COACHING STYLE AND APPROACH
Julie works with clients to identify key strengths and target the areas for growth that will make the biggest difference to their leadership or improve their wellbeing - so they can be at their best more often. She loves working with leaders who are transitioning to, or preparing to transition to, more senior roles and supporting them to develop the skills they need to face challenges. Julie fosters impactful leadership by enabling her clients to develop better relationships with their teams and key stakeholders, to in-turn create impactful outcomes for their organisations.
With 25+ years of experience in the education sector and more than a decade of that spent in senior management roles, Julie has extensive experience working at both strategic and operational levels. She has led teams of varying sizes and held executive roles, managing complex functional areas, and working closely with senior members of the ADO at the Australian Defence Force Academy.
