Karen de Tysson is CEO of CCK and a Director of the CCK Group of Companies, a dynamic corporation whose principle based approach is influencing leaders and organisations globally.
Karen's unique background began as a world class ballerina. Following an injury that ultimately terminated her ballet career, she made the transition into the world of finance.
Over a ten-year period, Karen expanded her skills and influence through systematically qualifying as a Commodity Broker, Australian Certified Investment Planner and Regional Manager of an International Financial Planning Company. This strategic approach ultimately resulted in a transition to leadership consultant and advisor to many of Australia's multi-national corporations.
Karen's determination to move beyond mediocrity has challenged her to continually strive for excellence in such diverse fields as performing arts, finance and now kung fu. This, coupled with an increasing belief that a new paradigm of leadership must emerge, has led directly to her global success.
True leadership will emerge when there is recognition that current leadership skills will simply not suffice. Congruency and accountability are required, and are the result of the intention to be responsible for all areas of life.
Karen now challenges leaders in all fields of endeavour to live leadership, rather than simply be seen as a leader.
It is now time to be the leader that we demand!
