ICF Master Certified Coach (MCC), Team Coach and Founder of the Effortless Leader Revolution
I cut my leadership 'teeth' in junior and senior operational leadership roles across different contenents in the travel industry and led multi-cultural, and sometimes virtual, teams in Europe, America and North Africa. This gave me first-hand experience of a multitude of business and leadership challenges. This was taken to a new level when I 'stepped up' and became the first head of operations for one of the largest travel companies in the European and North American markets.
I had a lot of successess but a lot of struggles too - I struggled with overwhelm, with my leadership confidence and I struggled to influence some of my 'alpha' colleagues. That's why I'm on such a mission today to make leadership easier and more enjoyable for everyone. I do that through my executive and team coaching work and with my Effortless Leader Revolution and my regular blog articles with practical tips on all things leadership!
