VISION! What is It? Why Do You Need It? How Do You Make It More Powerful and Vital with I.M.P.A.C.T™? And Featuring the Alison Delaney ‘Little Chick and Little Bird’ Case Study

VISION! What is It? Why Do You Need It? How Do You Make It More Powerful and Vital with I.M.P.A.C.T™? And Featuring the Alison Delaney ‘Little Chick and Little Bird’ Case Study

 

Destination Me™ Vital Vision Compass

 

Vital Vision™, The Powerful Source of Authentic Self-Leadership Has Huge IMPACT!

#Vision is globally recognised as the imperative for Leaders – but this is for EVERYONE! This is THE MOST POWERFUL TOOL for Designing, Creating and Living the Life You Love, with Courage and Confidence, on Power, Passion and Purpose!

Vision is Life Changing and World Changing and the means to reconnect with your own – or design your own, should be accessible to everyone.

I – #Imagination – to Dream and Create What You Specifically Want – With Real Intention

 

M – #Magic Insights – Mastermind and Masterplanning Strategies Flow

 

P – #Power – that comes from the Specific Vital Vision™ Blueprint Process that Shuts down your Internal Critic Voice

 

A – #Attraction –  (Cosmic Ordering, LOA, The Secret) that Comes from Switching on Your Brain’s Subconscious RAS SAT NAV™. Knowing, Feeling, Seeing Believing With Clarity What You Want and Will Receive and are Ready to Receive

 

C – #Connection – Mind, Spirit, Body and Soul. Think Cosmic Ordering, The Secret and The Law of Attraction Rolled into One, In Your Corner and On Your Side

 

T – #Transformation – with Traction and Leverage that just keeps on Growing

 

First, let me share why I am writing this. This article is based on what really works for people to create and live their ideal life and business but it also has much wider applications globally and my plan is to get it out to a much bigger audience. With all the changes happening in the world I am discovering that thousands more people, entrepreneurs, leaders, businesses and organisations, even governments and countries, would benefit from having access to the powerful methods, tools and techniques, based on real-life Success Stories, not academic theory used in my Vital Vision™ Blueprint process.

This is based on real-life Success Stories, not academic theory. The methods and techniques used in my Vital Vision™ Blueprint process are tried, tested and proven over 20 years working with thousands of entrepreneurs and leaders, businesses of all sizes and organisations – and it works powerfully. I hope you enjoy reading this, find something of value to you and welcome your feedback and ask you to share.

So, I am sharing this because after years of providing private 1-2-1 Vital Vision™ Blueprint Sessions, Destination Me ™ and other Life Change Success programmes, Coaching and Mentoring and speaking on these topics at major conferences in the UK and Europe, I am creating the first complete turnkey online programme to equip more people globally with the tools I created to ‘Design, Live and Love the Life of Your Dreams with Courage and Confidence in Purpose, Passion and Power’.

For leaders, entrepreneurs with teams or small businesses, larger businesses and other organisations the Shared Vital Vision™ Blueprint is the technique designed to work specifically for them and is key to their success in engagement, traction, leverage and commitment to personal ownership in achievement of the vision. This topic is covered in another article.

I am not discussing all the various (and proven) Neuroscience, NLP, CBT and other modalities which are working in the Vital Vision™ Blueprint process but you may well recognise some. One of the keys to success is the precise combination of elements that I use and how these work together, gained through several years of developing this work.

SO…

Vision! What is It?

Let me first say what infuriates me! Lip service to Vision! When people – businesses and organisations especially – say let’s create a Vision Statement which is doomed to failure because where is the I.M.P.A.C.T. and Passion that importantly engages the emotions?

Many people will say ‘Eyesight’ or ‘Seeing’, which it is, but here we are talking about ‘seeing’ in another way. ‘Seeing’ potential, opportunity and what’s possible. When you introduce the ‘Vital’ element for I.M.P.A.C.T, you also harness ‘Mindsight’ and ‘Mindset’, ‘Heartsight’ ‘Soulsight’ and ‘Spiritsight’ with ‘Insight’ and ‘Foresight’ connected to your conscious and unconscious brain. It’s the Law of Attraction, The Secret and Cosmic Ordering, all rolled into one and on your side!

