Being in charge can feel isolating — but it doesn’t have to.

Give yourself the time you need to get perspective and insights with other people who understand the challenges of your role.

Where do you get to drop the façade and be real?

As a business owner, manager, or executive it can feel like you're a duck: above water you’re looking serene but under water you are paddling like mad.  Behind the scenes things can be challenging, unfulfilling, or even daunting, but what you are projecting to the world is calm confidence. This façade means that it's easy to feel isolated and exhausted, even on a day when things go well.

And when you do want to share, where is it OK to say: "it's hard" or "I’m worried"?  If you did, who would truly understand?

Imagine feeling like you have a place you can be honest about work, without fallout or lots of advice.  Imagine having a better connection to what’s important for you, living with greater intention and enjoying increased energy and freedom.

Picture the difference this energy and happiness would make to your life and your performance at work.

This isn’t just a nice idea. It could become your new way of being.

Business Group Coaching Package

Join a carefully chosen group of 3 to 5 business professionals to meet monthly for six months.

Members are hand selected to work well together and you get a say about who is in your group.  Sessions are a mixture of sharing and learning. (No homework or planning required prior to each session, the only requirement, to show up as your most authentic self).

Through careful facilitation you get a safe place to share what is happening for you, enabling increased clarity and insight for yourself and your business.  You’ll hear from others, realising that you're not alone, nearly everyone has a calm façade over the chaos.

You’ll get actionable teachings on how to manage your specific workplace challenges and improve performance.  As a former CEO with depth of experience in large and medium size businesses, I can quickly assess a diverse range of business scenarios and get to the core of issues easily.

The insights you gain through group coaching will equip you to be happier, calmer and be more skilful. This will improve your work performance.

Content for each session is group led.  Popular topics include:

  • Managing and leading. Learn from me, my strengths include getting clear on strategy and implementation, operations and helping make more effective work environments. I excel at leading change and supporting others changing their businesses.
  • Finding the deep purpose of your work. Working out what you really want to do with your work life and how to get it.
  • A holistic approach to strategy, aligning goals with your inner purpose, living with intention.
  • Creating great workplaces that are both happy and performing.
  • Managing stress using mindfulness.

"Katrina has a unique combination of huge business acumen with an insight into the human behaviour, self-motivation and reflection. I love working with her and find her mindfulness teachings to be practical, knowledgeable and incredibly helpful."

A typical session

  • Each session is 90 minutes long and we meet monthly for 6 months.
  • We start with a short introduction, such as a mindfulness practice (or another wellness practice).
  • Next an update on you. Everyone updates the group on how things are.  It’s safe to share, things are without consequence, judgement or unneeded advice.
  • Careful facilitation means everyone gets the space they need, you're not expected to sit through long speeches from others.
  • Learning on today's topic tailored to the group's needs.
  • Practical tools and techniques that you can implement immediately.
  • Wrap up.

What this is Not

  • Large group coaching where you get thrown together with random people who have dissimilar needs.
  • Business 101 advice that you can get from your accountant (and if you can't - find a new accountant).
  • A place where you're expected to share your secrets or bottom line.  What you share is up to you, share just how things are.
  • A woo woo group that has no business understanding.
  • An uptight, competitive group that is focused on the old ways at the cost of your wellness.
  • A place where you are expected to solve other people's problems.  It's about giving leaders space to understand where they are at so they can figure out their own challenges. This will improve your work performance.

The Benefits

  • A feeling of acceptance and connection.
  • Space for you to understand what is really going on for you.
  • Understanding that others have similar challenges, you’re not alone.
  • Perspective to help you prioritise the actions that will really help.
  • Meaningful presentation based on the latest science and proven results
  • A copy of all the slides as handout and a list of suggested actions for each session.
  • A presenter who has been there, done that and can respond to most workplace issues coupled with a deep wisdom about people.
  • Follow-up email.

Your investment

Over the six months, you’ll receive copies of all presentations, follow up emails and over nine hours of sessions.

How much would you pay for a day and a half conference? $1,500? more? And that’s to be part of a crowd, without targeted teaching and the ongoing support.

The cost for corporates is $985. For businesses or individuals with struggling profitability, the rate is $545. Most sit somewhere in between at about $140 per month.

This opportunity is available on a sliding scale because it’s important to me that everyone who wishes to, can be involved. I invite you to choose a rate that is fair for you.

Do you offer any sort of guarantee?

Yes. All my work comes with a money-back guarantee. If you’re not happy, let me know as soon as possible and I’ll arrange a full refund.

Is this some sort of New Age, tree hugging thing?

No, all content is based on proven experience and current, best-practice research.

What you share is up to you. You can share as much or as little as you like.

What if I don’t like someone in my Business Group?

You’ll be able to see in advance who might be in your group, and can veto anyone you don’t feel comfortable with. On the other hand, if there’s someone you’d particularly like to be in a group with, let me know and I’ll arrange it.

How will I get the most out of this?

By being open, willing to listen, and happy to share.

Is it confidential?

Yes, what is shared in the group is confidential.

What if there is someone who dominates? Will I get a turn?

I'm a skilful facilitator; everyone gets a turn.

What if I’m travelling or I move?

We can Zoom you in.

What if I can't make a session?

You will still get a copy of the slides and the information. You’re welcome to book a
one-on-one with me at a discounted rate. Or you could ask one of the other team members to take you through the information. It’s a great way for them to cement their learning and for you both to get to know each other better.

What if I find that it’s not for me?

I offer a money-back guarantee. If you’re not happy, let me know as soon as possible and I will refund your money.
