Founder Simon Popley has been perfecting his executive coaching programs for the past 20 years. Combined with extensive coaching qualifications and education, his rich experience spans across a wide range of sectors including Government, financial services, private healthcare, public healthcare, consulting,mining and occupational rehabilitation.

His approach is an insightful blend of scientific evidence and the very latest coaching psychology research.

His coaching style is both extensively constructive and intensely enjoyable. Simon is currently completing a Master of Science in Coaching Psychology at the University of Sydney.

"What got you here today may not get you where you want to be tomorrow. Coaching can create that key insight that brings about a step change in your leadership style and takes your career to the next level."

With an organisational coach accreditation from the Institute of Executive Coaching and Leadership and a Master of Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations from the University of Sydney, Simon works tirelessly to help leaders uncover and maximise their true potential.

Applying science to the fine ‘art’ of coaching is designed to deliver high impact insights allowing clients to effect real change in their lives. By harnessing effective leadership coaching techniques, clients flourish as they learn how to create sustainable success in their chosen pursuit.

Confidentiality and honesty are key ingredients to Simon’s coaching style. Combined with objective impartiality and a high impact strategy, he promotes trust and confidence when dealing with complex issues, and encourages developing strong, sustainable behaviours.

What is coaching?

A confidential dialogue between a qualified coach and a client where the coach supports the client in becoming more expert in their own life. This outcome is achieved through the skilled use of questioning and specific goal setting, which the client commits too. The coaching relationship created provides a safe space where the client can use the coach as a sounding board for issues or proposed actions and the coach can challenge and provoke new ways of thinking or being by the client which add value in their professional and private lives.
