So, it's that time of year again when we wrap up and reflect on what we have done this year. Reflection is such a critical part in successful development that I encourage everyone we work with to go through the process. I'm always sending 'nagging' type e-mails asking, "so, where are you at now?"
For me, I started the year being congratulated by a series of very influential and hugely successful people internationally. It's impossible to work in a vacuum and this recognition has meant a massive step forwards for me. Especially in little Ireland! It's a sad fact that we are never truly appreciated where we come from. We have beaten our own records on financial success for our Clients this year with an American client making an astronomical amount for an individual in just 48 hours after working with us. But with the Podcast launch, Purple Psychology, it has meant that we are now reaching people in 62 countries internationally. This has also meant that I needed to find a way to work with more employees and hence I created the 4 hour employee system this year. And I said, "no one will listen to the podcast." How wrong could I have been? http://purplepsychology.com/
As always, we have seen a huge mixture of clients this year. From 2 years old upwards. I have helped people to win sporting events, turn their businesses around, get promoted in work, learn to talk, read and write in some of my shortest timescales yet. It's been a year of massive research into empathy creation, speech paths and integration programmes to focus on aspects of Asperger's Syndrome and Dyspraxia/Dyscalculia. My students have expanded across the continents too.
I have also formalised the work I do with Homeschooling (www.homeschooling.ie) and made a separate project for this work. We now support students across the globe and have students in practically every county in Ireland being supported in their homes and in mainstream school. Every year the reach just seems to grow.
I know the high profile client list and the business/sport profiling work I do brings more interest from the media but for me the special moments are still in the videos I get in my inbox of students reading who have never read before, especially when it's only 6 months later and they can read the school play for Christmas. For me my work is still all about others being able to do what I couldn't do at their age or in a way so much easier than what I have had to put in to get where I am now.
Oh, I almost forgot. We also launched an App on the iTunes store this year, the 365Success Productivity App. http://purplepsychology.com/365success-app/
To think Personality Theory Research can have such profound results. I have been told again this week in Washington D.C. that I look at the world differently to everyone else. I still struggle to see what people mean. All I know is that the answers don't seem hard to me.
Merry Christmas 2015 & Happy New Year 2016,

Dr. Naoisé O’Reilly on Newstalk’s The Right Hook interviewed live in studio by Shane Coleman this evening renewing call for homework to be banned in schools.
One of the most amazing aspects of engaging with massive Multinationals and household name Companies in the last few years is there fear of personalizing business. They are always looking for a generic system. A system that can just be pumped in regardless of people. It doesn’t seem to matter if the people are their clients, their customers or their employees. They must all be able to go into a box.
I won’t lie this has been a massive stumbling block for two women who are very personal in nature and are always seeking the depth. We have a natural affinity to put ourselves in other peoples shoes and see the world from their perspective. Hence, we will always tailor every communication, negotiation, deal, brand, theme and system to match the people we are dealing with. This is completely alien to large Companies. Why can’t you just have something automated and impersonal for me to engage with? Because it doesn’t get results. That’s it - plain and simple. If you want our kind of successful results you are going to need to create a tailored system. The funny part is that this is not more work. Because once you realize what the system is and how to tweak it to match your specific needs you will close the deal, sell the product and be on an upward trajectory all round in record time. You will not waste 6 months trying to get someone over the line. You will not employ a person for years and not get the best out of them. They won’t leave you as soon as you have spent years training them. You won’t waste tens of millions of dollars on branding that doesn’t work. The list is endless. We never even write any response to someone without first profiling them!
For me, I always go back to why do these patterns of thinking exist? In a nutshell - school. It’s the ultimate one size fits all model in the World. From very young ages we start in a system where we are expected to fit in with everyone else’s ideas and ways of working. Although everyone agrees this doesn’t work it used to take generations to change. Not any more. A little like the business models, it also seems an excessive amount of work to make changes. When I know in fact it is a few very small tweaks and an openness to see people for people that make such huge differences.
Who will become personalized first business or education? We have personalized both with massive successes in both. Some success is purely measured by money so maybe these will be the ones to change more rapidly even though a person’s overall feeling of success matters so much more.
