  • - ICG International Accredited Professional Master Coach

I had started a Degree in Counselling specialising in life coaching that was just taking way too long to complete. It wasn’t that I wanted quick wins or the magic bullet, but rather that I was impatient to get stuck into coaching and start making a difference in people’s lives sooner, rather than later. I decided to exit at Diploma level and went on the search. Soon after I came across The Coaching Institute (TCI). I joined TCI in December 2014, with the first real kick-off into my TCI journey at Foundations of Coaching Success (FOCS) in February 2015. I wasn’t too sure what to expect as I had been researching for just the right education facility to help me bring my coaching dream to life. Foundations weekend was such an inspiring experience, it was everything I had hoped it would be and it re-ignited my insatiable hunger to succeed in the field of professional coaching and personal development. I remember on my way back to Brisbane reflecting on the fact that I knew I was 100% in the right place and with the right people who would help me on my road to success. The fire in my belly had been re-lit and there was no way I was turning back!

I had always been interested in human behaviour and contemplated for a number of years to move into coaching and positive psychology. From deciding I was actually going to do it, it took me another year to make up my mind and I joined TCI in January 2015. Since then there was no turning back for me. Straight away I was amazed by the warmth and genuine care of the TCI community and the quality of the people TCI attracted. I felt like I had come home after a long time away and that I have the unique opportunity to be stretched and grow into the person I want to become. I decided that in order embrace that growth, I had to take immediate action and wasted no time offering coaching to friends and getting coached in return. I also started applying and teaching the principles at my workplace. I had no specific plan as to what my focus and business was going to be and allowed myself to practice and discover my own inner challenges and thinking that was holding me back whilst coaching others. WOW - what an amazing ride that has been so far! I have profoundly discovered so many things about me and am developing a deeper sense of compassion and love for myself and others all the time. At the same time I am learning how to step up, speak up and deliver on my promises to myself and others.

I’ve always been a believer of constant improvement. With 9 years under my belt as a graphic designer and a year into creating my own business as an online children’s book publisher, I decided that I needed to take it up another level. I’d hit a plateau and knew it was time for another learning curve. In July this year I joined a program facilitated by TCI alumni. During the program my mindset coach Teuila Reid, suggested I place myself in 5 uncomfortable situations within a week. I’d come across TCI and was curiously nervous to enquire. So making a phone call to TCI was 1 of my 5 uncomfortable situations. I came into the awesome campus, spoke to the lovely Fiona Ellis and signed up straight away. I knew that doing this would keep me on my toes and keep me growing. My goal for joining TCI is to incorporate everything I learn and merge it with all my graphic design knowledge. I want to share the power of visual communication and the value in design and creative thinking. Upgrading to Pro Coach has proven to be one of my better decisions. It’s provided me access to tools that have boosted my learning and application, especially in sales and marketing. I watched and read key learnings that the WOW team and my business mentor Deborah Kleinert recommended. I followed all instructions, rejigged my existing website, used my existing business cards and hit the ground running. Networking, networking, networking. I practiced Joe Pane’s 60 second speech, used it on heaps of people, got feedback, tweaked it, got more feedback, until I got it to something that resonated with myself and the people I met. It paid off!

I am an Opera Singer by profession, having performed nationally and internationally, and with some of the most incredible artists of our time. It is something that I am still and will always be passionate about. However, I have known for some time that this was not to be my sole path. Seeing ever increasing gaps in up-and-coming youth performers, it was in early 2014 I made the decision to devote my life to giving back my performance gifts and knowledge to aspiring performers, alongside my performing career. With cuts to Performing Arts training happening in universities across the globe, there are gaping holes becoming apparent in the training of the next generation of performers. The more I train up and coming artists, the more I see it. The skills upon completion of their University courses are lacking in the performers in the profession and neurotic, sabotaging behaviours are increasing. It is responsible for inferior skill building and technical proficiency in key areas as well as an unclear or unknown professional mindset and resilience strategies. To put the icing on the cake, the entertainment industry has recently made news headlines documenting some of the highest recorded levels of mental health issues and depression in ANY field. These are my colleagues, my friends and the performers I educate and this was where I made my choice to be a part of the decrease these statistics. The Coaching Institute is a large part of that journey and my own journey to disrupt the “traditions” and grow as the eternal student of life I love being. I have never been one to accept NO for an answer. I can often be heard telling the Universe to F%&* the rules and let’s DO THIS! With the incredible amounts of support and generous teaching value (INSATIABLY generous teaching value) given, TCI have handed me an endless fuel supply for the fire of someone who is already determined, passionate and even sometimes stubborn (totally owning it!). The best part? The TCI community are enjoying the passion arson adventures right alongside with you!

