Mapping your journey to success


mapping success

This session explores your ability as a leader to navigate change, challenge, and crisis by understanding your own life journey and your need for a map to guide you when you feel lost.

  • What does it mean to reach a level of clarity about ourselves and our purpose?
  • How do we turn our journey into values and actions that guide and define us?

In times of disruption, leaders need to draw on their personal skills and self-mastery to light the way forward for others.

There are 3 LEVELS of personal or professional development:

  1. You learn the BASIC SKILLS or techniques necessary for the task or situation
  2. You gain a DEEPER UNDERSTANDING of how and why those skills or techniques work
  3. You develop a GROWING AWARENESS of yourself and how your personal qualities influence the situation (for better or worse)

In this webinar we will discuss why it is important:

  • to understand your own life journey and the barriers and conflicts you’ve experience
  • to better understand others and their experiences of challenge and conflict 
  • to lead in turbulent times by understanding and articulating your own map


Jane Gunn, International Mediator, Author, and Speaker

Jane Gunn

Jane Gunn, is an expert in the field of conflict resolution, a trained mediator and facilitator, known to her clients as “The Barefoot Mediator”. She is the Chair of the Board of Management of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) and is a former director and board member of the Civil Mediation Council of England and Wales (CMC).

Author of 2 popular books “How To Beat Bedlam In The Boardroom And Boredom In The Bedroom” and “The Authority Guide To Conflict Resolution”, she has spoken at the United Nations, The White House and the European Commission.

As the world in which we live becomes increasingly focused on the global unrest created by the rise of a pandemic virus, racial inequality, terrorism, climate change, financial instability and more, people everywhere are dealing with both the external and internal sense of conflict, constant fear and uncertainty this is creating, Jane is asking:

  • what can we, as individuals, do to understand and transform this conflict?
  • are we being woken up to a deeper meaning and message?
  • how do we find harmony and balance in a crazy world?

Jane helps people in all walks of life to become ReSolutionaries. Teaching them the basic skills of mediation, she enables people to deal with difference and diversity in ways that are non-adversarial and solution focused.

Her mission is to create a tribe of barefoot mediators equipped to lead and inspire others in times of change, challenge and crisis. She has a powerful message supported by practical tools and techniques that applies to organizations of all sizes across all sectors.

The stakes couldn’t be higher for businesses right now. Critical decisions must be made each day as to how businesses are going to survive and thrive in the weeks and months ahead. And yet the ability for many leaders and managers to think and decide clearly may be challenged by:

  • disagreements with colleagues
  • tensions with family members
  • internal conflict created by the times we are living in

Jane has worked with organisations large and small including Cable & Wireless, The NHS, BAA, Bacardi- Martini, McLaren Racing, The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, ACCA and many more.
