Passion and High Performance

Passion is a free flow of natural energy that leads us to fulfilment of our dreams, desires and purpose in life.

When we do anything with passion, we express every part of who we are. When we feel passion, it simply means we have connected with an aspect of our purpose and aligned our being in that moment with something deep-seated and fundamental – It serves us as guidance.

Passion is one of the Master Keys to high performance and works as a performance activator.

If people are not allowed to express themselves fully; if passionate expression of ideas, thoughts and feelings is not allowed, they are in fact being asked to leave part of themselves at home. How they can be fully engaged and performing at their best? It’s simply impossible.

Companies that are genuine when they say that they want to unleash their peoples’ full potential and tap into unused talents, skills, experience and discretionary energy, have to create environments that welcome authenticity.

Companies with high levels of organisational consciousness know that. Their leaders have crafted the mastery of creating a real sense of community where people can again be people –  human beings with their passions, desires, pains and fears. This new mastery of harnessing highly conscious, positive inclusiveness is the evolving competence of the future. Creating such environments is the ‘task’ all conscious leaders are being called to undertake.

What does it mean for you as a leader?

  1. Check it for yourself. When are you performing at your best; when you feel passionate about something or otherwise?
  2. When you notice passion, follow it, let it flow. It is a moment where people open up to their fullness, their whole potential – and use it.
  3. Create a workplace where passion and full expression of self is welcome.

Let Me Introduce…

It’s been a long time since the inspiring thought to start my own business consultancy first popped into my head. I’d been playing with the idea for a while, feeling the pleasing excitement of the “one day…’ and “what if…” day-dreaming game.

Then finally, I realised it was time to take the idea seriously and acknowledge that it is my deep desire to provide a service that I believe in and based on values that define who I am. It was time to become truthful to myself and finally honour and fully own my own desires.

I am here to partner with corporate leaders who see the need to change the way we run our companies. I am here for leaders who are brave and bold enough to get real, challenge the conforming, complacent status quo and transform their businesses into inspired, purpose driven organisations. That is the way we can collectively elevate the quality of life for all of us and make our experience as human beings more joyous, rewarding and fulfilling.

It’s time to get real, back to who we really are and what are we here for.

So, I made a decision to found a Change and Transformation consultancy. But how should I name it? I wanted a name that feels good; is smart; speaks clearly the true nature of the business and those involved. I wanted the name that was ‘the Right One’.

For months I was writing notes, capturing ideas, making mind maps, scribbling on papers. But nothing felt right. Nothing seemed to be the One. And then one day while I was in New Zealand, driving from Auckland to Rotorua…

I was marvelling at an amazing, huge orange full moon and the magical darkness all around; Enjoying silence in my car, feeling peaceful and connected with the whole Universe and the millions of stars above me. Out of nowhere, the name just came. Just like that. Clearly and strongly. And in that moment, I knew that it was the One! After months of trying to find it, the name had found me.

So… let me introduce – Barefoot Leadership.

An inspired vision has become something very real and unique. This is truly different…
