Oxford Dictionary defines leadership as “The action of leading a group of people or an organization.” This is quite simple to understand, but hard to implement. The main reason is the person who has to execute necessary actions, or the leader. We all have in mind what is a leader and how he or she must act to lead the company to success.

2.Tell me about yourself.

I am unapologetically in love with my life and who I am evolving into as a leading lady! Believe it or not, I never aimed to become an entrepreneurial leadership coach. As a servant leader, I spent many years behind the scenes studying great leaders. I have served several great leaders and many cruel leaders. In my younger years I never viewed myself as a leader. If anyone desired me to take on the leading role, I would defer to someone else. Naturally, I am a motivator and what is prevalent in the workplace are unmotivated workers. A leader has to provide motivation, empowerment and inspiration to their followers on a consistent basis. As a leadership development coach, I enter an organization and listen to all parties and develop a strategy that will create a culture that is infused with excellence, teamwork and productivity. The opportunity to make a difference has and always will be my guiding force.

In the words of Emily Dickinson, “we dwell in possibility.” The marketplace is always in need of brilliant thought leaders and we specialize in helping others go from untapped to uncapped leaders.

5. If you had a chance what would you do in differently?

In the early phases of my journey, I would have invested in a personal business coach instead of trying to figure it out on my own. In this phase of leadership development I remain connected to coaches, professional training, masterminds etc…

  • The best: Don’t ever allow money to dictate what you can or cannot do! You are not only in business, YOU ARE A BUSINESS!
