Our working lives are a pilgrimage of discovery - one that shapes who we are, and the relationship we have with ourselves and all others.
But working life can feel like one long masterclass on how to fit in and 'fix' all the ways we are inadequate or inconvenient.
So, we can all benefit from a little help to reclaim our best qualities and step into a more vibrant expression of ourselves.
How To Be True To Yourself At Work is a transformative learning experience for busy, big-hearted people.
By learning how to reconnect to our essential nature as caring, connected, creative, vital, courageous, confident, playful beings, we lift ourselves and others up.
When we feel like we belong at work, we are more likely to perform, more likely to thrive and more likely to stay. And 'fitting in' is actually the barrier (not the pathway) to true belonging.
By reconnecting to our deepest selves, and learning how to care for our different 'parts' along the way, we liberate our highest potential, serve the greatest good, and co-create cultures of true belonging.
"True belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world."
Dr Brene Brown
Self-fidelity is the practice of being true to your essential nature.
You can practice meditation to reconnect to your wisdom.
You can practice yoga to reconnect to your body.
Now, you can practice self-fidelity to reconnect to the truth of who you are.

I love to co-create with the curious
Having spent way too many years trying to convince the closed-minded, today I choose to co-create with the curious.
And, given you're here, I'm guessing you're curious about what it really means to be true to yourself at work (and in life).
You're in the right place!
In my ground-breaking program How to Be True to Yourself at Work you'll discover the powerful (yet simple) evidence-based tools that will empower you to honour who you authentically are in all aspects of your life.
In this program I guide you step-by-step to learn and practice more empowered ways of thinking and being to be more yourself at work - and inspire others to do the same.
I loved creating this program and I am confident that you will find it to be both practical and uplifting.
It's not enough to love what we do. Watch my short video to find out why.
It’s not to enough to love what you do. You’ve also got to love who you’re being while you do it. And it’s hard to love you’re being at work when you’re not being yourself.
When we feel empowered to honour who we authentically are at work we liberate our best qualities and co-create cultures of true belonging.
This program is for anyone who yearns to be more themselves at work.
We all want to feel like we belong. And when we feel a sense of belonging at work, we’re more likely to perform at our best, more likely to thrive and more likely to stay.
The problem is that most people don’t feel truly seen, heard and accepted at work. And one of the biggest impediments to belonging is fitting in.
Real belonging comes from being who we are, not changing who we are.
The good news is that we can all learn how be true to ourselves at work by practicing a ground-breaking approach to reconnecting to our true nature and taking good care of the different ‘parts’ of ourselves along the way.
And that’s precisely what I offer in this program.
This program is for you if you want to learn an evidence-based approach that will empower you to …
Deeply understand who you really are at your core
Create unshakeable trust in your innate leadership qualities
Discover an uplifting alternative to the inner battle of pretending and fitting in
Understand, appreciate, care for, the different ‘parts’ of yourself
Harness your true essence as an inner source of renewable energy
Really give others permission to bring their whole selves to work
Love who you’re being, not just what you do
When we are connected to the truth of who we are, the work we do cannot be replicated and we feel uplifted and alive.

“We shift ourselves not in sweeping pivots, but in movements so tiny that they are hardly perceptible, even in our view. Years pass before we finally discover that, after handing over our power piece by piece, we no longer even look like ourselves.”
