My name is Tom O’Leary and I am The Moment Maverick.
In one sentence – I work with people to expand horizons one moment at a time.
When you pare it all back, I effectively work as a Chief Coaching Officer – so working with the environment (organisational, physical, cultural….) as much as with the individual.
Nudging people to step back and look at the bigger questions particularly around what it is we do day-in, day-out. Questions such as:
- Whose priorities am I serving?
- What would I really like to accomplish?
- Might there be ways to jump ten steps ahead?
- How do I truly allocate my time, energy and attention?
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.
A question I often ask is “What might you do today that might echo in a year?”
What Question Brought You Here?
Life is in essence a series of questions – every step we take we are asking something of the world although are never quite sure what or how it will answer. At times it almost feels like we are stumbling along in search of a question that is just out of reach.
The challenge is that much of our energy and attention is spent answering other people’s questions, following in their footsteps, working on their priorities. This makes it harder to see the bigger questions floating all around us and truly bring our own voices to bear.
How might I help?
My particular focus is on facilitating conversations around time, and hence deeper questions around purpose, productivity and creativity. I have been on the treadmill both on the corporate side and as an entrepreneur so I know what it is like.
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 led me to a Masters in Personal and Management Coaching.
My ongoing journey of coaching and educating others has been focused on expanding horizons by exploring how we may have made our worlds and our thinking too small.
