In my 30 plus years of experience in building and leading teams to achieve big bold goals, I have experienced many different businesses and environments. Importantly, I have consistently found that the most successful leaders and teams are the ones who recognise that we are all building two teams - a team at work AND a team at home.
My experiences has covered businesses of all sizes and, having started out as an entrepreneur at 14, I’ve built and led teams in global corporations, start-up businesses, struggling businesses and high growth businesses. This includes 10+ years in Professional Services including five years at KPMG Corporate Finance and several stints as a CFO. Additionally, I have built multiple successful ventures from scratch, one of which I sold for a seven-figure sum.
I have also sailed twice around the world - the first time on a trophy-winning racing yacht and the second time with my family team - my wife and three children under the age of ten. This admittedly unique mix of experience prompted me to wonder why family teamwork is so rarely spoken about in business when it offers so many powerful insights and ideas about how to build thriving teams at work.
In my Keynote Talks, I reveal to my audiences a rarely discussed 'secret for success' for both business and family life that involves applying home/family values and practices at work and applying work values and practices at home - to the significant benefit of both. The result is that my audiences come away empowered to thrive and live their best lives both at work and at home.
We often share our personal and professional space with a lot of other people and learning to navigate our way through work and life with all its ups and downs is key to long term success and happiness.
So how do we work together and thrive? How do we build longevity and success into a team and business?
