Approach

 

Kalli's tailored, integral, strength-based approach is influenced by adult learning models, solutions focus and leadership theory. Kalli draws on leading edge neuroscience findings on our multiple brains (head, heart and gut - which can often be in conflict) and how communicating with, integrating and harnessing their power can generate wiser and aligned decision-making. With deep respect and care, her style is direct yet empathic; challenging, respectful, collaborative, responsive and spontaneous, while skillful and rigorous. She easily builds trust and rapport, and has a gift for quickly uncovering core issues.

 

Kalli is sought after for her strong, well-developed interpersonal skills with the ability to challenge, inspire and motivate, while facilitating a result, with focus not only on external behavioural change, but also on a mindset shift that allows for sustainability of change. Clients consistently report high levels of engagement and generative learning, along with a deeper sense of self, clarity and purpose, with results that impact not only their professional lives, but also their lives at large.
