Coaching Solutions

Has your career or business dream become reality? Did you really stretch and delightfully surprise yourself with what you achieved? Or did your outcomes fall below your expectations?

What did you achieve? What didn’t happen? Were there opportunities you allowed slip through your fingers? Did you under-value yourself in terms of pricing or salary? Were there times you could have positioned yourself to stand out but didn’t?

How do you feel about that? Frustrated? Ashamed? Angry? Do you blame others?

And what price did you pay for not recognising or living up to your potential?

Now ask yourself, Do I want more of the same next year? If not, it’s time to shift the game.

In order to do that, we need to pay attention to who we really are and how we’re showing up when we lead our businesses, our organisations, our teams. We need to look at self-leadership or ‘leading from within’.

In my experience, self-leadership is the toughest leadership gig of them all.

Often we are pulled in different directions, with our logical and strategic brain consciously telling us what we need to do to have the career or business we aspire to while our old patterns and habits covertly undermine our efforts. For 70% of people, one of those old patterns could be the Imposter Syndrome which convinces talented people like you that you aren’t good enough. How crazy is that!

Understanding the blueprint for your particular mindset and aligning it with a future that excites and inspires you is a key focus of the coaching programme “From Sabotage to Success”.

Change the game with “From Sabotage to Success”

It’s not for the fainthearted. It is both a challenging and uplifting programme that creates a safe environment and brings you face-to-face with what stands in your way. I then help you identify the cause and a practical strategy to move beyond its limitations.

Why work with me?

Having experienced the Imposter Syndrome for more than 20 years, I know personally that we can have the best plans and still not manage to bring them to fruition. I also know from experience that we can change that pattern to enjoy the career and business we aspire to.

Along with my practical experience of the imposter syndrome and moving past it’s significant and negative impact on my career, I bring expertise in human behaviour, branding and business acumen which helps you understand your business environment and to effectively position yourself to achieve the career or business you dream of.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for coaching me.  I wouldn’t have had the courage – or even the thought really – to have the  discussion with my boss about really stepping up as a manager if it weren’t for you and the work we’ve done together over the last 6 months. I’m now managing 3 teams and I realise I’m in new territory now –  you’re the best compass around! Ellen, Senior Manager, TAL

What Our Client Say

  • “Suzanne… what can I say… your presentation on Thursday morning was fabulous!! It was funny, insightful, personal… just awesome. Clearly you’ve found your thing! ”

    Jen Dalitz, Speaker, Consultant, Author
  • “It is rare to hear a speaker who seemed so completely unafraid of being real. And still wonderfully entertaining. My big take out – the cost of not being true to yourself, not just for you personally, but for the organisation you are part of and the people around you. No more ‘wallflower’ occasions for me.”

    Kate McCallum, Financial Adviser
  • “I was one of the few men at the womens networking breakfast yesterday – I thought your presentation was outstanding – very honest and impactful. Authentic leadership is central to much of the work I do and I commend you on your personal leadership.”

    Saul Brown, 2b consulting
  • “Love the imposter syndrome. I can see so much of myself. Love to be part of the research.”

    Grant Murphy, Cover-More Travel Insurance
  • “Very practical strategies and insights into how to make a real difference. Loved it!”

    Hughes, General Manager, Conference & Events, ASFA
  • “Suzanne, great insights. I have taken away that it is important to value myself a bit more within my organisation.”

    Mark Powl, Cuna Mutual
  • “Everything you said rang true to me. I am always thinking that I am not good enough. Now I feel I have some tools to go away and stop the imposter syndrome.”

    Sandra McDonald, Skilling & Quality Co-ordinator, Asteron
