I really enjoyed this deeply insightful and diverse conversation with Eleanor Snare who has the wonderfully affectionate title of Business Witch who focuses on Getting Artists and Writers Organised with mindset coaching, operations advice + marketing expertise.Eleanor's insight, however, crosses every profession and every human being for me.  She shares what vulnerability means to her;  we discuss the power of intuition, non-violent communication, awareness, courage, emotions, leadership and so much more.Eleanor can be contacted via the following means:Email - hello@eleanorsnare.comWebsite - - - described what I do as 'art counselling'. Someone else said it's 'sparkly PRINCE 2'.It's a mixture of coaching, mentoring, consultancy and educational techniques. It's bringing you ideas from years of marketing and communication experience. It's having someone who gives a shit about you, your work and believes creativity is going to be what saves our world.My goal is to help you feel confident and organised so that you can get on with developing and sharing your creative gifts.What holds creative people back is not a lack of Instagram skills, networking nerves, procrastination over blog posts or any of that fiddling nonsense.It's their level of self-belief.We've been encouraged to think creativity isn't 'useful' to the world.Bullshit. It's crucial. It's essential. It's what this is all FOR.So I tend to work with the people I think are going to change the world: artists, writers, makers and creative folk who feel frustrated, unhappy, confused and want someone to support them in making their dreams a reality.I generally work with them one-to-one for about six to twelve weeks, as this gives them the accountability they need as well as ensuring they see the big changes they really want to see.(Although they tend to see changes immediately after the first session, and I do one-off sessions too).Creativity is why we are here. It's what brings vibrancy to life. Otherwise, it's all bank balances and salad.I want to help more creative people get more of their gifts out into the world so we can change it for the better.

Where they build fully engaged teams that enjoy their place of work, know the value they bring and have the desire to exceed all expectations. I help them connect by being inclusive, transparent, inspiring and most of all, Lead through Action.WHY IT WORKS: Quite honestly, I stay out of theory and get into action. I've spent the last 10 years in Leadership roles. I've worked in both the Public and Private sectors as well as with Non-Profits. I've gained a wealth of knowledge when it comes to leading teams and I know how to build empowered teams that WANT to outperform and overdeliver. While my roles have been varied, the common denominator is how I connect with people. The ability to truly connect with my staff, peers, and superiors is what sets me apart. My approach is to deliver real and actionable programs that managers can make their own and start building on their successes quickly.HOW IT WORKS: I have two avenues, consulting or training. For consulting, the first step is to begin your transformation is to schedule a complimentary 30-minute strategy session. From there we decide on what direction works best for you. These strategies can be delivered through workshops, courses, personal coaching or a combination of the three. With regards to training, I provide a variety of options. Those are online self-study, face to face workshops, webinar workshops (great for busy or remote teams) and face to face or remote coaching.

What an awesome conversation this was.For the first time on this podcast, I had a conversation with a serial entrepreneur in Anil Dharni, who has set up multiple tech startups including his latest Sense.  Our conversation covered a range of topics including teamwork, leadership, culture, values, awareness, courage, purpose and much more.  I was particularly impressed, and inspired, by the fact that Sense's purpose is to help humanise the contingent labour market, thus tech enabling humans rather than what tends to happen, especially in big corporate, where tech and process rules humans.Anil can be contacted via the following means:Website - Twitter - Email -   Anil@sensehq.comBio: Anil Dharni is the co-founder and CEO of Sense.
