More than 30 years of experience and a successful track record in leading and elevating business leaders and teams across the globe.
Following a shattering accident, 8 years ago, with devastating injuries, I have defied all expectations to beat the odds. ( See my Profile) My recovery has been an inspirational journey of resilience and the power of leveraging personal strengths. Although Im still a work in progress, I’m not just surviving, I am thriving.
We all face challenges but being crushed is not an option. We need to develop the strengths to thrive – especially in today’s business. We need to adapt swiftly. My mission is not to show people my superpowers, but to show them theirs.
My focus is to enable others to flourish. Where you, your team or your organisation feel stuck, uncertain which direction to take, or want to elevate talent and take careers to their next level, I help determine that path. I help you recognise where you are uniquely powerful and vulnerable and how to leverage strengths to develop resilient , authentic leaders and teams who thrive.
