Antoinette is one of only three Thought Leaders I know who credibly and passionately integrates business and spirituality. It’s rare, it’s profound, and it’s much needed in the world today.

Her brilliant intellect, fearless consulting, coaching and OD skills, have generated a great suite of offerings for coaches, OD consultants, and of course the senior-most leaders in organisations, who want to be a part of creating a healthy future with regenerative business practices.

- Emma Pearson, Transformative StageSHIFT Leadership Coach and Consultant

It has been a true privilege to have Antoinette as my guide, coach and teacher along this journey. She is one of the most extraordinary human beings I have met.

An inspiring person with a remarkably sharp intellect, lots of love, tons of professional experience combined with an even more remarkable wisdom and spiritual consciousness. I guess that's how words become poetic, and experiences become magical. I am honoured to be part of her community.

- Thomas Bjerkhede, Transformative StageSHIFT Leadership Coach and Consultant

Antoinette's profound capacity to inspire developmental movement in individuals, teams and the wider community is remarkable. She is part of a class of brilliant, humble human beings, who invite you to fully meet yourself, both your shadows and unfolding potential, simply by their presence and capacity to hold that space.

Through her unique, well-researched body of work, she enables leaders to integrate business and human development in such a way that we all win: our planet, our communities, and our businesses.

- Jacqueline van Paassen, Transformative StageSHIFT Leadership Coach and Consultant

I feel and believe strongly that this is ‚Äúthe real deal‚ÄĚ 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 more conscious self that evolves in embodied leadership presence, leading directly into culture change.

- Paul Smith, Transformative StageSHIFT Executive Coach

Through her collaborative, uplifting and deeply thought provoking approach, Antoinette challenged me to enquire deeply into my own development, and articulate concepts and ideas that were just beyond my reach. It lifted my consciousness to another level. If you aspire to transformative change, Antoinette's work is brilliant - and the world needs more of it! 

- Heather Monro, Transformative StageSHIFT Leadership Coach

I will be forever grateful to Antoinette for enabling me to fully grasp the vastness, importance and grandness of vertical development, yet making it easy to start infusing and transforming my own work with clients. Catch her program if you can - it might be the most uplifting decision in your life.

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, 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

Working with Antoinette was an enriching learning experience, and the outcomes were fantastic! She impressed as an expert in leadership and the development of personal power. Her style is thought provoking and challenging, yet informal, adaptable, encouraging and fun!

Whilst I thought some of her ideas were outside the box, Antoinette's guiding questions and insights helped me to find my "voice". The fluidity of our conversations sparked off many new ideas and paths to follow. It was a truly fulfilling experienceI

- Executive Director, Global Investment Bank

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 revolutionised my thinking and, most importantly, my actions.

Antoinette has a unique ability to recognise, understand and explain complex leadership issues. Attuning my inner self and harnessing my authenticity to be more innovative and strategic awoke the inner warrior in me as a leader of my organization.

- CEO, Social Services Sector

When I first met Antoinette, I was fatigued, stressed at work and not enjoying life. In the very first meeting, the underlying issues were exposed. She shed light on my life and revealed things that I simply had not seen or understood. Her positive, forward-looking approach made me feel optimistic.

Antoinette helped me work through changes in my organizational structure to enable me to focus on the higher strategic issues I enjoy. And most importantly, she addressed my whole-of-life progression, not just my work-life.

The StageSHIFT Program is unique in that it takes a holistic approach to transformation. Antoinette is a collaborative intuitive whose depth of knowledge in leadership development is unsurpassed. In a short period of time, she has galvanized the organization in a way that is remarkable.

She has clear insight into what drives behaviours in the workplace and how to make momentous changes in perspective. Her strong strategic focus, business acumen and gracious understanding of people mean you will gain far more than you expect! Did I say there was a whiff of culture change in the air? There is a gale force wind blowing and the organization and people are the ultimate winners!

- Anne Cosgrove, Executive Director People and Culture

Antoinette was an engaging, skilful, 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 new course and getting us going!

- Pat Richards, CEO Shared Business Services Company

Antoinette instigated a terrific collaboration with us by leading an invigorating 2-day Offsite for our new Executive Team to set our Strategic Direction and Leadership Culture.

She then designed and led a CONFIDENT Leaders Program that enabled the Top 75 leaders become more self-aware and develop the courageous authenticity and team accountability to lift our performance.

Her broad strategic perspective and deep insights into mindfulness, emotional intelligence and personal power stimulated a significant shift in our ability to collaborate with our business partners and build a thriving sustainable agricultural sector.

I took up coaching with Antoinette to become more strategic and confident. Her fast-paced approach mixing theory and practical advice was extremely helpful. I always looked forward to our meetings because I knew that I would learn something new and useful.

I now have a framework to approach strategic issues and many tools and techniques to draw on so I can hold my own in a senior executive environment. I would not have thought this possible a few years ago. Group Executive Director HSE
