Ruth brings over 20 years’ experience to her work, across an extremely diverse range of clients including senior leaders of global, household-name companies; entrepreneurs who are disrupting an industry in the name of a ‘purpose beyond a purpose’; grassroots experience with migrants to Australia and people whose career paths have been made redundant, helping them shape a new sense of purpose, skill and confidence in their working and personal lives.
She played a key role in developing and delivering the first nationally recognised (ARC) qualification in the profession of psychotherapy in Australia and integrates the power of strength-based approaches to build on what is unique to each person, the insights of psychotherapeutic frameworks to minimize what gets in the way and the wisdom from ancient traditions to frame our journey of growth across our lifetime.
Ruth’s mantra is “We lead through the quality of our relationships and the first and most important relationship is with ourselves.” The result is leaders who can establish the environment for shared and compelling purpose and mission to be first generated and then properly lived. It requires honest self-appraisal and compassion, along with an enhanced leadership toolkit to address current challenges from this new and more profound perspective.
