Are you a Control Freak?

Realise it or not, one of the first things that happens when you take a promotion into a leadership role, is that you can turn into a control freak. It is easier to do everything yourself rather than teaching those in your team what you know.

Are you struggling in a new leadership role? There's so much to do and the team keeping dropping the ball. Sending work back to the team to redo is making them resentful. Redoing it yourself is making you resentful.

The result is you become busier and busier and this will have a flow on impact in your life, your relationships and on your health.

As you start doing more and more, your team will lose confidence and/or interest. You will find that your team aren't paying attention, making suggestions or coming up with new ideas and will find any excuses not to attend team meetings.

Leading a team is harder than you thought!

My clients are

  • new leaders - who need to change their thinking to step into this more senior role.
  • leaders and their teams who want to work better together.
  • leaders of leaders and their teams who want to learn new skills to outperform previous results.

Exceptional leaders and their teams' thrive. Results speak for themselves. Leading looks effortless.

Leadership done well is the single biggest leverage point for great teams and great results.

Through a series of workshops, which focus on leadership skill development and working together as a team; plus executive coaching and mastermind groups, you and your team upgrade and upskill in how to lead and how to team well together for exceptional results.

My expertise helps you build focus, perspective, behavioural and conversational agility. With your team, move from disconnected to connected, from overwhelm to control, and from friction to flow.

I am obsessed with leaders that lead well, teams that flow, and organisations that are inclusive.

As an executive and leadership coach, trainer, facilitator and author, I have spent the last couple of decades developing others and helping them bring out their best and their team's best.

Prior to that I had a long corporate career and lead and been part of many teams.

What that means is that I already know you and your teams. I know what you are struggling with and I know what you want to achieve. I’ve been helping leaders and teams engage, collaborate and perform for a long time.

My expertise helps you discover what it is you need to focus on. What perspective you need to take. Together, with your team, move from disconnected to connected, from being overwhelmed to in control, and from friction to flow.

Exceptional leaders are key to organisational success and more important than ever. Become one now!

Why levelling up is crucial to your career

You wanted a leadership role because you love what you do and know deep down that you can do a good job as a leader.It's not what you expected though. Now you are going to more meetings, including those with team members so that you stay across everything and ensure the team is getting it right. You’re starting work earlier, finishing later, then working again after the family is in bed....

Testimonials

The best part of executive coaching for me was having the opportunity to speak to someone who is able to provide an independent and fresh perspective while also providing thought provoking questions that made me look at all aspects of my thinking, reasoning, decisions, actions and behavior. In addition, being provided with new resources / tools for the ‘toolbox’ that I can implement within my role as a team member and also in my role as a manager. The conversations with Maree felt natural and like I had known her for quite a while, I felt comfortable sharing my thinking.

I learnt more about myself personally and my leadership style. Being given practical resources / tools that I could implement in between coaching sessions was fantastic and allowed me to see tangible results.

The information and resources provided will continue to assist me not just in all avenues of my career but in my day-to-day life. It has provided me with insight in to how I currently perform, what could do with a tweak and how I wish to grow further in my career in the future. 

If you're like me - at a cross roads in your career, coaching provides you with ‘food for thought’ and helps in making decisions regarding your next step. It has also benefited me in my current role of managing a team who are undergoing significant change and has helped to identify how to build a strong, cohesive and functional team environment.
