Everyone is a leader in their own right

Alison Fischer; Abuse Survivor. Leadership Lighthouse. Trusted Advisor.

Better World Leaders, Episode 4

This week’s guest is Alison Fischer, who shares her incredible journey of resilience and perseverance. A champion for survivors of domestic abuse, inspirational speaker and leadership consultant to entrepreneurs and small business owners.

Alison is a survivor, an executive, a ‘People-First’ leader, Mom to two beautiful girls, a loyal friend and hopeless romantic. Alison’s career spans two decades in corporate, including both thriving cultures in established companies and start-ups, as well as times spent in toxic environments with very little positive leadership. During much of this time she was enduring a violent domestic relationship, which she compartmentalised and did not disclose to her colleagues and leaders. Finally, a fractured bone was the final straw as a catalyst to make a change for good.

Alison’s mission today is to provide support to those that have none. No mentors, no guides, no one to lean in to during challenging times – as a lighthouse for leaders, executives and survivors alike to live and lead a life with confidence and conviction, not settling for less than they deserve.

Key messages from this conversation;- Alison’s EPIC leadership model.- Everyone is a leader in their own right.- Collectively we make change. Every voice is important, but collectively we are better- Great leaders do not make it about them, they bring other people up, make people better and the world better.- Great leaders create a movement because it’s not about them, it’s about the greater good.- How to become a better world leader; focus on active listening, find clarity in your mission or purpose, be empathetic, put people first always.

Alison is providing 1 hour of free coaching to survivors of domestic abuse throughout the month of May. She also provides Confidence Coaching to Leaders, Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners.
