What people want most is often just on the other side of change. But many people find creating and navigating change hard. Often, people don't have an effective process or the right tools to create and navigate change successfully. Change can bring with it significant challenges and obstacles that can feel like a mountain to climb. It can also trigger feelings like discomfort, uncertainty, fear, and self-doubt.
All too often, it is the human side of change that keeps people stuck. But it doesn't have to be this way.
My mission is to help you create and navigate change easier, faster, and for it to feel less of a struggle so that you achieve what matters most to you. That is why I created my Change in Action programme. It includes practical strategies and tools from my 34 years experience in personal, professional, and organisational change, to help you navigate both the logistical and human side of change successfully.
Over the last 20 years, I have created many changes in my personal and professional life, so I can relate to exactly what it really takes to create lasting change successfully at a personal level.
I had a great 14 year career in the corporate world but in 2000 I decided that living and working by the conventional definition of success didn’t feel that fulfilling or meaningful to me anymore. So I decided to create my own definition of success, design the next chapter of my life and work around that, and to create and navigate the changes necessary to turn it into reality.
In 2001 I left the corporate world to run my own business (a long held dream). I have continued to take a design approach to all areas of my life and work for the last 20 years. I have made significant changes numerous times. For example, I left the UK to live in Ireland for seven years. I then moved to Canada in 2013 and eventually became a Canadian Citizen. There have been many other personal and professional changes over the years too.
I now live on an island near Vancouver on the West Coast of Canada. Island life allows me to live and work on my own terms, by my own definition of success.
