Alexandra Egan (Author) “R.E.S.E.T Your Thinking” has a unique and extensive career working with organisations and people from all walks of life, including Federal and State Governments, the criminal justice system and various other social justice roles.

In 2008 I had the pleasure to work with Alexandra, as major stakeholders to establish a pre and post-release employment project in the Criminal Justice System. The model combined structured workplace learning and work-readiness programs. However, establishing relationships and connecting participants with major employment and industry stakeholders was a key strategy to improve employment outcomes for ex-offenders.

At the time Alexandra was working as a Prison Liaison Officer for The Department of Human Services (Centrelink). Her passion to create environments where people flourished and her ability to engage with others soon became apparent. Our strong partnership became a significant component for the success of the project. Through this involvement, numerous gaps, that overlooked the diverse issues facing this cohort, were identified, particularly as ex-offender transitioned to release and struggled to navigate their employment network obligations. Initially, Alexandra acknowledged the need to address these concerns, at a local level, recommending procedural changes and implementing strategies for change. Alexandra soon established an affiliation with managers, industry, stakeholders and participants and included everyone in the consultation process. As a result Alexandra successfully developed and launched a local justice reference group to enhance service coordination, improve participant’s well-being pre and post-release to the community and ultimately enhancing community safety. These initiatives were adopted and later rolled out nationally.

Following on from her success in the criminal justice system, Alexandra graduated from The Coaching Institute Melbourne and in 2015 founded and owner of her innovative business; Domino Effect Consulting and Facilitating. Alexandra is a lifelong learner – she is a certified Meta Practioner, accredited behavioural profiler, mindset strategist and behavioural coach. I can speak first hand for Alexandra’s impressive background working with community diversity, as well as her outstanding ability to work with individuals, businesses and organisations to build effective, efficient, productive, high-performing individuals and teams.

It is a great privilege to endorse Alexandra’s latest publication “R.E.S.E.T Your Thinking” it is inspirational and gives you an understanding of how to build rapport, effectively communicate, connect and influence others. Alexandra has significant experience, and an abundance of knowledge acquired through her unique career spanning some 30 years.  This book shares this information and will offer many tips and tricks, an understanding of self and others and why people do what they do.

Why Don’t People Understand Me?

This book is currently in the making and due to launch end of July 2021

We spend our whole life searching to find who we truly are.

Our identity gets lost in the people we meet, the things we do, the places we visit, the things we own, the roles we play, what we study, the experiences we have. What happens is that we tend to forget who we are, what we stand for and lose sight of our authenticity, our true self.

  • How often do you let others control you?
  • How often do you let others control the kind of day you have?
  • How often do you let others control the work you do. What you feel. What you say. Who you surround yourself with?

Do you wonder why people just don’t understand you?

Most people live a life that is half lived. A life where all their energy goes outwards to please, to fit in, to rebel, to succeed, no matter the cost…

Have you ever thought about who YOU truly are?

I’m not talking about the identity society categorises you as. Just a Mother/Father, Brother/ Sister, Girlfriend /Boyfriend/Exec/Business Owner/the person with the flash car.  These are all just roles you play. They don’t represent who you truly are on the inside.

Ever wonder why people label you as someone who is intimidating? Always angry? Outspoken? Always down in the dumps? Challenging everything? Ever wonder why people don’t trust you and you them?

You are so much more than the roles you play and the labels you’ve been given.

The thing is if YOU don’t know who you are. If YOU do not know why you do what you do. Then, how do you expect others to understand you and you them? Throughout this book, I break it down for you. Using real-life situations. Real-life examples. Real-life solutions.

What makes me the expert?

Because I’ve been where you are.  I wrote this book for those who have the same questions, wishing to find the answers, just like me.

Alexandra Egan’s book “Simple Strategies to finding job in uncertain times” is very insightful. The tools Alex shares are motivating and focused for the best possible outcome. Alex shares her passion and compassion to all her readers. Thank you, Alex, for giving me the opportunity to read your book.

Thank you! As a person who lost their job due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, I had really gotten myself Into a negative mind frame. Your book has given me so much inspiration, guidance and great techniques to help me reach for my goals and grab opportunities as they arise. It is a well-written book that I would highly recommend.

Finding The Lion Within

Do you feel like you’re hiding behind this mask that everyone else wants you to wear? Suffocating and trapped behind this fake identity.

I hear you. I know how you feel because I too felt the same way for many years, until one day, I finally found my voice, my lion within.

You know, we spend our whole lives looking to find who we truly are, losing sight of our true self, our authenticity, because we are too busy being who everyone else wants us to be. And because we’re too busy being who everyone else wants us to be, we start to doubt ourselves. Our thoughts. Our dreams.

Quietly asking the question, ‘’Should I say what I feel, or should I just shut up and keep quiet’’

Why is it that we must conform to be accepted? To fit in. Feeling what others want us to feel instead of allowing ourselves to feel what we want to feel. To just BE. Why must we feel guilty about the choices we make. The decisions. The thoughts. The dreams.  Why is it that we must live a lie?

For years I have wanted to write a book. And in October 2018, I finally found the courage to publish the 1st Edition of Finding the Lion Within, Breaking Free, My journey of Self Discovery.  This is the updated version. It’s mind-blowing how much we grow as individuals when we allow ourselves the space to discover who we truly are. And be cool with it.

I see potential in every human being I meet, and I genuinely believe that we are not fully formed, rather, we are all a work in progress. There is potential in each one of us to learn and grow even more.

FINDING THE LION WITHIN is a way for me to share with you what I’ve learned about myself and others over the years.  Human behavior is something I’ve always had an interest in and so I wrote this book in a way that’s simple to read. No need to hide behind big words. Real and raw. As simple as that. In this book, I say what I mean, and I mean what I say.

I share with you the strategies I used to help me become the person I am today.

I share with you what I did to help me let go of my limiting beliefs, my self-doubt and build my self-confidence.

I share with you how I created new beliefs for myself that helped me get through the toughest, loneliest times in my life.

I originally wrote this book for 3 Reasons:

  1. To prove to myself that I can.
  2. To inspire others to do the same because we all have a story to share. And with every story, there is a lesson to be learned.
  3. To leave a legacy for my children, my grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. (when they get here.)

Don’t hold back. Be proud of who you are. Be proud of what you stand for. Your story matters because It may be the story that helps someone who has been on a similar path to you.  We can’t be everything to everyone, but, if it’s one thing I know for sure is that we can all help someone through our own experiences.  And remember this, that ‘’Your past does not equal your future’’.