I have had many significant “aha” moments in my training with TCI, two of which come to mind. Firstly, I was crewing for Joe Pane at an Advanced Skills Training Session and he said some words at the beginning of the course that came from someone else but they changed my life, ‘I don’t love you because of what you can do for me, I don’t love you for what I can do for you, I love you because you exist’. These words empowered me because they gave me the language to express and give unconditional love to everyone, no matter who, no matter what. The second was at the Your Success weekend, when I had opened up about a very personal experience I had as a child and I still remember Sharon Pearson’s eyes as she said to me, “You know that that shouldn’t have happened to you. It is not your fault”. Something in her voice and tonality caused me to finally believe those words and the meaning they gave me. I was finally free from the past and it’s false guilt. It is a journey I walk every day. My past is now not my significance, nor is it not my identity. It is my past, and my past does not equal my destiny. My greatest successes and joys comes from young people being transformed through the coaching skills that TCI have provided me.

My introduction to TCI was through a weekend at Personal Power July 2014 with the talented and divine Joe Pane, now called Courage to be YOU! Returning to Australia only a few months earlier after living and working aboard for 5 years, I had taken a role which I was positive that I would spend my next 5-10 years sharing my awesomeness, making great money and then be able to leave that role to create the business of my dreams! The reality I was depressed, stressed out, living a great example of “the life of quiet desperation”. All the time thinking I needed to be the person right for this role and if I wasn’t then there was something wrong with me! Within 10mins of being in the room with Joe, I knew I was home. I was with my people and everything was going to be ok! I wasn’t crazy-I was human….I was also doing the best that I could at that time. The decision making process for me to say yes to me becoming a student (one of the BEST DECISIONS of my life thus far), came from knowing that no matter what I was going to come out the other side “a professional human being”, quote from Joe Pane himself.

TCI has given me a powerful reconnection with myself and I have regained my youthful creativity. The amazing TCI community also confirms that if I focus on lifting and working with others to become their best, my own is assured. I have now started a company, “Walking Strong Mentoring” (WSM). Focusing on helping people become their best. I am working with widows to help them rebuild their life after loss and be their best self as they parent and contribute to their communities. In all this, TCI is giving me a wonderful structure and support to initiate change in people, the most powerful and difficult change to ever make. I could not be in better hands than I am at TCI.

My passion has always been to help others develop to their full potential, and a real highlight was my first pro bono coaching session (before FOCS, because the welcome pack has all you need!). It was simply magic creating change within one session with another person – it made me realise how MANY people I can reach. Half a year into my journey, I'm still working full time in corporate, continuing my passion for singing, and being proud of the everyday life we have created at home with our daughters, age 12 and 15. And next to that I carve out hours to continue studying, to coach people and to link back into the TCI network. The future is bright – I continue making others follow their inner voice, reaching everyday satisfaction they had not thought possible. Through this, I will build a sustainable business that I can love running for the next 40 years (who would want to retire when you do what you love?), starting out with Australia and Denmark (where I lived for four decades), and taking it globally: creating this movement of good hearts who use the best of their abilities to create a great everyday life for themselves – and thereby those around them.

I completed Meta Dynamics Practitioner in July 2013 after experiencing NLP through a business group I had joined. I joined TCI when it was going through the some major, unexpected change, and the way I saw this being handled by Sharon and the team made me even more certain I was in the right place and around the right people. I Went home worked with a few pro-bono clients and realised my NLP skills could be WAY more effective if I knew how to coach clients to the problem behind the problem. I joined the ICG International Accredited Master Coach program and completed my Foundations OF Coaching Success weekend in NOV 2013. After spending 8 years in a very structured environment (ARMY) and then moving into a very unstructured environment (MOTHERHOOD) I was a tangled mess. Then I found The Coaching Institute.

I was at a turning point. I had achieved all the goals I had set for myself. Including having everything I ever wanted. I enjoyed every day and everything I was doing. I had no reason to change that. I had no vision to stop doing any of it. Until one day, that day where years of choices made from the opinions of others. What I had, where I was headed was not “normal”. I did not understand that the people around me and the statements, advice and what they thought was right, would have had such a down turn on my life. I asked myself – What is the next ten years going to be like? I actually want back the life I had, the one before the advice from those that didn’t really know. Now 12 months on I run 2 businesses with pride. DP Consulting works with individuals and companies to bring out their best. We use critical alignment strategies to enable people to grow.

I attended my FOCS training in August 2014 and remember feeling a mixture of excitement, anticipation, fear, and determination. I have always been an advocate for modelling those we admire. At the training I loved Joe’s message and so listened intently to what he had to say. I made the decision there and then that I would succeed. I realised at the training how much of a perfectionist I had been my whole life and how it had prevented me from taking action. I would gather research in the hope that one day I’d have enough information for me to be ‘ready’. I simply wasn’t backing myself and believing I could succeed. I believe doing the opposite of this - saying ‘Yes’ and then working out how - has contributed to my success.
