Our 12-month Certification Program will teach you ...

the evidence-based 8-Step System to Synergist Leadership Development for the individual Self and to Green/Teal for the collective System using our RADAR Vertical Learning Methodology. By developing the knowhow and experiencing your own evolution, you'll be able to guide clients in new transformative ways that lead to extraordinary accelerated outcomes.

Our Transformative Coaching Certification in Vertical Leadership Development comprises:

  • Extensive online videos and 20p notes with associated articles for each of the 8 Modules.
  • 2 Live 110-min Discovery Dialogues with Dr Antoinette Braks to cover concept, content and individual case studies for each Module - you help to set the Agenda.
  • A pre-arranged Peer Collaboration in dyads and triads for you to collaborate on your Masterpieces-in-Progress with different fellow participants throughout the year.
  • An Assignment for each of the 8 Modules returned to you with reflections from Antoinette.

Past participants have described the Program as a uniquely enriching experience in terms of the breadth of information shared and the depth of conversation held during Discovery Dialogues.

"The Program was indeed transformative. Through her collaborative, uplifting and deeply thought-provoking approach, Antoinette challenged me to enquire deeply and articulate concepts and ideas that were just beyond my reach. It lifted my consciousness to another level. Her work is brilliant!"

- Heather Monro, Transformative Executive Coach

"Without her firm, generous, friendly, thought-provoking, heart-opening and soul-freeing guidance, I wouldn't be where I am today: totally on purpose with a big mind and open heart. Antoinette is the most aspirational, knowledgeable and loving leader I have come across. She is the go-to guide in VLD!"

- Sharifah Raudhah AlQudsy, Transformative Executive Coach

"I feel and believe strongly that this is 'the real deal' in executive leadership development. As a humble attempt, I would say that it is unrivalled in its blend of science and applied wisdom, and in the inner conscious self that evolves in embodied leadership presence, leading directly into culture transformation."

- Paul Smith, Transformative Executive Coach & Consultant

In The Next 12 Months, You Could…

  • Finally let go of the past and shape the future
  • Build a mature Synergist Coaching Presence
  • Enable clients to realize amazing outcomes.

Our proven Vertical Systemic Holistic approach makes all the difference. It generates rapid momentum. Create space for growth, expand your inner consciousness, and develop a systemic mindset. We’ll cover it all in the Certification Program.

The Series of 8 Modules are ...



Build the Systemic Strategic Scaffolding to facilitate your own and your client's aspirational intent to re-imagine their place in the world, build a more conscious sustainable business, and co-create an open expansive space for conscious vertical growth at all levels in the organization.

  • Visionary Purpose
  • Evolutionary Values
  • Team EQUIP Scorecards

The power of INTENTION catapults Vertical Development and the Systemic Strategic Scaffolding uplifts team accountability throughout the organization.



Explore the interweaving concepts of time and energy to significantly uplift your creative productivity and that of strategic leaders and their teams. By orchestrating engagement, streamlining work, and leveraging neuroscience, there is a magical shift in ingenuity and team engagement.

  • Dynamic Operating Rhythm to double creative productivity
  • Value Creation Streams beyond Position Descriptions
  • Liberating Meeting Agendas to create radical accountability

Enjoy moving into the flow of emergence with a mind free of distractions and focused on important strategic priorities from a mature 4th Perspective.



We turn inwards to cultivate our mindset and heartset, in relation to positive psychology, emotional awareness and resonance, conscious mindfulness, and wellbeing. We review and reframe internal voices and default responses while cultivating the gifts we share to build respectful relationships.

  • How to cultivate mindset and self-expression
  • The value of emotional dissonance and resonance
  • Identifying shadow and developing trust in relationships 

Our systemic 4th Perspective revises the significance of our emotional ripple effect. By becoming aware of mood as a contagious virus, we uplift culture.



While the sabotaging effect of the reactive amygdala needs conscious regulation, we can transcend emotional drama by resolving and healing personal shadow at 4th Perspective. This frees us from the distracting inner voices of our disparate selves and leads to a calm, clear, and open mind.

  • Emotional triggers, transference and throw-away lines
  • The G-R-I-E-F Shadow Resolution Process
  • Collective ancestral and cultural shadow

Identifying, resolving and healing shadow at source is an essential part of the journey at 4th Perspective and critical in Transformative Vertical Coaching.

This Program is especially suited to you if you're an experienced Executive Coach or a Senior Executive moving into Coaching, and you're interested in the Transformation of Self and System.  StageSHIFT Coaches work through and with Senior Leaders to evolve the whole.

By leading the implementation of the Systemic Strategic Scaffolding to create a new upper level in the organization, lift each subsequent level and create open expansive space for collaborative High Trust Team Performance, you and your executive clients grow organically as systemic transforming Synergist leaders.

This creates the traction for the systemic evolution of the interconnected business ecosystem.



Undertake a Vertical Holistic Life Review to understand your history, reframe the narrative, redesign your identity, and shape a new destiny. We set the context of storytelling for deeper transformative meaning making, drawing on interpersonal dynamics and universal archetypes.

  • Stories as Meaning-Making Learning Vehicles
  • The Heroic Journey through 4th Perspective
  • Stories of the past, in the present and for the future

Elevated interpretation and resonant imagination have the power to reforge memory and history to renew identity and destiny in profound ways.



The capacity to set and hold values-based standards, boundaries and priorities to create psychological safety for self and others is only found at mature Synergist. Taking responsibility for culture  increases authentic conscious engagement, shared vulnerability, and collaborative innovation.

  • Standards in contrast to Expectations and Rules
  • Ethical Standards through the Stages of Development
  • Holding Courageous Caring Conversations

Effective Synergist Leaders hold the space for respectful relationships while voicing the truth and implications of systemic bias to inspire real change. 



Articulate your Voice to give the highest expression to your intrinsic purpose in life and business, and similarly, to guide your executive clients. We review the structure and tenor of presentations from Ted Talks to Conferences so you can create our own Unique Living Signature Presentation.

  • Allow your Personal Story to bring life to your Presence
  • The 12 P's of Passionate Purposeful Presentations
  • Inspire, inform and invite your audience to join you.

The courage to step up into and stand strong with our own Voice in the business ecosystem is another distinctive capacity of the mature Synergist. 



This Module extends Synergist leadership to the wider business ecosystem to proactively build momentum across a broad stakeholder coalition including community interests to realize long-term sustainable outcomes for current and future generations.

  • Explore the wider socio-economic business ecosystem
  • Lead collaborative distributed stakeholder engagement
  • Build multi-party coalitions for cross-cultural innovation.

It's no longer enough to act alone with partial responsibility for global issues. Generating synergy with all parties will yield integrated long term solutions.
