Simone Lawrence: Create Goals to Achieve Success

For this event, we welcomed leadership coach and people developer, Simone Lawrence, leading with an interactive evening of defining what success could look like for you in 2018.

Simone is passionate about helping female leaders achieve more greatness in their professional and personal playgrounds.

In this event, we created our own set of guiding principles which we can use to navigate our way through 2018, making it a year of growth and optimal performance so we can achieve what’s important to us.

Take home learnings: 

  • Reduce the noise around you
  • Be decisive.
  • Remove the word ‘try’ from your life… you WILL!
  • Say no to what isn’t important, and yes to what is
  • Map out what are you DOING vs how are you BEING – are you taking time out for yourself? Or are you a big ol' procrastinator?
  • Are you working in your comfort zone, or are you too stretched?
  • Replace the word ‘but’ with ‘and’
  • Ask for help, and utilise your support network. Try not to take on too much
  • Tell people about your goals. It will give them colour and hold you accountable
  • Most importantly (and as Calvin Harris suggests) remember; YOU are the one thing in your way...
