My Guiding Beliefs
Thriving leaders are the nucleus of thriving organisations.
Business transformation is only possible when leaders find the courage for personal transformation.
We must take care of ourselves and our people in order to take care of customers and communities.
Your customers will never love your company unless your people love it first.
We must urgently re-design workplaces to unlock human potential.
Everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive and to experience work as productive play.
At the core of our identity we are all beautiful, powerful and unique beings.
“We desperately need more leaders who are committed to courageous wholehearted leadership and who are self-aware enough to lead from their hearts, rather from unevolved leaders who lead from hurt and fear.”Brene Brown
I was born in 1975 in Sydney, Australia. Throughout my formative years, my father suffered terribly from workplace-related stress. His suffering had a profound impact on me and our family. It is the ‘why’ behind my deep commitment to the creation of workplaces where people and performance thrive.
With the benefit of hindsight, I can now see that for the first decade of my 20 year corporate career I was propelled by a force that was beyond my control – a need to strive, to achieve and to constantly prove myself.
As a child I was a high achiever. As a straight-A student, I was dux of my school and was later awarded a university scholarship.
In the world of business I was recognised as ‘top talent’, winning awards and being promoted. However, deep down I often felt like I was on an out-of-control roller-coaster ride. As the years progressed, the ride felt like it was getting faster and faster. I wanted to get off… but I did not know how.
At a certain moment in my early 30’s it became clear to me that this way of being was not sustainable, and was incompatible with thriving. I began to see clearly that my way of being was directly linked to my childhood experiences.
Participating in a leadership retreat was a pivotal experience for me. At the retreat I realised how many other high-performing leaders were secretly struggling with a dark shadow. This shadow was the feeling that they were not enough. That they were not worthy.
I understood for the first time that I was not alone.
Over the last 10 years I have been learning, testing and sharing mindful, sustainable ways of being and working. I have learnt to de-couple my sense of self-worth from my professional status and achievements. I have reprogrammed many of my limiting beliefs and I have learnt to hold things more lightly, whist maintaining my passion to do great work and to make a big difference. I have reconnected with my sense of humour and rediscovered my love of play. I am also proud to say that I prioritise self-care without guilt or apology.
“Happiness and well-being are not magical traits that some are blessed with and others are not – they’re a way of living and working that we can nurture and grow.“Arianna Huffington
