Principal Leadership Coach ✦ Published Author ✦ International Speaker ✦ Performance Profiling Assessments
15+ years in senior leadership roles within blue-chip technology and global companies
Jacqueline’s extensive corporate experience has given her firsthand insight into what it takes to develop and maintain high-performing and engaged leaders and teams within a corporate environment. In these roles, she earned a reputation for effectively turning around the performance of teams experiencing significant conflict and dysfunctional behaviour that undermined the success of major projects. A notable highlight was when she led a process of cultural transformation within a multi-billion dollar organisation and, in so doing, managed to resurrect a 36 million euro global program that was stagnating and repeatedly failed to progress.
High performance can lack meaning and purpose if it’s disconnected from our true calling
Jacqueline recalls that one of the most defining moments in her professional career was discovering that the true power of being influential and effective lies in being fully aligned with our calling and purpose. She brings this fundamental factor into all her coaching conversations and courses.
Specialising in the power of intuitive leadership and its benefits in complex and high-risk decision-making and team-building
Little attention is paid to the power of intuition in a leadership context, even though many of the world’s most influential leaders regularly tap into it. With her science background and experience as an ontological leadership coach, Jacqueline offers valuable insights into what science and other successful leaders can teach us about tapping into the intuitive mind, especially when making complex and high-risk decisions and building high-performing teams.
