From Chief Executive to aspiring team leader, everyone benefits from intelligent supportive confidential coaching conversations to confidently think through complex situations and decisions.

Some things cannot be learned in a group. Many highly capable people tell me they have done the courses, they have all the books – and sometimes they have read them. They now seek a coach who is an expert at bringing about lasting positive behavioural change.

Whether you want to generate strategic ideas to take to the next level, reduce stress and improve sleep, prepare for promotion, reappraise your career options, get the best out of a difficult individual or shift systemic power blocks, an intelligent, experienced executive coach can help you change things,

In the Age of Complexity

Disruptions demanding innovation and agility are exciting – but particularly challenging for leaders. For Australia, 2019 is also a year of mixed messages regarding the global economy, markets and our national economy. Good managers and leaders always factor in change and a degree of uncertainty to their decision making. However, our media is full of national and international political uncertainty, plus trade uncertainty associated with Brexit, China and USA heaps pressure on executive managers.

Leadership more than ever requires a New Mind

Executive Coaching for Conscious Leadership is a positive, proactive one-to-one and team approach. It’s about helping managers become real leaders who think with a New Mind.

Top people are not automatically good leaders – but they can be. We combine the best executive coaching with business strategy and people-engagement to help competent and motivated managers lead business success. Leaders need and seek a few highly professional confidential relationships where they can take time out, be completely open, reflect, gain powerful insight and real leadership growth. An industry mentor or a small confidential forum of CEO peers is immensely valuable. But no one can help you cut through to what matters like a well matched executive coach.

Coaching with the right coach will help you become a better leader – better relationship behaviours achieves better business results. Culture enables business. Have a look at the testimonial/feedback page.

Coaching with the right coach will help you devise and implement a career strategy to create a groundswell of positive opinion about your suitability for promotion.

Help your people flourish with our individually tailored program. A one-to-one confidential genuine relationship with a high level external executive coaching allows for candid reflection and challenging feedback.

Leaders learn best through dealing with real people and real-time situations. Senior staff value genuine feedback about their relationship building from a leading psychologist who cuts through to reality.

Top execs relish the insight and enjoy the business success and career openings they deliver. And many report that coaching has provided substantial personal support through difficult times and transformed both their professional and personal lives.

Few Board members have experienced executive coaching themselves. They may not have experienced the benefit of a coach for executive managers to maintain energy, drive, confidence and resilience. Choose a coach with the depth and presence you need, who can match you.

Executive staff enjoy coaching sessions, responding richly to the empowering relationship, the rare opportunity to discuss work and life concerns and for clear constructive feedback from someone whose expertise they can trust. While new managers seek skills development, senior staff goals may be around issues of meaning and purpose, global ethics, organisational vision and the best way they can and their organisations can contribute to the planet.

What colleagues say about Dr Cecily Moreton:

“You are warm, intelligent, and practical – real change happens.”

“You are very good at giving very clear feedback – it may be tough, but your ego is not driving it so it is really helpful and builds self esteem.”

“Your work looks practical, but you are always working at a much deeper level. There are many polished practitioners, but they don’t have the knowledge, depth and wisdom you bring”.

“You help people achieve their goals, but you also get them tuned in to who they actually are. You ask them about where they should be, what their particular life path is, what are they here to do. You bring people home to themselves. That is why they become true leaders.”
