Hello!

I am Briony

If you are anything like I was for a large part of my career, you probably have a good handle on your career... or you did until you started going through a transition. 

 

Maybe that transition was of your own doing, maybe it was imposed on you.

 

All I know is that if you are reading this know you are probably feeling :

  • stuck,

  • scared to speak up,

  • unseen,

  • unheard,

  • passed over for positions you thought you were in line for,

  • afraid to try,

  • afraid to fail,

  • like your confidence got up and left

  • like you are dropping balls

  • angry, vulnerable, confused, isolated,

  • unsure of what steps to take next.

And I know this because when I started looking around for a coach, this is exactly how I felt too.

My career started out in 1998 in the mining industry in South Africa - completely unintentionally! For a large part of my career, I thought I had a good handle on what I was doing and where I was going. But to be honest, most of what I did was done because I was in automatic mode - I just had my head down being busy.

 

At some point, I started questioning where I was and what I was doing, and I started waking up, being curious, and reflecting on what I wanted my career to be like, and to mean to me.

 

I realised I needed a change, and took a leap into the unknown.

"In every transition expect to feel a lot of excitement, then fear, then failure and self-doubt as you step further and further outside your comfort zone.

 

But as you develop your curiosity and resilience, along comes growth, learning and confidence... and this cycle repeats with every new transition!" 

Since 2017 I’ve coached mission-driven STEM professionals, like you, to show up confidently in the world by helping my clients identify their real value and articulate it in a way that positions them to be impactful in their careers, their communities, and the world at large.

What I want you to know...

 
  • You don’t have to know what you want to be - it will probably change over time anyway so learn from every experience along the way, and dabble, with intention.

  • You can change your mind at any time. 

  • You are never too old to learn something new, change careers or figure out who you really are.

I wish I had known earlier in my career to...

 

... treasure every experience, every person, every encounter.

 

Every element of your past leads you to where you are right now, but it does not have to direct where you go in the future.

Read about what I value and how these values guide my work.

 

My investment in myself is an investment in you too!

 

In the last few years, I have invested heavily in my personal and professional development. One of my greatest strengths is my desire to learn - and in doing so I have a desire to share what I learn too.

 

One of the key lessons in my life has been that in knowing my strengths and where I need support, I have become a better version of myself. And by letting go of a lot of that ego, I have been able to then you can move the metaphorical mountain that was standing in the way of managing my career like a business.

 

I am certain that...

... if you are a self-starter, ambitious, and passionate about the business of being you - the time will come when you will feel a yearning growing inside you to make the move - towards living an intentional and purposeful life and managing your career like a business. When that comes, I look forward to working with you as your coach.
