  • Background

    The dawning moment in my life - when it became clear I would never play professional football for my beloved Dockers (no, it was never EVER going to happen, because for one you actually need football talent) - triggered me to pivot and find another path. So inspired by my deep sense of wonder about how we can make things around us just a little bit better, I immersed myself in the world of Learning Excellence.

    20+ years on, I'm fortunate enough to have worked with leaders, teams and organisations across a diverse range of industries, helping them navigate their path to being better leaders and leading better teams. Through coaching, challenging and supporting their journeys, I assist individuals and organisations to create the people, processes and environment that allow their "excellence" to flourish.

    Every day I support, develop and challenge leaders on their journey to inspire and drive their teams and organisations. I've had the great pleasure to work with key leaders within organisations such as:

  • Australia Post
  • BHP
  • Foretescue Minerals Group
  • Woodside
  • Regis Aged Care
  • Rio Tinto
  • and a number of government departments
  • My work in supporting leaders has involved:

  • Leadership Development programs
  • Team Development creating, supporting and enhancing highly effective teams
  • Team Alignment programs

  • What We Care About

    The issues we face today in organisations and globally will require unprecedented leadership and unprecedented levels of co-operation concurrently, to mobilise communities and organisations.

    A New Paradigm for the Future

    To make progress on our most significant issues, we need a new paradigm—one that inspires us to:

  • Act constructively in a values-driven way
  • Empower each other to take responsibility and accountability at all levels of the organisation
  • Shift our focus from problem-centric to solution-centric (positive change)
  • Make progress on the toughest issues and challenges
  • Create an environment of breakthrough performance, and high levels of commitment and learning
  • Liberate ourselves from old ways of thinking about how to manage and lead people
  • Develop systems intelligence.
  • As the industrial age wanes, new possibilities emerge to create a different paradigm of leadership. I propose a new paradigm that draws from many sources and builds on them in an integrative way.

    The mechanistic, industrial paradigm has been in existence since the latter part of the 18th century and continues to shape society and modern organisations. It is a long, slow journey, yet incredibly worthwhile.
