Coaching to grow your leadership

Individually tailored insights and accountability for developing effective leaders

Chances are we’ve already met the challenge you’re facing right now

When you decide to take on the challenge of growing your leadership, our qualified coaches are here to help you with coaching that’s based on…

Real coaching qualifications and experience

Organisations and individuals who want to grow have been partnering with us since 2006. We have helped hundreds of people create more self-awareness, self-confidence and leadership capability.

With every new leadership coaching engagement, we also learn something new. What will you teach us?


Meaningful leadership data

Between them, our coaches are accredited to use at least six different psychometric surveys and other tools with leaders and their teams.

You can rely on us to know the most efficient way to generate insights for ‘ah-ha’ moments and practical leadership development actions.


Caring for your leadership success

What you need most right now in coaching may not be clear to you yet. Our coaches will challenge you, with care and understanding, to find your own answers. We’ve even prepared this leadership quiz to give you a head start!

We sit beside you to quietly help you work on the tough stuff – and hold you accountable until you reach your leadership development goals.


There when you need us

Often the coaching to find a simple solution to a single issue is all you need. You don’t have to wait until a scheduled coaching session with our latest on-demand coaching services.

If you are looking for a deeper dive for more comprehensive change to improve your working life or advance your career, we also provide executive coaching programs for leaders and emerging leaders.

What they say about us

"In a challenging role in a new organisation, coaching with Paula was the ideal time to reflect, problem-solve, brainstorm options and arm me with next steps in all areas - from staffing, internal politics and relationships to tackling key initiatives. The sessions were by video and face to face, both equally effective. Using video allowed for easy integration of sessions into my busy workdays without any hassle. Paula’s style of coaching quickly built trust so I felt safe being vulnerable, quickly getting to the heart of a number of issues and propelling me and my performance forward significantly!"

- Executive GM, People and Culture

"The last couple of years at batyr has seen incredible growth and the Balance at Work team has supported us along the way. They have helped us improve leadership skills across the team by helping us source and manage mentors, and even engaging as mentors themselves. As a young and fresh CEO Susan has also supported me personally with genuine feedback and fearless advice to achieve great things.​"

Sam Refshauge - CEO, batyr

"We used the Harrison Assessment tools followed by a debrief with Susan, for career development with staff, which then allowed us to work with Susan to create a customised 360 degree review process. Susan has a wealth of knowledge and is able to offer suggestions and solutions for our company. She is always ready to get involved and takes the time to show her clients the capability of Harrison Assessments. ​"

Jessica Hill - Head of People and Culture, Choice

"Balance at Work are the ideal external partners for us as they completely get what we are trying achieve in the People and Culture space. Their flexibility and responsiveness to our needs has seen the entire 360 approach being a complete success. The online tool and the follow up coaching sessions have been game changers for our business. The buzz in the organisation is outstanding. Love it! Thanks again for being such a great support crew on this key project."

Chris Bulmer - National GM Learning and Development, ISS Australia

"We use Harrison Assessments with our clients to support their recruitment processes. We especially value the comprehensive customisable features that allow us to ensure the best possible fit within a company, team and position. Balance at Work is always one phone call away. We appreciate their valuable input and their coaching solutions have also given great support to our clients."

Benoit Ribe - HR Solutions Manager, Polyglot Group

"The leadership team at Insurance Advisernet engaged Susan from Balance at Work to run our leadership development survey and learning sessions. Susan was very professional in delivering the team and individual strengths and opportunities for growth. Susan's approach was very "non corporate" in style which was refreshing to see. I can't recommend Balance at Work more highly to lead employee and team development sessions."
