Career Journey, Qualifications and Certifications

I've been formally trained in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering with experience working across the Caribbean, Europe and North America.

I started my career in the role of Process Improvement Specialist following a Graduate Engineer Programme at one of the largest manufacturing conglomerates in the Caribbean. 

As a prospective future General Manager in the group, I was fortunate to be trained and mentored by senior executives in all aspects of business operations, including Coca-Cola Business Systems.

Besides my  entrepreneurial experience of building tech-driven businesses, I've also been awarded various global Business and Leadership Certifications, including the Maxwell Leadership Certification in 2013.

I naturally specialise in helping Engineering, Manufacturing and Technology companies but I've supported a range of other types of organisations including some in the Financial Services sector.

My expertise and resources allow me to help executives and business leaders cement their A-Game in terms of all-round performance. 

My background means that I also excel at helping senior leaders develop the technical and emerging leaders in their teams who may face greater challenges adjusting to leadership roles or mastering the people skills required alongside technical ability to succeed.

3 Important Keys To Success in Leading High Performance

"An organisation will never outperform its leaders.


From personal experience and observations, I believe that 'Modern Leaders' must strive to excel in 3 core areas in order to drive top performance:
 
- LEAD PEOPLE on a journey of growth towards a clear, purposeful vision;
- LEVERAGE PROCESSES to maximise productivity and minimise human failure;
- SOLVE PROBLEMS by eliminating their root causes to prevent recurrence.


The fundamentals of leadership are timeless and unchanging. The art of their application must continuously evolve in the face of fast-changing realities."

HOW EXACTLY DO I HELP CLIENTS?

Here are a few more details about the main custom-tailored solutions that are offered to support clients globally.

ORGANISATIONAL CLIENTS

  • I partner with corporate executives and managers to overcome costly toxic cultures, poor engagement, low morale, poor succession and high employee turnover by unlocking leadership excellence and developing harmonious high-performance teams across their organisations. I do this by:

    1) Identifying the hidden root causes of the business problems to ensure any proposed solutions are relevant and required;
     
    2) Equipping all levels of leaders with world-class leadership models across the organisation, licensed from Dr. John C. Maxwell (INC Magazine's #1 Leadership Expert) and delivered within Life Engineer frameworks, to develop a consistent, high-performance leadership culture that drives performance and engagement;

    3) Leveraging Strengths and Behavioural Analyses for strategic hiring and the establishment of cohesive, well-structured teams that know how to manage conflicts productively and avoid destabilising morale and culture.
  • I help business leaders equip their teams to unlock optimal human and process performance to accelerate the achievement of strategic individual and organisational objectives. I do this by leveraging our Life Engineer frameworks and other resources to train and coach teams for sustainable high-performance via development in key areas such as personal productivity, effective communication, problem-solving, entrepreneurial-thinking and process improvement.

INDIVIDUAL CLIENTS

  • Periodically, I coach and teach professionals and corporate leaders to achieve purpose, fulfilment, alignment, peak performance, balance and desired success in life and work by guiding the design of strategic, big-picture life plans based on individual personality, strengths, desires and vision which are then implemented via a process of reverse-engineering and ongoing coaching, training and accountability to ensure effective execution and progress.
  • Beyond my contributions to leading publications and podcasts, I help professional and business leaders to stay 'on top of their game' through public content, online courses, micro-learning workshops, webinars and communities in order to maintain the levels of growth and performance required for continued success in a world that is constantly evolving at increasing speeds.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT AND PHILANTHROPY

My personal mission is to make a positive global impact via my skills and leave a legacy of re-imagining the application of engineering to people and business development.

In my private time, you may find me periodically using my skills to help children prepare for future success via creative media and educational programmes at either The Pilly Pelican Company or volunteering at I Am A Girl NGO.
