is a strong possibility your answer would include the word ‘busy’. Most of us feel busy and we see being busy as a positive thing. If you’re busy, that must mean you’re productive, useful and high-achieving. If you’re not busy, what are you doing with your time?

We were founded in 2005 by leadership development professional, Susan Carroll.
She chose a name designed to define our purpose. Scala is the Italian word for ladder or stairway: the means to get to another place. Advance implies action taken and progress achieved.
Our clients come from across the corporate world, technology, design and the public and third sectors. Many are long-established large organisations, among the top 10 in their industries. Many others are growing and successful SMEs and ambitious start-ups. What they have in common is their readiness to innovate, change and grow.
We have expertise in leadership development, leading change, creative business strategy, human behaviour and transformational coaching. We share the ability to lead, influence and inspire.
