    Laser focus - in brief

    Coaching that packs a punch. You like to make the most of your time, work efficiently and intensively and can work well to short-term deadlines. You know what you want. Or you want to test the waters with us before committing further. We respect this.

    Laser-focus meets all of these criteria and will ensure you will complete the coaching experience armed with targeted new skills and knowledge to apply immediately.

    You will gain a good taste for working intensively with our coaches and will walk away from the two coaching sessions with boosted knowledge and capacity in your identified learning area. You also receive access to our Alumni membership.


    A pinpoint coaching package. This is our most compact coaching package.


    New or experienced councillors who are short on time or wish to focus on one learning area. 


    Identify your blindspots and hone in on one area for immediate growth and action.

    Councillor X contacted us after having experienced several instances of direct conflict with a fellow councillor in the Chamber. Councillor X was unsure of the best way to manage the situation and initially thought he might want to utilise our mediation and advice services. However, after a short phone call it became apparent Councillor X wanted to improve his active listening and mindful communication skills so he could better influence the Chamber and outcomes.

    His coaching sessions focused on the practical skills of communicating and he practiced in real time the art of putting these skills into action with his coach. 

    Coaching process

    Our coaching process is robust and will gently nudge you to step outside your comfort zone to expand your skill set and build your confidence. You will emerge with the capability and effectiveness you and your community expect from your leadership.

    Phase 1

    A self-led audit tool to evaluate your current skills against the capability framework for local councillors
    in NSW. This self-reflection is the crucial first step to the process.

    Phase 2
    Collaborative design

    We debrief on the audit tool and identify your most desired learning areas and blind spots. You will receive an action plan to successfully transform
    knowledge gaps into leadership assets.

    Phase 3
    Growth & impact

    Online coaching sessions to get you from where you are now to where you need to be so that you can fully serve your community and reach your leadership potential.

    Phase 4
    Connect & support

    Councillors gain access to our exclusive alumni network for
    councillors who have completed our coaching programs. This provides on going peer support.
