Sue Revell and Sherry Bevan talk about being on the tipping point of success. We share what drives us, what inspires us, our learnings and challenges in our work as leadership coaches.

Why ‘On The Tipping Point’? Because we regularly work with clients who tell us that they are ‘so close’, they can feel or smell success – or maybe even touch it. We’ve been there too! The more we thought about it, the more we realised there is a tipping point in every big decision and every big leap. So let’s find out more about what it takes to go beyond!

In each episode we pose some questions that take us through the four big steps of approaching and going beyond the tipping point. They are real questions for us as we grow our businesses, and we hope you will find they are real questions for you too. Do play along as you listen!

In the show

  • Where or how have you felt most alive this week?

Sue reflects on the Board Away Day she attended on the day of recording – a space not only to plan as a board but also to consider the leadership strengths & skills that each individual board member brings and how each contribution can be used collaboratively to the benefit of staff, clients and partners. 

Sherry has been practising being in flow (check out Episode 7 for more info) and has been dancing! She shares her experience of trying something new, do listen carefully amongst the laughter for her strategy for getting started. Hope that calf is healing, Sherry! (01.42 – 06.35)

  • How have you been challenged?

This week we consider how we deal with challenging circumstances - the challenge of Resilience.  How do we build our resilience muscles to help us deal with a world of complexity and change?  We explore some of the different theories that prevail about what resilience is, in life and in leadership, and share our experience of dealing with challenge, change and complexity in a more resourceful and resilient way.

We consider some of the factors that influence our response to challenge, and the importance of knowing how and when to take on response-ability for events within and around us, so that we set ourselves up for resilience rather than recovery in our leadership.  No more lurching! (06.36 – 28.56)

  • So where are you building momentum right now?

As we keep saying, momentum is critical in getting past the Tipping Point! Sue is really enjoying ongoing discussions about potential collaborations next year and is also looking forward to launching a new short coaching programme to help her clients ‘Discover Your Zone of Genius’.

Sherry is getting hugely excited about On The Tipping Point LIVE! which starts at the end of November and is also really enjoying her LinkedIn Challenge which is underway at the time of recording and is already shaping into a really exciting group to work with. (29.00 – 33.48)

  • How have you been inspired this week?

Sue’s being stalked by the subject of ‘Brave Leadership’ (tune in to Episode 7 to hear where the story starts) and shares some words from Emily Sande’s “Read All About It”. Sherry has been massively inspired (and scared!) by one of her clients who is a real action taker – just like Sherry! (33.50 – 38.10)

  • What else or what next?

Sue’s curious about how our discussion on resilience in life spans across to resilience in leadership and asks for feedback from our listeners on the specific challenges of resilience in the work or leadership setting. 

Sherry updates listeners on a response from one of our listeners about Brain Wave Recursive Therapy (described previously, in error, as Hypnotherapy in Episode 5). (38.12 – 41.35)
