Leadership Coaching
that actually works

A guaranteed 6-phase proven coaching process for Senior Leaders designed to create behavioural change that everyone can see

Have you reached your potential to make a difference?

As a Senior Leader, are you making the difference you believe you can truly make?

It's a question that occupies many leader's minds in senior roles.

Often, organisations don't reach their full potential, simply because the leaders within those organisations don't reach theirs. 

And organisations don't perform - people behave, which in turn, results in organisational performance. 

So if you are committed to changing the performance of your organisation, it's imperative to change people's performance, starting with your own.

Transformational Leadership Coaching with Paul Mitchell is an in-depth exploration of who you are and more importantly, who you are capable of becoming.

What makes that so difficult?

The difficulty is that you are so flat out looking after the biz and other people's needs that you may have forgotten to look after your own. Your focus has been on growing your people and growing the business. And rightly so. But there comes a point where eventually you find this is not giving you the return you'd hoped for.

So, you wind up exhausted, with no energy and very little "work/life balance".

Or you're "handling" so much internal politics and "patch wars" it can all seem a little bit overwhelming. 

Or you've had feedback that, although your functional contribution to the business is superb (you've been pushing everyone to excel lately), you seem to be rubbing a few people up the wrong way.

Great! Go figure! You're damned if you do and damned if you don't.

You realise the business imperative of hitting the numbers, but for you, it's not just a numbers game. You're a leader who wants to make a difference way beyond the bottom line. How can you get this right?

You're fully aware you can't do this on your own and would love to look at how to engage your key stakeholders, to be truly committed to each other and the organisation's success.

You also realise leadership is not just about work. You want to make a real difference, with your family and friends and in your community.

Let me assure you IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY.

What's required is for you to slow down to reflect on your values, reflect on your beliefs, access the stories you've been telling yourself and then ask yourself "what's a better story?".

That might sound impossible, but it's not. It's just that right now you can't see the possibilities that lie ahead, the potential you have to make a difference, and the techniques, tools, rituals and mindset you'll need to get there.

All of this can be learnt.

Most of the leaders we coach, find the change they experience through coaching "transformational". This is a word senior leaders don't use lightly.

Their time spent reflecting and gaining both feedback from their coach and their key stakeholders (and more importantly "feed-forward" advice on how to get better) has a pay-off they could never have imagined.

From the start, Paul's methods were quite different from anything I'd experienced previously. From establishing a broad range of leadership objectives to his concept of "owned and disowned" states, this was to be quite a different experience. Whereas many previous leadership programmes had been formulaic or focussed on removing unconstructive behaviours, Paul was able to help me to use those behaviours, experiences and emotions that are intrinsic to me, but to much better effect.

I cannot begin to describe the impact that this had, not just on the amount of time that I have been "at my best" but on my overall energy levels. I think because of this, and the way he keeps in touch, Paul's coaching has had a far more enduring effect.

A brief overview

Paul Mitchell Leadership Coach Australia

Transformational Leadership Coaching with Paul Mitchell incorporates the trusted technology of Marshall Goldsmith with the unique combination of the human enterprise’s “inner” and “outer” game. 

Delivered by Paul Mitchell, an organisational psychologist with over 40 years of experience working as a Trusted Advisor to some of the most Senior Leaders in the Asia Pacific.

Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centred Coaching has enabled successful people to lead even more effectively through long-term change in leadership behaviour by using a methodology that is highly effective and time-efficient.

The Stakeholder Centred Coaching process guarantees measurable leadership growth and behavioural change. Many top executives, great thought leaders and great HR development professionals have experienced the benefits of the Stakeholder Centred Coaching process firsthand for themselves and their organisations.

A comprehensive study among 11,000 business leaders in 8 multinational companies on 4 continents concluded that 95% of leaders who consistently applied the Stakeholder Centred Coaching process, measurably improved their leadership effectiveness.

Stakeholder Centred Coaching does not require any ‘extra valuable time’ from busy business executives, as the coaching and leadership change process is integrated into his/her leadership role on the job.

What's in it for you?

You'll begin to balance self-care along with the care of others.
You'll find the time to start doing what's important to you. A hobby, a sport, a cause.
You'll drop the non-sensical idea of "work/life balance" and start to explore life integration and "work/life synergy".
You'll maximise not only people's contribution to the business but also the meaning they gain from their work.
You'll slow down to go faster. You'll respond rather than react, making much better and clearer decisions.
You'll get to know and own "your leadership shadow". Those parts of you that have been holding you back, which once recognised become your strongest allies.
You'll have strategies to manage down, across and up the organisation particularly with your own boss.
You'll let some of that hubris slide, and truly own your humility, feeling so much more comfortable sharing your vulnerabilities and connecting with real authenticity.
You'll be the "energizer bunny" rather than a "tired old hare".

 Being promoted to my first Directors role on the board of one of ANZs top 10 FMCGs organisations, I felt ill-equipped to manage the strong personalities and tough conversations ahead at the board level. I also needed to learn how to transition from being a peer to being a boss with my colleagues. Paul’s approach is around integrating both work and home as a leader. His psychology background helps you identify root causes to your reactions and behaviours/feelings, right back to childhood. 

He has helped me prioritise my whole life, not just my business life. And the focus on self-love has made me not only a better leader, but a better partner and mum. Overall, I have grown in confidence and maturity towards the challenges I face and feel more emotionally equipped to manage them. I couldn’t recommend Paul enough.

Who is this not for?

This coaching is not for everyone.

Humans have a life cycle. Organisations are no different.

Organisations and leaders within them are at a different stage of this organisational lifecycle and at each stage "you gotta do what you've gotta do".

If you're just starting a business, your key priority has to be sales - CASH! Leadership Coaching should be way down on your list. It's not for you at the moment.

Or if you're a Senior Leader tasked with cutting expenses and maximising profit at any cost, Transformational Leadership Coaching is also not for you. Again, "you gotta do what you gotta do".

With decades of experience as coach, Paul has also recognised patterns in the leaders who really excel with his coaching.

Leading Community: If you're not actively involved or intend to be involved in giving time to Not-for-Profits or community-based endeavours... it's probably not for you.

The Inner Game: If you're not prepared to explore the impact that the leaders in your early life (family of origin) have had on you... it's probably not for you.

Legacy of Leadership: If you're not totally committed to developing leaders around you, rather than just more followers... it's probably not for you. 

But, if you are totally committed to maximising peoples contribution to organisational success and simultaneously creating a work environment that magnifies the engagement, joy, satisfaction and meaning people get in their roles, then Transformational Leadership Coaching is a definite for you.

What's the next step?

 It often takes time to get the approval for this kind of development for you or one of your associates. Even at a senior level.

So as long as you have been in contact with the human enterprise by 30 September 2020 about the Platinum Coaching Package, and the coaching commences before the end of 2020, we will gladly gift you the Keyshop™ once all details have been approved.
