Does this sound like you?

  • As a busy and successful leader, you may feel a yearning for deeper purpose.
  • You may have a vision of a different future and yet find it difficult to know where to start.
  • You may struggle to find people with whom you can be truly open and share what you never wanted anyone to know about you.
  • At times, you may even feel like an outsider or imposter.
  • You may be seeking support and guidance to help you find the time and space to pursue your passions, turn your visions into reality, and build a meaningful legacy.

What is the Art of Opportunity?

The Art of Opportunity is a practical framework that enables clients to turn their visions into reality, moment by moment. This approach consists of five key invitations:

  • Dream Big to embrace possibility;
  • Craft a Living Vision to continuously challenge yourself;
  • Act with Intent to focus on what is essential;
  • Remain Curious and learn to ask more insightful questions;
  • Build Communities that empower you.

It therefore combines long and short-term timeframes to ensure that daily habits and practices, particularly around time, energy and attention, serve the long-term vision. Ultimately, it is in the present moment that we take the small yet meaningful steps that contribute to our long-term vision and shape our legacy.

My name is Tom O’Leary and I am The Moment Maverick.

In the words of the Irish poet John O’Donohue there is always a risk that identity will be reduced to biography. This can become a soulless recounting of milestones without any sense for who we have become along the way and that surely is key.

My journey, lived in a number of countries and through various languages, has in many ways brought me full circle from a childhood full of questions to an adulthood full of questions. Life has taught me that possibility lies not so much in seeking answers but in learning to ask better questions.

That life-long fascination with questions and deep conversation led me to a Masters in Personal and Management Coaching. My ongoing journey of learning, coaching and educating, particularly around our relationship with time, has been focused on expanding horizons by exploring how we may have made our worlds and our thinking too small.

Are you in the right place?

My mission is to guide people to explore and embrace bigger questions. At its core, this means challenging, stimulating and ultimately disrupting people’s thinking. The reality is that much of what we do each day leaves little or no trace because we make our worlds too small, too tactical. Learning to identify and focus on the bigger questions we are being asked can fundamentally change how we live our lives, run our organisations and the scale of what we might accomplish.

There are therefore 3 main ways I might offer bigger questions:

  • As a Vision Partner, we will create the space for you to dream big about how you see life, work and business evolving over the coming years;

  • As an Opportunity Partner, we will start building on those foundations by identifying and evaluating the opportunities ahead and focusing on daily practices and targeted actions;

  • As a Thinking Partner, we will truly deepen the conversation. I will work closely with you to provide whatever mix of big picture and tactical support you need to help you navigate the inevitable challenges and opportunities that will arise along the way.

Take care
