I believe that the challenges that lie at the core of personal effectiveness are also the challenges that lie at the core of leadership effectiveness. When individuals and teams are willing to face these challenges together, the ripple effects within an organisation can be game-changing for everybody.
I founded Core Leadership in 2002, with a vision to develop leaders who were integrated in body, mind, emotions and spirit. I brought to this challenge nearly twenty years of experience in working closely with people on one or more of these dimensions. My experience as a Physical Education Teacher, Outdoor Educator, Hellerworker, and lifelong practitioner of yoga taught me that ‘the body never lies’ – a principle that is ‘core’ to my approach to leadership. As a manager in the Public Health Service, and later through running my own business entities, I learned to recognise and develop leadership capability in others.
My greatest strength is probably my ability to help people access their own wisdom, intuition, and innate confidence. I also have a knack for getting to the core of issues within almost any context, and ‘naming the elephant in the room’ in a constructive way. I thrive on seeing individuals, teams and organisations come alive, get real, and get on with making their unique contribution to the world.
