Whether you are new to role, have been promoted or have inherited a new team, at the forefront of your mind is the performance of the team. You may have an exceptionally small team or it may be a global workforce, either way, you need to make your mark and demonstrate your ability to drive results in a positive and sustainable way. Build a clear team ethos and operating rhythm takes time and the earlier you engage in clear strategy to do this, the quicker the results start to roll in. I have worked with organisations from the US, across Europe, the Middle East, the Far East and Japan to enhance their team capability and build outstanding team results through their leader. There is no greater risk to any business than a dysfunctional team so get on board early and ensure success is a key component of what you deliver.
You need to stand out from the crowd. You need to be seen and you need to be heard. You know your stuff, you just need to hone your skills so that your story helps others recognise your value. Executive Presence is an undervalued skill right up until you need it. University Education and traditional career paths spend all their time in the detail and no time on the big picture communication challenges associated with c-suite roles or VC rounds. I have worked with some of the largest organisations in the world to support their leaders to build their executive presence and tell their stories articulately and passionately. As a professionally trained actor who worked in Londons West End, I have a tool box of techniques to be shared that can give you the edge. With the right support, anyone can build their executive presence and make their mark on the world.
I have spent the past 8+ years providing strategic HR for 11 different clients. Consulting for these clients required that I deliver results; sharpening my ability to diagnose issues, plan solutions, and implement programs. The work ranged from talent and career frameworks, to succession planning, to talent mobility. By immersing myself into many different organizational structures and company cultures, I strengthened my comfort with ambiguity and dynamic approach to change management. • Spearheaded global programs (HCM, SaaS), negotiating with global offices, motivating, and managing global consultants to ensure consistency, communication, and client-focus. • Leveraged expert relationship building and communication to foster trust at all levels; mobilized local team strengths and collaboration while working on cross-functional teams internationally. • Revitalized processes, procedures and policies including sales and marketing process; requirements analysis process; program development process, and project delivery process. • Introduced cost reductions by reengineering and restructuring processes; developed robust control through system implementation, standard operating procedures, and controls.
