I’m on a mission to enable leaders and individuals to ‘join the dots’ of their day to day tasks to a big picture purpose.
Also to help people recognise the un-tapped, under-developed talents within
themselves and their teams that can be the difference between mediocre cultures, products, careers and companies and one that surpasses
their wildest imagination.
After working as an IT Recruiter and HR Consultant in the technology industry for nearly 15 years, I have seen the familiar challenge of how to grow a career and keep performing in high paced teams while delivering over long periods of demanding time.
The answer is special care and attention to your ‘personal why’. It is ensuring you lead yourself and that your personal and professional development is top priority in your career planning and actions. This is the fuel, the energy, the juice that provides the high engagement that leaders look for in individuals for sustained performance and for a successful career.
Get to know yourself and create an authentic connection with your purpose by listening to what you really want to achieve in your career. Align your ‘personal why’ with the organisation objectives and magic happens. Then simply balance the output with input. Allow time and space for delivery as well as your ‘development’ for ultimate performance, longevity and earning potential.
Love your work!
