THE FOCUS OF MY WORK
My name is Mandy Muckalt and the focus of my work in the world right now is supporting and guiding female leaders to awaken into their full authentic expression and transition into the post conventional phase of their leadership with as much ease and grace as possible.
From there the potentials and possibilities for powerful personal and collective change are infinite.
MY STORY OF CHANGE
We all have a Story Of Change…a sequence of events and experiences, inner and outer, which fundamentally reshape our life and can reveal our purpose here in the world if we pay close attention. I invite you to read my full story in a blog I wrote HERE so that you can get to know me and perhaps be inspired to reflect on your own life journey and where it is leading you.
The nutshell version of my Story involves three phases of awakening in my adult life over a twenty year period of time, each phase being an expression of the interaction between the stages of adult development, the life cycle of a professional woman, and the call of Soul.
Phase 1 arrived in my early thirties when I began to shift from a mode of my identity being defined by the expectations of my environment, to a mode of exploring who I was without all the external imposition. After four years of dancing in the space between these two modes, I finally accepted and embraced the reality that there was no longer a match between myself and my place of work, and it was time to break free! This was a very big deal for me at the time. What I didn’t know was that the journey had only just begun!
Fast forward to my early forties and phase 2 began to build, culminating in the perfect storm of inner and outer events, with the accompanying crisis and crash. Phase 2 was not the liberating transition of phase 1! It was tough. But through it I learned to accept and love myself, listen to my inner voice, and understand who I am and what truly fulfils me at a much deeper level.
Phase 3 is happening right now as I enter my 50s. A crisis and crash wasn’t needed this time as I’m much better at listening to my inner world! I suspect phase 3 is about alignment, intuition, expression, heart-centred business, flow, collaboration, community, spaciousness, beauty, simplicity and joy… and sharing my accumulated wisdom.
My credentials span many worlds.
The worlds of coaching and mentoring (business, professional, personal, soul), somatic embodied presence (that means getting into your body and out of your head), workshops for groups, boards and teams in business, mindful living and conscious breathing, behavioural skills and transitions training. All of these are really about transformation and have set me up nicely to support and guide professionals and teams in creating and navigating change from a strong foundation and able to tap into inspired thinking with ease.
The worlds of accountancy, corporate finance, sales and consulting. These laid a strong foundation for my understanding of business and the corporate environment and gave me rich insight into what it’s like being a woman in patriarchal systems. So if you are immersed in organisational land rest assured I get it.
The worlds of education and teaching maths to 11-18 year olds. This was my first job post university and also my first voyage into truly understanding the huge impact of mind-sets on results (I heard “I can’t do maths miss” so many times). I was inspired to begin my work of shifting “I can’t” to “I can”. This work of shifting peoples’ and teams’ thinking and perceptions continues today.
The worlds of poetry, creative writing, energy and the bigger picture. These reflect my interest in the imagination, the expansive nature of reality and my lifelong journey of getting to know the love and divine spark within me and within the heart of every single one of us. This has increasing relevance in the new paradigm workplace emerging today.
All of these worlds inform my approach and allow me to draw on a wide range of pioneering tools involving awareness, intention, attention, permission, inspired action, mind-set alignment, whole body intelligence, energy management and re-organisation, conscious breathing and the simple power of choice as I meet clients where they are and support their unique transformation and change making journey.
