The Challenge

Juggling competing demands of business, family, relationships and health can be intense for senior executives.

Add in a major shift, or even just the prospect of one, like a new role, new career or professional and personal curveballs and the reality can be tough.

If these situations aren’t managed well, you can experience the full spectrum of costs on your results, health, energy, relationships, reputations, finances, workplaces and the community.

But what if these periods could be less of a challenge and more of an opportunity for reinvention?

The Opportunity

In periods of intense change, you want to move from:

  1. Overwhelmed by the situation to managing the stress and pressure of the process
  2. Uncertain about the future to having a clear direction and plan
  3. Rudderless to focussed on prioritised next steps
  4. Drained to energised and motivated
  5. Isolated and alone to supported and accountable for your actions
What’s Needed?
  1. Assessment: Understand each your current needs so you can take targeted action immediately.
  2. Plan: Clarify direction, explore opportunities, and identify next steps.
  3. System and Structure: Embed new habits into daily routines to support desired outcomes.
  4. Toolkit: Equip you with evidence based strategies to manage stress and pressure.
  5. Accountability and Support: Get personalised guidance and support to stay focussed and course-correct as needed.
Reinvention Playbook

I’ve developed a personalised, evidence-based playbook to help turn moments of intense change into opportunities for reinvention.

This isn’t just theory – it’s a blend of personal experiences, scientific insights, and proven strategies that have helped top performers through major transitions.

What is the Executive Reinvention Program?

It’s a year long executive coaching program to help top performers facing major shifts to reinvent for what comes next.
How does it work?

12 months

  • Kick Off
  • Systems Setup
  • Fortnightly coaching


  • Unlimited 1:1 coach access
  • Unlimited digital tool access
The Outcomes

Through the coaching process, you can expect to learn how to:

  1. Take your tangible and intangible assets and apply them in service of ongoing, meaningful contribution.
  2. Prioritise your time and activities to be physically, cognitively and emotionally present for the moments and people that matter most.
  3. Come through this period motivated, focussed and energised.

Ultimately, it’s about bringing out your best for what comes next.

Who has it worked for?

As well as CEOs and senior executives in global companies, this playbook has worked for business owners, pro athletes, tech founders, elite military, non-profit leaders, investors and more.

I’ve worked with organisations such as Google, Rio Tinto, Australian Institute of Sport, Department of Defence and many more.

Frequently Asked Questions

I get it. The plate is already full. How on earth will you find more time to do the program, let alone implement it?

The truth is there is never going to be a perfect time or date when your plate is clear, the to do list has stopped, the competing demands are quiet. You and I both know this is a myth. It’s procrastination in its most seductive form.

Even if you have a date in mind – long service leave, business sale, resignation date etc – do you know for sure you’ll be alive to see it? What if you don’t make it? What if you knew you weren’t going to make it? How would that change your decision making today?

And what is the cost of you continuing to act in the way you’re currently acting on you, your health, your loved ones? Or what is the opportunity cost of what you’re NOT doing right now? What are you missing out on? What contribution are you NOT making?

After decades of service, it’s time to put your own name on the priority list and commit to the changes you need to make.

And the only time for that is right now.

When it comes to implementing, we don’t have heaps of work to do. We just have the work that matters most. We’ll be ruthless with prioritisation and develop strategies that increase the value of the time you’re already spending.

And you’ll only get what you need, not a firehose of content. In my experience, a shortage of information is nearly never the problem.

To bring others along for the journey, first you need to be able to communicate it.

We’ll build a clear plan together so you:

  1. Have the transparency you need so you can get input from the people most important to you.

  2. Get the buy in you need to make the changes you want and pursue the opportunities that matter most to you.

  3. Can share the celebration, appreciation and support.

So many times, it’s the people we love most who suffer the cost of us not being all of who we need and want to be.

And they’re very often the ones who stand to benefit most.

If they don’t want to come with you, then you may find yourself looking in the mirror at a decision you may have been putting off for a long time.

What truly matters to you? Who truly matters to you? How can you make a decision in alignment with that right now? What does that say about your relationship if they don’t want to support you?

I’m not going to sugar coat this. It can be hard work at times. I’ve had to sit with this too through my own shifts.

Eyeballing the decisions and change that we’ve been avoiding can be deeply uncomfortable. But often that’s a sign of importance too because the more we care, the more likely that the tough stuff might show up.

Ultimately, all you can do is be clear with yourself on what matters so that you can be clear with others.

Then they can make the choice to come with you or not.

The short answer is to get crystal clear on what is important to you first and then align your time, attention and activity.

Will you nail this first time round? No. It will take time and experimentation. That’s why the program is 12 months. You’ll test and learn and iterate many times before you’ll feel completely comfortable with the shift.

