Learn To Influence In A VUCA World
VUCA stands for volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.
Given the speed at which our workplaces are evolving, the right leadership approach avoids ‘command and control’ and instead focuses on finding the balance between strength and warmth; results through relationships. This takes an intentional approach.

Sheila is a coach and consultant with a “secret weapon” — the ability to use emotional intelligence to get to the heart of people-performance.
Sheila is passionate and very knowledgeable about emotional intelligence. Her enthusiasm for the topic and how an understanding of it can facilitate better personal and business relationships and activities shines through all her communication. As an educator in the field her message is engaging and very persuasive.
I have had the great privilege of being coached by Sheila for over 12 months. At the beginning it was confronting but now am so grateful, Sheila has helped me grow professionally and personally, I feel I am a better leader and a more resilient and happier person as a result.
Sheila created a collaborative and comfortable environment for our coaching sessions where she helped me to identify and build on my own strengths as a leader. Through Sheila’s guidance in these coaching sessions I have been able to identify ways for me to build on the environment of my team as one that promotes safety of thought and collaboration. Sheila has also offered great guidance for career pathway decisions and tools that I can use to understand my true motivations for future opportunities.
I would have no hesitation recommending Sheila as a coach to any professional individuals looking to realise their potential and
for those looking to build on the leadership skillset. I have also thoroughly enjoyed reading her book: The Pinnacle of Presence.
Sheila provides executive coaching in a way that is tailored to your needs. I found that she spends much of her time listening to you and helps to reframe the issues and concerns introducing frameworks and support mechanisms to enable you to work through the challenges. I found Sheila to be knowledgeable, supportive yet able to challenge my thinking and approaches to gain better outcomes.

Sheila is an empathetic and highly skilled coach, who will help you to unlock and realise your full potential; on both a professional and personal level. Through working with Sheila as my executive coach, I have been able to fine tune my self-awareness and reconnect with my creativity as a professional, and an artist. I am now painting fearlessly again.

I worked with Sheila when my career had stagnated and wasn’t sure what I wanted to do next. Initially i had my doubts that the programme could assist me but from the very first session Sheila was helping me on my journey.
What differentiated Sheila from other career development programmes was that she individualised our sessions.
She listened, took time to understand me, my strengths and areas that required further development.
Sheila was also a wonderful advocate, assisting me in asking my organisation to support me and alter the environment to better support me.
I really missed our sessions when they ended, but often draw on the learnings of that time and thankfully Sheila continues to reach out to see how i am tracking
I have been working with Sheila in developing my career as leader as well as developing the teams presence to be more connected. Sheila’s passion to make people shine through a more connected understanding of self has really grounded me as a leader to strip back differing situations to make confident and calculated decisions. Sheila has a massive toolbox that she swiftly uses to assist the growth of individuals or tools that bring teams together.
Sheila has really sparked a passion and level of confidence within myself to take on new opportunities, perform with passion while being connected to my values that underpin me as a leader.
I highly recommend Sheila in coaching individuals or teams to be more connected as a leader or assisting in creating a value add, connected team.
I highly recommend Sheila as a coach for anyone aiming to enhance their own, and others performance. Sheila is relational, personable and appropriately challenging as she guides clients to find their growth edge, set realistic stretch goals, and build on existing strengths. For my part, I reached out to Sheila after stepping into a new role, feeling overwhelmed and not at my best. Using the framework outlined in her book, The Pinnacle of Presence: How great leaders connect, instil trust & get the right results; Sheila quickly helped identify what I needed to focus on, my goals and how we were going to work together. I felt supported and stretched from start to finish and have a high performing team as a result of this partnership, and my passion for leading restored.
I have been privileged to have Sheila mentor me as a coach. She provided incredible insight and facilitated my development within my career. Sheila provides effective challenge and takes a personal interest in her mentoring relationships. Sheila demonstrates enthusiasm in her field, a real inspiration to those seeking to grow within themselves.
Sheila is an inspiring and innovative coach in both individual and team situations. Her innate ability to quickly recognise and work with a team dynamic holds her in a good stead, to bring out the best in each participant in a team session environment. This results in high performing individuals moving into a space of psychological safety, where they can work together to become a high performing team.
My personal experience, and the feedback from my team regarding Sheila’s sessions and coaching, has been tremendous. I have witnessed improvements in resilience and optimism, in addition to increased ability to strategise and problem solve in a fast-paced environment.
Sheila’s Leader as Team Coach program has been one of the most well-received leadership programs that Legal Aid NSW has implemented.
The feedback has been exceptionally enthusiastic, with one participant describing it as ‘the best and most productive time I have spent on myself in a very long time’.
Two others attributed their recent success in securing more senior roles to the course.
We intend to embed Leader as Team Coach as one of our flagship offerings in our management and development framework; and see it as central to increasing alignment and collaboration within and across teams.
Sheila’s genuine passion for her chosen field is almost infectious. She is thought-provoking and insightful – coaching and challenging as required.
Through warmth, humour, perception and expertise, Sheila encouraged me to view work situations through multiple lenses and helped me build tools to respond.
She remains a silent supportive voice urging me forward.
I value the insights Sheila helped me develop on various occasions over the years, and highly recommend her as a professional advocate and coach for individuals and teams alike.
Sheila has a great approach to understanding you and what you need to achieve for high performing teams. I found her expertise in building psychological safety really valuable and I was able to adapt many of my learnings and weekly exercises in my teams. Her coaching really set me up well moving into a new role.
