You want to impact your world and create lasting change
You’ve come to the right place.
I believe everyone is a leader, and there are many ways to lead. So let’s go on a journey to discover or develop your brand of leadership ….
WHAT YOU BELIEVE ABOUT LEADERSHIP
The top down, hierarchical, one directional model of leadership is wholly unequipped to deal with our volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous (VUCA) world. With so much information and opportunity available to us, we need a way to sense and respond in a creative, collaborative way. One person cannot have the answer.
Today, leadership is a multidimensional way to create something bigger than ourselves. It’s a way to make sense of the world so that we can respond/act in a creative, agile way.
Today’s leadership includes a range of styles and approaches, so it’s only logical then that everyone is a leader. There are many ways to lead, and many dimensions to lead from. What’s your way to lead?
APPROACH YOU WANT
You want to combine creativity and focus so that you can harness the benefits of agility.
BE PURPOSE DRIVEN
There is so much noise about us needing to find our purpose to be happy and successful. But what does this even mean and how do we find it? The good news is that you can find purpose without having to have the answer to the life, the universe, and everything. It doesn’t need to be the big significant “this is what I want to do with my life” thing. Unless that’s what you want. Fundamentally, it’s about the impact that you want to have in YOUR world, not the whole world. So we connect purpose to action.
STRUCTURE AND FLEXIBILITY, TOGETHER
You want a pragmatic and practical approach with frameworks and playbooks to guide you. You don’t want to get tied down into rigid processes and plans. You want to follow the 80/20 rule adjusted for creating impact. You know you need 80% flexibility so that you have space to dream big, use your imagination, get creative. Then you only need 20% structure to keep you focused on the impact you want to have and the change you want to make.
DESIGN, ACT, LEARN
Experiential learning is at the heart of progress in real life so you want that when you develop yourself. But what is that? Most simply: learning by doing. How will you know if something will work if you don’t try it out? You don’t want to just plod through a step by step plan, you are looking for the transformative actions that will help you make leaps to where you want to go.
Who are you?
You are a leader, or you think you can be.
You’re ready to play a bigger game at work, at home, or for a cause you care about.
You are ready to act on your ideas or figure out what what you want to do next.
“Amber helped me look at challenges from a new perspectives which helped me re-frame some mental patterns that were limiting me.
This made my challenges less heavy and gave me new ways to approach and overcome them. She did this in a very open, constructive, non-judgemental, and solutions orientated way. Working with Amber helped me prioritise myself amongst all my other priorities. And she gave me some tools to use in the future, so I can continue to navigate life’s challenges more easily.”Megan Giannini, Head of Integrated Talent Management, Philips

Latest on the Blog
Around this time of year, from when the first stirrings of spring appear, I get an increase in requests for coaching.
I used to expect this in January – when people are looking to start their year strong, may have made some resolutions etc.
Yet this makes sense. After the holidays we are often tired (and happy tired I hope). And then the year starts with a bang. We’ve got to wrap up the previous year AND dive straight into making this year happen – with some varying quantity of admin and reporting thrown in.
So this week I wanted to do something a little bit different with my blog and vlogging posts. I’m sitting in my garden, in a house that we’ve just sold. I’m going to be moving in a few weeks, and I just wanted to share an experience I’m having right now that I think many of you might be having at some point too, is that really mixed emotion, mixed feeling you’re having about what’s happening in your life.read more
You may have made some New Years resolutions, or set some intentions for the year. But you’re stuck and don’t know where to start. Are you procrastinating?read more
