Country Director
Gillian Coutts

Jeg kom til at tænke på uddannelse for et årti siden efter en alvorlig børste med kræft efter fødslen af min søn James. Efter at have tilbragt 20 år som leder og forandringsagent i salgs- og driftsfunktionerne i store virksomheder og konstant stræber efter den undvigende perfektion på arbejde og hjemme, fandt jeg mig selv tiltrukket af en ny karriere og en ny måde at være på.

Som seniorfacilitator, landedirektør og partner i Potential Project Australia kan jeg trække på alle mine forskellige færdigheder (herunder kvalifikationer i økonomi, rådgivning/præstations-psykologi og operationsforskning/statistik) og rige arbejds- og livserfaringer og "lege" hver dag med nogle fantastiske kunder og kolleger fra hele verden.

En af mine største glæder er at hjælpe ledere og teams med at låse op for potentielle og kraftfulde forandringer – startende med sindet.

Ud over at facilitere mindset- og ledelsesprogrammer har jeg været beæret over at dele, hvad vi gør som medforfatter til One Second Ahead – Enhance Your Performance at Work With Mindfulness og via den HBR-udgivne bog The Mind of the Leader – How to Lead Yourself, Your People and Your Organisation for Extraordinary Results, hvor jeg bidrog som strategisk rådgiver og forsker.

Du kan også ofte finde mig på scenen (eller i nyere tid på Zoom konferencer) taler om, hvordan sind uddannelse kan bringe større ro, effektivitet, modstandsdygtighed og endda lykke til dit arbejde og liv. Nogle af mine "pinch me" øjeblikke har været at præsentere på Lykke og dens årsager, The Workplace Wellbeing Festival og The World Leading Schools Association Konference i Prag.

Jeg nyder også at sidde på en række brædder, og i min fritid kan du finde mig synge og spille bas i vores band The Vagus Nerve, gå min hund gennem gaderne i Sydney og hænge ud med familien.
