To Lead Confidently Enables:

#1  Greater self-awareness means you’ll make better choices and decisions that yield positive impacts.  By being true to who you are and aligning with what you value boosts confidence and performance.  We must first have a deep understanding of our-self as a foundation to understanding others more successfully and in today’s world where it’s all about connecting and collaborating with others, building effective relationships is vital to your success.

#2  Feeling and fulfilled and energised. When you are clear about what your bigger purpose is and what you stand for, you’ll be playing a bigger game.  Confidence comes from leveraging your your talents into strengths and doing more of what you are passionate about.  It is energizing and inspiring.  Imagine the difference you can make today and the legacy you’ll leave for the future.  Let your purpose define you.

#3  Being human and authentic is all about being true to who you are, showing vulnerability and bringing all of you to the workplace – that is head, heart and spirit.  You are you and we need you to be authentic and share your uniqueness.  You are born to stand out and shine and you’ll feel so much more confident when you’re not trying to blend in or be someone you’re not. 

“I feel your coaching programme works really well for me as it addresses the real issues of my day to day work.  I can apply it and add value to the company and see immediate results. I am so glad that I have you coaching me. You have played a critical role to stretch me out of my comfort zone helping me to grow and realise my potential. I can’t believe how much I’ve achieved over the 8 months with your guidance. Honestly, I wouldn’t think it was possible when I started the programme.” LH – Auckland

Lead Confidently – Mentoring Programme

To lead authentically is to honour your natural strengths, talents, passions and abilities.  It is an evolutionary journey where you’re in charge and my role is to guide the conversation to help you awaken the inner leader, connect with your greater purpose and help you express it by taking inspired action.

The most effective results are gained by making the commitment to a 12 month coaching programme because it takes time to integrate news ways of think and being.  Learning as you go, taking time to reflect deeply on what’s working and what isn’t, being open to break through into your courage zone with a coach at your side means you grow faster, achieve your goals sooner and make a bigger difference to those you lead.

“I have been fortunate to work with Jo in both a personal coaching and facilitation capacity. Jo has played a critical role in my career journey and I believe I’m a confident authentic leader as a result of her contribution to my leadership growth.  Her passion to install executives with a greater level of confidence continues to manifest in some amazing outcomes.  I have valued Jo’s deep and present listening skills, as often as a CEO it is difficult to discuss situations within the realm of the business.  She has pushed me to lean into situations outside my comfort zone enabling me to be the best version of myself by making good choices.  Without a doubt I would not have achieved my current role without her continued belief, guidance and valuable coaching advice. ” Nadine Tereora

“Jo has had an enormous impact on my career. Starting as a highly raw and naïve country boy I had no idea about what good management looked like or that it would be something that I could ever aspire to achieve. Jo was instrumental is coaching me in becoming an authentic leader. She taught me how to stay true to myself and my values while crafting awareness and leadership tools that allows me to lead others from different backgrounds. She both personally coached me and also led by example, backing up her words with her day to day deeds. Jo is a highly experienced leader and senior executive but yet she has retained that passion and energy of a new leader. If you are looking to develop your leadership, coaching or company culture skills then I’d highly recommend talking to Jo.”  Evan Bateup Group HR Manager Vista Entertainment

“Thanks Jo, it was great working with you today, and very enlightening for me.  That was a great session and I immediately put the learnings into action yesterday afternoon with mapping out a plan for our focus over these next 2 quarters.”  EC – Auckland
