A serious ski accident in 1983, meant Gina Gardiner was forced to use a wheelchair but, in her leadership role as head teacher of a large primary school, it was imperative that she looked at the bigger picture in order to overcome the significant challenges facing her.
Because Gina was in a wheelchair she was unable to access most of the classrooms. She had to look at the bigger picture and develop ways to motivate and engage staff so that they were self-reliant and understood how to deliver excellence and take responsibility for their own performance.
Today, Gina a highly successful and experienced Leadership Consultant and Trainer, Speaker, Executive and Life Coach.
Gina learned to walk twice as an adult and the fight for better mobility is ongoing. It has given her a unique understanding of how empowering or limiting beliefs have the power to hold us back or to help us forge ahead. Just as important has been a true sense of how a shift of perspective changes everything. A wheelchair can be seen as a significant limitation or as a chariot on fire offering freedom and empowerment. It is all about choice. What choice do you think she made?
