Over the years, I have led projects and Operations in a wide variety of industries. My experience ranges from smaller start-ups, all the way up to large multinational companies, with personal responsibility for $100M+ budgets.
I have learnt that simplicity is always the best approach to support organisations and individuals in reaching their objectives.
My mission is to help Operation Leaders simplify and improve challenging projects so they can build a successful business whilst achieving their goals and objectives.
I've built my foundation on five core principles which, if followed, will help lead you to success and job fulfilment.
***Authenticity | Inclusivity | Big Picture Thinking | Simplification | Treat Others With Respect ***
Listen with curiosity, speak with honesty, and act with integrity.
Listening with curiosity enables relationships to thrive. Speaking with honesty allows people to be truthful with themselves and one another, and acting with integrity encourages ethical behaviour to the highest standard. Relationships need curiosity to grow, honesty to deepen, and integrity to continue.
Take responsibility & act with kindness.
We all have a choice when it comes to our actions so always act with the best intention and purpose. It is important to be responsible for our own actions and mistakes so we can continue to improve and evolve.
Embrace risk as the key to growth.
Taking risk can be intimidating and stressful, but it is a necessary activity for all types of development. Risk can result in failure, but failure also means growth. Taking a risk means you feel confident and secure enough to explore something out of your own comfort zone.
Zoom out to zoom in.
To find simplicity and calm within the chaos, you have to zoom out to zoom in. In order to create better organisations and operations you need to see the bigger picture. It is easy to get stuck on the finer detail, so we need to come out and look from above.
Pragmatism over perfection.
Perfection is an impossible outcome to achieve so you shouldn't let perfection stop you from trying. Improvement through iteration is better than aiming for an unattainable result. Perfection will only lead to procrastination, so pragmatism should be prioritised over perfection.