Can you IMAGINE how Powerful it would be to have all this working for you to achieve the success you seek?

A ‘Vital’ Vision is the most powerful form of vision you can have. What makes a vision vital? It is the How, the method, the technique, the combination of elements used for forming it. Some people, the most successful Entrepreneurs and Leaders especially, (but not all) have this ability as a natural gift or talent. You will recognise instantly those that have it, there is an aura about them and their success is written large on the world, delivering wonderful achievements and attracting huge followings.

Others can achieve their own vision for success through a variety of methods, including Vision Boards which work on some levels for some people. I’ll explain more later. But there is no direct comparison to personal experience of the Vital Vision™ Blueprint creation process and the speed at which it brings results.

I explain the ‘Vital’ part of vision like this. Think of your most powerful memories. Bring one to mind right now. What is it about that memory? Is it a picture, a movie? Is it colourful, noisy, moving, do you smell a particular aroma? One of your senses is usually the trigger for this recall, whether it is from smell, sight, sound, touch, taste or emotions.  If no string memory is coming to mind right now, which can happen, just make a note to observe the next time something triggers a powerful memory and note what the trigger was. With a Vital Vision you have total recall and connection, whether you are thinking about it or not, it is stored as a powerful feeling and memory and is continually and quietly working for you, even when you are asleep or ‘taking a day off’!

Some people think you either have it or you don’t. Well here’s another thought that I have found to be true. We all have it, but with the majority of people it is not ‘Connected’ to their conscious or ‘Turned On’

The most powerful memories have a combination of all these elements and so does a ‘Vital Vision™. Why? Because the way you create it is Impactful and unforgettable.

When creating a ‘Vital Vision™ we also switch on your brain’s RAS SAT NAV™ so that you are tuned in to spot the exact opportunities, circumstances, people and resources you need to achieve your vision. Think of this like ‘The Law of Attraction, The Secret and Cosmic Ordering’ all lined up and working for you on your side. It is truly amazing what happens when you have your own Vital Vision™.

I have seen so many lives and businesses transformed and fulfilled, stepped up to a much higher level of achievement and success, new businesses started, world class speakers and new powerful leaders emerging, new products created, best selling books written, global businesses launched, and much more, all in the space of a few short months, and that’s why I am so passionate about helping more entrepreneurs experience creating their ‘Vital Vision™.

Because when you decide you want to connect or reconnect to your Inner Vision were born with, some people think of this as destiny, or create a new vision for your life or business, how wonderful to make that connection and bring your vision out into the world where your unconscious mind is still working at getting it without you even having to be constantly thinking about it!

What Triggers the Need for a Vital Vision™?

This is different for everyone. You may be quite content but feel there is something major missing in your life but don’t know what. Or you may be extremely dissatisfied, frustrated and desperate for change. There are many triggers. Add your own if they are not here but the Common ones are:

+             Change – either because you want this or caused by circumstances around you

+             Finding yourself ‘ Stuck ‘ or ‘Blocked’

+             Frustration with your life/business

+             Pressure to ‘Change’

+             Significant Emotional Incident

+             Loss of some kind

+             Fed up with searching for solutions (to anything)

+             At a crossroads not sure what to do next or where to start

+             Needing some Clarity, Focus and Direction (not necessarily with something

life-changing – could be a new business, innovation, or something else)

+             Want to make a difference

+             Want to be so much more Successful (even though you may have already

enjoyed Success)

The reasons Clients come to me very, but they usually arrive with a major challenge or opportunity. For example, after years of struggling to make a success of their business, working hard but not getting the returns they deserve, they want a major boost, more sales, income and profits, add some Rocket Fuel! Or perhaps they are at a crossroads or considering a complete life change but don’t know where to begin or a major opportunity appears and they are not sure whether to pursue it and what to do. It IS sometimes very difficult to do this alone and get it absolutely  right for you.

it, it just ‘Is’ and it happens – with your permission and direction.

