Is this you?




๐˜๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐ฌ๐ฎ๐ฉ๐ž๐ซ๐ฉ๐จ๐ฐ๐ž๐ซ is your ability to combine your technical knowledge with leadership, empathy and relationship skills which is unusual for the environments youโ€™ve been working in.

You have similarly high expectations of everyone else which puts inordinate stress on your team and partners, and you often get let down. That really hurts as you go out of your way to support them to shine.

Problem is, youโ€™ve built such an empire of loyal supporters it will be very hard to make the step change you need to make. You donโ€™t like to leave people behind.

Afraid of losing what you have worked so hard for, youโ€™re scared to step up into the unknown and become the impactful leader you know you can be.
