The Legendary Leaders Podcast

Feb 20, 2020


Introducing Victoria Smith Murphy as my guest in the 17th episode of my Legendary Leaders podcast series. Victoria is a coach who helps leaders to bring soul and humanity into the world of business. This involves working 121 with leaders, delivering workshops and talks in medium and large organisations and she runs an intuitive career journey online course.


Victoria shares her philosophy which centres around these 3 key pillars:

  • Self-connection – being able to hear your inner voice above the external noise

  • Purpose – that which inspires you and pulls you in your direction

  • Flow – your way of working and living, welcoming what is rather than chasing what should be


The key issues Victoria comes across in those she works with are a lack of direction and lack of confidence. She describes the misalignment people often see between who they are as a human being and the work they’re doing. She talks about the expectation on leaders to know and have all the answers and the pressure that can bring. Victoria shares how she uses Tarot as a great way for offering someone a spotlight to say that’s how I feel about something or that’s what I need to do, so that everything else can melt away.


When asked what leadership means for Victoria, she insightfully answers that it’s starting with the ability to lead ourselves and really understand what is true for us, having the courage to act from that place. Finally leaving us with her top tip, Victoria highlights the importance of tuning into ourselves and hearing our inner voice.
