Quiet Connections’ Unlocking Potential Breakthrough Story

Unlocking Potential have been a great source of support in my journey to growing my own confidence and helping others. 

Five years ago, I joined their Stand Out from the Crowd course to support me in making a career change -it was here I met two of my incredible team members, Michele and Gemma- and since then I’ve been supported in finding and developing in a graduate job and, more recently, starting up Quiet Connections. 

It was here, on their Breakthrough course, that I first received any business support. My seed of an idea began to grow as I, again, stepped outside of my comfort zone and expanded my vision.

You can watch my Breakthrough story below, or read it here.

    Hi, I’m Hayley - the original quieteer. I, too, identify as a quiet person. I’m naturally a highly sensitive introvert and I love and appreciate my quiet strengths now, but I spent much of my life not feeling good enough and experiencing social anxiety. I missed so many opportunities because I was afraid of being judged harshly, criticised and rejected – and because I doubted that I had the ‘right’ personality to succeed. Quiet Connections exists in part because I had a fantastic coach who helped me to work through old patterns of keeping myself small and hidden so that I could show up and be seen to play my part in creating the more connected, curious and compassionate world that I dream of. Now, I’m passionate about helping quiet people discover their unique qualities, gifts, passions and experiences and explore how best to use these to express themselves more authentically and contribute to the world in a way that works with their quieter or more sensitive nature. Get to know me here.
