Amanda's Why

I am passionate about creating happy and successful workplaces - they need not be mutually exclusive!

My focus is on building non-judgment in leadership through powerful leadership development programming, emotional intelligence-based assessment, and deeply insightful consulting, facilitation and coaching so that:

  • leaders lead through respect and accountability;
  • employees take personal pride and ownership in their work and how they show up; and
  • organizations act as a committed partner with every stakeholder, generating unprecedented success for everyone. 

  

I do this because, having been written off as a leader in my early career by an unskilled executive because of my shyness, I experienced my own powerful transformation as a leader through a process of receiving dysfunctional feedback that resulted in my own self reflection, deep work, and personal accountability. This, along with a recognition that so many people were unhappy at work, led me to pursue my career in emotional intelligence.  So through my personal story (which I share in my upcoming book), along with my emotional intelligence expertise and experience as a talent management professional, I have come to know that:

  • change is not only possible with the right focus but essential for transformational leadership
  • leadership is a privilege
  • respect is a human right, and we are all born good
  • non-judgment is the new leadership capability
  • leaders can only expect to lead in a transformational way if the systems they work within are non-judgmental
  • clarity, consistency, and integration are key to implementing organizational systems that drive sustainable change

 

The Infinity Symbol

I chose the infinity symbol for my logo as this symbol has deep personal meaning to me.  For me, the symbol represents endless possibilities, a never-ending oneness, and the duality of flow and structure creating a continual cycle of evolution.  It is an empowering symbol suggesting eternity and everlasting love.  The link to leadership for me is the essential capacity for open-mindedness which stems from non-judgment and presence.
