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 this week

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

Sue’s been helping business owners to find their inner super hero (no small ask at Breakfast time!) and Sherry’s been checking out where her LinkedIn clients are hiding their lights under bushels!  (01.25 – 08.44)

  • How have you been challenged?

This week we chew over an issue commonly faced by senior leaders in organisations, entrepreneurs and small business owners alike…. isolation and loneliness in leadership.  There’s no doubt that leadership can be lonely, and it’s important to have strategies in place to keep you on track, to help you connect & communicate with those around you (and yourself!), and to ensure you stay fully aligned with your purpose – the big Why that led you to this leadership opportunity.  We explore some of those strategies and share our own experience of what we’ve learned so far in our own leadership journeys.  (08.45 – 28.50)

  • So where are you building momentum right now

Momentum is critical in getting past the Tipping Point! Sue’s been grasping opportunities with both hands, not just speaking but also accepting an invitation to talk about Team Building on BBC radio.  Sherry gets really honest about an area that’s not gathering momentum….. yet, which prompts a quick discussion on the importance of chunk size in getting things going!  (28.55 – 35.05)

  • How have you been inspired this week?

Sue introduces us to her six year old neighbour who knows how to ask for what he wants – with a clarity that can be very helpful to us in business. Sherry’s been inspired and deeply moved by the work of Helen Bennett, who helps teenagers to build self confidence and self esteem through creating the opportunity for them to have dinner and discussion with local business leaders. Inspirational! (35.10 – 40.30)

  • What else or what next?

Sue notices that our discussion has prompted her to give some thought to how she adds even more ‘wow’ to her work with clients, and Sherry is looking forward to achieving the right level of balance between family and business during the holidays. (40.32 – 42.50)
