Accelerated Super-Effective Later Stage Vertical Development for Strategic Leaders, Executive Teams, Senior Leaders and Executive Coaches

Become an Inspiring Synergist ...

so you can transcend the turmoil and cut through complexity, trust emergence and navigate uncertainty, and transform your world with strategic ingenuity as a triumph for all humanity.

Transcend the Turmoil and Cut through Complexity

Rise above the noise, resolve wicked inter-systemic problems and flourish in disruption by transforming to the later stage of leadership capacity of the transformative Synergist. 

Trust Emergence and Navigate Uncertainty

Disruptive change is an opportunity to renew the foundations of business so that everyone has the opportunity, responsibility and encouragement to thrive and flourish in society today.

Transform Your World with Strategic Ingenuity

When we invest in expanding our leadership capacity to take greater responsibility for ourselves, our people and the impact of our work, we leverage our collective genius.

The StageSHIFT Vertical Leadership Development Coaching Program is 40 times more effective than a standard 20-day Leadership Program.

We enable swift vertical shifts to the post-conventional stages of 4.0/Catalyst (Authentic Leader) and 4.5/Synergist (Quantum Leader). Our blended transformative leadership programs offer the necessary holistic depth and strategic breadth to navigate this quantum shift in leadership consciousness with trust and confidence.  

We measure the effectiveness of our Leadership Programs in terms of the number of vertical stage shifts per person pa per coaching day. Our proven ROI is 120% on 8 coaching sessions/2 days pp pa.

The Unique Distinctions of StageSHIFT Coaching

Spirit and Shadow Work

Most coaching approaches focus on strengths, emotional intelligence and developmental goals. These strategies are useful but not sufficient to expedite the shift to Synergist. StageSHIFT Coaching sets aspirational intent and resolves shadow at source to heal emotional triggers and resolve interpersonal issues within the psyche.

Organisational Renewal

Most coaches work with the person, their responsibilities, relationships and identity. While this focus is highly valuable, it is not sufficiently systemic to enable the shift to Synergist. StageSHIFT Coaching transcends and transforms the work environment so that it becomes highly empowering, productive, accountable, engaging and effective.

Transformative Coaching

Developmental coaching is humanistic and person-centric. Coaches ask open questions inviting the coachee to respond. This is effective but not sufficient to enable the shift to Synergist. StageSHIFT Coaching is a holistic transformative coaching partnership including guidance through leading questions and shared insights and revelations with a later stage coach.

Online StageSHIFT Group Coaching for Executive Coaches

"Occasionally we meet folks who bring a unique perspective to strategic situations, creating new thoughts, ideas and innovative thinking. Antoinette is one such person drawing on a wonderful knowledge and understanding of so many aspects of life and business."

Richard Boggon
Divisional Director, Parsons Brinckerhoff

"Antoinette is an extraordinary leadership coach who truly ‘listens’ from multiple levels. Her innate ability to access her vast inner wisdom and bring that forth into form to guide others is a beautiful and powerful gift. Couple this with her extensive knowledge and an established (and tried and tested) suite of leadership development tools and approaches – and the result can only be WOW! She holds a nourishing space from which I have been able to reflect, rewind, rehearse and evolve. Antoinette, thank-you for shining so brightly."

Nicola Vague
Manager Org Culture Diversity & Inclusion City West Water VIC

"Antoinette was an engaging, skilful, intelligent, challenging and enthusiastic person to work with. She integrated many new initiatives to transform our culture creating momentum from which results soon flowed. The terrific speed of success was due to her great ability to engage with the leaders and ensure that the adopted strategies were well understood and effectively implemented to drive toward the desired outcomes. She was a vital source of energy and inspiration in setting our course and getting us going!"

Pat Richards
CEO Businesslink

"Antoinette's Program is unique. It takes a holistic approach to transformation. She is a collaborative intuitive whose depth of knowledge in leadership development is unsurpassed. She has clear insight into what drives different workplace behaviours and how to make momentous changes in perspective. Her strong strategic focus, business acumen and gracious understanding of people mean that you will gain far more than you may expect!"

Anne Cosgrove
Executive Director of People and Culture FACS | Services NSW

"“I enjoy my coaching meetings with Antoinette principally because I find myself uncomfortable. She continually challenges my normalized way of thinking. The coaching is not a linear process. It’s emergent, disruptive and even disconcerting - that’s where the magic is. Antoinette considers things from a deeper dynamic perspective. Her focus on embracing our uniqueness is inspiring and amazingly effective."

Greg Ellis
Executive General Manager Transport

"Proin nibh arcu, consectetur a odio Antoinette is a sensitive, creative and highly gifted coach. Her ability to coach senior leaders through the strategic maze of government while they balance their personal development is her strength. She is an Executive Coach of the highest calibre."

Jane Simmons
Executive Director of Public Schools

"My time with Antoinette will forever have a positive impact on my approach to leadership. I found her perspectives to be thoughtful and insightful, and her connection with mind, body, spirit revolutionized my thinking and, most importantly, my actions. Antoinette helped me strengthen my ability to - Deliver a consistent vision personally, professionally - Drive growth and development through people - Encourage risk taking and accountability, and - Nurture self-awareness and reflective practice. Antoinette has a unique ability to recognize, understand and explain complex leadership issues and, along the way, there have been some surprising personal realizations. Her mentoring makes me a better person every day, both at work and at home. Attuning my inner self and harnessing my authenticity to be more innovative and strategic brought me unique opportunities as an Executive Director working in government and awoke the inner warrior in me to lead my organization to success."

Gary Groves
Regional Executive Director FACS

"I had the wonderful experience and pleasure of working one-on-one with Antoinette Braks. At the time, I was dealing with a very complex personal and commercial situation which she was very quick in understanding the holistic picture. Her commercial experience together with insight into situational dynamics and personality traits greatly assisted me in breaking the complexity down into manageable pieces to find positive forward moving paths. Importantly she gave me the confidence and courage to implement what I considered prior to our sessions an almost insurmountable course of action."

Belinda York
Managing Director, Dynamic Modular Constructions
