With these 9 factors you'll Lead Like A Boss & Succeed at the Next Level without working all the hours. How many have you mastered?

Let’s get you these results:

manage and be taken seriously by ALL stakeholders (even that difficult one)

bring people on board with your ideas

create epic results with your team, in challenging times, while still staying calm inside  

I think we have similar views on leadership. Check here to see if we match

You and I know that the top down, hierarchical, one directional model of leadership is wholly unequipped to deal with our volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous (VUCA) world. And it sucks.

With so much information and opportunity available to us, we need a way to sense and respond in a creative, collaborative way. One person cannot have all the answers.

Today, we need leadership that is multidimensional to create something bigger than ourselves. It’s a way to make sense of the world so that we can respond/act in a creative, agile way. That’s what I want to help you achieve.

Leadership includes a range of styles and approaches, and is required at all levels so it’s only logical then that everyone is a leader. In everything we do, we can choose to passively go with the flow or lead and actively create the outcomes we want. I can help you find your personal leadership style. Authentic to you. 

 

Is my approach right for you? check this out

Nobody wants their job or lives to be hard, right? Certainly not me. I’m all about making things easier. As my client SMT said ” you make the hard things feel easy, even when they’re not”. That’s my why.

So I combine authenticity, insight, and mad listening skills so you can make sense of what’s going on, and move forward in  your life and career.

My approach below works. It’s what my other clients want when they are working with me, so is this what you want? 

BE PURPOSE DRIVEN

There is so much noise about us needing to find our purpose to be happy and successful. But what does this even mean and how do we find it? The good news is that you can find purpose without having to have the answer to the life, the universe, and everything (it’s 42. IYKYK).

Purpose can be about what you want at this stage in life. Thank goodness, you don’t have to figure out your whole entire life! Basically, if you can figure out what the impact is that you want to have now, in YOUR world, not the whole world, then you will be purpose driven my friend. So together we connect purpose to action. And you get benefits now.

STRUCTURE AND FLEXIBILITY, TOGETHER

You want a pragmatic and practical approach with frameworks and playbooks to guide you. You don’t want to get tied down into rigid processes and plans. Amen! We will follow an 80/20 rule adjusted for creating impact. Did you know you need 80% flexibility so that you have space to dream big, use your imagination, get creative? Then you only need 20% structure to keep you focused on taking action to achieve your goals. Because that’s the whole point: get you to where you want to be.

DESIGN, ACT, LEARN

A process that actually works, that’s what we all want. Learning by doing (experiential learning) is at the heart of progress in real life, it’s how you learned to walk and talk. Coaching does this for you with all the complex challenges you face.

You don’t want to sit and listen to someone else tell you what to do. (If you do, there are so many TED talks and books out there. I’m happy to make recommendations, and check out my blog for excellent tips).

But hey, I know that you have the best answers deep inside. I’m like a guide: I know how to help you find them, fast. Plus I’m great at creative thinking and drawing valuable conclusions by connecting the dots to get the insights. So you get to brain dump, and I’ll help you turn it into genius strategy.

And wouldn’t it be great if you could make leaps and bounds in your progress? Of course! That’s why we will focus on transformative actions that will help you fly, rather than just plod through a step by step plan and grind slowly away.

Some things you want

Take your team to the next level in high performance.

People seek your opinion because they value you.

Speak with authority and ease, no matter who’s listening.

Get buy-in for your ideas because persuasion and influence feels natural.

Be as comfortable with the people stuff as you are with the tech stuff.

Don’t use up all your inner resources just to get the job done. You want energy left over to enjoy life outside of work.

You want this, and you’re ready to take the next step.

Amber gave me tools that I can use in the future too, so I can continue to navigate life’s challenges more easily

Megan Giannini Philips

Amber helped me look at challenges from a new perspective which helped me re-frame some mental patterns that were limiting me. This made my challenges less heavy and gave me new ways to approach and overcome them. She did this in a very open, constructive, non-judgemental, and solutions oriented way.

Working with Amber helped me prioritise myself amongst all my other priorities. And she gave me some tools to use in the future, so I can continue to navigate life’s challenges more easily.

I overcame old habits that were holding me back from reaching my goals

As the sessions progressed, and Amber encouraged me to explore my own actions and beliefs, I became aware of old habits which were holding me back from reaching my goals. Amber’s coaching style helped equip me with strategies for overcoming these habits.

