Dr Antoinette J Braks

Hi, I'm Antoinette Braks

Founder of StageSHIFT

I grew up in New Zealand and then travelled the world while building a career in People & Culture, Leadership Development, and Executive Coaching. While rising to the challenge of becoming a more effective strategic leader, I invested lots of time and energy into becoming a more conscious person.

It turned out that this combination of strategic holistic leadership activated my vertical growth and enabled me to confidently lead Culture Evolutions for organizations, and coach other Executive Leaders to do the same.

I've distilled this transformation in vertical development into the StageSHIFT Coaching Methodology for Executive Coaches and Senior Leaders. It enables you to set purposeful aspirations, orchestrate engagement, resolve shadow, uplift culture, redefine identity, and cultivate an inspiring leadership presence.

You too can use this proven systemic approach to unlock your potential as a Coach or Leader, and start leading collaborative evolutionary transformation to co-create a more sustainable, healthy, and equitable world while enjoying a more purposeful, meaningful, and fulfilling life.
