Executive Coaching

Executive Coaching for Passionate Professionals in Sydney

Are you wanting to up-level your leadership and achieve greater results with your team?

Feeling as though you’re always busy, struggling to meet targets and reacting when you would rather be responding to inputs from others?

Are you even considering what might be next for your personal career?

These are the signs that executive coaching can help you.

You might also be:

  • Frustrated that you have no time for strategic thinking and planning, even though you know that it’s needed 
  • Feeling resentful of the poor performers in your team causing others to carry more than their fair share – yet unsupported in dealing with them 
  • Concerned that what others might be saying about your capability could damage your reputation 
  • Long overdue for a break but afraid to leave things in the hands of others

If you’re wondering how much longer you can keep this up, executive coaching is for you. 

We Specialise in Transformational Coaching for Women

As an executive, you have a difficult and stressful job. Work hard, play hard, no pain no gain and similar mantras cause you to push yourself beyond what your body is truly capable of sustaining over the longer term – and eventually, it starts to take its toll.

Not to mention the added pressure of life outside of your career, as a parent, a multi-tasker or as an ambitious, highly-driven woman. Your career might be tipping the balance in other areas of your life too.

Are you feeling that yet?

If you’re feeling the pressure of your position, a desire to see your team perform better, or the yearning for something more fulfilling, consider investing in executive coaching.

Invest in yourself and see a transformation in your performance and your career as well as your quality of life. 

You are in the right place.

The potential crisis point that you are now approaching is sending you a message. This could be the greatest gift of your life, a turning point and a doorway to a whole new up-levelled version of yourself if you use it wisely.

Who is Executive Coaching For?

Executive coaching is for passionate professionals at a management or executive level, looking to advance in their career, make a bigger or broader impact and further their leadership skills.

They want this to happen in the context of a private, confidential, purposeful relationship with a qualified professional, who can think at their level, support their process and challenge them appropriately. 

Whether you’re the CEO of a large firm, a middle manager, or small business owner, Sue’s coaching can offer you a broader perspective on the problems and issues that you face as well as a rare opportunity to understand and constructively explore your own decision processes.

What Does a Sydney Executive Coach Do?

It comes down to high impact conversations.

Together with Sue, you will identify the actions necessary to make your contribution to your organisation the success you want it to be. Over time, you will develop the leadership presence and skills to implement your plans. 

Here are some of the ways Sue supports Sydney executives through her tailored coaching programs:

Private In-Person VIP Days

A half-day or full-day private workshop for deep-diving into key essentials. These can include personality, story, strategic planning, role-playing or practicing real situations such as making speeches or having tough conversations.

Face to Face Coaching Sessions

These sessions are held regularly, generally every 2-4 weeks, for the duration of your executive coaching program in Sydney. Coaching sessions are tailored to help you reach your goals as well as to offer personal feedback, key insights and decision making support.

Online Coaching Sessions

Similar to the face to face coaching sessions, these are more suited to remote work situations and held over Zoom. As with any coaching, the work you do between sessions is vital to your success, hence we use online methods of staying in touch to support you throughout your journey.

Personal Assessments

Assessments help you better understand yourself ad your leadership style. Depending on what’s needed, you may experience personality, leadership style, decision-making style, money archetype or 360° feedback assessments.

Accountability Calls

Regular, laser-focused accountability check-ins or just in time “saves” that keep you in the flow. If you ever need a support system to help you bypass negative thought patterns or bright shiny objects, we have your back.

Document Perusal & Email Support

No matter if you need a quick check-in for a presentation you’re preparing or an in-depth review of specific documents, with an executive coach by your side you have all the support and feedback you need.

Priority Access

VIP access to Sue is available with some of the coaching packages available. If you need priority assistance, problem-solving or help during an emergency situation, you will have the opportunity to contact Sue directly at short notice.

Working with you one-on-one enables a personalised and comprehensive plan to be developed for and with you, to achieve your goals. Those who have a better understanding of themselves are better equipped to inspire others and deliver results from those they manage. 

The degree of insight and courageous, honest feedback that you can gain from an Executive Coaching program is uniquely powerful.

How Sue has helped leaders like you

“Sue is incredibly insightful and within a short period of time, has been able to help me see my strengths and opportunities for growth.  I have appreciated her wise counsel and ability to help me re-frame challenges.

Working with Sue has given me a different way to think about challenges and has given me tools for being able to express myself with greater confidence.  Through this process I have gained a greater insight into what is important to me, and how I can better align my actions and purpose.  I’ve also gained a much better understanding of what triggers me and how I can avoid unhelpful behaviours.  

At first the idea of executive coaching was a bit intimidating for me.  Now that I’ve been through this process, I really see that it is an incredible investment in yourself.  I have gained so much more out of this than I expected.  I had hoped to increase my leadership capacity and my confidence – and it has – but I’ve also gained some valuable insights into what is important to me as a person, helping me to manage relationships both at work and in my personal life.”

Asthma Australia Ltd was formed in October 2017, the merger of several Asthma Foundations across QLD, NSW, Victoria, ACT and SA with the former Asthma Australia Inc. I was delighted to have been offered the opportunity by the Board to lead the amalgamation and realise the potential of a single, larger organisation.

Sue helped me strategize how to move forward a project that had to travel the winding path of corporate politics.  She helped me break down into easy steps which level of the organization to start with and how to gather data to help me move this project forward so it could actually happen.   This project included 9 leaders with revenue in excess of 45,000. Thank you, thank you.  Words cannot express my gratitude.”
