“My sessions have been wholly transformative. I find the combined use of behavioural analysis and neuroscience unique in its ability to deliver deep insight into the relationship dynamics across my professional and personal pursuits. I am working, communicating and partnering with far greater intention, effectiveness and impact, and far less heartache and frustration.”

Este Darin-Cooper

State Manager (NSW/ACT), Creative Partnerships Australia and Director, Darin Cooper Foundation

“Leadership Space has been supporting Sylvanvale as we steer our way through this very dynamic time in the disability sector, with the introduction of the NDIS. Through individual coaching, team coaching and workshop facilitation, Leadership Space has worked with our Executive Leadership team to support each leader’s personal commitment to greater collaboration and team cohesion. This has enabled our leadership to clearly understand and deliver on the outcomes necessary for our success.” 

Leanne Fretten

CEO, Sylvanvale Foundation

“The work with Leadership Space guided the team to reflect more deeply on how we work with our venture partners, learning from our 15-year legacy. At the level of individual team members, including myself, we gained a deeper personality assessment than the 5 plus profiles I had done over the previous 15 years. The result was impressive. We now have a common language and a more profound understanding of what is behind our behaviours with each other and as we work with our venture partners.” 

David Williams

Executive Director, Venture Philanthropy, Social Ventures Australia (SVA)

“We engaged Leadership Space to facilitate our strategic planning. She gained my trust quickly and brought to the conversations a level of value and insight that included our culture, leadership and strategy. Over a period of 9 months, Elise partnered with myself and the CEO. At the end of this process we have a more cohesive Board and Executive, higher quality leadership relationships, and a strategy that we are deeply excited about and aligned to.”

“Thank you 3 times-over for facilitating TFN’s team development day. As we charge forward, I think we will later reflect on this day as a cultural moment for our team. It was just the right balance of useful and emotional, accelerating our chances of gelling and working together successfully.”

Tom Hull

General Manager, The Funding Network (TFN)

“Leadership Space was formative in a time of change and transition at Brisbane Powerhouse. The combination of personality profiling, a team workshop and then ongoing coaching for the leadership team was critical in not only setting strategic direction but maintaining our focus on getting there. They have the right mix of NFP understanding, expert facilitation tools and a gentle/firm touch, depending on what was needed.”

Fiona Maxwell

CEO, Brisbane Powerhouse
