CEO at russelldriscoll.com and Executive Pastor at Nowra City Church and Impact Church at Monash in the ACT. I wear two hats. I'm an Organisational Performance Adviser and I head up russelldriscoll.com, a consultancy firm that specialises in organisational performance. I'm also an ordained minister and have pastoral leadership responsibilities at two wonderful local churches.
Doing a postgraduate degree while in full-time employment necessitates good time management skills. Also, at postgrad level where you encounter peers who are highly competent and strong minded individuals, your communication and negotiation skills are tested and honed.
Yes in both my roles. Working with senior management and being able to add tangible value to an organisation is both stimulating and satisfying. While being able to serve the community in a pastoral care role is a privilege, it also delivers a sense of worth and fulfillment.
Remain focused on both the micro and the macro; the micro is doing all that is necessary to get through your current unit, while the macro is the end goal of graduating knowing that you will be sufficiently rewarded for not just the qualification, but for the experiences you embraced and can now share.
