• The Essence of The Greatness Principle

    Jen Harwood shares the essence of what support looks like, how we lose it and how to build it back up.

    Being a leader in life, family and business...

    It's all about surrounding yourself with GREAT support so that you can be truly great in all

    circumstances, especially when it matters most and times are tough !

  • The Greatness Principle

    Investing in People's Greatness


    Anyone can be great and create great results. Greatness is not dependant on age, race, gender, skill, experience or any factor. Every human being can be GREAT at anything if....


    1. They have a vision.

    2. They focus, take action and persevere and...

    3. They have a trusted support team around them.


    IF they don’t have a committed trustworthy TEAM around them it is almost certain they will fail. Humans are designed to work together, even when they don’t want to. Sometimes, our biggest enthusiast, scholar, catalyst or most 'negative' grounder is exactly what our greatness needs. Our current 'instant and disposable' society is very happy to end relationships, ignore critical comments and perceived negativity because it doesn't feel good. Do you do that? Does someone you know do that?


    When we exclude all points of view and just favour a select few... we miss out on seeing the big picture and possible options and sometimes persevering though the hard and difficult times. Greatness isn't all about happiness and sunshine. Its also about holding your nerve, standing your ground, doing the work and being your best, when its hard, impossible and dark.


    When we don’t see the bigger perspective and don't have a trusted team supporting us in a variety of useful ways, we become isolated and vulnerable. This then causes our decision making to be limited which compounds more poor decision being made, leading to poor results. We can not rely on the conversations we have with yourself to be 100% independent, unbiased and ever expanding ALL the time. We are HUMAN... we are built to have a multitude of emotions, thoughts, feelings and experiences that will impact, influence, disrupt and DISTRACT our greatness... guaranteed. We need a trusted support of people to navigate us and keep us on track to achieve our greatness.


    The Greatness Principle is a simple tool that enables you to stay connected to healthy relationships, to select and nurture new relationships to ensure whatever vision you want for yourself and your life actually happens and doesn't remain a pipe dream. It is for leaders, employees, parents and even children wanting to become great in their business, lives, family and community. One you know The Greatness Principle, you know it for life !


    No-one ever becomes great and stays great all by themselves !

  • Leading can be lonely

    Almost every person at some point in their business/career, will face social and/or emotional isolation. They will lose their trusted confidants through normal life events such as death of a loved one, divorce, illness, marriage, birth of a child, job change and relocation. When we lose or even 'get rid' of people on purpose from our lives and don't replace that relationship role, we reduce the level of support and perspective and become lone wolves trying to survive everything. This way of being and working is exhausting and can make the business or situation even worse.

  • What people have got from The Greatness Principle Program

    From some of the people who have participated in 2 day event and 8 week follow up coaching

    Ginny had many revelations

    Ginny found the program supported her in understanding who she has around her, how she asks for and receives support and most importantly that she is responsible for creating her life and the people she has around her. Way to go Ginny.

    Gail wasnt going to attend

    Gail is a successful business woman and has a busy life. Taking the time for herself to create her vision for the next stages of her life was being put off. In the program Gail was confronted with identifying her support team for the future she wanted and then going out and making her life happen the way she wanted! Go Gail.
