About Cynthia

Your executive coach

I bring 30 years of experience in law, management, and legal education to my coaching.

My focus is now on empowering women in law to be ambitious and to achieve at the highest level.

I am solicitor, an MBA graduate, an accredited Co-Active Coach and a member of the Association for Coaching

I have successfully coached high performing executives who are on the leadership track; helped individuals redirect or ignite their careers and assisted emerging leaders to master various workplace challenges. I have acted as a sounding board to leaders and as a mentor to young professionals.

The most exciting roles of my diverse career have been the development of a specialist accreditation program for lawyers, and as CEO, driving the growth of an Australian law firm. As a consultant, I have developed programs for major corporations and consulted to not for profit organisations and boards.

Through all of this, I have achieved goals as well as faced challenges. All these experiences have served me well for a career in coaching. My diverse career has given me a broad understanding of organisations and how people operate within them.

I consider my desire and ability to understand personal and business challenges and guide people towards practical effective choices as my greatest professional strength. I am a clear thinker, a direct communicator, results focused and absolutely committed to my clients.

Testimonials

"Through my coaching sessions with Cynthia, I am learning to see myself more objectively in the workplace. This is helping me to understand some key behaviours which are acting as roadblocks to my development and success. Throughout this process I am learning new strategies and approaches to challenges which have previously seemed insurmountable."
