Anese started our conversations talking about energy and to be honest I didn’t understand what she was talking about. I wasn’t in a good place at the time and I was running fast just to stand still, but a small corner of my brain was obviously still receptive enough to realise that the current way of living my life was probably going to lead to disaster earlier rather than later and was on the look out for indications, proof if you will, that there was a more intelligent and sustainable way of going about life as a business leader. Well there is and Anese knows better than most how to nurture that insight so that it has room to grow and gently, but more quickly than I ever imagined possible, to ease out that old way of thinking. It is about energy and the biggest dividend I have received from the hours that Anese has spent with me is the flow of energy back to me from my workplace, my family and all those with whom I interact. I would not have thought this possible, but it has worked for me. My advice to anyone who is overwhelmed by the pace and complexity of leading and drained of life energy to the point of exhaustion or who is just hurting from the weight of responsibility: talk to Anese. Let her into your life and let her guide you back to yourself. It is a great gift to yourself and one that you will never regret.
