Speak with us today about leadership development, leadership coaching, team training and conference speaking.

David Grindle |
Director. Chairman

My Challenges

A growing lethargy towards work. A lack of emotional and creative energy. I would sit in my car and had to muster all my energy just to walk up the stairs to start the day. I was beginning to believe my limiting thoughts. I didn’t have the skills to get back on top of my game.

What I wanted

A strengthened sense of self-worth. To have heightened enthusiasm – to have the same energy at the finish line as when I started. And I've definitely achieved that

Program Impact

Bruce dovetailed his guidance according to exactly what I needed. Highly personalised. Powerful blend of new insights and actual implementation.
Dramatic positive impact in terms of how I think and how I act – personally, financially, reputationally.
I’m back on my game. Enjoyment has returned, I enjoy getting to work. I am a better chairperson, a better leader, a better lawyer, a better parent – a better human being. And I know how to sustain it.
I feel a far greater sense of control in my life. I know where my energy leaks and how to stop it; where my energy comes from, and how to replenish it. I feel more complete.

Unexpected benefits

I’m excited about this new area of mindset. Before I thought it was a bit fanciful, but now I understand that ‘Energy flows where my attention goes’. It’s so powerful, so influential.
It’s been a fantastic learning experience

Bruce Croucher |
Director

Personally, I have greater quality time with my family; my improved communication has enhanced these relationships – conflicts are resolved easily. There’s a consistent all-round positive vibe.
Professionally, gross profit has gone up by 80% and revenue up 10% in what is a depressed market.
We now have a healthy performance culture where staff own their responsibilities knowing they will be remunerated for efforts or challenged on non-performance.
We have gone from scrapping the bottom of the barrel to soaring with eagles.

Denise Haszard |
Barrister

My Challenges

I was working to become a highly regarded and respected authority as an Appeals Barrister… but it was killing me.
I was over-analysing, plagued with self-doubt and not sleeping. I was deeply questioning if I could continue doing this any longer. I even thought it had broken me.

What I wanted

Greater clarity around my purpose. The ability to remain calm especially in courtroom hearings. I also wanted to be a better parent – not so distracted or stressed.

Program Impact

My life has changed. I feel lighter and have a whole new vision of what is possible. I am so much calmer and bust through procrastination. I have tools to refocus and re-energise.
I became so clear about who I am and what I bring, that I rebranded, set up a my blog, upgraded offices, and took on significantly more challenging clients. Within three months, my bottom line had gone up 250%
Bruce’s approach empowers you to do your own weeding – to discover breakthroughs yourself in a powerful blend of new insights and implementation

Unexpected Benefits

Feeling so much more capable and present as a (solo) parent of two. I can ‘hold the line’ with my daughter. They’re even applying the mindset skills in their lives and it’s been great to see them grow.

Lisa and Steve Stone |
Realtors ‘Elite Club’ Performers (Top 2% nationally for the last three years)

Of all the training we’ve had over 25 yrs, Bruce’s coaching has gone deeper and had more positive impact than any training we’ve undertaken… been the most powerful.
We’re calmer, more focused, more positive and enjoy a far greater sense of ease and certainty. Distraction is down, productivity is up, results are up and our personal relationship is stronger as well

Trish Drake |
Real Estate Agent

My Challenges:

I had several significant patterns of self-sabotage that were severely undermining my efforts and performance. What was worse, I couldn’t shift them; I had almost resigned myself to accepting them. It had got so bad that I had lost my once-dominant position in my favourite territory.

What I Wanted:

What I wanted was to get my confidence back; to dominate my territory again; to feel I was making progress in all areas of my life.

Program Impact:

With Bruce’s coaching, my whole world changed – I’m back in the driver’s seat. I now have 60% domination of my territory (and growing); confidence levels have gone from 3/10 – 8/10; I’ve reconnected to powerful skillsets I had completely forgotten about. Productivity is up 20%, commissions are up 40%. I no-longer over-think things.
The whole process has just been brilliant. My reputation has gone up, I’m more grateful and compassionate and I now have far more quality time with my family (very important to me).

Unexpected Benefits:

What was unexpected, was the lift in my overall happiness. It is now consistently 9-10/10 (and it’s not fake happiness, it’s an easy joy). I have never done any programme that has given me so much pleasure – across work and family.

Terry Baucher |
Director. Baucher Consulting

I’ve worked with Bruce for over 6 years. His impact has been massive. Beyond the firm’s 20% bottom-line improvement, year-on-year, he has focused my mindset and confidence.
Through his guidance, I’ve become an acknowledged Tax Thought Leader (regular tax commentator on TV and radio, selected as the independent advisor to the Government’s Tax Working Group, and co-authoring a book). He broadens your thinking horizons.

Dr. Anna Kirk |
Barrister

My Challenges:

The overwhelm of a massive ‘To Do’ list. So, perpetual busy-ness and a lack of balance. Family is very important to me and there wasn’t the time to spend with them
I realised that in the state I was in, I could wake up in 10 years and it could feel like everything’s passed me by – I was that busy.

What I Wanted:

Work / life balance (quality time with my family) as well as living in a state of balance - both are important to me

Program Impact:

I loved the simplicity of the process. I was surprised by how well it worked.
Stress dropped from 7/10 – 3/10. My productivity lifted by 30+% (I no longer fluff about). I am far more comfortable with the really challenging files.
I am living the life I want to live, with a greater sense of ease and flow. I have a strong sense of wellbeing and satisfaction with where I am

Unexpected Benefits:

I was surprised how quickly I could alter my perspective especially on those big blockers. It happened so quickly and with seeming minimal effort

Lloyd Berryman |
Lawyer

My Challenges

I lived within a near-perpetual state of overwhelm and consequent inaction. I was also hyper-defensive (ready to go to war) across many of areas of my life.
I had a gnawing awareness of self-underwhelm, being locked in my comfort zone and not knowing how to get out.

