Find out how to say goodbye to your inner imposter



Leadership is lonely

and it shackles you to corporate success.  I wish someone had been there to tell me. 

They weren’t .

Now I am the mentor I wish I’d had back then. Don’t go it alone, instead, lead by example and show how fulfilment, freedom and diversity grows businesses (and people).

How alone are you?

After a successful career culminating in by being CEO of a US$250 million steel business, my credibility, experience, caring nature, and my ability to challenge fairly, far exceeds the standard coaching certifications one can find in the market place.

If you are a business executive or leader, how disconnected from your life are you?

Craftport is different. As a successful, female, former CEO, I have a unique perspective and approach to building the confidence of women in male dominated industries.  I know from experience that by thinking AND acting differently, you can make REAL change happen for yourself, within your team and for your business.

Inspirational & Informative

Beautiful Soul

You are such a beautiful soul and make me feel so much more ‘together’.

You are like an angel.

Permission to be me

I’ve also made huge progress around how to be a leader, how to do that strategic work and how to make time for that, how to use the tools available in order to do that more effectively, and therefore, come to understand what it means to be a leader, and all of the things that come with that and that I can trust my thought processes and decision making.

You’ve managed to ground me. Given me useful tools and helped me understand and validate that I’m not making up in my head, something not okay is going on, and that I can deal with it. You have given me permission to be me basically. And to see that by me being me, my business would be more successful.

And finally I really like you as a person. I feel like we get on really well and I that surprised me. I wasn’t expecting that to be part of it as well.
