Let’s be honest…
No matter how good we are at what we do, no matter how successful we’ve been in our career or how many qualifications we have – to move into leadership and those early years as a leader can be a very lonely and challenging place! Even if you’ve been promoted from within the same company; you know the people, you were so good at what you did…after all, that’s what got you to where you are today, somehow, being a leader is a whole new ball game!
Suddenly, the rules of the game have changed, the team dynamics are different and what is expected of us from above and below is not always something we feel we have the skills, experience or confidence to handle. We are expected to lead and support others and yet we don’t feel we have anyone to turn to for our own support and help when we need it most.
The journey to becoming a great leader can be an exciting adventure of a lifetime, but those early years can also be the most challenging, and without the right support leadership can feel exhausting, overwhelming and life can easily start to feel out of balance.
I believe every leader has the potential to become a great leader and live a great life in the process – my passion is to give leaders the support and practical tools they need to make it happen.
