Your LEADERS' make the difference.

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!

She knew the team – heck she’d been part of them. And now, she was their leader. Amy had been exceptional in her old role. She was a... Read more...

Testimonials

Maree is delightful, reassuring and very insightful. In less than an hour she helped me to find what in hindsight was an obvious solution to my problem, but which I was too emotionally involved in my situation to see.
