What does it mean to be an all-in leader? And how can we be all-in, creating positive impact and influence, while also looking after ourselves, those we lead, and those we serve?

In last week’s interview (#093) I talked to Frances Beecher, CEO of Llamau, Wales’ leading young people and women’s homeless charity. Frances can’t NOT care and it’s a conversation about creating influence and impact, in a sector where leaders can often feel powerless.

Where are you feeling powerless to create change right now?

Looking back on our conversation, this week I consider what we can learn from Frances about creating and owning our influence, even where the formal power and responsibility to create change lies elsewhere.

If you’re a woman who wants to make more impact through your mission, this week’s Insights episode is for you.


Sue is on a mission to STOP women playing small so that they can create the legacy they want to leave in the world.  With over 30 years coaching and leadership experience, Sue loves nothing more than disrupting the unhelpful thinking that often holds women back, so that they can think, dream and BE bigger in leading the change they want to see.  Coaching internationally, Sue’s clients are primarily world-changing women who want to lead with confidence, increase their impact and live a life that matters.
