Meet the Author

Judith Leary-Joyce: Psychologist, Management Consultant, Personal Coach, Inspirational Speaker and author of

Inspirational Manager.

Like many serial achievers, Judith’s career has had more than one peak – and like most, it has had its share of miss-steps and mini-troughs in between them (a brief and less than inspirational spell as a teacher in her twenties would be a case in point!). But like all serial achievers she has had the ambition to constantly strive for a new challenge, and the determination to make the changes that were necessary to achieve it.

Indeed it was the feat of reaching a new, and intensely satisfying, peak in her early fifties – an age when society seems to suggest that we are past our best – that got her to thinking about the way that some people peak in different ways at different times during their life. She began to examine the underlying psychology that enables some people to live lives of serial achievement, and the reasons why others fail to fulfil their potential.
