Change is daunting for most people and most businesses. It means moving away from something you are really comfortable with and heading in a new direction that has not been tried or tested and has no guarantee of success. Just because it has been successful for other companies does not mean it will work for you.

This poem by David Whyte captures a spirit of change that is so inspiring, strong and powerful and I aspire to help people find that “rose-fired compass, blossoming with direction”

But still, on the ocean, there is
no path

only the needle’s trembling dance

without fear,

though the dance now is fear
and calmness
in one movement

as you look
not only the angry sea
of what you
have denied

near at hand
in the centre
of your body,

the rose-fire
of the compass
with direction.

- David Whyte, bestselling author of  ”The Heart Aroused”

Moving out of the corporate world after so many years I am definitely changing my perspective.

Venturing out into the scary world….yes I admit that it is scary!

I have had the opportunity to work across many departments, across many major programmes and with the most wonderful, talented and passionate people that have contributed significantly to my success and who I will miss terribly.

I have always been given freedom to try new things, to make changes where they were justified and to say things in the way that only Michelle would….this freedom should never be taken for granted and it is something that I am very thankful for.
I have had many bosses over the years who have also contributed significantly to my personal growth and I hope I have passed a little of this on to the people I have worked with over the years.

Goodbyes are always sad and, although my voyage of personal discovery is taking me into unchartered waters, I am so excited about all the hello’s that are in front of me.
