Hello! I’m Akua Nyame-Mensah and I teach multi-hyphenate leaders how to focus and connect to scale.
ARE YOU A MULTI- HYPHENATE*?
Not sure what that is?
*multi·hy·phen·ate | /mʌl.ti- ˈhī-fə-ˌnāt \
A leader that makes significant contributions beyond their primary organization or companies. Multi-hyphenate leaders have multiple passions, are not afraid to have several important roles, are dedicated to pursuing opportunities that resonate with them, and create a positive impact wherever they go.
YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE IF YOU ARE A PASSIONATE LEADER WHO IS READY TO UNLEASH THEIR POTENTIAL BEYOND THEIR DAY TO DAY WORK:
DO YOU FEEL SHACKLED BY THE STATUS QUO AND STEREOTYPES?
😓Do you hear yourself saying “need to," “have to,” or “should do” often?
😔Do you see approach to <insert challenge here> in black and white as if there’s no alternative?
😥Are you having difficulty operating outside the box of life, cultural, gender, role expectations?
ARE YOU TRAPPED IN THE STUCK/ OVERWHELM PARADOX?
😕Do you want to start a <insert amazing idea here> but unsure of where to begin?
😩Are you tired of ending up stuck in analysis paralysis, distractions, perfectionism or procrastination?
🤹🏼Are you juggling stakeholders, a board of directors, ambassadors, employees, clients, customers, funders, family <insert long list here> and not sure who to please first?
ARE YOU CONSTANTLY FIREFIGHTING?
🏃🏻♀️Are you running around doing everyone else’s job?
😭Are you sick of being a dumping ground for everyone else’s problems?
🙁Would you love to go beyond what’s right here, right now, and be future strategic and sustainable?
GLOBALLY MINDED AND AMBITIOUS LEADERS WORK WITH ME TO:
EXPLORE AND SECURE NEW PERSPECTIVES AND OPPORTUNITIES
✅Imagine when you are building a new product or service, you aren’t stuck and you know how to bring your people along starting with brainstorming.
✅Imagine you are not afraid to put yourself out there on LinkedIn and share your #win of securing additional funding.
✅Imagine securing that non-executive board seat at that socially conscious multinational company.
“...I sought out your services at a time when I had a lot of anxiety around my professional life, particularly with feeling like a “jack of all trades, master of none,” and I also felt stuck. I really wanted to transition from my current job and company. You helped me understand that being a “Generalist” is a totally acceptable, empowering, and something to be proud of...I started getting so much traction...and recently accepted an offer…[I also landed] a part-time remote role with...managing their investor relations function. These are all roles I know I am going to thoroughly enjoy…”
MAKE CLEAR DECISIONS AND PRIORITIZE
✅Imagine when your investor calls you with an urgent matter and yet you have meetings all day and an overflowing inbox, you know what to you tackle first.
✅Imagine engaging with your highly motivated team that knows how to prioritize and get their work done without needing your constant push.
✅Imagine not feeling guilty about getting home in time to put your kids to bed and have a glass of wine with your partner before 10 pm.
“If I need to ‘get things’ done, Akua is my ‘go-to’ coach. I come to Akua because I know that with her, I will leave with a clear action plan that I am willing and excited (maybe scared) to pursue. Consider selecting Akua as a coach if you are stuck and need to move forward. She is focused, creative, and a ninja-coach."
CONNECT AND STRATEGIZE TO BUILD SUSTAINABLE PROCESSES TO MOVE FORWARD
✅ Imagine when you are ready to go on vacation, your board won’t freak out and your employees will already know what they are supposed to do.
✅Imagine waking up on Monday morning without stress and excited to start work because you already put together your plan and there are no fires to put out.
✅Imagine finding and hiring the perfect Virtual Assistant so you no longer have to do tasks you hate, giving you the energy and space to do an extra Facebook Live each week.
After attending her workshop, I got in touch with Akua because I wanted to get additional insight on how to get and keep my employees motivated. Before our conversations, I had low employee engagement and was feeling frustrated. I had tried to ensure my staff was more engaged through weekly and monthly review meetings. After speaking with Akua I was enlightened and more knowledgeable. I have been able to leverage knowledge about my staff’s personality traits and what they care about into higher engagement. If you are thinking about working with Akua, I would definitely recommend you go ahead and do just that. There's a lot to learn from her.
All so you can secure that additional revenue stream, project, or title.
(if none of these resonate with you, I’m still happy to connect you to someone in my network that can support you)
I'm a multi-hyphenate, just like you!
Strategic Advisor - Executive Leadership Coach - Business Consultant - Facilitator - Founder - Teacher - Mentor - Start-Up Leader - Employee - Athlete - Returnee - Expat - Learner - Reader - INTJ - Truth Teller - <insert the additional dozens of ways in which I can define myself>
I’m a certified executive coach and multi-hyphenate introverted entrepreneur who knows what it takes to connect with the right people to build tech-enabled businesses and teams from the ground up:
✔️ As a start-up executive at the first African based tech unicorn, I’ve launched and built an online platform and team from scratch,
✔️ At the same company, I was promoted and moved to take over an online platform and team in West Africa’s largest market,
✔️ As an infopreneur, I’ve launched my own virtual coaching and consulting practice leveraging online consultants and experts, and
✔️ As a co-founder, I’ve most recently joined a Pan-African platform, CoffeeChat, to increase access to coaching.
I’ve leveraged my innate personality through increasing my self-awareness and building frameworks to go from an Ivy League-educated city planning graduate to a startup executive to a project-based entrepreneur and certified executive coach.
LET'S WORK TOGETHER
1:1 EXECUTIVE CLARITY
I get deeply immersed with my 1:1 clients and as a result I only work with a few 1:1 clients at a time. I become part of your team and leverage my unique methodology to look at everything beyond your leadership responsibility (and team if you have one), including your personal and professional goals.
Anyone who wants to work with me, I interview to make sure we are a good fit. In doing so, I need you to schedule a time to connect and to complete an application form.
UNLEASH YOUR INNER EXECUTIVE GROUP EXPERIENCE
This is for the leader who is ready to scale their ability to connect and focus to get to what they define as the next level.
You’ve got ideas and opportunities, but you want to make the most of your innate personality and put the right systems in place to get everything done. You want to create aligned expectations for yourself (and your team) so that you achieve consistently in your professional AND personal life.
With a combination of thorough step-by-step strategy and high-touch support (this isn't a course!), you'll implement my signature framework The S.E.E. Method in a safe and collaborative space.
