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.”

When I went to the Denk Producties conference on Forward Thinking Leadership last year, I did a write up including the key insights from each of the speakers. At this years Purpose Driven Leadership conference with Simon Sinek headlining, I planned to do the same: share the key learnings from each of the speakers. But something happened when I spoke to Simon that changed everything.
When I first read Play Your Bigger Game I felt a hunger for more of this kind of conversation in my life. So I talked to others about it, then I took a Bold Action and spoke to Rick about my idea.
