Today I woke up to find out by my publisher that Leavers To Leaders is officially #amazon no #1 best seller in UK 🇬🇧, USA 🇺🇸, AUSTRALIA 🇦🇺 & CANADA 🇨🇦. I am grateful to all those who have supported me, humbled by those who trusted me.🙏🏾
I would not have got that far if I hadn’t become comfortable being uncomfortable. Career Transition is a Journey, when you stop, that’s the end.
Leavers To Leaders is for those who are ready to reinvent themselves due to change in the workplace or looking to start a new career as a leader.

The world has changed, in the last ten years we have seen a shift in the work place. We see checkouts at the shops being automated, we have cars ready to be driverless, we have cashiers being replaced by machines, we have TV on demand and online accounting software. Five years ago the world was in a different place. The digital transformation is shaping our way of lives from banking to retail, to entertainment, to food services. Virtually every company in every industry is shifting how they engage with customers and the markets. Perhaps the three major disruptors that we can all relate to would be Uber, Airbnb and Deliveroo. Then, along came Google Chrome, and several incredible products and services have been invented. People leave an old job behind and embark on second careers for a host of reasons. Other times, starting over isn’t by choice.
I did a full online book launch of Leavers To Leaders
yesterday on my FB, I now officially have 25 years to help people who are frustrated, undervalued & overlooked in the workplace during or after transition. In the next few weeks I will be announcing the partnership I have forged around L2L so that we can support future leaders at each stage of their lifecycle.
“This book offers positive advice about what to expect and how to deal with it. I commend it to everybody who is making their transition run and knows they need a compass and a map.”

Yes, your old job may have been your first field but it doesn’t have to be your last. Gone are the days where you had 1job for life. You studied, or you may have gotten your last position as a result of years of hard work. But you can have more than one dream. And it does not even have to be related to your previous one, specially in a digital world. Learn to reinvent yourself.

For many, transitioning into the new year comes with resolutions. They’re easy to make, but hard to stick with.
Resolutions may include losing weight, trying to save more money, better sleep, exercising and getting up early.
However, you may also feel uncomfortable with your present situation at work, may be undervalued or overlooked. If so, I urge a new year’s resolution.
Take ownership of your career!
Transition is never easy, i know i have been there so many times in my life but here are a few tips:
1. Surround yourself with people who will support you.
2. Build your portfolio of network, not just linkedin but also offline. Study shows that most people find their next job within their network, from those who already know, like & trust them.
3. Plan a career that fits with your passion and gives you the work life balance.
