What others have said – Leadership Coaching

“Just want to say a massive thanks for the last few months and coaching sessions, its been an amazing experience for me personally. I have been sceptical in the past with such programs however this has really enabled me to grow as a leader and importantly as a person – I have some great techniques/practices that are part of my ‘operating toolkit’ that I move forward with confidence” C Watson, GM Digital Agency

“Tessa initially coached my daughter on career development issues. As a result of the confidence my daughter took from this process, I asked assistance to navigate several difficult transitions in my business. Managing people is often challenging and I needed to deliver some key messages and find the right style and words to do this while also leaving my people feeling ok about themselves and their contributions. I needed improved performance within an increasingly difficult business environment. Managing in difficult times implies business leaders are compelled to make the tough decisions but having the sessions with Tessa helped me to see things clearly, have a sounding board where I could ensure I was being objective, fair, forceful and truthful and exact the types of outcomes I was after. This paved the way for a successful transition and reinforced valued skills for dealing with people in all facets of my life” Trevor Browne, CEO, Rosbert International

“After a turbulent year professionally, and some advice from colleagues and friends, I took up coaching. After 1 or 2 meetings with Tessa I soon realised I needed to take a step back and understand more deeply who I am. Tessa was great at identifying processes and exercises that would suit me. I now have a far greater understanding of myself than I have ever had before and this has made the process of looking forward so much clearer and helped me move up into a role that only last year I was convinced I was not ready for, and am enjoying it immensely. This will be an ongoing process and Tessa has helped me to identify the resources and tools I need going forward to continue the journey. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tessa.” Miles B, HR Director, Financial Services Firm

“Tessa has supported the Mondo Executive Search leadership team for over eight years in capacities ranging from Executive Coaching, Training and facilitation to Acting General Manager. In all the time we have worked together, I have found her to be professional, dedicated and determined to ensure a positive and productive outcome. Tessa draws on a wealth of solid business acumen to ensure outcomes-based coaching and training and combines this with her deep understanding of human behavior. She is able to assist business leaders to unblock whatever may be preventing positive change and help them to find their own solutions and effectively solve their own challenges. Her ability to build respect, trust and rapport with each of our team members has been the reason why we have enlisted her services over and over again.” Simone Allan, Director, Mondo Search Pty Ltd

“The MLQ360 was initially daunting but the feedback has really helped me learn more about my leadership style, how to leverage my strengths and empower my team. I am taking more time to coach my team and its great to see their response and I am enjoying it. It is great to bounce ideas off someone who gets it! I should have done this years ago and I am excited about how much I could grow and benefits too my family if I leverage my strengths” Louise Taylor, Former National Sales Director, Creative Memories.
“Tessa has provided exceptional care, professionalism and coaching which has improved my work productivity and quality of life significantly. Her approach and guidance in each session is re-assuring and positive but challenges my beliefs and values for ultimate self reflection and awareness. I am absolutely convinced my sessions have changed my perspective for the better. I always felt so comfortable and am sure there will be times when I come to talk again. I actually feel quite disappointed that I won’t be seeing her for a while because I enjoy our chats so much.” Carolyn G, Recruitment Consultant