I know that many people create Vision Board by pasting pictures from magazines and that’s OK if it works for them. But I found that does not work for me. Why? Because my imagination, my dreams, are bigger and more different than what I can find the right images for PLUS I know the power of your own Vital Vision™ that only You can create because it is already deep within you, and needs a guide with the combination of techniques, energy and skill to help you draw this out in the right way for you!

Entrepreneurs also come when they are already successful but are not feeling fulfilled. They have the feeling that despite all their success, something is still missing and they want to find out what it is. Experiencing their ‘Vital Vision™ has resulted in, for example, important new charities being launched, finding new partners and relationships, exiting business profitably and gaining freedom, becoming an ‘Expert Speaker’ on the global stage, discovering new ways to do good in the world and give back, new horizons and adventures, gaining and giving permission to follow a long-held dream that has been pushed down and ignored in the getting on with their businesses and lives.  And much more. It’s different for everyone, powerful and it works wherever you are at!

And this is not a one hit wonder. Once you have your ‘Vital Vision™ – it keeps on and on working for you! Over time, your life and the world will change and you will be able to adapt from the strong foundation you now have.

Don’t take my word for it though. I’d love to just share with you what happened for Alison Delaney since experiencing her Vital Vision™.

Vital Vision™ Blueprint Case Study – Alison Delany Founder Little Bird People Development and Author of ‘Little Chick Has Lunch on the Moon’

Alison Delaney  Little Chick Book stackValerie Dwyer with Alison Delaney 2

Here’s Alison’s experience…..

Alison is a Coach, International Motivational Speaker,the Founder of the successful company Little Bird People Development. She is also the Author of a very special book for inspiring children’s dreams – ‘Little Chick Has Lunch on the Moon’. I encourage you to read the book! It is absolutely beautiful and inspiring for adults too! When we met and she handed me a copy I just knew that every child (and adult) deserved to have the book for themselves.

Since Alison made this video her ‘Vital Vision™ has kept on working and will continue to do so. In the past 6 months she has developed the new Little Bird Dreams Workshops, initially having huge success working with UK schools then recently had their Global Launch in South Africa as the starting point to take her inspirational book and workshops to schools in every Country through Country Licensing, with enquiries already in from New Zealand, India and USA.

She now has a Buy One Gift One so that for every book sold, the purchaser is gifting a book to a less fortunate child in another country AND the buyer gets to write an inspiring and encouraging message to that child for the book inside cover. I have seen such wonderful little notes that make my heart sing to read them.

Global Companies are now starting to incorporate the Workshop programme and Buy One Gift One books into their CSR Programmes.

Little Chick is now the star of a lovely range of desirable tableware and giftware and there’s much more to come. Global Offers of one kind or another pour in – but they are being studied carefully because they must align with Alison’s Vital Vision™!

So just take a quick look at this very short video link Alison Delaney Talks about Her Vital Vision to see Alison explain in her own words what happened for her. Remember, this was just after she experienced the process that will now always be hers and keeps on working. What I have outlined above has happened since and it’s an ongoing journey.

I’d love your feedback. I’d also love to help. What did you think after reading this article? What was helpful for you? Too long? Too short? Prefer video or audio format? What would you like to know more about related to this article? As the topic is visual would you like more images or infographics? I’m planning more related topics coming soon, so here’s your opportunity to positively influence the content with what will help you.

In my published book ‘Woman Power: Strategies for Female Leaders’ I devote a whole Chapter to ‘Vital Vision™, The Powerful Source of Authentic (Self) Leadership’ Let me know if you would like the extract emailing to you.

Thank you for your time. My greatest desire for you is that you find and connect with your own true #VitalVision that you were born with – the Blueprint for Living the Life You Love with Courage and Confidence on Power, Passion and Purpose!

