Executive Coach - Lindy Cozens

 

What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?

If you don’t try, you will always wonder – what if?!

 

Which book/film/event changed your life?

Event:  Growing up all over the world made me far more culturally aware and gave me a clear understanding of our differences which is goodness – by product is I have wonderful friends and colleagues everywhere

Book:  Loads really – Atlas Shrugged – Ayn Rand

Film:  Baby Boom and Working Girl

 

Give one characteristic that you feel every leader should have?

Empathy:  Being able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and really feeling what they are going through.

 

What is the biggest risk you’ve ever taken?

Throwing myself in the deep end with a job in order to support my boys, not really knowing if I would be successful – It was very difficult at times. I was successful and it was the best decision.

 

What is the most meaningful part of your job?

Easy:  When people say thank you for getting me through that. Whatever “that” was.
