"The Vertical Holistic Leadership Profile was the best, most useful piece of reading I have ever done.

I read it cover to cover three times. My own results aside, I learned so much about what leadership really means. 

I found the ‚ÄúHolistic‚ÄĚ approach especially enriching ‚Äď it goes well beyond the most evolved leadership concepts I have come across so far."

- Senior Executive, Ingram Micro

"I had been seeking answers and tools in a variety of different places to pull myself forward to my next step.

I was fascinated and inspired by the way the VHLP systemized and helped me see patterns very clearly. It gave me a deeper explanation for a lot of the issues I was facing, as well as concrete and practical actions to further my development.

In short, it was like being recognized for who I really am. Every comforting word and clear action rang crystal clear in every part of my being."

- People & Culture Business Partner, Oatly

 

"The VHLP Discovery Debrief greatly increased my awareness of myself as a leader. From the outset the questions posed in the VHLP made me reflect on a deeper level.

Powerful insights for clear action emerged for me as a result. StageShift coaching and the VHLP adds a different layer to leadership development that supports leaders and their  organisations to add greater value to their stakeholders, communities and employees. "

Hi, I'm Dr Antoinette Braks,

Founder of StageSHIFT.

I enable Senior Executives and their Teams become much more effective business leaders quickly. They learn to rise above systemic complexity to master their inner self, find their voice, develop strategic focus, scale their business, and lead a more fulfilling life. Clients have doubled their Leadership Effectiveness in 1-2 years, doubled their People Engagement from 30% to 60% in 6-months, and one client even doubled their Business Revenues after just 3 months! 

In terms of credentials, I am a Master Certified Executive Coach with over 8,000 hours of Individual, Group and Team Coaching Experience with Senior Executives and Coaches following a 30-year global corporate career including leadership roles with Shell and Korn Ferry.

I hold a PhD in Leadership Psychology, an MBA from London Business School, and an evolutionary Alchemist mindset. I distilled a systemic, holistic, dynamic fast track in Vertical Development to Synergist and beyond, published in Executive Coaching in Strategic Holistic Leadership (McGraw Hill 2020), and was honoured to win the CEO Award for Leadership Coaching 2020.

My career has always been important to me. I’ve been a bit of a crusader. This has enabled me to excel and also got me into hot water from time to time. I've learned how to bridge opportunity with reality, to align my passions, principles and purpose with the deeply transformative and systemic work I do with people. 

More than 50 highly qualified and equally committed and experienced Executive Coaches with international corporate careers behind them, have become certified as Transformative StageSHIFT Coaches. Located all around the world, we offer the distinct advantage of the mature Synergist or Alchemist Mindset.

"Antoinette Braks' brilliant work, supported by her research, has focused on a pivotal arc in the developmental spectrum - the capacity of our leaders and coaches to take a mature, 4th Perspective. She has accessed the most salient aspects of different developmental models to create an effective, practical and grounded approach for guiding those who are ready, opening their eyes to the next generation of coaching and leading. This is much needed in a world that is hungry for new eyes that will see what is not yet seen, and heal hidden dilemmas that have not yet been identified."

- Terri O'Fallon, STAGES Global Thought Leader

"In these trying times of an unprecedented global health crisis, the smooth day-to-day running of civic affairs is disrupted. Thus, it is more urgent than ever before that mature leaders are at the helm of societies and corporations. As the speed and reach of global change and challenge in all areas of life is increasing, it becomes vital that more people develop the ability to take multiple perspectives, think systemically, consider the long-term effects of decisions and base them on the best available scientific evidence. This book offers a path to help leaders acquire these later stage characteristics."

- Susanne Cook-Greuter, STAGES Pioneer

"If executive coaching supports the transformation from Achievist to Synergist as this book lays out, it will become much more than the support towards achieving the next goal on the career ladder. It will instead become a transformational dialogue: a holistic path that can humanize our world."

- Reinhard Stelter, Psychology Prof. Copenhagen University. Author 3rd Gen Coaching

"This is a much-needed research-based book that shares crucial tools and techniques for coaches that are proven to move clients through the levels of developmental maturity."

- Maureen Metcalf, CEO Innovative Leadership Institute
