Real Life Story – Michelle McFadyen

Michelle is a down-to-earth leader, who has a real passion for helping people to believe in themselves and to help them see their strengths. You can see this as tears form in her eyes when I ask her to leave us with a final thought.

This final tip she left us with was so powerful, that I asked her to say it again – just to make sure we all got the message.

Please take an hour to listen to this story of an amazing woman, who not only professionally, but personally is leading her best life.

Real Life Story – Nikki Beaumont

In this real-life interview with the Founder and CEO of Beaumont people, Nikki Beaumont, we chat about how she has grown her organisation and her leadership focus.

With over 30 years in recruitment, Nikki Beaumont is passionate about Meaningful Work, and always putting people first. These values cascade down through her organisation and her senior leadership team leads by example.

She’s also an ideas woman, and is always looking for new ideas and constant improvement in all they do. This has led to her leading the charge on the 4 day work week, and being recognised at Australia’s 2nd Best place to work, in the Australian Financial Review.

Nikki is also a big believer in taking action and giving ideas a go. She talks about failure and how comfortable she is with it. 

Take some time to listen as Her Leadership Journey Founder Emma Rhoades chats with Nikki about this and more.
