Welcome to the new look website, just in time to move into 2014. I have re-branded so the old Occitane word of dintrar is being removed and my company is now Jill Saville Associates. My professional FB page is Unlocking Posibilities - what a surprise no one has thought to own that before!
Unfortunately, all previous Blog posts have been lost in the transfer which gives me a great opportunity to create something new.
This year I have had the privilege of working with some great people who are determined to stretch and grow - you know who you are - and I have also had opportunities for growth myself.
I was asked to contribute to Leadership Academies for two successful women's networks in Luxembourg and who would have thought that I would ever go to Guatemala with John Maxwell and be part of the country's first steps at transformation?! I flew there thinking that I was giving them the benefit of my experience and I flew back knowing that I had received far more than I had given!
On that trip, I learned to be flexible enough to suspend the need to know who and where I was training each day as there was some confusion over logistics... the only thing I knew was what to say when I got there (I had been taught the day before!). I also had the opportunity to work through some wonderful young people from the International School in Guatemala City who wanted to be involved in the transformation of their country and acted as interpreters. They were good enough to give me feedback on just how much to say before handing over to them. Fabulous!
Technology has given me the opportunity to go, virtually, to every continent, although Skyping to India was challenging due to the connection. I hope that 2014 will enable me to physically travel more and connect with many more people on their own personal journey - and mine.
Look out for the new leadership development groups starting in February and if you have already attended one please recommend to all your friends:)
Best wishes for a bright future
