I work with leaders who aspire to make a difference in the world. These leaders are often leading significant transformation or change initiatives in their teams, business units, organisations and industries.

I’m obsessed with supporting leaders to lead in possibility so they can inspire, influence and have impact.

In this VUCA world, leaders must navigate the complexities of globalisation, technological advancement, social interconnectivity, massively accelerating change and a multi-generational workforce.

An Egon Zendor report in May 2017 found that for those in VP roles and above, it takes most people 6 months or longer to make an impact in their roles, and for CEO’s it can be much longer. And according to the Harvard Business Review, at least 2 out of 5 new CEOs fail in their first 18 months on the job. While Executives who get the right support get up to speed in about half the time and continue to perform.

In order for leaders to inspire, influence and engage their teams so they can perform and deliver in a world of change, they must develop their practice of leadership.

I specialise in working with aspirational leaders, and leaders who seek to make a difference, leading change and transformation.

• The confidence in themselves and their strengths to support them in any situation.

Executive & Leadership Coaching

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 am deeply appreciative of her empathetic and collaborative style and would not hesitate to undertake further coaching with her.

Working with Stacey in the Leading Possibility Executive Coaching Program, I found her experience and insights incredibly valuable. I learned strategies for maintaining perseverance and momentum in an organisation with a challenging culture and behaviours. Having a regular check-in with someone outside the organisation kept me accountable, provided me objective advice, support and encouragement to keep me going.
