Enlightened Business Approach
My vision is of a business world where purpose, passion and people are aligned for sustainable profit, lasting legacy and individual fulfilment at work.
The new paradigm of business leadership means that answers no longer come from the past. While I bring a wealth of experience, I am first and foremost a catalyst for change and a facilitator in bringing about new solutions to new challenges. It is the skill in creating a safe environment that challenges thinking, stimulates curiosity around ‘what if’ and allows people to talk openly and freely that makes the difference.
My Values: SCORE
My values lie at the heart of my work and shape every interaction. They form my promise to you:
S: Service first
In other words, how can I help? Service is all about giving back and making a difference to others. And of course, it is also about making sure that you get the levels of service you expect – always agreed upon before we undertake any work together.
C: Connect deeply
Relationships are important to me – I am still in touch with clients I worked with more than 10 years ago. Connection is what happens when we move beyond the superficial to what really matters – what lies beneath the surface. That’s where the shift happens.
O: Open communication
It is impossible to build a strong, trusted relationship without open communication. This means that I point out what I see, I raise concerns when appropriate and I invite honest feedback.
R: Results focus
At the end of the day, you are running or leading a business and results are important. I take the time to understand the results you want to see and how we will measure progress. Together we agree the outcomes from any engagement, and regularly check in to ensure movement in the right direction and any changes where necessary.
E: Enquiry led
Rather than being an expert with a pre-determined set of answers or template solutions that have worked in the past, I ask the right questions at the right time to generate a different dialogue – leading to different ideas and solutions that are relevant right now.
For the last few years I’ve supported the world humanitarian and spiritual leader Amma’s charitable foundation with projects spanning healthcare, education, empowering women, green initiatives, hunger relief and housing in India, to global disaster relief and food kitchens in the US.