When top performers are moving from high stimulation environments of business, military, sport etc, sometimes the hardest thing in the world is not to go and climb a mountain, but to sit on the floor and connect with their kids.

The invitation is not to just “fill” your day, it’s to design your days, weeks, months and years to prioritise the people and contributions that matter most to you.

Absolutely not.

I’ve coached people who had already made the decision to leave a business or a role. When they reconnected to what mattered to them and recognised the opportunity to express that through their current circumstances, they reversed the decision and went all in on their current position.

Here’s a case study about that exact situation.

This is not a “How can I start a business?” program.

This is a “Who am I truly and how can I express that every day in as many areas as possible?” program.

You creating a business may be an outcome of the process, but it is entirely up to you.

Great. I actually like having clients that are using those services because I’m not psychologist and don’t play one in my coaching or online. They have a very important role to play in helping you.

My focus with you is on the present and future. Where are you headed? How do you want to walk the path? And how does that translate to the actions you take today?

There is no single guide or methodology or framework that 100% of the time works for everyone. Every person’s context is different therefore the solutions are different.

The opportunity is to integrate any lessons you’re learning elsewhere into the work we undertake together.

Hell no. I don’t have all the answers. I have my own coaches and learning going on all the time!

Our work together is about understanding who you are and the paths you may choose to take. We’ll integrate those lessons and meaningfully and methodically make sure you’re putting the most important new ideas and discoveries into action to have the impact you need in order for you to make the contribution only you can make.

The future has always been unpredictable. The only control we have is what we choose to do right now. Your ability to be hit by the uncertainties and come back to the present and your choice of response is the entire game.

That’s why the answer is building psychological flexibility and an adaptable plan/roadmap driven by what truly matters to you.

It’s also why the plan is a living thing. It is an ongoing exploration of expansion, opportunities and directions that can be tested (without betting the house) and either written off or doubled down on depending on results.

Buddha said life is suffering. I agree. There is no way to face and then go through a major shift without experiencing tough stuff and setbacks. To pretend otherwise would be complete nonsense.

But the most important thing I can help you with is to build the toolkit that will enable you to absorb the hits and recognise the choice you can make right now to move towards purpose, values, the people and things that matter most to you.

And that includes dusting off when things don’t go your way.

This means we need to map out the longest game possible and help you to understand how your choices today are either moving you towards or away from that.

My question back, is why haven’t you already? If it was just a matter of thinking it through – which I assume you’ve probably tried – you’d have already done it. More thinking isn’t going to clarify this for you.

Repeated investigation and refinement following a structured process is the way to help get you from your first draft to deeply connected. Using a coach helps the reflection process and can accelerate the process. The systems and structures ensure you’ll do what it takes to get there.

It’s for top performers facing a major shift personally or professionally and ready to go all in on the process to navigate the change.

To take the science and theory and put it into practice.

To call for help when they need it.

As I’ve said, it’s worked for elite military, global execs, business owners, tech founders, pro athletes and more.

If that sounds like you, let’s talk.

No. I’ve tried this in varying formats. The most exceptional results come from a long term commitment not to me, but to yourself and the people that matter most to you.

If you thought you were going to nail everything in a month, you would have already made that change.

This program is not just to get you fired up to make the change, it’s about doing the reps that will actually make it happen. It’s about the compound effect of daily action taken over time to turn ideas into reality.

Anything else is just another hit. That’s what YouTube is for.

When a handful of evidence based tools align with prioritisation and diary that’s when you know the changes will last.

I use tools and strategies from the science of Psychological Flexibility.

I then use proven agile frameworks such as Kanban and Scrum (don’t worry if you don’t know these things yet) to operationalise purpose, values and goals to enable you to explore into uncertainty.

The good old diary helps reinforce daily operating habits.

A word of warning though – strategies and toolkits are all great stuff to learn, but ultimately nearly all of the value is created in practice. That’s where we’ll spend most of our time.

You’re already creating a legacy. Are you happy with it? The opportunity in this program is to design and leave one that you’re proud of, rather than leaving it to chance and hoping you get your legacy right.

The competitive advantage is the development of an internalised framework for decision making, motivation and energy management.

When people are living and working in alignment with their values and in service of the people that matter most, their purpose and a meaningful sense of contribution, the discretionary effort dials up, commitment dials up, obstacles become paths forward.

When this is combined with energy and priority management through deliberate diary and prioritisation design, the ability of participants to stay ultra focussed on the highest leverage work becomes a compounding advantage.

Probably not 🙂 Chess I love. I’ve never fly fished – I’d prefer to surf or hike mountains. But if you want that on your roadmap? That’s entirely your choice!
