About Julie

Julie is an accomplished leadership coach, with extensive management experience and a passion for growing individuals and teams. She is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coach Federation (ICF) - the only global professional coaching body – and current President of ICF’s South Australia Branch.

With more than two decades of experience as a senior leader, mentor and coach, Julie is committed to coaching people to achieve personal and professional growth. Having worked as part of executive groups and managed teams of varying sizes, she has a first-hand appreciation and deep understanding of the challenges faced by leaders.

As a coach Julie is challenging and persistent, but in a supportive way. She helps her clients to clarify their thinking, find their own solutions and develop strategies they are committed to… then she inspires the determination required to make changes and become what they want to be. The measurable result from Julie’s coaching is a shift in attitude and behaviour: real transformational change.

Julie is also an engaging facilitator. Working with groups of 5 to 25, she confidently facilitates leadership development workshops, team development activities and strategic planning workshops. She has delivered in-house presentations for groups of up to 500 and spoken at national and international conferences.

Coaching Style

I’m passionate about the work that I do as a coach and facilitator.  I work with my clients to identify key strengths and target the areas for growth that will make the biggest difference to their performance and leadership, or quality of life. The impact of my coaching, as described by clients:

“Julie is an excellent coach – she has the skill of being able to bring out insights from your inner-self that you were unaware of and help you to take a new direction on the basis of this.”

“My coaching experience [with Julie] has had a profound effect on me. Julie’s coaching has made me reassess what I really want with my life, both professionally and personally.”

"I’d lost my mojo; Julie set me on a path to get it back.  She listened. She challenged. She armed me with tools. She broadened my thinking about my life, my work and ultimately, myself. Our coaching sessions made what had been a muddle in my head keeping me awake at night, merge into a clear way forward.”

“I was stuck … I had no focus and wasn’t sure where to turn next. Through coaching with Julie I feel centred, energised, relieved and ready to take action again.”

A Little Bit About Julie

I love working with individuals and groups to create the changes in thinking that have a positive impact on individual performance and team effectiveness. This often involves identifying or clarifying purpose, which increases the energy and impetus within the team and improves the team’s capacity for the future.

“I have had Julie working as a Coach with my senior management team over the past nine months during a time of significant change... Julie has been instrumental in maintaining and increasing the performance of the individuals and the team.”

I worked as an internal coach as part of my role at the Canberra Campus of the University of New South Wales – where I held senior leadership roles between 2003 and 2014 - and then set-up my own coaching and facilitation business when my family relocated to Adelaide in 2014.

My commitment to developing the profession of coaching is demonstrated through my involvement with the ICF, currently as President for the ICF’s South Australia Branch.
