Our Team

Our team is a high performing team. We are very good at what we do! And modest you might say. But it’s not about ego for us – we are highly trained professionals who love what we do.

We have experience in what you are experiencing

You need to work with a team of people who just “get it”. We understand the needs of executives, senior managers and their teams. We work with HR professionals and L&D professionals on a daily basis.  We have experienced what you have experienced in our past careers and through our clients every day.

We invest in our learning and development

We invest in our learning and development and professional growth.  Just like we encourage you to do. And we have created a workplace that people love; where we achieve great things together; we give each other feedback in the spirit of continuous improvement; and we have fun along the way.

Of course we are highly accredited coaches, all holding the coaching qualifications and ICF credentials.

We have business degrees and business experience across a range of industries, government and private sectors.

Highly accredited coaches

Across the team we have coaches who are accredited to deliver most of the key tools and profiles used by organisations including:

• DISC
• MBTI
• LSI
• Strengthscope
• The Leadership Circle (TLC)

There are plenty of letters after our names. But nothing is more important than the rapport, trust and confidence and partnerships that we create with our clients, that enables them to achieve the amazing results that they do.
