Manager, Property Services, Marrickville Council
I recently completed a series of executive coaching sessions with Duncan Sutherland as part of a year-long sustainability leaders program. Duncan’s coaching has changed the way I process my inner thoughts and pre-conceived ideas. His coaching has allowed me to remove inhibitors that at times may have stifled my ability to influence.
Through Duncan’s coaching I have been able to strengthen staff confidence, inspiring the team to create a ‘Team Vision’. As a result of Duncan’s coaching I now find myself challenging some of the norms of public sector ‘Transactional’ style leadership. Instead I focus on being a ‘Transformational’ leader, one who builds and implements vision.
