Have we met?
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I’m Patty Duque and I’d love to share with you who I am and what I’m all about.
I’ve been enthusiastic about helping others develop for over 12 years. I live in Brisbane, Australia but am originally from Colombia. I’m married to an Australian, a mother of 2 beautiful little girls, love to travel, meet new people and live every moment as it comes, making the most of every experience in a balanced and memorable way. I enjoy good food, a challenging session at the gym, a blissful yoga class but most of all I love to follow my dreams, raise my standards and set goals that take me out of my comfort zone, giving me the opportunity to welcome new experiences into my ever evolving life. This is what led me from my corporate career to coaching.
My professional journey started over 16 years ago, where I worked with global corporates. With a focus on Change Management, I assisted organisations implement innovative IT solutions successfully. I worked optimising processes, systems and people. I had the opportunity to lead teams, develop people, communicate with many and make transformational change happen. This meant leading individuals through the change process, allowing them to understand the need, accept and embrace it but most of all cement the change long term .
I have applied this transformation process in my personal life, with many individuals in different circumstances. I have even helped people who didn’t realise they needed to change. They lived comfortable and content lives but were unaware of how to completely harness their happiness.
- Have you ever asked yourself, could my life be better?
- Do you have aspirations that are hiding in the cupboard but need to come out?
- Have you begun new challenges in life but failed to embed them in a practical way into your lifestyle?
Every project team I have led, I have successfully identified my team’s unique talents. I recognise every individual has something amazing to offer. I know that if I am able to connect with what drives them, understand their fears, build rapport, be honest and gain their trust, I can achieve a successful outcome at a suitable pace. I have witnessed people be clear in what they want, change their path, revive a part within themselves, develop inner strength and welcome genuine happiness into their lives. This could be you!
It won’t just happen!
You have to take action and make it happen!
Happiness shouldn’t be in your things to do list, it should be something you live every day.
Working with people to make a positive change has always been at the heart of what I do, it’s what drives and motivates me. I like to share my energy, my practical approach to life and my experiences in the hope that they too can pay it forward because there is nothing better than the gift of giving, loving and laughing.