What I Wanted

Growth in my practice, plus being a better leader to my team. I wanted to be a fuller version of myself – more productive, more fulfilled, a stronger communicator.
I needed a practical, grounded approach to removing blocks, training my mental state and reactivating myself.

Program Impact

My practise has definitely grown… in terms of

  • Market share,
  • Depth of connection with my clients,
  • Leading my team and
  • Revenue generation.
I feel far freer in myself – my confidence has risen from 6/10 – 8/10.
Productivity has gone from 7 – 9/10 and that was even sustained this through the Covid lockdown disruption (a solid 20% uplift in throughput).
I enjoy a much deeper sense of connection with clients, colleagues and especially family and friends.
Overall well-being has risen from 6 – 8/10. It’s been a very positive spiral.

Unexpected Benefits

Two things: The levels of joy I‘m now experiencing at home. I’m having more fun and really enjoying the time I spend with my wife and the boys. I wanted this but didn’t think it would be a consequence of this program
Getting into flow on a more consistent basis. Before it was hit-and-miss but now I’m far more consistently present and focussed.

Ian Mills |
Managing Director

Organisational Challenge

We had been bought by a major multi-national, and needed to re-invigorate our core identity then achieve bottom-up responsibility for delivering on this, a company-wide sense of ownership of outcomes.

Organisational Program Impact

Massive improvement in staff satisfaction levels. Over 15 months, we went from 72nd (out of 87 countries) to 2nd. Staff hated to leave.
Unplanned staff turnover was at 22%; dropped to 8%, which was huge as it took a year for someone to be trained up. We didn’t lose anyone to our competitors.
It freed up my time by 20%, and that is with fewer senior staff. Gave me time to work ‘on’ rather than ‘in’ the business.

Unexpected Benefits

The process gave people their voice, permission and sense of ownership in the success of the organisation. It lifted individual and company confidence.
We identified our essential core and it’s still live. There’s continuing positive energy around it 19 months on.

Elle Wuthrich |
Financial Advisor

My Challenges

I had been struggling with 9/10 stress and anxiety levels for a couple of years. I was forgetting things, lacked focus at work and always tired because I couldn’t sleep.
This impacted my self-confidence especially as I was in a new industry that I recognized was my calling.

What I Wanted

I needed personal clarity but far more than just a standard plan. I needed tools to help lift my confidence and help me feel comfortable with who I am. I was after a rapid personal evolution toolbox.

Program Impact

The change has been dramatic. Now I am a new relaxed person (anxiety is at a 3/10). Happiness levels are now at a consistent 8/10. Productivity has gone up ~70% - I'm able to smash out work far quicker.
I feel like an all-round, better person. To have got here without therapy or medication is incredible.

Unexpected Benefits

I am more grateful now than I have ever before. I was not expecting that because I was always worried about the future– now, I’m really positive with where I am and the future.

Kim Chernecki |
CEO

My Challenges

I’m chasing a very real $40m opportunity but to achieve this, I needed to overcome several recurring personal blockers, situations where I doubted myself, felt paralysed, and powerless. They were even causing me to lose of sleep.

What I Wanted

Resolution and the tools to ensure ongoing progress. A simple approach to dismantling those barriers. (I had been unsuccessful with so many other modalities in the past).

Program Impact

Massive impact, beyond expectations. There were break-throughs in every session. My issues have resolved themselves. I can observe and re-tool all unresourceful thoughts. I know I am on the right track and I feel a greater sense of freedom, ease and certainty.
Bruce absolutely ‘got me’ and easily went where I needed to go. He didn’t need lengthy background stories – just got straight to the resolution.
He works at a profound level with a process, intuition and sense that’s really easy to work with. He’s so committed and provides amazing value. It’s clear this is his life’s work

Unexpected Benefits

How easy it was. It was fresh, it was new. I could easily connect, and it was at the level I needed it to be.
The new level of trust I have in myself and in my future. I thought I knew my spiritual purpose, but this process took it to a whole new level.

Amy Gulbransen |
Lawyer

My Challenges

After suffering through a particularly personally-challenging 18mths, I was feeling flat, bruised, dispirited, and deeply questioning whether to continue in the profession I love. My typical drive had evaporated.

What I Wanted

Practical tools to help me feel more like myself again – clear sense of direction, enjoying work, get more energy, feel happier. What I got was way more than this – especially pleasing given I came into this highly sceptical of ‘self-help’ hype.

Program Impact

A material shift in how I think, how I behave, how I see myself and where I see myself. And I’m motivated to get on and do it – the ‘grind’ has gone.
The process is so easy. I felt safe to explore, professionally supported, and deeply understood. Bruce has the skills to hone-in on the core and provide a clear method for immediate benefit. He responsively tailored every session and provided a depth of solution I had no idea existed.
I feel more in control, more certain, more focused. My life outlook and morale has increased. Confidence levels moved from 4/10 to a consistent 8-9/10. Productivity and billings have also gone up.

Unexpected Benefits

This has been an integrated whole-person, whole-of-life improvement. It has given me a life-clarity plus the resources to be intentional about all areas of my life.
I feel very appreciative of all of Bruce’s hard work. It’s been a thoroughly positive experience and sets a very high bar.
