I love working with people to stretch their thinking and explore new possibilities. I’m committed to helping the people I coach achieve positive change in their lives – identifying the areas for growth that will make the biggest difference to their leadership, confidence, career, and/or wellbeing. I help my coaching clients take a step back and get clarity about their personal vision, then make changes that will move them toward that.
I’m an accomplished coach and facilitator, with extensive experience in operational and strategic management. Having worked as part of an executive team myself, I have a first-hand appreciation of the challenges faced when people transition to leadership roles, or from middle management to senior management. I’m also a mother of two young children, which gives me a first-hand understanding of how difficult it can be to achieve ‘balance’.
Julie's coaching so far has proved invaluable to me. Julie stretches my thinking to come up with solutions to complex problems ... drawing out the skills or talents that I do not expose readily."
I am credentialed as an Associate Certified Coach with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and an accredited Organisational Coach with Institute of Executive Coaching and Leadership (IECL). I also have a Master of Business Administration and Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology.
My commitment to coaching as a profession is demonstrated through my role as President for the ICF’s SA Branch. The ICF is the leading global coaching organisation, dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high professional standards, providing independent certification, and building a network of credentialed coaches.
