"I had the pleasure of attending a workshop led by Victoria and Celine yesterday, all about getting 'unstuck', whether that be professionally or personally. It was a great session, with collaborative exercises on mindset and positive thinking, and I came out of it with some clear actions to take over the coming weeks to move myself forward."
Leadership isn’t just about the position you hold professionally - it’s about how you show up across your life. A rising star is 'a person who is likely to be successful'. And these are some of the things Rising Star Leadership represents. We support our clients to be successful in whatever it is that they set out to do — and they take the lead in making that happen.
Victoria and Celine met in London in 2008 when they worked on a project at Microsoft examining employee happiness at work — a topic they both felt strongly about. Through that work, they realised that happiness and fulfilment isn't just about what you're doing professionally; it's about everything in your life being in balance. Although their careers took them on to other countries and companies, they both remained focused on the human side of the professional environment, and trained independently as executive coaches. In 2020 they realised there was so much more they wanted to do to help people take the lead in their professional lives, and so Rising Star Leadership was created.
We have over 30 years’ combined experience working in the tech space for multinational corporations like Microsoft, Google, eBay and Adobe. Between us we’ve held roles in operations, sales, project management, client management, team leadership, sales leadership and people management. We understand business, and we understand Tech - it’s fast-paced and competitive. Team and company reorganisation is constant. Ambiguity equals normality. Huge corporations become difficult to navigate and require a certain tenacity and style. And amidst all of this, there is an intense pressure to perform. Where does that leave you?
At Rising Star Leadership, we help professionals at all levels of leadership to navigate their challenges, find balance, increase fulfilment, and uplevel as a leader. Whether you're a C-Level in need of a sparring partner, a manager who feels overwhelmed, a start-up founder who needs guidance, or you're gearing up for a move into your first leadership position, we're here for you.
