These are challenging times, and leaders are being asked to step up. Your people are craving leadership right now. We have a world responding to a health crisis of unprecedented scale that is creating impacts in almost every dimension of our lives, including our work.

For some people, they are busier than ever before, for others their work environments have changed dramatically in only a few days.

You need to demonstrate self-leadership and resilience, while coping with significant change and uncertainty. Your team will be looking to you for direction and guidance and may now be largely ‘remote’ from you.

Yet the business is still operating and you and your team need to stay connected, continue to deliver and maintain high performance.

You are a leader, and now more than ever, it’s time to stand up and lead.

Are you:

  • A leader trying to figure out what to focus on, and how to best lead your team?

  • Are you feeling too reactive, lacking direction and next steps?

  • Or are you wondering about how to be visible and keep your team focused and on task, even if they are working remotely?

  • Are you wondering if you’re doing enough to lead and support your people and business right now?

  • Do you wish you had more ideas and tools to lead this turbulent transformation?

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.

Prior to the 1000Leaders initiative, I had a number of areas of my Leadership that were just ticking along without having been given any focus or development. The 12-week program tackled a different topic each week and provided a coaching session that enabled me to drill down where I had questions or needed support. It shone the spotlight on a number of critical areas to high performance and helped me create a practical and clear pathway to a better and more deliberate approach. It’s helping build both my skills and my brand. I feel more capable and more confident and I have additional tools to draw upon as a part of my Leadership.

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.

 Stacey was truly inspirational during her speaker session and provided such valuable insight and experience. Stacey was a pleasure to work with and was willing to give her time in an interview which will allow our Torrens University students access to her extensive industry knowledge. Stacey’s strong belief in the connection between industry and education is clearly evident in the support she has given us.

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.
