At the heart of leadership that creates effective change is courage and compassion. Leadership is a vital role in any team, and navigating your way through its responsibilities can be muddy without a map.
Leadership is a vital role we all take on at some capacity. Whether leading an executive team, a fresh and exciting start up, or a family, navigating your way through leadership responsibilities can be muddy without a map.
Everybody needs a somebody who supports their growth. You support the growth of your team. I can support you. Learn to lean into your big heart and gain face to face feedback on your leadership style as you experiment with new ways to help your team thrive.
“You can’t get to courage without rumbling with vulnerability” – Brene Brown
A word of warning. This work is not for the faint hearted. Neither is leadership, or life for that matter. There will be uncertainty, tough conversations and at times, moments of doubt. Courageous and compassionate leadership requires you to sit in the mud with love and acceptance, both for yourself and your team. To stare you fears in the face, and communicate them to others with honesty. To create a safe space for your team to do the same. It can feel sticky and uncomfortable, and a lot like hard work. But as you acquire the skills that foster curiosity, creativity and compassion in yourself and others, you will learn to move through and out of the mud with confidence and clarity.
Move some mud and make some magic!
How does this work?
One To One Coaching
You bring your big ideas, pain points, wins, struggles, hopes and dreams to the table.
I bring my ongoing learning from the fields of positive psychology, social neuroscience and leadership coaching, along with an open mind and heart.
I ask the questions no-one else will ask you, and you bring whole-hearted answers that lead to insight. That insight leads to your best thinking and feeling, which fosters creativity and solution seeking. You are the expert. You are the magic. I am your guide by the side.
