Another way to put it...

The V Formation

V Formation 2.jpg

Imagine a solitary bird in the wild. To survive it will need to migrate every winter towards lands rich in food sources. Taking the dangerous and exhausting migration trip every year by itself would result in certain death. Compare this with joining it’s flock and flying in the famous V formation.

When you study the coordination of the V Formation it is pure team work. The energy that is saved, as well as the safety that is felt by all is incomparable to a bird flying by itself.

To look deeper, there is a very high level of coordination between birds flying in the V Formation. Every flap of each bird's wings effects the rest. They constantly signal to each other for changes in the environment, as well as changes in roles.

The flock of birds inherently promote an environment for belonging, safety, and trust. Their performance as a whole is much improved to that of each working on their own.

My story so far...

 

Hi, 

     

 

 

My story starts in the Adelaide Hills as a kid that was mad about sport. A kid known for having a big goofy grin and a need to Get Involved!

After falling ill with Glandular Fever in Senior High School, I recovered through a variety of Naturopathic Treatments. This inspired me to study Natural Medicine where I was able to combine my love for Sport and caring for people to become a Sports Therapy Practitioner and Naturopath. After a few years of clinical work I was fortunate enough to win a Semi-Professional Cricket contract which took me to Cambridge, UK.

A six month trip turned into a ten year stint in Ol' England. I loved it. During that time I went from casual staffer on a shop floor of a little Health Food Store to Regional Manager for an International Cosmetics Company. The steps were gradual, but I learnt a lot about business, high-end customer service, and most importantly - how to build teams with lasting power. No matter how bad the economy was during the Global Financial Crisis I was able to keep talented teams together and proliferate commercial results. 

In 2012, I relocated to Melbourne and after two years I had achieved and learnt everything I could from the corporate world. I followed my passion into teaching and education which is what I continue to pursue now. I serve those that are courageous enough to manage and lead others. My care and attention is 'all in' for those that are ready to walk beside me for a few steps in their journey.

 

Cheers,

Paul
