TRANSFORMING MIDDLE MANAGERS INTO CONFIDENT COMMUNICATORS AND LEADERS
Amy coaches emerging leaders and mid-level managers both 1:1 and in small groups with an explicit focus on developing their confidence to step
up to lead in complex high-pressure environments.
Coaching offers an individualised approach to professional development where, through guided solution and learning focused conversations and
experimental practise, professionals can use their own workplace experiences as both case studies and laboratories to support their
leadership growth. It is a highly valuable component of Professional Development Plans for managers with high workloads, limited availability
and challenging balances of both business deliverables and team leadership responsibilities. Amy’s coaching approach is evidence-based,
utilises current understanding of neuroplasticity, growth mindset, dialogic practise and leadership development, creating spaces for deeper thinking,
reflective learning and practical, immediately applicable incremental changes for the workplace.

Working with Amy either face-to-face (in your Brisbane CBD office or her office in
or remotely (via phone or web-based video conferencing through any device), clients see both rapid improvements in their performance and thinking patterns, and deep,
long-term, sustained change in their capacity to lead and influence others. Amy’s focus is on supporting her clients to develop the confidence to step
in to difficult, complex and ambiguous situations; to hold in mind the bigger picture they are working towards; to communicate with clarity and
perspective; and to create space between their thoughts and actions so that their Impact more closely aligns with their Intention. This empowers
her clients to have more control over their leadership behaviours; and to be perceived as stronger, more engaging, more effective peers, colleagues
Amy’s coaching packages are highly flexible and designed individually for you – to best meet your schedule, the urgency of your goals and the stages
of your professional development. Sessions are usually 1-hour in duration; held weekly, fortnightly, monthly or ad hoc as you need; include thorough
and detailed follow-up notes with tools designed specifically for your needs; and invoices are sent after completion of each session, making it
easier to fit your, or your company’s, professional development budget.
If you are considering including coaching within your professional development plan at your next review, contact Amy for an initial
conversation and she can help you prepare a proposal for your boss.
Clients describe working with Amy as being like working with a sports coach for your professional performance - someone to help you focus on your
behaviours in the workplace; hone a mindset that will best support your success and support you to bounce back from mistakes; to keep you
moving towards the leader you wish to become.
During the COVID pandemic Amy developed the ‘Leader Support Series’ in response to the emerging needs she was seeing for managers and leaders to have a space to think through the challenges they were facing, and share ideas for solutions.
20+ cohorts later, this is now a highly popular program for leaders, expanding to an Executive Support Series in 2023, requested by senior leaders who wanted what their managers were having! Each series works with cohorts of a maximum of 8 leaders over 3-months of fortnightly highly-interactive, virtual, group coaching, focused on creating a safe space for leaders to
share their challenges,
learn from each other,
deepen their self-awareness and learn directly relevant and pragmatic leadership skills they can immediately apply in the workplace.
We also include peer pair coaching conversations which participants consistently highly value as part of their learning.
In our leaders’ words:
“I really valued this safe peer space that is so critical for the self-reflection work that we need to do as leaders.”
“Walked away from every session with inspiration and new leadership tools to try.”
“The conversations really made me choose to listen in. Loved that you made as much space for the little things as the bigger things – helping us recognise that big transformation can happen from the smallest of things, and that it’s all valuable learning.”

Why Coaching Works
Long-lasting sustainable change in behaviour requires making long-lasting
changes in the brain.
However unhelpful your habits might feel right now; your brain is not fixed.
Neuroplasticity allows it to constantly change, develop and learn new
But it’s not easy! Your brain needs repeated and consistent attention to the
new behaviours you wish to create, along with deep connections between
existing beliefs and the new behaviours.
A great Coach facilitates neuroplasticity – they give you space to clarify
your thinking, challenge old behaviours, experiment with new ones, and
strengthen connections to create new ways of tackling your challenges and

Let's get started...
When I started my sessions with Amy I didn't know what to expect from coaching. It opened up a new world of ideas and possibilities.
I looked forward to every session and loved every minute of it. Amy is great at asking challenging questions, helping you identify priorities and adjust
them as things evolve, and making you really work on your goals. Amy helped me identify what was going on in my brain, and as a result,
I was able to have difficult conversations with leaders in our team and create momentum for changes in our team culture.
Senior Analyst in logistics
For the past 18 months I have been acting in a mid-level leadership role & wish to continue up the ladder into a senior role. For this purpose, I was recommended to Amy to develop my leadership skills.
I partnered with Amy in a small cohort of other leaders to engage and explore our current leadership challenges. Amy’s advice and insights were easy to understand and realistic, & subsequently, I have been able to adapt her methods into my work.
Amy continues to be someone I partner with in my work and I have built a deeper understanding of how to be an effective leader, how to undertake difficult conversations and lead in an evolving and changing environment.
