Siya Kolisi’s words after the RWC Final were very inspiring and humble and his team is the first to win the tournament, despite losing a game in the pool stages. A definite win for resilience.
I was meeting Darina to discuss her appearance at my annual networking dinner for women leaders, The Dinner For Ladies Who Don’t Lunch, which takes place in early November.
Over a couple of hours she shared with me some of her story.
What I found fascinating was that most of the breakthrough moments came from adversity.
In today’s world, leaders need to be aware that mindset has to be pro-actively managed. Why? Because it affects everything that matters. And in particular, it affects your state of mind or mood.
Below is a recording of an interview I did in August 2019 with Siun Byrne and Michael Daly of the “D15 Today” show on Phoenix FM. I spoke about gender balance at board and CEO level.
“I am not a religious person. But I do consider myself to be spiritual.”
These are words that I have heard increasingly from clients over the past 5 years.
Bear in mind that the majority of the people I work with are very battle-hardened, experienced and successful business leaders. What’s interesting is that they consider their spirituality to be a key asset in their success.