By the way -we are a Lifetime Partner with B1G1 and every product, service, project we sell? We support B1G1 in funding Global Projects that Make the Local Difference! From clean water for children and communities to training for #entrepreneurs in still developing countries, we are proud to play our part!

Can you think of anything MORE POWERFUL that discovering and living the life you were born to live?

FACEBOOK TOTALLY IRRESPONSIBLE OR PRESENTING US WITH WONDERFUL NEW OPPORTUNITIES? VIRAL POSTS – A MATTER OF OPINION OR EXPERIENCE? ‘LITTLE CHICK HAS LUNCH ON THE MOON’ HAS A VIEW!

April 11, 2017

FACEBOOK TOTALLY IRRESPONSIBLE OR PRESENTING US WITH WONDERFUL NEW OPPORTUNITIES? VIRAL POSTS – A MATTER OF OPINION OR EXPERIENCE? ‘LITTLE CHICK HAS LUNCH ON THE MOON’ HAS A VIEW!

If you happen to READ this FB – please RESPOND! It’s clearly no use going through the usual channels on the website!!!

 I am writing this post is the hope of Facebook finally responding to my request for a solution to what happened recently when a #Wonderful story I shared on FB – a little snippet of Client Alison Delaney’s Celebration – went viral – without that intention!!

Alison is changing the world, #empoweringchildren to have and keep their dreams as the Author of the inspirational ‘Little Chick Has Lunch on the Moon’ and Creator of the ‘Little Bird Dreams Workshops’

I’d also be extremely happy for anyone to post me a solution in the comments below. FB have been totally unresponsive to my plea for help for the many friends who have received multiple copies of this post because other friends have kept sharing it…

 

Who knew a lovely little story would open so many Hearts?

This is how it went. This is the simple FB post – nothing else:-  oh except there was something that I inadvertently did with the post – having NO idea of the potential Heart Centred IMPACT of this little post that people absolutely loved and SHARED, and SHARED and SHARED and are still sharing although I have expressly asked them to hide, delete or ignore but NOT TO SHARE! – but I can’t share that here…

 

Valerie Dwyer with Alison Delaney 2

 An exciting time spent with the wonderful Valerie Dwyer. Little Chick Has Lunch on the Moon is now winging its way to South Africa🚀
#empoweringchildren

 

The origins that triggered this story? Alison had gone through three of my #powerful life (and business) transformation modules in the My Wonderful Life Coach™ Destination Me™ Intensive change programme.  Module 1 – Clear Your Mind Clutter – to get her into a clear and open minded space to be truly creative a powerful #VitalVision™ Blueprint and Module 2 – actually creating her #VitalVision™ Blueprint for her Dream Life and Module 3 – #VitalVision™ Brainstorm

As everyone who has been through these processes themselves knows, the effects are immediate – like adding Rocketfuel – your brain is switched on with knowing exactly what you want BUT also with the Clarity, Focus, Direction and Strategies to get you there so that the steps you take from then on are taking you exactly to where you want to be.

Alison wanted to #empowerchildren all over the world with her #Wonderful Dreams Workshops based around her best-selling and inspirational children’s book ‘Little Chick Has Lunch on the Moon’ which I had read and was Wowed by! (I happen to think this is a Fantastic Book for Adults too!!)

South Africa was identified as the first stage of a Global Launch for a number of key reasons I don’t need to go into. As you will know – when you are clear about what you want, the Universe moves to make it happen – and so it did with astonishing speed that is the hallmark of the 1-2-1 work I do with entrepreneurs.  T

The book is a splendid Buy One – Give One that individuals and also Corporates for their CSR are taking up in increasing numbers. For every book sold the purchaser is giving a book to a child who is disadvantaged and living somewhere else in the world. . More and more schools are also taking up the workshops and the demand is increasing now in other countries we have identified as our priorities.

