Creating Strengths Based Cultures

For organisations that serve the community

If your organisation fits within local or state government services and is currently going through internal change as a response to a new strategic direction or other such external pressure, your team is likely feeling overwhelmed, disengaged and well, let’s just say the water cooler conversation is not as constructive as it could be.

Fact: The longer the “change process” the more chance your most talented people will suffer “change fatigue.”

But change doesn’t have to roll that way.

How I help:

As a Change Professional, and Certified Gallup Strengths Coach, I help leaders and teams ignite their talents to form an actionable plan around a strategic goal. Talent doesn’t clock on and off, but you need to know when to turn it up, and turn it down, depending on your environment. The result? Your team stops whining at the water cooler (basically…). In all seriousness, this changes the culture of your organisation so that your people bring their activated talents to the table and move through the external change more effectively.

No more expensive band-aid solutions. By choosing this program you will have the plan in place that works with people, rather than putting another layer of red tape around their souls.

Igniting Enterprising Communities

Let’s build economic capacity, for real

Does your community or region have an economic capacity building plan that looks great on paper….but it’s just not happening?

I work with local government teams who are building enterprising communities in either regional areas or on the outskirts of a capital city to connect the disconnected and activate the talents of people who often feel isolated, undervalued and blocked from opportunity.

Working with enterprising communities is my “fiero”: it’s my passion.

How I help:

Through collaboration, we look at barriers to community participation to develop and deliver 8 week entrepreneurship programs. It’s all about connecting the disconnected and sparking their talent.  

Being the first to market in Australia with Gallup’s Entrepreneurial Talent Profiling Tool, I have a unique advantage to help create communities that means individuals can increase their capability and become commercially engaged in a way that aligns with their values.

Current programs that have been developed include:

Mumpreneur101 – focuses on enabling enterprising mothers develop their businesses whilst juggling the demands of children (yes, removing that development barrier is possible).

Artpreneur101 – enables creatives to be more commercial.  When you say “business plan” or “ideal customer” most creatives will have their eyes glaze over.  These sessions are out of the box, and interactive.  It’s about playing to different learning modalities.

Migrant Enterprising Women – fosters connection and recognises talent of some of our most disconnected and isolated members of the community.  Technology plays a strong role in helping participants connect and learn.

So what’s the outcome?

Participants in these programs improve their confidence, gain commercial skills, and increase their sense of wellbeing by connecting with like minded individuals.  Isolation and overwhelm are reduced.
