How I Bring Value

The Problem I solve

The Promise I make





Business leaders get so consumed with day-today running of their businesses they lose sight of their wellbeing and need for ongoing personal development. Forgetting that they can’t be good at everything, they spend time working on tasks that would be much better done by someone else. Not having a clear idea of their personal strengths, they spend 80% of their time pushing themselves to achieve tasks for which they are not suited, leading to exhaustion and even burnout. When stress levels rise, their weaknesses show up and sabotage their good intent. They lack the time to think, reflect and gain perspective and are often on a slippery slope which can lead to the failure of their businesses.

Through developing their authentic leadership style, they can play to their strengths, create an environment where everyone in their organisation can do their best work, through mindful daily practice continually grow, learn, reflect, refresh and innovate, inspiring followership and building a sustainable business and a better future for all.

Barb is a coach with insight, humility and purpose. She is an extremely good listener and customizes her coaching style to your desired end goal. Working with Barb made me reflect more effectively because she gave me tools and ideas that made me think deeper. As a small business owner and HR professional she opened up ideas and avenues I hadn’t thought of.  Don’t be fooled by her gentle unassuming demeanor. She is a solid professional who is self-aware and takes note of everything necessary to help you achieve your desired goals.

I highly recommend her services to businesses and entrepreneurs growing their businesses.
