We make our own epoch.
Vicky sees her role as being someone who enables people to listen to their own voice and to question the limiting assumptions that are preventing them from living a rich and significant life - from doing work that matters. This comes from having the courage to follow their talent, from following that big “yes” burning inside and by living by their highest priorities.
Vicky is passionate about supporting leaders to “do leadership”; being a genuine leader is often in tension to progressing one’s career. She makes this possible by encouraging them to be congruent, develop a leadership voice, have a compelling story of the change being sought and by creating leadership capability in the people they wish to lead.
Her focus is always on how the work the team does creates value - connecting this to how that’s measured in the outside world - via competitive advantage, sustainable financial performance and the share price. She is particularly interested in decision-making in an ever-more volatile world and the role diverse teams play in avoiding groupthink and succumbing to the pressures of short-termism.
Vicky brings a high degree of presence, energy and a sense of potential and possibility such that her clients are able to step into the next epoch of their existence.
