My ‘lightbulb moment’ was more of a gradual realisation over 25 years working in the field of HR and consultancy where i saw the powerful impact that culture had in the workplace. I began to understand that a lot of the 'fire-fighting' that took place in the walls of the HR office, pointed to a deeper, more integral problem; one of culture.
I saw how a good culture resulted in a workforce who were intrinsically motivated, enthusiastic about the the organisation and enjoyed coming to work. which in turn, strengthened the organisation and placed it in a position to achieve its vision. Win-Win!
Over the last 4 years, I have developed, a model that enables an organisation to 'live' its values, and a leadership development model that develops key culture shaping qualities in leadership.
My Core Values are CLEAR :
Creativity : I think 'outside-the-box' using my initiative, and when faced with a problem or challenge, I won't give up thinking of ways round it.
Learning: I take a 'can-do' approach, thriving in situations where solutions are needed, constantly learning.
Excellence : I bring all my skills, knowledge, creativity, and intuition to the table; you always get the best of me.
Authenticity : I'm honest in my communication, and a person of my word.
Respect : I take a non-judgemental approach, believing that people are equal in their uniqueness and value.
In my spare time, I play the cello in orchestral, folk and other informal settings and I love to run.
