I work with all levels of executive talent who wish to transition to that next level.
These executives are motivated and know what they want but lack the habits, discipline, and leadership attributes required to get them to that next level.
They face daily challenges from multiple stakeholders while managing teams.
These executives need coaching to help with greater insight and impact.
Secrets I’ve learned from >40 years’ thriving through all levels of professional life
We all face challenges in our private and professional lives. Finding ways to overcome or mitigate those challenges enables us to continue moving forward. By doing this, we lessen the chance of losing focus on the things that truly matter.
I’ve encountered numerous setbacks and disappointment, only to bounce back even stronger and achieve successive new highs each time.
At age 25, newly married and during construction of my first home, suddenly laid off, living from savings and Union handouts.
The ten years that followed consisted of highs and lows, traveling, working, and growing in exotic and remote locations, covering the width and breadth of Australia and New Zealand. From island resorts to iron ore smelters, from icy winters to sweltering summers. From the majestic countryside to barren plains. From starting my first business to being investigated for fraud and embezzlement.
Fast forward 15 more years and those swings continued. As did my learning and growth, with each stumble providing opportunities to pause and reflect, seeking ways to regroup and capitalize, before resuming that upward trajectory.
Turning 50, saw plenty to celebrate – a successful career, living the life of an expat, financially secure, but then came the lows and they were extreme. Aggressive cancer, divorce, and bankruptcy to name just three. The mental and physical challenges were immense.
However, I not only survived but have thrived. Living and working across the world, even becoming a global head of Learning. Along the way I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing enormously diverse cultures with wonderfully gifted people.
My journey in helping others has become my obsession. It’s what ignites the flame that gets me leaping out of bed each morning. There are few rewards greater than being able to utilize my learned skills and support executives who are stuck and unfortunately cannot find clarity. At the same they wish to overcome their career challenges and feel better defined. I feel blessed to work with each of them and cherish the moments as we co-create their future together.
