🤔 Who are you?
This is a question I frequently pose to the leaders and teams I collaborate with. It serves as a powerful tool for enhancing personal awareness and empathy within teams. Continuously asking this question encourages profound self-reflection.
🤔 Who am I?
For those who have recently connected with me and may not be familiar with my background, here's a glimpse into who I am:
I'm fortunate to be deeply involved in my passions every day. Over the past few years, I've deliberately shifted my career trajectory, transitioning from 30 years in the Tech & Telco industry, where I held various commercial leadership roles, to become an independent leadership coach and consultant.
My work now involves:
🎯 Cultivating leadership skills that inspire and motivate teams.
🎯 Establishing routines that promote high performance and well-being.
🎯 Elevating awareness of thinking and behavioural preferences.
🎯 Identifying energy levels, stress responses, and strategies for thriving.
🎯 Enhancing engagement and productivity within teams.
🎯 Nurturing personal brands and communication skills to maximise impact.
🎯 Breaking down barriers and formulating strategies for progress.
😃 I'm genuinely passionate about delving into these topics and helping individuals and teams unlock their true potential.
In parallel, I find immense fulfilment in my other passions: coaching teenagers in sports at my local rugby club and mentoring students from nearby schools. These activities enable me to empower the young talents of tomorrow to:
🎯 Build confidence and self-belief.
🎯 Embrace physical activities for their well-being.
🎯 Develop skills that enhance their life and career choices.
🎯 Seek guidance when needed from mentors or role models.
Of course, it's not always smooth sailing.
There are days when I grapple with self-doubt, wondering:
😬 What is the true impact of my programs?
😬 Where will my next clients come from?
😬 Am I good enough?
😬 Will I earn enough?
😬 Is this sustainable?
During such moments, I remind myself that these feelings are normal. It's all part of the journey.
🧠 Anyone who runs their own business experiences similar challenges.
🧠 The path can be tough, but I'm incredibly fortunate to do what I'm passionate about.
🧠 I've put in relentless effort to get here, and I excel at what I do.
🧠 Knowing that I positively impact so many people fuels my energy to keep going.
🧠 Think about all those lives I can transform!