So this is a wonderful success story with a little hiccup that I have been apologising to people for days now. Tried a fix that someone suggested and it seemed to work. Then someone shared that darn post again!!

To any of my FB friends who see this blogpost, now you know what happened in more detail. I thanks you SO much for your understanding if you are still with me. I value ALL my friendships…

#Appreciate your reading this. #Gratitude for your time and consideration. If you know a fix, I’d love to hear from you in the comments below….Thank you SO much…

collage_hd-2016-10-05-11_26_52

http://www.valeriedwyer.co.uk quietly went LIVE TODAY! On time, as planned.

And recovering from my recent head injury, I am celebrating….

The site is deliberately brief. The focus for this month is on my highly acclaimed global female Success Strategies book ‘Woman Power: Strategies for Female Leaders’ (and entrepreneurs!!), written with 15 other global women leaders, entrepreneurs, coaches and consultants and applauded for it’s diversity and equality of input and content.

There’s also the opportunity to pre-register for my forthcoming ‘Vital Vision™ Clear Your Mind Clutter’ ebook

Behind the scenes there’s a flurry of activity getting the next newsletter ready, as well as the new website for http://www.mywonderfullifecoach.co.uk

Here’s a taster of the forthcoming newsletter (which has now been running for several successful years) and which contains latest news, updates,  opportunities, events and free resources for women entrepreneurs:-

“Vital Vision™ – Think the ‘Law of Attraction’, ‘The Secret’, and ‘Cosmic Ordering’ on Steroids!™”

Sounds a BIG ask – but read on below, the evidence is undeniable…and this is only the start!!

And it’s all within YOU right now – I’m simply the vehicle for unlocking it, bringing it out and making it happen….

WOW! What a year this has been for our #entrepreneurial community! AND there’s still SO much time to gear UP (when you get started NOW!)….before 2017 kicks in!  I already feel as if I’ve had many of the BEST Christmas Presents I could possibly have, thanks to the client successes we’ve been celebrating this year. How are we summing up our work together?

“Vital Vision™ – Think the ‘Law of Attraction’, ‘The Secret’, and ‘Cosmic Ordering’ on Steroids!™”

‘GLOBAL’ has definitely followed through the theme I set way back in November 2015..for 2016 – for myself, the business, Clients and our #entrepreneurial community

Pinching myself right now! ….

2016 began with invites to Keynote, sign my book ‘Woman Power Strategies for Female Leaders’ and run the newly developed Group Workshop for my life changing entrepreneurs Vital Vision™ Blueprint at Conferences and Events in Prague, South Africa, Bonn, Berlin, Dubai, Cairo – and the UK!!

Ending 2015 with a Keynote Talk and a first, the launch of my specially developed group Vital Vision™ Blueprint Workshop attended by delegates at the Inaugural Lincolnshire Women’s Enterprise Day (which was subsequently awarded the prestigious GEWUK High Impact Host Badge 2015) the feedback reassured me that I had to ‘Go Global’ with my life changing programmes.

So early 2016 I flew out of the ice box that was Prague and the hugely successful inaugural ‘International Women in Leadership Conference’ that saw me Chair as well as Keynote, promote my book ‘Woman Power Strategies for Female Leaders’ AND run the Workshop, to fly just 36 hours later to take part in the 9 day Entrepreneur’s Institute programme in the heat of South Africa (where I discovered Ireland’s Eileen Forrestal and her COOL ‘Get UP and Go Diaries’). Within 3 days of return to the UK it was all ‘Go’ with the ‘Idea to Enterprise’ Programme which involved workshops, one to one mentoring programmes for several participants and Keynotes at Programme Days and the final Conference. Huge thanks to project manager Bernadette Sarginson of Empower Coaching & Training for the invitation to take part and the lovely testimonial received afterwards…

On the journey, I have made some amazing new friends from among women entrepreneurs and leaders determined to succeed on the global stage…

Nothing happens in isolation of course – so you won’t be surprised to learn that many Clients and members of this community have achieved their own global and UK launches and major successes this year, too many to mention today but I’d love you to join me in celebrating some…

For those of you reading about yourself here – well done for stepping out of your #ComfortZone..

