Unleashing human potential.

When people thrive, business does too.

To have truly engaged individuals, high-performing teams and thriving businesses, we need to “humanise” workplaces by focusing on purpose, values and individual needs. Command-and-control leadership cannot deliver the culture employees and customers now expect.

Today, leaders need to put what’s right before what’s the most profitable, grow people as well as the bottom line and build control over themselves, not others.

The time has come for a Leadership Nouveau.

We’ll start by establishing your current situation by using diagnostic tools, interviews and surveys.

Our assessments cover:
360 reviews | Team Alignment | Culture entropy |
Conduct risk Engagement


Where do you want to be and why is it important to you?

Dream – big!

Through a deep dive of questions, we’ll define your goals and tap into your motivations for achieving them. We look at the assessment results to make sure the goals are relevant and achievable in the time frame.

3. ACT

What do we need to do to make this dream happen? Which obstacles need to be removed?

Do the work

Together, we’ll define and execute a 4-to-6 month ‘roadmap’ to help you achieve your goals. We’ll take a partnership approach and travel together through the roadmap. With the “Phone a friend” option, you benefit from 24/7 support.


How far have you come? How can we embed these changes into your new ‘normal’?

Measure your progress

We’ll use the same assessment tools to measure your progress and results. We’ll also look at what worked and why and what can be improved in the next segment of the roadmap.

Changing forever how you lead.

We observe with leaders that they very often have the knowledge surrounding best practice or an idea of how they want to lead, but they just don’t manage to do it or be it. In our approach, we understand that for these leaders, it’s actually a developmental journey, which involves reshaping the mindset behind the feelings and behaviours that are getting in the way. It’s about looking at the inner game that drives the outer game. We focus on building a leader’s cognitive, social and emotional intelligence to give them the tools for lasting change which allow them to be the leader they aspire to.

Delivering Results Through People


One of the best aspects of being independent is affiliating with and doing amazing work with really smart, capable professionals.

Kim Neale


There is a magical force field around the word ‘art’ that can inspire awe in some and intimidate others. I am passionate about using this magical force field to transform organisations and their leadership.

Having worked as a commercial artist, creative director and co-founder of several production companies, I understand what it takes to communicate ideas effectively, both visually and verbally. I leverage arts-based practices to spark creative inspiration with my clients.

Over the years, I have developed a keen interest in psychology and what motivates people.

Growth comes from innovation and if a cell isn’t growing, it’s dying. Herein lies the challenge for most companies today. I am committed to challenging limiting beliefs and unearthing opportunities for individuals and organisations to reach their full potential.

My commercial illustration continues to be represented by Mendola Artists in New York after 15 years of creative collaboration.

Keith Faassen


I am a seasoned financial market professional. I have over 30 years’ experience managing FICC trading and sales teams in global investment banking, finance, broking and advisory roles at a senior executive level.  I have extensive management and risk mitigation experience in the major financial markets of the UK, Europe, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

I have a deep understanding of how financial market institutions operate and understand how short-term incentives with the pressure to perform to achieve unsustainable revenue targets can evolve into severe events of misconduct which ultimately evolve into reputational risk for an organisation.

The combined knowledge, experience and expertise gained in wholesale FICC markets culminated in my appointment to the role of a senior financial markets conduct regulator within ASIC’s Investment Banks Team reporting to the New South Wales Commissioner and Senior Executive Leader, Investment Banks team, and as a member of the senior management team.

It was in this role as part of a specialised team of ex bankers that I was tasked to provide better practice feedback to the major financial institutions both domestic and international on conduct risk frameworks.

I am very qualified to communicate the better practices of conduct and culture.

If you are regulated entity,  then does your organisation need a conduct risk health check?
