I want to tell you just how much your coaching and our time actually meant to me.  In retrospect, your engagement with me was the ‘turning point’ in my entire professional career.  Somehow (and I know it was a lot of work), you made me really understand and ‘feel’ what it might be like to lead in the manner I really wanted to…..and I think, in the last 7 years, I was very definitely different, and it showed in the impact I have felt reflected from others in the last week as I get ready to retire.  I hesitate to think about what might have really happened if we had not done the work we did, but I am glad we did!

Managing a diverse & rapidly growing team was a huge challenge, with Barbara’s unique skills and techniques, we worked on establishing my strengths and dealing with challenges more efficiently. This has provided me with the right guidance and tools to becoming an effective leader.

Barbara’s warm people skills and extensive experience working with diverse professionals made for exciting sessions providing rapid and welcomed results.

Working with Barbara has enabled me to be more conscious, whilst developing positive changes in both my working and private life.

Sometimes it’s the simplest of insights that have the most profound impact. Through her wealth of experience, deep technical understanding and skilled coaching techniques, Barbara was able to analyse and distil from reams of quantitative and qualitative data, and then frame the right questions needed to lead to meaningful reflection and self-discovery without trying to “boil the ocean”. Barbara has a lovely style in which she quickly develops trust and rapport, while at the same time holding the participant to account. The supporting reading material Barbara recommended was also perfectly aligned for my needs. At the outset, I asked Barbara to challenge my thinking and not to pull any punches. Barbara well and truly fulfilled her commitment and as a result I’m a better “version” of myself today.

Nigel Bailey Leader, Information Technology (CIO) TasNetworks July 29, 2021

Only our rich personal resources can fuel us to become, and then sustain ourselves, as effective leaders. These skills can only truly be revealed from deep awareness and a genuine rigor to ask the questions that will make the most difference. Then, one must apply these learnings and understandings day to day to create success in every aspect of our business (and life) which require them.

Barbara’s brilliant and insightful guidance will unlock the exact resources to take you on a bold, fulfilling and richly rewarding experience which will, without question, make an enormous and lasting difference in any area you have the courage to delve into. The beauty and wisdom of this approach is there is nothing to be ‘fixed’, only forged, and with that comes such instinctive repair and sustained alignment.

A journey not to be underestimated nor missed. After 31 years of running my own company, I feel renewed and resourced in a way which was long overdue and genuinely welcomed.

I had the absolute pleasure of being coached by Barbara through a number of career progressions and personal challenges. Barbara’s genuine warmth and care for me holistically allowed us to rapidly build trust and explore sometime confronting aspects of my leadership style and personality. Her approach of focusing on development opportunities in the moment and on mission critical initiatives meant that what I discovered and learned about myself was instantly applicable and impactful. The targeted use of analytical tools complemented Barbara’s insights and anecdotes and her knack of holding me to account.

I have no doubt that my growth with Barbara has contributed to the leadership and personal success I have achieved to date and will stay with me well into the future.

Annette Woods Vice President Global Technology BHP July 29, 2021

When running a business there is no end to the tasks that you need to perform. Everyone wants a piece of you including your family.

Working with Barbara has enabled me to understand what I need to do to manage this. For me it is all about focusing and being mentally engaged rather than constantly worrying about what might be.
