In this VUCA world, leaders must navigate the complexities of globalization, technological advancement, social interconnectivity, massively accelerating change and a multi-generational workforce.
Coaching is a powerful tool to develop the potential of people, modify behaviours and drive business success. The 2018 HCI ICF Study found that coaching activities (e.g., one-on-one coaching, team coaching & work group coaching with a professional coach practitioner) are rated as the most helpful in achieving the goals of change management initiatives.
The 2017 ICF study found that organizations with strong coaching cultures indicate recent revenues above that of their industry peer group and report higher employee engagement (61% and 53%, respectively).
In order for leaders to inspire, influence and engage their people so they can perform and deliver in a world of change, they must develop their practice of leadership. The development of a coaching approach is a key part of this.
This 2017 study also found that one of the biggest impediments to professional coaching was coaches who lacked coach specific training.
When I’m working with leaders, experts, mentors, trainers, coaches and consultants, I commonly find they want and need help to develop the following key areas of leadership coaching practise:

WHAT SOME HAVE SAID
I have just finished 5 days of training with Stacey Ashley on The Coaching Leader program to become a qualified coach. It is such a pleasure to write this testimonial for Stacey as I enjoyed the 5 days so much. Usually, this is a 5-day intense course done in Sydney, but due to Covid and no travel, Stacey turned it into an online program, which if I am honest I was a little nervous about. I wondered how I would go on a screen, so focused as there is a lot of content to take in for 8 hours at a time.
It was absolutely fantastic! Stacey is so organised, efficient and aware of your energy levels. She seemed to know when to break, when to change from learning to coaching and instead of drained at the end of each day, I was so energised. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and would recommend it to anyone thinking of developing their coaching skills as a leader or professional coach.
So a little about what I loved about Stacey’s style. She has had a huge life experience, so her knowledge and stories to help you relate to different circumstances and outcomes were very valuable. She’s incredibly good at what she does, she is patient, empathetic, encouraging and gives such good feedback to help you be the best you can be. She has a great sense of humour which is important to me as I don’t do boring, it takes the fun away for me.
The course is so well laid out, so easy to use and follow, so much incredibly good content that I started using immediately in my own practice. I got more out of these 5 days than I could of hoped for and I thank Stacey very much for making it such an enjoyable experience. I would recommend Stacey as 5 out of 5 stars if there is such a rating.
Managing Director, Tracey Mathers Pty Ltd.
I highly recommend The Coaching Leader to anyone who is leading in any capacity or has a passion to lead. My initial intention in undertaking the program was really about personal growth with the hope that I might glean a few insights to help me feel more confident in leading people. However, the information and tools and skills I have developed have far exceeded my expectations. After 5 intensive days, I have the foundational skills to help people come up with solutions that they have been able to find themselves to a multitude of different scenarios.
While Stacey is very professional, she is also authentic with a great sense of humour and generous with her thoughts and knowledge. The opportunity to meet different people in vastly different fields has also been wonderful and highly valuable. I have been very energised to continue to grow as a coaching leader!

Stacey’s coaching style is reassuring, practical and above all very effective. Within 15 mins spent with her, I had an action plan in place that I could immediately implement.
Stacey is also a real noble and humble human being and loves to give back in any way she can! Her 1000Leaders program was incredible. I shared it with my colleagues at Megaport at a fraction of the price. It was educational, pragmatic and effective. Her passion to make leadership skills training accessible to as many professionals as possible is admirable.
I’d highly recommend Stacey as a coach and facilitator! She is awesome.
Director People & Culture
I first met Stacey last year at an event and I wanted to get to know her because she had just written a book which is something I talked about doing for years. Stacey came across genuine and authentic and was happy to help out and offer advice.
She shared some amazing tips and took the time to get to know me which helped me shift some blocks. I admire Stacey's tenacity and drive which gave me the courage to finish writing the book.
Her book is amazing where she provides tools, tips and exercises where you can step up and be the leader you wished you had.
Thank you, Stacey, for sharing your pearls of wisdom and your book is not only a practical guide but a must for anyone who wants to succeed in life and in business.
Career & Culture Coach
Stacey Ashley worked closely with my team at CSIRO during a period of innovation and transition. She was acutely perceptive of the stresses on the team and particularly useful to me during this period of time. Stacey has strong theoretical foundations but is pragmatic and sensitive in her approach. I highly recommend Stacey and would work with her again without hesitation. Elizabeth Eastland Director of Entrepreneurship UNSW
I worked with Stacey over a six-month period to explore alternative pathways to problem-solving and people management within my business. Stacey was an expert guide to help me consider a variety of solutions which were not automatically top of mind. I found the process extremely enlightening, Stacey has a deep appreciation of business management which resulted in our conversations often extending beyond the scope of what I expected. I am deeply appreciative of her empathetic and collaborative style and would not hesitate to undertake further coaching with her in the future.

Given Stacey’s expertise in leadership, executive coaching and change we invited her to chair HRD Magazine’s HR Tech Summit. She was delightful to work with in the lead up to the event, and expertly led the discussion on Your tech journey: questions to ask before purchasing HR Tech. She is an engaging speaker, adept at encouraging audience participation and able to roll with the flow of an event. She is energetic and insightful, and uses real life examples to ensure the content is relevant and meaningful for the audience. We would be delighted to work with her again.
Stephanie Campanale, Executive Producer, HR Summit series
I have had the privilege to work directly for Stacey and now see her having developed a successful career as a thought leader, coach and mentor in leadership. She is a very strong and thoughtful leader who was able to empower people of diverse backgrounds and bring out the best in them. It is no surprise to see her translate that into an ability to help thousands of aspiring and experienced leaders reach their maximum potential. An inspiring career.
I want to talk about making a positive and lasting impact here because that is exactly what Stacey has done for me.
My first interaction with Stacey was when I took her Certificate IV in Workplace and Business Coaching in 2015 - hands down one of the best leadership courses I've ever taken.
She has, both in person and as a voice I pull from memory, helped me over the years to:
I can't thank Stacey enough for the positive and lasting impact that she has had on me.
