I absolutely love turning up to work and being all of who I am, just the same as I do when I turn up to my friend’s place, or turn up as a mum, or whatever. And finally, I now work with an organisation where who I am and what I bring is the most important thing in what I do. In fact, I am the General Manager, so not only is it the most important thing for me, it sets the tone for the team that I manage. In a sense, my role focuses on Change Leadership, because we work in the space of change.
My role focuses on creating the glue that engages people, as unique individuals and as a team, so I am essentially a glue maker.
And the third thing that I do, is about working with people’s values and really understanding what it is that inspires them. I support them to develop their own natural leadership capacity as I build my own in alignment with that. And interestingly, that is actually what we do in the Elevate Business service stream.
We actually do Change Leadership, which is the architecture around an intentional change process, we build cultures of engagement where people wake up and can’t wait to get to work and do what they love, just like me. And we really pay attention to finding that unique flow for each individual within a values-based leadership model.
So, it’s perfect! I get to BE it and foster it in the business that I lead, and then our consulting team go out and deliver it in a way that is congruent with the business they consult with.
My job, as General Manager of The Elevation Company is to make sure that what we do and be and model within our own business, is a wonderful example of what we consult with other businesses to do, be and create in theirs. In fact, my test of success is to make sure that we are the best possible example of what we teach when we consult with other businesses.
