I have met many leaders who…
Hide behind the logic presented by the numbers, undermining the trust of their people in the process.
Fail to appreciate that personal and professional growth is a non-negotiable, and so consistently underwhelming teams, investors, and customers.
Delay important decisions to avoid challenging conversations and lose their teams’ respect.
Think their position as a leader can be delegated to a manager, choosing absence and distance as an avoidance mechanism.
Change must start at the top
As a leader you walk your talk for the culture you wish to create. You embody the organisational Values.
You can choose to hide from the power you hold and suffer the associated guilt. Or – you can decide to embrace the power you hold and do the work required to unleash it.
Expecting your teams to step into their potential before you have invested in yours is a nice idea, and an impossibility.
Thanks to your position you have infinitely more power to affect positive or negative change in the lives of your team, customers, community, and the world.
“Business leaders must find ways to infuse mundane business activities with deeper, soul-stirring ideals, such as honour, truth, love, justice and beauty. Humanise what people say, and you may well humanise what they do.”
With 10+ years’ experience in a variety of sectors ranging from US Tech to social enterprise to fundraising consultancy, I am equipped with a broad and deep knowledge of the challenges faced by leaders in high-potential, fast-growing companies, and the crucial questions to consider as new strategies and growth phases are embarked on.
A graduate of Smurfit Executive Business School’s Diploma in Corporate Governance, I also hold a BA in Modern Languages and a Post-graduate Diploma in International Business Development from The University of Manchester and DIT respectively.
I am a certified Story Coach, and hold an Advanced Practitioner Diploma in Coaching with Neuroscience.
Why I care deeply about this work
Having worked closely with leaders and leadership teams over the last 10 years,
I have observed the following common themes:
The hierarchical systems we move in do not support leaders to do their best work.
Leaders are rarely prepared for the emotional stress they must manage.
Top-class leaders are highly self-aware and have invested extensively in self-development.
Purpose-driven, values-based leaders thrive most, both personally and professionally.
There is an urgent need for Purpose-driven leadership in ALL industries.
