IMAGINE – DREAM BIG
However, not all books are created equally. Not all books will spark your imagination and not all books will get you or keep you in the White-Ball-of-Energy. The Success Blueprint however, is a book that will do both. Co-Authored with Brian Tracy (Best-Selling Author, International Speaker and Entrepreneur) & 40 extraordinary experts from around the world, The Success Blueprint will launch you into the White-Ball-of-Energy and spark your imagination.
Katie-Jeyn’s chapter in The Success Blueprint, which won the Editor’s Choice Award, describes Katie-Jeyn’s career journey from when she ACCELERATED her career from the front desk of a mine to being an AWARD-WINNING EXECUTIVE in record time… which included when Katie-Jeyn was working as a Human Resources Advisor, where she was just a little ‘number’ at Rio Tinto, but had the audacity to make the DECISION that she was going to CREATE an Employer-of-Choice! A big, hairy, audacious vision and one that she had no idea how she would create and if, in fact, it would actually unfold.
That DECISION was made by Katie-Jeyn when she was at the Intravenous Lounge in Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital (in Perth, Western Australia). Katie-Jeyn was having what would be her last infusion of REMICADE, a drug used to treat her serious case of Crohn’s disease, which at its peak had resulted in 9 surgeries in 11 months.
Sitting quietly with amongst the seriously ill cancer patients, as the infusion went in, Katie-Jeyn reminisced on the previous 15 months of her work. Feeling sad, frustrated and angry about some of the decisions that had been made by the HR leaders above her.
As tears then poured down her face, she realised,that instead of pointing the finger at those HR leaders above her, it was time for her to STOP waiting for her boss to become the leader she wants them to be! And, instead it was up to her to BECOME THE LEADER THAT SHE WANTED HER BOSS TO BE!! It was time to step it up, overcome her fear of not being good enough and have the courage to lead and stand up for what she believed was right and best for the greater good.
And, that is when she used her IMAGINATION to create a new future and as a result her VISION to create an Employer-of-Choice was born. She decided she wanted to create a workplace where employees loved going to work, all whilst creating outstanding business outcomes.
The day that Katie-Jeyn made the DECISION to create an Employer-of-Choice was Friday, 22 December 2006.
