“The changes have been wide reaching across my home and work life.”

How has the coaching helped you become a more impactful leader?
The changes have been wide reaching across my home and work life. I’m not just better able to respond in the moment and make more considered decisions – I’m also better able to identify and replace old habits and patterns that no longer serve me.

In one word – how would you describe what it’s like to work with me?
Energising – Chloé has an ability to build trust and help you get to the root of your issues in order to make lasting change.

“Finally, I’m now much better at acknowledging my own expertise.”

What made you decide to commit to working on yourself?
I wasn’t having the impact I really wanted to have in front of senior executives. I wanted to learn how I needed to adapt my style to be more successful.

How would you describe what it’s like to work with me?
It’s like having someone who’s got one of those magnifying make-up mirrors pointed at me. That’s helped me see the things I’m doing which are letting me down (as well my strengths) and like an amazing make-up artist, Chloé has helped me find ways to bring my strengths to the forefront (and put a bit of coverage on the weaknesses).

Q. You’re one of the most well regarded executive coaches in Australia. What practises have helped you to sustain a level of high-performance?

Chloé: Well, there certainly isn’t a single magic bullet, however there are a number of habits I commit to daily that help me immensely and contribute to my self care practise. Because I’m of service and my focus is on ‘other’ all day long, I’m continuously exploring and trying to find the delicate balance between connection and solitude.

For me to fully recharge, I require solitude, stillness and quiet. I practise Vipassana meditation – I love my daily morning meditations, which have become non-negotiable for me and help me practise ‘being’ with whatever arises. Sleep – I’m a sucker for a good night’s sleep, and I prioritise it. Since I’ve moved away from the city, I’ve become accustomed to going to bed early and waking with the sunrise.

This coaching method can have the deepest impact on your leadership journey as you slowly unpack years of mental conditioning and belief systems that fundamentally do not serve you.

Developmental Executive Coaching

  • Focuses on uncovering the root of a mindset problem or insecurity and empowers you with the tools and perspective to overcome obstacles and challenges on your own
  • Facilitates perspective-taking and meaning-making that moves beyond static goals or targets to become an iterative framework

  • Focuses on your meaning-making structure, looking at what drives and modulates your actions and behaviours based on long-held values and beliefs
  • Enhances your ability to meet current and future challenges more effectively as you develop an increasingly complex understanding of yourself, others and the systems in which you operate

Imagine if you could start to hold your values and beliefs without attachment to experience the freedom of perspective-taking.

Leadership begins with self – leadership and a focus on self – awareness and self – development.

This is the work of growing up, waking up, cleaning up and showing up. The first three relate to our inner game and the personal developmental work we do within our consciousness. The fourth is where we enact real change and reality.



This is about maturity, being able to view multiple perspectives under pressure and being able to respond appropriately. The more perspectives we can view, the more complexity we can hold.



This is about disidentifying with the ego or the self, which we know to be an illusion. This calls for mindfulness and presence so we can distance ourselves from the self structures that limit the leader.



This is about clearing any beliefs, values, mental barriers and identity structures that get in the way of us achieving our potential.



This where we take action and make meaning matter.

“It’s improved my level of influence and impact.”

What has been your biggest learning/ insight as a result of the coaching process?
It’s been invaluable learning more about my conditioned self and recognising how past experiences have shaped my habituated ways of thinking and behaving as a leader.

How has the coaching helped you become a more impactful leader?
It’s helped me view reality through another lens. It’s improved my level of influence and impact as a result of understanding myself and my drivers and derailers better. Understanding my own triggers and how I usually respond has taught me how to better control my reaction to challenging situations.

In one word – how would you describe what it’s like to work with me?

“I have a clearer headspace to deliver stronger messages.”

How has the coaching helped you become a more impactful leader?
The biggest impact has been unlocking my potential and practising being fully present. Prior to the coaching with Chloé, I found myself absorbed with the chatter in my head, distracting me from putting my best self forward in interactions. By addressing that, and being fully present, I’m able to have a much stronger impact as my true authentic self. This means that I’m able to inspire my team more strongly and it allows me to have a clearer headspace to deliver stronger and clearer messages.

“Coaches like Chloé are rare. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chloé for over two years and have always been in awe of her passion, energy and drive.

Chloé’s ability to put our staff at ease, build rapport quickly and help our key leaders experience significant improvements in the way they show up, present and communicate is impressive. Our staff, even our senior leaders, showed strong improvements in their levels of confidence, their effectiveness and their ability to lead.

Chloé was engaging and deeply invested in the success of our team.”
