CONTRIBUTION COMPASS PROFILE – Calibrator


(Accredited Facilitator)

Business Architecture

In her IT consulting career and in building the board methodology and business growth framework at Sirdar Group, Belinda developed a deep understanding of the systems thinking nature of business – the synergy of interconnected and interdependent parts of the ‘system’. All businesses and organisations have the same pieces that need to work together to do something extraordinary.

High-Performance Boards and Directors

Through her involvement with Sirdar Group, Belinda has developed a unique perspective on what it means to be a high-performance director and the critical role that business plays in making a meaningful economic impact. She co-developed the Sirdar Group methodology and education programmes for director training, including the Sirdar Applied Directorship Programme, which she also facilitated.

Building Teams

Through Belinda’s work as a certified Lego® Serious Play® (LSP) facilitator and as co-founder of the Contribution Compass, she has practical understanding of the deeper untold stories in our journeys in teams and how to create deep transformation to lift our collective contribution.

Media

Belinda uses the power of clear and insightful language and visual media to create awareness, shift perceptions and shine the light on simple ideas in the midst of complexity. She has largely achieved this through the extensive development of education and online materials. She has also been the managing editor and ghost writer in four non-fiction titles, three of which are published. Belinda is the host of Show Me the Honey, a weekly podcast focused on showcasing real people doing really amazing things in the people, teams and organisational development arena.

Education

Belinda co-founded a college, which was before its time in outcomes-based education and assessment. This expanded into e-learning and Moodle deployment, and the training of facilitators globally using e-learning platforms. This accelerated through her education roles at Sirdar Group and the Contribution Compass. She recently launched an online learning platform called Apian Learning.

Living to work’ versus ‘working to live’: the distinction might not seem that significant – but even a shift in attitude of one degree – can change everything. Satisfaction and fulfilment in career have much to do with a two-way flow of energy, investment and return. Meaningful employ is thus largely a matter of value.
