Gemma Sharp - Creator of Lordene Learning
A bit about me
With over 15 years experience in learning, development and leadership roles I have had a successful career based on supporting and growing others. I have worked in the public, charity and private sectors, including working for a mental health charity for many years.
Throughout my life I have encountered many difficulty experiences that tested my own resilience and wellbeing which encouraged me to explore a variety of tools and techniques and resulted in me creating my 5 Pillars of Resilience and Wellbeing (RAW). I now share my knowledge and experience with others through Lordene Learning.
I am passionate about supporting people to be the best they can be with a genuine belief that people need deep roots as a foundation to grow & strong wings to reach their full potential. I approach things from a ‘toolkit’ perspective – one size doesn’t fit all! Through my workshops and coaching I encourage people to try out several different tools to find what makes them 'feel good and function well'.
As well as supporting people on a personal level, throughout my career I have also seen how employee development & engagement has a powerful impact on business growth & performance. I use the same approach to managing resilience and wellbeing in individuals to create positive working environments within organisations.
If you would like to learn a bit more about my story then listen to my interview on the Women in Business Radio. The focus of Lordene Learning has shifted a little since this was recorded in August 2017, but it gives an insight into what inspired me to created my own business and the RAW pillars. The interview with me starts at 22 minutes!
