"Antoinette Braks shows us how executive coaching can become a transformational dialogue; a holistic path that can humanise our world.”
—Reinhard Stelter, Professor of Coaching Psychology, University of Copenhagen
“It is more vital than ever before that leaders develop the ability to take multiple perspectives, think systemically, consider the long-term effects of decisions and base them on the best of available scientific evidence – this book offers a path to help leaders acquire these later stage characteristics.”

SPIRIT & SHADOW WORK
Most coaching approaches focus on strengths, soft skills, emotional intelligence and developmental goals. These strategies are useful but not sufficient to expedite the shift to Synergist.
StageSHIFT Coaching invites aspirational intent and resolves shadow at source to eliminate emotional triggers and appreciate interpersonal psychodynamics to enable inspiring, systemic, visionary, synergistic leadership.
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 guides the strategic leader to transform that part of the workplace for which they're responsible to generate a highly empowering, values-based, psychologically safe and respectful diverse culture.
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 form of 3rd generation coaching. It is a holistic transformative coaching partnership including guidance through leading questions and shared insights with a later stage coach who has the presence to hold expansive emergent space.
