Along with her qualifications and experience as a Coach; Stevie is a highly successful Advertising & Marketing Communications Strategist with over 15 years’ experience having begun her career at some of the world's most well known advertising agencies; such as Saatchi & Saatchi, and McCann Erickson; and on some of the world's most famous brands; including Coca-Cola, McDonald's, L'Oréal, Samsung, and Visa. She has been integral to a magnitude of brand and product launches in the UK, Europe, Australia and South Pacific. Stevie has also served on Management Teams, and been integral to business planning, development, and operational requirements. She is a Registered Advisor with the Business Advisors Network.
After 15 years in the corporate arena, Stevie is well versed on the pressures that come with managing, growing, and marketing a business. Ongoing, unmanaged pressures can result in negative emotions that cause stress, anxiety, and even depression, leading you to feel unhappy, become less productive, and ultimately reduce your creativity.
Research by American Psychologist Barbara L. Fredrickson of the University of Michigan posits that the experience of positive emotions broadens a person’s ‘thought – action’ repertoire, which goes on to build their long-term physical, intellectual, social, and psychological resources. So, it makes sense that the happier you are; the more productive you can be! Creativity also requires a wide and varied thought-action repertoire. So, the more positive the emotions your brain experiences; the broader the capacity of your mind to be creative too! And we all know that both productivity and creativity are essential qualities for a business leader.
The way we see it at The Change Starter is...
Productive = Creative = Results!
- Team Performing
- Talent Retained
- Clients Ecstatic
