Is it you, or the job?

Are you just pretending to be happy in your role?

Jem Fuller has moved from barefoot traveller wandering around Central and South East Aisa to a suit and tie corporate leader of a $100 million division of a multi‑national organisation.
He now helps others to find fulfillment through mindful and authentic leadership and helping them to create more positive and vibrant work cultures.

Hear about Jem’s mid-life crisis or, as he now calls it, his ‘opportunity’ in his early 40’s. Jem had a successful 8‑year career in the travel industry. He was in a senior leadership role, flew around the world first class, and was being very well paid.

But, he realised that – with what most people would consider a very successful career - he was pretending to be happy.

It was time for a change.
