Show up and be counted!

Don't just live for the weekends – enjoy what you do, feel enthusiastic about your job and really show up. Let Tim Robson inspire you to bring it every day – to really contribute at work, make a difference and feel good about yourself as a result. He will also show you how to instil that enthusiasm in others so you can be surrounded by a team who gives a damn and really makes things happen. Who wouldn't want to work in a place like that!? 

So whether feeling a little lack-lustre at work, or you’re a manager with a team you want to get the most out of, Showing Up will give you real, practical steps you can take to really ignite some passion and start to drive forward at full force. 

  • Practical advice on how to engage at work and encourage engagement in others
  • Addresses the dominant norms and practices that often get in the way of us really showing up and bringing our best selves to work
  • How to shift your mindset from thinking about work as ‘school with pay’, to really wanting to get stuck in
  • How to identify your strengths and be good at what you do
