I Can help you discover Your Direction
(Even when you have no idea what you want to do next.)
I started this business 8 years ago after more than a decade developing leaders and helping organisations change. During that time I saw too many smart people with so much to offer suffering in work that no longer fit.I could see the many options and different directions they could choose if they just knew how
That’s what I do Now.
I work one to one with clients ‘To Discover and Create Work That’s a Great Fit’ for you and your life now
It takes different forms
Sometimes it’s working out what needs to happen in your current work for it to be more enjoyable or more stimulating,
Other times it working out what your next move might be and what you’ll need to get there whether thats a new role a new career or a whole new direction.
Employed, self employed, or a business owner I can help you understand what’s not working for you, discover what’s possible and demystify the way you get there.
At the start it can seem unsurmountable or out of reach and yet it is possible if you know how to approach it right
My story how I got from there to here
I’ve always been someone who values choice
I’ve travelled a lot (from my native New Zealand, to London, and anywhere in between!). I have had lots of different careers and ended up at senior levels in corporate HR (Organisation Development).
By the time my HR career was taking off I was earning a great salary and doing very nicely… on the outside. On the inside, the reality was that I was living that life where those around you think you should be grateful to have any job, and just think of the money…
No one got how utterly miserable I was. What got to me was the lack of choice. I was wasting my life, it was ticking away and there was no meaning to this work. There really wasn’t the opportunity to grow in the way I wanted too.
My Day Today
Today I love my work – It provides me with the structure, freedom and income to live well.I have time to refuel and enjoy my work/life. Seeing the difference in people who do the work it takes, now enjoying their work is amazing.
I can’t wait to see what we discover for you
