When somebody says, ‘Live your purpose,’ what does it mean and can you live your purpose?

After 10 years in leadership in the corporate world, Dr. Patricia Murugami left to start Breakthrough Leadership Transformation to help people live their purpose, break their barriers and live their best life yet, at an individual, team and board levels.

Breakthrough Leadership Transformation is geared towards helping people live their best and be their best. She has been instrumental in coaching and mentoring women across all ages and helping them break their barriers to achieve their goals especially encouraging them to secure their positions in leadership and boardroom levels.

She has been using several platforms – YouTube, Telegram and a podcast, to coach, mentor and give snippets of wisdom to women on how to live their best, be their best and live a life of purpose.

Last year, she was forced to challenge herself and break her own barriers when the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country. Her much-awaited conference was cancelled the day before its date after the first case was announced in the country.  After taking time to adjust to the new normal, she knew it was time to identify and leverage on the opportunities that came with the pandemic.

“After I overcame that initial shock and dismay, and denial that this disease was going to stay with us this pandemic, then I thought, you know, what, I’ve always taught people how to disrupt themselves reinvent themselves, how about I take a little bit of my own medicine?” she told the Safaricom Newsroom.

She settled on a podcast, which she has been using to tell stories about Safaricom’s Women in Business.

Dr. Murugami has been working with the Safaricom women in business team by helping them be their best selves giving them a platform to tell their story on her podcast.

The theme of this year’s international women’s day is Choose to Challenge. Dr. Patricia has started by challenging herself to give more, share more and turn her personal pain into something that can help others move forward and break her own barriers.
