2020 Goals: As an executive Life and Business Coach, I will continue to facilitate transformation and change in leaders and organisations. I plan to bring women into power with a leadership toolkit to show more consistency with poise when under pressure, openness to conflicting ideas, and thoughtfulness when engaging others. This program is important because their journey to leadership is not direct but with obstacles and need to negotiate around barriers. Recently, I launched new programs in response to the virtual working that will develop new mind-sets and skills of thinking.
Feminism to Me: Feminism for me comes in thousands of iterations, with the core belief that everybody on this planet deserves respect, compassion, opportunities, and love. I balanced polarities; never saw gender as an obstacle, as I navigated working in multiple countries and through a crisis, with a confidence that God made us equal!
Cult Products: My beauty routine is always organic; taking care of my health with vitamins, organic food, and exercise. I love Forest Essentials’ under-eye serum – Red Banana Flower & Potato Starch, Forest Essentials Advanced Soundarya Age Defying Serum with 24k gold, Raw Nature Red Clay Face Wash and Cocoon Repairing Night Cream.
Beauty for a woman in 2020: Women’s beauty is an imitable combination of inner grit and grace. Their innate nurture and strength have been demonstrated across the globe by women PM’s for their people-centric response to Covid-19! The trend is to gain “voice of clarity”, to lean into their ambition, be comfortable in their skin, sail through challenges, find freedom of expression, examine and deconstruct those societal norms and actively nurture their genuine selves.
