Are you an executive or senior leader who wants to…

Becoming an executive coach was perhaps always in Rebecca’s stars.

She grew up listening to thought leaders who shaped her beliefs around mindset and positive thinking. Later, armed with a psychology background, curiosity and an ability to deeply connect with people, she became a global people and culture executive and senior leader who realised in 2020 that she needed to circle back to what she absorbed growing up.

From lived and learned experience, Rebecca understands the opportunities and obstacles of life at the top in business. To help you step into greatness, Rebecca can design a bespoke coaching program to help you step into greatness. She’s led teams, built capability, been agile and implemented change effectively to drive business success. She’s an experienced and accredited international executive coach energised by partnering with senior leaders to enable them to improve their self-regulation to increase their self-awareness, effectiveness and wellbeing.

Rebecca generally coaches leaders in 4 different areas supporting leaders.

Coaching Style

With a background in psychology, Rebecca helps you see yourself and others differently to support purposeful change.

The feedback Rebecca receives from executives and senior leaders is that her coaching style helps them increase their self awareness to understand their cognitive, emotional and behavioural patterns, which enables positive behavioural change where they increase their influence, effectiveness, focus and wellbeing by playing big/stepping into their greatness. They have more confidence, presence, ability to challenge and agility in the way they relate to others which increases their impact. So many senior leaders underestimate the contribution they can make and get locked in unhelpful patterns of interacting with their peers, boss, the board, or stakeholders. Rebecca helps them understand their triggers/what presses their buttons and reframe the way they see themselves and others.  

With a background in psychology and coaching qualifications, Rebecca helps you see yourself and others differently to evolve your view of your current challenges and opportunities. You’ll learn how to decipher your own mindset and behaviours to truly own your influence on others. You’ll develop the skills to better interpret colleagues’ behaviours and optimise your collaboration style.

By capitalising on your strengths, Rebecca will give you the tools to adapt your energy levels to increase agility and support your wellbeing. Applying the latest research in cognitive behavioural coaching (CBC) and neuropsychology, Rebecca can offer guidance on the personal practices to apply that enhance your mental and physical resilience to enable you to thrive.

Coaching Method

As a former executive and senior leader, Rebecca knows what it’s like to walk in your shoes. Rebecca is empathic and authentic coach. She is also commercial, direct and results focused.

Rebecca’s coaching approach involves:

  1. Meeting you for a free chemistry session to establish rapport and best fit. We discuss the current context that has led up to coaching and your potential coaching goals.
  2. A strengths psychometric assessment and a 360 review from a select group of key peers, direct reports and stakeholders to seek feedback on how you are currently applying your strengths at work. This is conducted via an online assessment and/or Rebecca undertaking 1:1 interviews with key people you work with.
  3. An initial three-way review with you and your internal coaching sponsor (e.g. typically your manager) to set your coaching goals and define measures of success. Then at the end of the program we hold a three-way review session to revisit and assess goal attainment and discuss your key learnings overall.
  4. A standard coaching package of 12 hours of one-on-one coaching over 6-8 months which equates to x8 1.5-hour sessions. Rebecca will help you identify actions to put into place between sessions to maintain your focus and momentum over time. Rebecca does offer smaller coaching packages where required – the Reset package (x2 sessions / 3 hours), or the Step Up package (x4 sessions / 6 hours).

Women Who Thrive group coaching program

Rebecca has designed a bespoke group coaching programme for female executives and leaders called ‘Women Who Thrive’. It is based on her own experiences of being a female senior leader and the common areas she coaches senior women around. It is delivered in both Australia and EMEA.

I cannot thank Rebecca enough for the executive coaching support and insights shared with me. I came to Rebecca at a time where my confidence and my enjoyment of being an executive were at an all-time low. I was unsure if coaching would be able to pull me out of the rut I was in. However, Rebecca’s coaching style and psychologically based method was extremely effective, helping me to refocus my energies to be confident and content in myself. She guided me to discover things about myself that have enabled me to increase both my contribution at the executive table and find joy again in the work that I do.=

– Executive Manager (Non-for-profit sector)

I really enjoyed working with Rebecca! The coaching process provided me with the opportunity to explore my thought processes and behavioural patterns, then change my internal dialogue, creating space for me to become a more confident and effective senior leader. The insights and challenges Rebecca provided supported a journey in which the original goals and challenges I had set for myself evolved, making the process a much more introspective personal evolution. She has led me to create a much more cohesive vision of myself and helped me see the value I bring to the workplace both now and in the future.

– Senior leader (Non-for-profit sector)

I was starting a new senior role with a company and was keen to start with my best foot forward, Bec was recommended to me through a friend. Over the last year her coaching and support has made a significant difference in my approach at work; the practical counsel has enabled me to turn around some challenging situations and relationships at work. The approach Bec takes is grounded in her deep understanding of human behaviour and I leave our sessions with not just a clear set of practical actions to help me in achieving my next goal, but also a deeper insight into myself that goes beyond the surface issues. I feel Bec has equipped me with some valuable tools & habits to deal with future situations. I can't thank her enough for the difference she has made, as I navigate the next phase of my career. I am grateful to have Bec as a coach in my corner that I can reach out to here when I need extra support for the next challenge that comes my way.

– Senior leader (Private sector)

Rebecca coached me to understand how to access greater potential in my professional and personal life through an improved growth mindset. Her gentle yet insightful enquiry during our coaching sessions assisted me to understand limiting patterns in my thinking and behaviour. Working on them with Rebecca, has increased my effectiveness and influence in the workplace and helped me to become a better senior leader. Rebecca’s ability to build rapport, provide a safe coaching environment and useful resources ensured that each session was helpful and effective. As an academic in a senior leadership position, I have grown so much from Rebecca’s influence and advice.

– Senior leader (Higher education sector)

Rebecca’s coaching style supported me to identify my goals and held me accountable to follow through on the related actions. In our sessions, we delved into my deeper limiting beliefs to unlock my potential and improve my self-confidence overall. Throughout the program I have grown professionally and personally, and I highly recommend Rebecca!

– Executive (Government)

Rebecca is a master of the simple question well asked at the right time. Her coaching has prompted me to think more deeply about my leadership style and pay attention to what really matters.

– Senior leader (Non-for-profit sector)

I really enjoyed working with Rebecca as a coach as she helped me increase my self-awareness and self-efficacy. It felt like a partnership where we were working together towards a common goal. I especially valued the strengths-based approach she utilised in all aspects of the coaching. She shared many insights and pragmatic actions which helped me improve various challenging situations I faced.

It also includes the leader undertaking a Strengths and/or personality psychometric assessment, a debrief session to support the creation of a development program and subsequent coaching sessions.

bring to enhance my coaching experience?

To understand yourself better to evolve as a leader, it is important to remain curious about the feedback you receive around your leadership style. Knowing how other people experience you is key.
