I'm Alex and I help people and organisations to Be More Pirate
Are they working? Or are you just doing things the way they've always been done? So much of our day to day behaviours are a result of legacy and conditioning. Becoming more pirate helps you to find a different and better way.
What matters most to you? Do you understand your own strengths, beliefs, desires and ambitions? Do you put them into practice? To challenge the status quo you first need to find your compass.
Pirates boldly go where others fear to tread, which means learning how to constructively challenge yourself and others, take calculated risks, raise taboo topics, and become more comfortable sitting in uncomfortable spaces.
Crew is the backbone of any pirates' success. Being a lone rebel can be dangerous and lead to burnout, whereas strong relationships and networks are the foundation from which the most effective action happens.
Pirates were master storytellers. They created a legend that's lasted generations with a tantalising blend of drama and relatability. The most powerful stories are authentic, simple and specific - are you making the most of yours?
Experience is the key to growth, so I work with the strategy of testing small bold actions and allowing perfectionism to die a subtle death. Pirates had no time for dithering, they learnt through trying, testing failing and more trying.
"Alex was a fantastic facilitator, guiding us through a high energy and thoroughly inspiring team session. Be more pirate has really challenged us to think differently and continues to shape how we operate as a team."
