A few weeks ago I was interviewed about how I found the transition from having spent all of my working life in the police service, to becoming an entrepreneur and businessman.
As I always say, "ask the right questions and you get the best answers".
This interview certainly asked some powerful questions that got me thinking much deeper about my journey and the drive behind my new life.
Having spent a third of my adult life in senior leadership positions, I recognise the unique pressures that leaders undergo; how the job or the position can consume you.
Whilst the outside world only see your position, status, relative wealth, and label you as 'successful' very few remember that you are also human, with all the imperfections and pressures of being a human being.
In fact, many senior leaders and business owners feel lonely and disconnected; states that affect their health and relationships., as they certainly did in my life.
I wanted to help others in the same position to reconnect with themselves, to master the art of Inner Leadership to become outstanding in all areas of their lives.
At another level, I also knew I wanted to do something even bigger than my role in the police service. As proud as I was of having served in what I still regard as the best policing service in the world, I wanted to impact upon the wider world and not just my local community.
