Who inspired you to pursue a career in stress management and peak performance?

No one inspired me. When I was an Advertising Executive then a #1 of 500 sales representative with a Fortune 500 Company I noticed people's body language and the micro messages they were broadcasting and how that affected their performance. I started creating my own body centred approaches and also became certified in Body Centred Psychotherapy.

What can your coaching program offer an organisation?

I help leaders; teams etc use all of their intelligences, IQ, EQ and BQ to:

  • Recognize and overcome limiting beliefs and habits that may be sabotaging productivity and creativity.
  • Communicate more authentically and powerfully with self and others.
  • Learn how to relax more, stay engaged and react less in stressful situations.
  • Make choices with renewed confidence and create outcomes desired
  • Reclaim passion and purpose and align that with the business or organization's mission.
  • Have a no holding back cheer-leader and accountability coach for goals and commitments.

How do you become an inspirational leader?

Inspirational Leadership

You become an inspirational leader when you have full awareness of who you are and learn how to stay engaged, resilient and on purpose no matter what. So often we set out to inspire others but the logistics, the selling, the fixing and managing of business consumes us, and we don't take the time to reflect on our original purpose for being the leader of a team.

When the leader knows, embodies and expresses their purpose and self value-not just in theory, but as something real and vital it inspires and motivates others to follow. Purpose allows you to passionately engage with your self and others, keeps you on track and helps you choose where to put your focus.

Your purpose infuses your team with meaning and guides you to lead them through each challenge that may arise. Continue to explore who you are, what your value is and what is driving you to lead and that exploration will help you become an inspirational leader.

Can body language be used to increase the power of one’s presence?

Absolutely! Your body is always communicating and sending out signals and micro messages whether you are aware of it, or not. Most of us are only subliminally aware of the small or large mannerisms, facial expressions, physical gestures, and various postural cues that express through our body all the time. And yet other people see and are responding to all of those cues and expressions.

To embody an executive leadership presence its advantageous to be aware that your most decisive communication is what I call your body billboard which includes vocal tones, inflections, physical gestures, postures, involuntary movements, breathing, pacing of speech, and numerous other subtle and not-so subtle signals.

Its messages may completely contradict what you communicate to your team. That incongruence generally results in confusion, difficulty and self-sabotage. The messages we broadcast on our billboard can mean the difference between success and failure, engaging others to believe in and follow our lead.
