We desperately need more leaders who are committed to courageous, wholehearted leadership and who are self-aware enough to lead from their hearts, rather than unevolved leaders who lead from hurt and fear.
My motto is “to develop leaders with Courage, Commitment and Heart”. Courage to make a difference, Commitment is all that one takes on and the ability to lead from their Heart. It is my belief that I was meant to empower others; to support others to see their own power and strength. My hope is always that each person I encounter and client I support feels better about themselves and have an added sense of self-efficacy and self-confidence.
