Shadow Coaching offers intensive and ‘in the moment’ coaching.


As the name implies, the Executive Leader is shadowed by their Executive Coach for a period of time, typically in half days and whole days. Stacey offers the Executive Leader immediate reflection, observation, feedback and coaching as they progress through their business as usual activities, creating opportunities for insights to take place in real-time, for immediately improved outcomes and for the ‘truth’ to become clear to the leader.


Shadow coaching is used in situations:

  • Where significant behavioural change is required


  • Where an Executive may need some outside support due to a specific set of circumstances or scenarios they need to navigate effectively


  • Where an Executive needs to make accelerated progress in a new role or to their next role


Please Note: Shadow Coaching is offered to senior executives by application only.

I have lent on Stacey over the last 10 years for great advice, leadership development and coaching.

Stacey is someone with a natural understanding of what is required in the moment to lead.

Stacey has an acute understanding of what leaders, teams and the world have experienced, with an ability to find the lessons, the wins, and how we can use this for future benefit.


Assistant Secretary, Commercial Providers

Australian Department of Health


Stacey’s experience, advice and availability to act as a sounding board has helped me to build resilience and develop effective strategies for responding to issues as they arise.

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.

I have had the incredible opportunity to work with Stacey as my professional coach over the last 9 months. It has been a roller coaster of a challenge at work and with Stacey’s guidance and skill I feel I have been able to keep my head above water and make better and more informed decisions. We can all work hard and fulfil our leadership roles but with the help of Stacey I think I have been able to rise to the challenges and perform with more purpose, and focus. I highly recommend investing in yourself to enable you to reflect and continue to grow in your professional world. Thank you so much Stacey.