And for those of you not reading about yourself, ‘If not now, when?’ Don’t sit on the fence any longer! email me or skype valerie.dwyer to explore how we can work together to make your wildest dreams come true…starting with one transformational day…and whatever level of support you need to make it happen – we have it ALL in my ‘Woman Power Dream Team™!

The thing is this – A Dream Remains Just a Dream Until YOU Take Action! So let me seed the idea here…Get in touch and discover how we can make YOUR Dreams Come True…in 2017

Be Calm, Time Out, Relax, Step Back…See the #Wonderful Bigger Picture #Vision

When there’s too much to do, too many directions, too many avenues to follow, too many opportunities to take advantage of, in this busy, busy world – Time Out and Step Back to see the bigger picture.

However you show up in the world, whatever happens, the world will go on turning. We either take the time ourselves or the Universe has a way of making sure that it happens – and in no uncertain terms.

We can’t all get into a helpicopter to fly high and look down on what’s happening (when we do though, everything comes into true perspective.

However, there is another way that will focus you. Take a large  white sheet of paper in whatever size fits your dreams, your choice of pens, markers or paints, and then carefully consider the way you want to be, do and have from now on.

Very simplified I know, and I have much more than I can share about this today, here’s a #Wonderful starting point for #Change… more to follow or you can sign up for my ‘Mindset Clutter Clearing’ ebook that prepares you for getting Clarity of #Vision,  #Focus  and #Direction (plus additional forthcoming resources) at www.mywonderfullifecoach.co.uk when this goes live end of October 2016.

Here’s what women entrepreneurs are saying on you tube about how my #holistic #transformational #VitalVision™ Blueprint has changed their lives and businesses  https://www.youtube.com/c/valeriedwyer

Look forward to connecting…Have a #Wonderful Day

 

 

 

STEP ONE – AIM for the Moon – and even Beyond. Everything is Possible

October 5, 2016

STEP ONE  – AIM for the Moon. If you miss, you may hit a Star! Need I say more?

Life is for Living and BIG DREAMS are there for the Making. Dreaming small does you no service at all…in terms of your true potential.

Often we feel too overwhelmed to get out of our #ComfortZone and take on the whole wide world – how sad this is when we have SO much to offer…

The challenge also may be that we’re stuck, blocked, have too many choices or too few – so where to begin.

STEP BACK. Take yourself out of your routine, habits, whatever. What you need is your clear vision for what you really want. Before you begin this process, however, you need a preliminary, a ‘Clearing Process’ so that you start anew, renew, recreate with less or No Baggage….

I’m working on turning the effective Clearing Process that I’ve developed into an ebook. Sign up with your email if you would like to know when it’s available and also when the

My Wonderful Life Coach™ website with digital resources and support goes live.

What’s Next – STEP TWO – Create your #VitalVision with #IMAGINE! help…

Check out the latest videos on my youtube channel now to give you  flavour of how together we can transform your life, business, world beginning with ONE SINGLE AMAZING #IMAGINE! DAY!!! 

Back soon..Have a Wonderful Day!

 

 

 

 

COURAGE! CHANGE is the ONLY Way to Be, Do, Have, More Than You Currently Are…

October 3, 2016

courage-with-red

And what stops us in our tracks? The dreaded #ComfortZone.

But

The Thing about #ComfortZone is This….

After the initial FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real), when you TAKE ACTION, as things begin to change, you experience a sense of relief (partly because you have made a decision and therefore removed uncertainty) and with that comes excitement, exhilaraton and #Success.

What’s the alternative? To be stuck. So Movement is essential. Better still, that this movement is directed – because whatever the situation, when you have an overall high level view (#VitalVision™) of EXACTLY where your ideal life lies, unseen forces as well as your own determination will ensure you get there.

