“Successful leaders and winning teams are made, not born”

As a Board Chair, Director or Chief Executive Officer – Are you looking to get the leading edge from yourself and from your team? Are you playing your best game, cracking the threshold of your potential? As an experienced Board Chair, Director and CEO with over 20 year’s experience, THE most business-critical issue is ensuring you and your team are on top of your game.

As the health industry struggles to meet rising demand, in a time of limited resources, and with many leaders who are under prepared; it’s time for change. We need world class leaders. Our leadership development programs build leaders from the inside out, we focus on the individual’s specific needs and give them the learnings to be the best they possibly can. Focused, committed and aligned.

Having transformed an under-performing health service into an award winning one, I have personally faced the myriad of internal and external challenges leaders face and have captured the essence of the things that matter most.

At Leading in Health, we are passionate about doing the same for you. It’s time to get the best people into your business, performing at their optimal level, working collaboratively to produce the results you need.

We build the very best leaders and leadership teams; our aim is to create world-class leadership in your business.

Board Team Dynamics & Director Induction

The most fundamental element of leadership is for leaders to have a clear vision, observable direction and capacity to inspire and influence others to achieve it.

We recognize that the key leadership roles of the organization are different; governance as opposed to the day-to-day operational oversight of the business. Yet both need to maintain a clear focus on the strategic direction and deliver optimal performance. We collaborate with your board to assist in getting the right people at the table, oversee personalized and tailored induction, and land directors in the board room ready and eager to govern as a dynamic team.

The Board will be building a strong team dynamic, incorporating principles of emotional intelligence to enhance its capacity to communicate openly and collaboratively, engage in challenging conversations, and have compassion for, and take a holistic view of others. Building trust and respect for one another.

CEO Confidant Coaching

As Chief Executive Officer your success is critical to the performance of the business, its culture and your own career and reputation.

As Chief Executive Officer you sit at the nexus between the governance authority of the Board and the day-to-day operational needs of the business. Compounding this point of contact are the further obligations placed on you from a range of directions including governments, corporate necessity and consumer demands.

You are the vital link between all these pressures and it’s essential that you continually work on the business, meeting the challenges and expectations bestowed on you. To do this, continual self-reflection and development are key to keep you ‘in-front of the game’,  working with your own ‘personal confidant’ – somebody who’s been there, that you can trust to provide support, clarity and reassurance will lay the foundations for your success.

You are the vital link to business success.


Are you ready to gain measurable success?


Executive Leadership for Organisations, Teams and Individuals

Enhancing profitability and operational excellence can only be achieved with true engagement.

We work with your board, executive and leadership team to deliver dynamic leadership both at an individual and team level. We align team performance to business planning to ensure honest accountability and measurable success.

Our programs have been purposefully designed to enhance how leaders lead so they fully engage and achieve results through their people. Leaders today need more than just technical competence. They need self-awareness and the capacity to connect and engage with others. If leaders fail to do so, they often misuse their force or misunderstand their relationships, thereby creating cultures of compliance, mistrust and fear.

Strategic Planning & Implementation

At the heart of every vision and every business objective is a person who must execute it.

What could you achieve if you knew your Strategic Plan couldn’t fail?

We lead a contemporary approach to Strategic Planning and complement it with our unique Strategic Assurance Program to ensure your objectives are successfully defined, actioned and embedded in your organisation.

Our approach is highly dynamic and interactive to ensure you create the most compelling vision and plan for your business. Together, we develop the key metrics that are essential for the successful implementation of your vision and apply our unique approach to honest accountability, focused monitoring and outcome-based performance results to measure your success.

What if you knew you couldn't fail?


Honesty, Trust and Integrity

We are inspired by people who want to be the best version of themselves they can, to be vulnerable yet courageous as they learn, grow and create.
