Mastering the Magic of Gender Dynamics

It’s no longer a game of hard line selling your services and products, the name of the game is building relationships, growing your following, leading a tribe, the future legacy you want to attract is seeded in every conversation you engage in.

As an International Speaker, Changemaker and Gender Dynamics Expert, Pauline T. Crawford-Omps has 30 years of experience in corporate C-suites in the UK and Asia Pacific. She has led corporate and government projects in UK and Malaysia, bringing leaders and teams into a new paradigm for collaboration and conversation. Experienced PhD in Entreprenology, specialising in Business Behaviour, and acclaimed as #MissMagicalConversations, she has a passion to show men and women how to value their differences and work together to deliver that extra zest that beats the rest!

New to the US, I am fast making an impact spotlighting the fast-changing MIND-Field of business and life success for MEN as they discover that ‘working together’ with WOMEN truly requires a new mindset of trust and honesty. Not easy with the pressure of the #metoo movement and high-profile cases highlighted in the news.

As business and life merge, men and women need to create solutions together through magical conversations. The co-creation of new rules between gender dynamics is not merely a suggestion but an imperative for exponential growth. When an open mind perspective and a high level of heart-logic creates not only expansive results today but a legacy for tomorrow’s generation. Where a little magic in your communication goes a long way to ensuring not only your wealth in deal-making but good health in your whole life!

0052: Natalie Hailey - Hot Content!

Podcast Natalie Hailey.jpeg

I set up Hot Content to help businesses with their blogging and content; I love writing and it seemed there was a real need for quality content for those who wanted to outsource this element of their business. However, as time has gone on, the teacher in me has taken over – I did always dream of being a teacher… and then I had my own children and realised perhaps being in a confined space with more than 20 of them perhaps wasn’t for me!

I now love to teach the principles of content marketing and never tire from helping people go from confused, overwhelmed and frustrated to relieved, in control and energised. I truly believe that with the right help and a patient teacher, anyone can take control of their own online marketing and enjoy the benefits of increased brand awareness, audience engagement and leads.

0049: Omozua Isiramen - Emotional Mastery, Executive and Neuro Leadership Coach

Omozua isiramen - share your story - podcast.jpeg

In Omo’s own words…

While I have over 20 years experience as a working professional myself, five years ago a medically challenging period, illness and surgery left me on bedrest for two months straight. It wasn’t luxurious. It was excruciating. Laying in bed unable to move, I had to examine my life, my childhood, and my mother’s death at the age of 19. Not just what happened to me, but really understanding who I was. I had never before been forced to think, “Who is Omo?”

I fell into a dark dark well and I spent two months crawling back up.

Up to that point, the greener grass on the “other side” had consumed my attention. There were so many boxes I hadn’t ticked off the success list of life. Because of my illness, there were many boxes that could now never be checked.

I started to list all the opportunities I had missed – studying in the United States, writing a book, and the chance to participate in humanitarian work in Afghanistan.

I don’t have that. I don’t have this. I started losing confidence in myself and what I brought to the table. …and couldn’t see the impact I was having.

I was right at the bottom of its well. Change had to happen. It was only when I admitted this to myself that my breakthrough started.

I tackled these POWER questions: If this were the last moment of my life, what could I say, I had done to try to change things in my life? What contribution have I made to the world? What do I want my legacy to be?

My discovery during this journey of change was that, underneath the happy and bold face I showed the world, was pain, shock, anger, and deep regret over how much time I had wasted and lost. I had dwelled way too long in the “if only…, what if…, I should have…” zone.

I realized that courage starts when I create my own success criteria, and it multiplies when I live by it.
