Episode 10: With Sally Arnold on how diversification makes us resilient

Sally Arnold

As the title suggests, this podcast is all about unearthing a new perspective on risk.

My guests are experts in their fields where they impact risk either directly or indirectly. My interviews aim to lift the lid on risk and rip it apart to give you a whole new perspective on it.

My name’s Lisa Sisson and I am founder of risk consultancy, Unearth. I’m also becoming known somewhat as a “Risk Rebel”.

At Unearth we believe that risk starts and ends with people. Equally, we believe that opportunity starts and ends with people. So if you’re not looking at risk with, through and by your people, then you are not only leaving your organisation exposed to risk, you are also not opening up the opportunities that a people-centred risk strategy will deliver.

Sally Arnold is my guest on Episode 10 of the Unearth A New Perspective On Risk podcast.

Sally is an award winning author, speaker and business coach who specialises in moving individuals and organisations out of stuckness. She is able to turn around challenges towards resolution and success through her innovative business “Creating Encores”.

Sally began her professional life as a flautist in New Zealand and worked globally. She settled back in Melbourne and launched her own successful gourmet cookware shop, and was then headhunted by a Melbourne store to reinvigorate their homewares department.

Combining this business experience with her passion for the performing arts, she sought and won the coveted role of Head of Business Development at The Australian Ballet.

Fascinated by the successful mindset techniques of high-performing artists, she became aware of how well they could be translated into the business world to bring creative solutions to business challenges.  She has also trained as a psychotherapist.

Today, Sally’s innovative and robust methodology underpins her coaching programs and her book, “Creating Encores”. She integrates her passion for performance excellence with her skills as a facilitator to unlock greater productivity and fast track success.

In this interview, Sally shares her thoughts with us on how diversification makes us resilient,  including the  journey of her own career. Some of the areas we get into in this discussion…

  • The multiple and disparate paths that we can take in our careers
  • How diversifying can make us resilient
  • The power of music in meditation
  • How support systems can guide us through stepping out of our comfort zones
  • How new life and ways forward can emerge from shocking times
