Every time I work with the SpeakersHub team, I'm blown away by the quality of people on their roster and the access they have to a who's-who of innovative, provocative and leading edge thinkers and leaders. If you want to build knowledge and get insight from people who are at the very top of the latest thinking and leaders in their field then Sarah and the team are the people to talk to.
Finding new ways to help coaching clients survive and thrive during rapid change triggered a shift to network thinking and the creation of The Personal Boardroom. Amanda brings practical insights about people’s behaviour in organisational settings.
What is The Personal Boardroom?
The Personal Boardroom is a fresh, deliberate and structured way to think about your network. It’s a group of people who you have meaningful conversations with, about work, job, team, career and everything in between.
Amanda explains that your Personal Boardroom should:
- Provide essential resources for your effectiveness.
- Extend your reach beyond the obvious people to others who work in teams, businesses or industries that are different from yours, who can spark innovation.
- Embrace diversity of thought, because it includes people from different backgrounds and social worlds who see the world differently from you.
- Adapt and evolve, as you do in your career.
Amanda underscores the value of external connections especially in today’s challenging corporate landscape. Particularly how to seek inspiration from the outside world and make meaningful contributions to it. Her perspective also stems from living in a remote location, where she has learned to leverage virtual opportunities to build connections. At the same time Amanda addresses limitations that need to be overcome in the digital realm, like how do you build trust?
Amanda lives in a remote spot in the west of Ireland so virtual working has become second nature.
