Once rapport has been established, my two favourite parts of my job are one, surfacing the real challenges my clients face and two, when my clients have those "a-ha" moments.

Surfacing the real challenges is so important to my clients' future success. When our solutions are based on addressing the real challenges, the desired outcomes will be achieved. Otherwise, the client is focused on the symptoms.

We all get the logic of what we "should" do but logic doesn't compel us to action the "should". When we "feel" it, aka "the a-ha", then change really happens and we action our plans because we get it. I just love when clients get to that point because it's all downhill to success then. Okay, I'm not saying it's all easy going down the hill but if we stick with it, the momentum starts building and we achieve our desired outcomes.

I come from a family of entrepreneurs so I suppose it was only a matter of time! I love being able to simultaneously help several companies and leaders, across a variety of industries.

I tend to build up trust very quickly. I bring a range of expertise to understanding and developing performance and capability, ranging from clarity of strategy to individual leadership. I bring very strong abstract reasoning skills, which enables clients to re-frame challenges and solutions, increasing the likelihood of success in achieving their goals. Lastly (but not least), I bring a sense of curiosity and fun.

Design and implement a 21st century-focused Performance Management Process.

Regardless of function, 21st century jobs have become much more complex while Performance Management hasn't evolved. How do knowledge-based industries evaluate performance when much of it happens in people's heads?

Using the concept of Role Dimensions and a more nuanced evaluation rating system, I work with companies to design and implement a more intuitive Performance Management process. The kind where managers and employees alike say "oh yeah, that makes sense!"
