Stepping Into Leadership

Assisting emerging talent to become confident authentic leaders

The aim of the coaching program is to assist emerging talent to become confident authentic leaders to aid them in meeting the leadership challenges presented by their current roles and to equip them for future career progression. This program will provide a transformative experience for those who are ambitious and on the management and leadership track. The one-on-one coaching program has two major themes, how to be a leader and how to bring people with you.

The first part will help you identify your current challenges, develop self-awareness and positive behaviours, as well as developing a road map for your future career. The second part will focus on the attitudes and behaviours required to empower and to manage people in the workplace.

At all stages the program is biased towards action. The structure may be adapted to respond to the needs of the individual client. Ideas will be illuminated using examples and incidents from the client’s own experiences.

At the end of the program, you will have:

A greater understanding of your leadership identity

Increased confidence in the exercise of your authority

Adopted positive behaviours and attitudes to meet the challenges

Identified difficult people and how to deal with them

Prepared for difficult moments

Developed a career plan


"Cynthia has helped me to build up my law firm. Together we have worked on all aspects of the business from small management details to strategic direction, firm structure and personnel needs. Cynthia helps me clarify my short term and long-term priorities so that from month to month I have a clear vision of my actions, rather than just muddling along or worrying that I’m missing some important action.

She is a supportive mentor, makes me accountable for my actions and generally provides a structure within which I work to achieve my goals. On a personal level having someone to talk with who has faced many of issues I am facing is very relieving and adds significantly to my quality of life. Having Cynthia as a coach and mentor has given me confidence in my future, and peace of mind in the present."