Who am I to be saying this? Well as I recover from a serious head injury my passion for showing people, especially women entrepreneurs, how to get the life and business of their dreams only intensifies.

And having overcome significant, and I mean SIGNIFICANT, challenges every decade of my life,  including a Life threatening Pulmonary Embolism; more shattered Vertebrae than you can imagine; being paralysed after falling from the attic of a three storey building;  PTSD from a major road traffic accident; and more..BUT  I’ve still created 10 businesses of my own and helped over 30,000 others to start and grow theirs by revealing how with your own personal #VitalVision™  PLUS THE #SuccessStrategies that flow out of this and a BIG chunk of #Determination, #Belief and #Confidence – and possibly the Coaching and Mentoring helps too… that Everything IS Possible™ and I SO want to share the HOW…you can CREATE the Life and Business YOU REALLY WANT. I’m currently working on new digital ways to do this globally.

Recovering from this latest challenge, I had a great deal of time to reflect. I had already learned that Life is the most precious gift we each have – and there for the LIVING, not simply for the ride. When people ask me what scares me most, perhaps after I come off stage from giving a keynote on women’s enterprise or leadership in a global conference, or as someone did as I alighted from a micro helicopter after the most amazing flight out over the Southern Ocean over the 12 Apostles in South Australia, I say ‘If it doesn’t kill me, then nothing!’

So I thought I would share some Inspirational Quotes that are either my own and have helped many others already like the one above or those that inspire me like the one below, and I hope you find something you like well enough to share to help others….

This was me just having touched down after my flight over the Southern Ocean..and just look at some of the views from up there, the video footage is spectacular … next time,  I’ll share something amazing that happened in South Africa earlier this year…

Please feel free to comment and share…

Gratitude and appreciation to Athena Network Regional Director, Bernadette Sarginson for organising this #Wonderful opportunity to meet and chat with some #Amazing women entrepreneurs at the launch. You’ll see some in these photographs from their book signings. You can find out more here about the Athena Network, Athena Network Nottingham City and Athena Network Nottingham West Bridgford on the links below.

Not only is The Athena Network is THE LEADING INTERNATIONAL NETWORKING, TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT BUSINESS CLUB FOR FEMALE EXECUTIVES AND ENTREPRENEURS but it’s a brilliant environment in which to develop your entrepreneurial skills and do business over lunch in a fun atmosphere – hardly like work at all!

At my book launch, the story of the founding of my first ‘serious’ business at age 18 that took me a year of determination to get off the ground, and then experienced the whole lifecycle of a business from start up to nearly close down in just 4 days, went down well – the atmosphere was electric with anticipation. We heaved a few sighs and had a few laughs over this. Isn’t hindsight a Wonderful thing? They all agreed I should include this little story in my next book, just started and due out early 2015, about my serial entrepreneur journey. Oh, and I promise to write some ebooks as well.

One revelation is that ‘Woman Power: Strategies for Female Leaders’ is a ‘MUST READ’ for EVERY woman. VFM?  I’d say so, the wisdom, tips, advice and strategies of 16 women coaches, entrepreneurs, consultants and leaders – for the price of one!  And the feedback from women who have read the book has been fantastic! Unsurprising then that ‘Woman Power: Strategies for Female Leaders’ is proving very popular with women entrepreneurs. A second revelation is that the book is a ‘MUST READ’ for men, who want to understand the thinking and strategies of female leaders.

‘Woman Power: Strategies for Female Leaders’ is also proving popular material for Book Clubs, with Karen Oehme’s Vital Chapters Women’s Book Club the very first to snap up a mass purchase and invite me to speak face to face, share insights, answer questions and book-sign at their 18th November Meeting.  You can book here http://bit.ly/1qP6jBh

I am now in talks with the lovely and talented Julia Damassa, a successful BBC Dragons’ Den entrepreneur and Business Winner on Sky’s The Angel, about a trade mission to New York early 2015. I’ve been invited to share my entrepreneurial expertise getting involved with a new Free School for disadvantaged pupils; have donated my first book to a school library in my mission to help more girls discover and develop their leadership qualities; several other speaking/book signings are lining up, I’m in discussions for New Zealand tour and so much more….

