A Bit About Us

Nurturing Choicefulness was founded by Monica Leon in 2015.

Our deepest desire is to minimize the likelihood of people and organisations becoming and feeling that they are irrelevant. Irrelevancy doesn’t happen when we retire, it happens every time we feel we are unable to make our contributions heard or be felt. We are conscious of the ripple effects of a society that carries the weight of a growing number of people that feel “irrelevant and excluded”.

Our practice exists to help individuals and organisations develop the skills to re-create themselves and find chaos and change as prompts to activate their antifragile capabilities. Antifragility goes beyond resilience (recover from failure) and robustness (resist failure), as it increases their overall capability to thrive in unknown environments, using uncertainty, volatility, mistakes or failures, as fuel to generate new versions or enhanced versions of self.
