That’s why in 2009, I left Canada to join a small solar company with a social mission to electrify homes in Africa. This move led to 12 whirlwind years at fast-growing and innovative companies, which gave me great leadership and management experience that I now use to coach emerging social innovators.
After 12 years in social impact enterprises, I know the challenges. Having gained a strong understanding of what emerging leaders in Africa face today, I lead with kindness and cultural sensitivity to provide a safe and supportive space.
From starting and growing companies to strategy formulation, business development, capital raising, and even HR management, I experienced it all. And it was challenging work!
I overcame these challenges. And I was successful in my roles.
But I didn’t do it alone.
No one can.
I learned that guidance and support are crucial for success.
We were able to see success by motivating the team, relying on mentors, and developing both individuals and groups. Yet, I have seen many leaders lack the guidance and support networks to build sustainable success.
This led me to my mission to support social impact leaders in their quest for change. I impart real-world knowledge and guide leaders to find their joy and become individuals who can change the world.
My coaching style is bold and authentic. Plus, I make sure that we have fun along the way!
