Game-changers | & the a million dreams movement
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams"
Asking the big questions?
The big questions of our lives can sometimes come out of the blues, but often, we slide into them slowly and steadily pretending they don’t exist.
I have asked versions of these questions at different points in my life. My journey to find answers took, multiple drastic job changes, pay cuts, a lot of mistakes, and finally culminated into a complete career change that has led me to become an organisational/career psychologist.
I have now had the joy and privilege of working with a number of professionals from different parts of the world in answering their own big questions.
My journey led me to helping people answer the big questions of career and personal development...
I have since worked with individuals to achieve
high clarity for personal and professional goals
successfully navigating careers with a marginalised identity (race, gender, socio-economic background, disability, personal limitations or a combination of these factors)
successful career transitions
better career opportunities including promotions and better pay, sometimes without leaving current employer
improved communication and interpersonal skills
successful return to work after long breaks
better work-life balance
recovery from burnout
successful outcomes for damaged relationships at work
improved performance at work
Improved personal brand and influence
In the joy of working with my clients, I have learned valuable lessons on what not to do when asking a “big question”. My work marries scientific research and lived experiences. In 2020, we launched a series of online workshops called a million dreams. We were joined by hundreds of people from over 10 countries across the globe, over 3 sessions that were termed as inspiring, uplifting and life-changing for our attendees.
We have since supported some of our a million dreamers into launching their own purpose-filled projects, ventures, personal and career goals. We continue to mentor and support a number of women on their game-changer journeys.
We welcome you to join the game-changers on our learning platform...
Initially, I thought our sessions would be based just around finding my dream job but didn’t realise in order to do that I would have to talk about all aspects of life. I found it interesting to find out more about myself as a person through different exercises.
I also could have never predicted how much and how quickly my life could have changed just from our sessions.
So if you are considering working with Margaret, I would definitely say, take the leap and go to the first session to see if it’s the right thing for you, not just say no because you are nervous or unsure. Margaret made me feel at ease straight away, even if I was still nervous or not always comfortable talking about myself.
There was no pressure to continue either, so whether you are one session in or five sessions in she’s willing to do what’s best for you and asks for your input on what you want to discuss or cover in the sessions. She gives you the tools and advice she thinks is relevant to your situation, but you have to be willing to commit to the sessions. I am very glad I had someone like Margaret to support me through my career journey but also on a more personal level as she is very easy to talk to.
