Leadership is an energy, it isn’t simply a job title.
We all have the power to lead ourselves and others, and magic happens when we learn how to harness it.
When I turned 30 in 2010, I could feel something wasn’t right, but I thought work was the issue. I decided to see a Coach. The Coach asked me one question that ultimately changed everything: “When was the last time you felt joyful?”. I answered telling her I was happy, but after the session something inside me started to shift and my life became unbearable.
Truth? I hadn’t felt joy since childhood.
I wasn’t consciously aware of what I needed to do next, beyond going back to that Coach. That was the moment I started to take the lead in my life. What has unfolded since has been my total reinvention; I left the life I had created; an unhealthy marriage, house, all of it, and started over. I created the space to thrive and to move through life in a way that feels in alignment with values.
I then applied my learnings within my professional roles, leading People, Talent and Culture for companies like Shazam, Onfido and bp Launchpad.
