“Becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming yourself. It is precisely the simple, and it is also that difficult”. Warren Bennis
If I’d have read that quote 10 years ago I’d have not understood it in exactly the same way I do today. In part, because of my own growth, and also I think our perspective on Leadership is moving through another iteration.
We lead others through the very ‘self’ that we are. Becoming who we are meant to be means taking a look at that ‘self’ from inside. Great leadership comes from the inside. It’s driven by what we care about, courage and commitment, It’s driven by a sense of connectedness to the whole, to purpose and the ability to declare and co-create a new future. Great leaders are able to work effectively with others, because they’ve made the personal investment to get their own internal landscape sorted. Great leaders aren’t only the ones leading teams of people, leading in organisations. Great leaders are also those who are taking active responsibility for their own lives, stepping out with more bravery than ever before to finally choose to be who they are meant to be. And after all, who do you really want to lead your life? You, or someone else?
Developing our leadership asks how we can bring the best self that we can be onto the field. How can our best self be put to good use in this life that we live?
I am an Executive Leadership Coach and I work with people who are looking to develop themselves to ultimately be more resilient, less stressed, happier and fulfilled. People who are looking to build better relationships with others and to improve engagement and co-ordination. I work often with people who are sponsored by their company, and equally with people who choose to self-fund.
If you choose to work with me, we will make a plan that will show you how you can learn to navigate whatever the world throws at you, in your time, on your terms. I can help you to build resilience for adversity, show you how to unhook yourself from unhelpful patterns and create strategies to achieve your most valued goals.
