When we support others to shine we bring out the best in ourselves
A sign I love reads “home is where my dog is” and for me that is the United Kingdom in Sheffield, where I live with my husband Barry and Rocky our much loved West Highland Terrier. My play ground is the planet and my playmates a group of smart, crazy passionate people who believe that we can make a significant difference to the world of work this lifetime and beyond. Our vision is a world of enlightened leaders and enlightened organisations.
Working in the corporate world of Glaxo Pharmaceuticals Sales leadership and Marketing roles gave me first hand experience of the double edge sword of success and the stress, the pain of working with competing agendas, the waste of time of politics, the games, the bureaucracy. All of this made me reflect on how will the work experience be really different when the next generation come along? Which lead me to the question – How can I make a significant difference to the world of work?
For the last 16 years I have been on a wonderful adventure with The Zone working in 20 different countries doing the work I love with people I love – our team and clients, collaborating across many different industries. Together we awake and accelerate the evolution of the human spirit. When we are in the zone our hearts open, spirit comes alive and we create the space for others to shine.
We bring to our clients a collaborative technology which operates from the foundation of whole person and personal responsibility. This accelerates teams into high performance where their attention and energy is directed towards an inspiring vision and purpose. This is where the magic happens. Conflict morphs into creative tension, collective intelligence is unleashed and true collaboration enables continuous innovation.
One of my favourite things to be involved with is our Train the Trainer programme which we tailor for our clients. We take the ‘raising stars’ of an organisation on a journey. We share our way of being and doing so that the transformation is owned, embedded and becomes sustainable within their organisation. This experience is rich in personal and professional learnings that live on beyond the workplace and positively impact their extended community, starting with their family. We have fun. People from across the business brought together in service to a bigger goal and purpose, and doing it with passion and personal responsibility, are powerful role models that can change the world. This makes me smile.
