Releasing your Leadership Potential through Creativity
Over the last eight years I have developed a variety of techniques incorporated into leadership training for both organisations and individuals. My belief is that by doing hands on practical, creative exercises people begin to approach their projects with a fresh productive perspective *

What is Creativity?
Why encourage Creativity in the work environment?
What benefits does Creativity bring to an organisation or an individual?
Creativity is not just about artistic expression but is evident in all areas of business and decision making. It is the vital element that allows for growth, innovation, change and success. A positive focus on creativity not only helps people innovate change but also helps reduce stress to improve overall wellbeing.
My innovative approach to leadership training and facilitation is based on my own creativity as a visual artist. Having working across a variety of sectors the common thread has been a creative approach to my work. I started my working life in the financial industry selling insurance, mortgages and pensions. Based on this experience I created ‘Moneyflow ‘a coaching practice which explored the relationship between an individual’s success and money.
I find inspiration for ways to develop my own creative expression from observing and being in the world around me. Colours, light, patterns and texture found in everything from the mundane to the extraordinary stimulate ideas for exercises and creativity prompts. These visual sources of inspiration along with music, food and smells constantly engage all the senses encourage thought and creativity. Inspiration also comes from my clients who always bring something fresh to a project.
I express my own creativity through painting, mixed media experimentation, journaling, photography, printmaking, dressmaking and creating content for leadership development.
I have a great sense of personal fulfilment and feel honoured seeing the positive impact that comes when my clients tap into and act on their creativity.
Alongside my role as a leadership trainer I continue to paint as I feel it is important to stay in touch with one’s own creativity. I paint rich vibrant colourful paintings filled with energy that uplift and inspire.