I would love if everyone who buys a copy of ‘Woman Power: Strategies for Female Leaders’ would buy one extra copy to donate to a school, college, university, library, women’s organisation, in fact anywhere that books are loaned out or read. My mission is to ’Mentor and Motivate a Million’. What will you do to help me?

So I am still thanking everyone who is part of this exciting journey…and for reading this blog and that includes you! Thank You. Please feel free to follow and share..

RIP OFF YOUR NECKTIE AND DANCE, Leen Zevenbergen, Reviewed by Valerie Dwyer – Serial Entrepreneur, Coach, Mentor, Inspirational Speaker, founder of My Wonderful Life Coach™, Strategic Insight, Everything is Possible™, and other enterprises. http://www.mywonderfullifecoach.co.uk

August 18, 2011

 Hop on now. Discover the Chaordic Alternative. Next stop Culture Change Central!

 “Revitalise your business with innovation and entrepreneurship”, sets the scene so you know what to expect, only you don’t because you’re in for surprises. Leen begins with a “passionate plea for authenticity in entrepreneurship” and goes on to decry ‘loincloth’ projects-somewhat worse than sticking plaster. I give this book 5 ***** and say buy it now! 

Thought leader Leen Zevenbergen  aims to get everyone out of their straight jackets, to think out of the box, and a high five from me for referring to ‘vision’ in his first sentence, since this is the birth of business transformation. (As a Vision Facilitator am I biased? Of course yes! Vision changes everything!) And it all begins with Leadership. How can a leader inspire others if they are totally uninspiring, this is part of the problem for which Leen offers solutions.

Is yours a ‘Conscious Company’ that demonstrates strategic keenness, energises people and stimulates creative thinking and inspiration. Yes? Well then, you are amongst the minority, the pack leaders. Say No? Better find out what this is about then before it’s too late to change! 

When business is going well, who sees trouble coming or even thinks about it? Learn how to avoid complacency now with the ‘Nightmare Competitor’. “Paradoxically”, Leen tells us, “from time to time a good nightmare guarantees in the long run a better night’s rest”. Don’t ask, but read the book. From the end of the second chapter I already knew there are too many important lessons here to cover

Businesses are living through a time of extreme control and regulation (straight jackets). Life is easier by fitting people, staff, customers, into little boxes. Anxiety rules! This spells death for innovation and entrepreneurship. Yes, authentic leadership and transparency are the new kids on the block. Build a new (I say ‘shared’) corporate vision = revitalise your business. We’re reminded that everyone has creativity, how much of it people display outside of the workplace and how easy it is to turn it on. Welcome to the company where people achieve what’s necessary and also have fun!

Leen thinks we’re guilty of murdering the ‘thrill’ of business and proceeds to show us how to put it back. Having persevered past chapter one I walked into a library of desirable futures packed with stimulating ideas for better business backed up by great examples. Leen and I share some common ground in business experiences: especially in how people should be treated; the value of their collective role in turning their company around; that slash and burn can turn business survival into terminal and turnaround needs some investment, however small, in processes like these.

As I’ve experienced first hand when facilitating my SI White Table Visioning Process™, given permission and opportunity to work together as a team, group or company to create a shared vision for the organisation, people bring about positive transformation.  ‘Shared vision’ just two little words that in practise are hard to achieve yet offers major impact.

Leen describes what true creativity looks like, from both an entrepreneur’s and a manager’s perspective and how smaller companies have the market edge, how to create ‘flow’ and when “doing nothing” is right for everyone. Get rid of the ‘guilt trip’, read for yourself what this is all about and learn something invaluable today.  Smile if you must then understand the question – What is ’idiotic’? Something brilliant!