This helped me progress in ways I didn’t expect going into the program, such as letting myself be more authentic in difficult situations, and communicating more pro-actively when coaching others, and also being courageous with risk taking when the rewards justify it.

I’m very happy with the progress we made.

Her methodology is like magic: I found ways to take action

Amber has coached me in a personal leadership program. Amber has deep knowledge of how motivation, passion and courage work  and the role that fear plays in our behaviours.  Her methodology is like magic: she listens, that seems all. The magic is that I learned, and discovered, found ways to take action, experiement, review and take action again.

Amber is a very talented coach; extremely knowledgeable, extremely serious about confidentiality. She has a true passion for her work, can work with positive energy and drive in very very challending (work) environments

The clarity I gained helps me in my complex work environment

I was coached by Amber in the first half of 2017 and I really enjoyed the experience. Each session seemed to tease out some new insight about my strengths and purpose.

It was a genuinely insightful experience that helped me to focus on my goals and fret less about my “saboteur thoughts”.

I think a lot of people working in a complex business environment would benefit from the clarity her coaching programme provides.

Amber has helped me make my next career step

Amber is friendly, extremely sensitive and motivating. She fits perfectly into the role as a career coach meaning that she will do her utmost to inspire you to reach your goal with the capabilities you alrady have, so that you can accomplish what you want in any aspects of your life following your true self.

Amber will give you the structure and the “key to yourself” which you will carry well beyond the sessions with her. Thanks to her background in real life work environment, combined with a professional coaching knowledge and natural talent, you will have a perfect mix of the two worlds. thanks Amber!

I came to coaching because I had some big decisions to make

I was at a point in my life where I had some big decisions to make. I was having trouble moving forward and making decisions.

Even though many people come to her with a similar question of “how can I make better decisions?”, she adapted her communication and feedback style to me. We established what kind of approach would work best for the two of us. It impressed me that Amber understood the importance of this and treated me like an individual.

Amber is exceptionally good at what she does. Her empathic nature and talent for listening and then asking the right questions helped to get straight to the core of the issue at hand. At the same time, she is relentlessly positive, supportive, and caring.

On the practical side, the ability to carry out the coaching via Skype and email was a key part of making me feel that I could make time to fit it into my busy schedule.

Lauren Bains | Research Scientist

For high performers who want to learn how to enjoy more and let their prefectionist chill.

As a typical High Achiever, Go-Getter and Perfect Perfectionist (makes me tired just seeing these words), I went through a massive transformation under the guidance of Amber. She has a knack of turning my Inner Critic and Judge into something I can work with.

I was super hard on myself, so her delicate, precise, professional and nonjudgmental way of exploring my issues was super welcome to me.
Thanks to Amber and her way of coaching, I understood how to let go, release the ‘over responsibility’. I learned that I’m ok. That there is no hurry in life and that I can slow down and savour. I learned to trust myself.

Its extremely liberating to work together with amber. You will be able to let go better of the constant need to do or be better. What a relief. You will just enjoy life more, be a better leader and ultimately like yourself more.

Eeke Wizman | Trainer & Coach

Experiencing the results felt absolutely amazing

You have accompanied me through my biggest transformational years – so everything has become possible. You supported me and helped me manage a career jump / stretch that I did not feel possible.

When people work with you they get your active listening skills, your ability to get to the essence of what you hear, and yet adding a challenge or eye opening statement while summing it up. Your understanding of business and leadership, and your sharp ability to read people make any session with you full of insights, and brings clarity as to what is to be done.

elt absolutely amazing.

Full clarity coming out of our sessions on what I needed to do – super actionable insights and also at times peace of mind.

Coach in certification: I listened back to almost all sessions and learned from your skills 🙂

Doing coaching certification these outcomes were important to me:

  • I got to know a part of me that I really like, where I am confident and make easy contact with people and energetic, and I can choose when I want to be like that
  • I realized coaching needs to fit into me instead of me fitting into coaching
  • I got more clarity on what I like to offer as a coach
  • Jeeeej I passed my oral exam! Thank you for your contribution to this beautiful journey!

I liked your energy, flexibility and your coaching skills, I listened back to almost all sessions and learned from your skills 🙂

I’d recommend you and tell people that you could work with anyone, any kind of person, and adjust to what they need. That you listen very well and that you take them to interesting places they’ve never been or seen before.
