I support professionals to become more authentic and to develop greater integrity in their leadership style and career choices.

Are you the leader you wish you had?  Do you want to take your leadership development to the next level and become a revolutionary, empathetic leader who inspires, influences and empowers your employees?

 You may find that you don’t have the energy, will, or time for self-reflection and development but regular appointments with a mentor will give you the space and time you need to explore your leadership style and consider where you are in your career.

 No matter what kind of organisation you work for you cannot lead others effectively without taking the time to first understand your own self-leadership. 

 It’s never too late to grow, to become the leader you wish you had, the leader to whom many will say “Because of you, I didn’t give up!”

Dare To Be A Revolutionary Leader receives Five Star Pacific Book Review Seal, which is awarded to books of exceptional merit. 

With this book, Charley Swords earns her place as a thought leader. Her book, Dare to Be a Revolutionary Leader: People Are the Solution-Change Your Leadership Style, stands out from the rest on at least several counts. Unlike many other how-to books on leadership, this one successfully unites theory with practice. The reader is walked through a brief history of leadership approaches then is taken in hand and given step-by-step advice on how to broker outstanding leadership in his or her own sphere”.
