I make life better by making life at work better.
This can mean anything from getting the people basics right, to the solving of a systemic or difficult people or team problem, to the introduction of complex organisational and cultural changes. Why do I do this? Because I know that the bit that makes work unpleasant usually is when people interactions start to go wrong. I love working with clients to help them resolve issues or put in place approaches so that the issues don’t arise in the first place, rather than for them to spend hours lying awake at night trying to work out how to move an issue (or person) forward.
There are lots of consultants out there; so how will you know if I am the right person to work with you and your business? Clients have described me as part confidante, part strategist, part tactician. Clients say that they have a sense of relief that things are being dealt with, and that they are no longer alone in trying to deal with an issue (particularly complex or long standing issues). They say that it is not just the quality of the advice but the depth of the advice. That they feel that they have someone on their side. In answer to the question – what do you do?
I work with either individual clients (usually via a coaching relationship) or organisations either at the team or organisational level. Sometimes I am working with a CEO on people strategy, a team on high performance and coaching individual employees, all in the same organisation. I can work in organisations for a discrete period of time or a specific project. Other times, it is an ongoing and varied relationship that evolves as the organisation evolves. I work as a human resources, culture & change and industrial relations consultancy for businesses in finance, manufacturing, resources, oil and gas, government, retail, services and not for profit sectors – both in Western Australia and nationally.
These include both smaller 100-500 employee organisations and large global businesses. I am also the author of Do What You Say You’ll Do (a book for new leaders and those reinventing their leadership styles).

It is a question that is asked the world over. That is, how to balance a meaningful career with having children or other caring responsibilities.
Far too often we get a case of envies when we look at the careers of others. More often than not we do this without actually asking ourselves if they are really the lives that we actually want and whether we are prepared to put in the work (and inevitable sacrifices) to get there.
According to the experts what you do first thing in the morning has a significant impact on the success of the rest of your day. In this series we ask our soloist community what rituals they use to kickstart their systems before getting down to work each day.
When you think of the amount of time and energy devoted to outrage at misinterpreted emails and texts, it’s worth understanding a bit behind what the brain does to help (or not).
