I am a certified life coach and EQ practitioner with 25 years+ governance and leadership experience. I can help you define and navigate your own unique path to success.
Every individual is different with a personal set of challenges and aspirations. Coaching is a deeply personal process that requires honesty, trust and transparency on both sides. I work closely with my clients and care deeply about achieving the outcomes and results they desire. A key focus in my coaching technique is on developing emotional intelligence attributes, as these are one of the most important factors in achieving balance, contentment and success in all areas of life.
Coaching is the best investment you can make because it is an investment in yourself. The benefits to clients far outweigh the original cost. In the workplace, they can include:
Clients can learn other skills that can be utilized inside or outside the workplace:

As a skilled and experienced presenter and speaker, I work with the organization to deliver exactly what they need. I collaborate with you to identify current challenges and how EQ can be used to develop the potential of their teams. This is done through a combination of group coaching, interactive Q&A sessions, facilitated programs and exercises/strategies that team members can work on collectively or individually. This is done over a sustained period of time to promote real and lasting change.
The benefits to the organization are numerous and include tangible and intangible benefits:
If any of this aligns with the vision of the type of emotionally intelligent organization you wish to create, please contact me. Building positive cultural change in this way takes time and sustained effort, and setting the tone from the top. I will support you for as long as it takes.
I am passionate about delivering a message. You tell me what you need, and I will design a customized course/presentation for your team/audience to build their knowledge and skills and set them up for success. My aim is to inform, stimulate and create awareness. I adopt an energetic, interactive and humorous style; I like to involve the audience. My current offering of governance related courses are as follows:
Without proper induction, a new director will always be playing catch up to his or her fellow directors. This session is designed for the board secretary to design and administer a process that ensures the director can make an informed and confident contribution early on. We look at areas to cover in induction, when and how it should be conducted, the role of key stakeholders and documents to provide the new director.
Board Conflict Resolution
The session focuses on why conflict is all around us and how we can reframe our approach to conflict as a powerful tool in the boardroom. We examine the mindset and ground rules to promote healthy debate and examine the key roles of the board secretary and the Chair in creating the culture, environment, and systems to facilitate and resolve board conflicts.
Using EQ to Drive Board Success
So much of the success or otherwise of boards is focused on their behaviours. This session enables board members and those who support them to identify how boards can drive success and impact by being role models for the characteristics that will drive success throughout the organization. We identify the behaviours and qualities of the most effective directors.
What Makes a Great Board Chair
We examine the key functions of the Chair as a facilitator, leader, speaker, coach/mentor, mediator and role model for integrity, break down key tasks, and how to do them well (such as building consensus) and examine the key characteristics, skills and attributes of truly effective chairs.
Board Dynamics – A Key to Effective Oversight
Helping boards understand how the right board dynamics can have a significant impact on their ability to perform effective oversight over management performance, and what they can do to contribute to creating the right systems, processes, and behaviour.
