Are You Sabotaging Your Career? A Case Study
" Who is this persona?"
"Where did it come from?"
"What has given rise to its emergence?"
Those were some of the questions that were put before a leadership professional in one of my coaching sessions.

The Leadership DNA behavioural assessment before us was not aligned to that persona.
So, who was this and why had they emerged?
I have grown accustomed to helping individuals to identify blind spots and limiting factors in these engagements, but this breakthrough was epic.
Upon further probing there was recognition and acceptance that the individual had been engaged in a process of playing small for some time. Doubts were allowed to enter with respect to their capacity to participate actively in the strategic planning process.
An action plan is being executed incorporating steps to reaffirm self-confidence and targeted skills upgrade.
You may have noticed that "What Next" questions have been in your consciousness.
Or, maybe "What next" is now your new reality as you are currently engrossed in a new challenge.
Your situation may be that a fundamental change is imminent and future-readiness is an imperative.
You may be reviewing this from the perspective an Employer/HR-Talent Management Professional and you know that you have team members that would benefit greatly from this program.

Whatever your situation, why not take action now?
