Wanting to Lead with Confidence and Clarity?

Looking to communicate effectively, delegate confidently, and lead your team to success? Leadership Coaching can help, let’s talk!

Do any of these Leadership Challenges Sound Familiar?

  • Do you find it challenging to effectively communicate with your team and resolve conflicts? Are you finding it hard to convey your ideas, feel heard, or navigate difficult conversations
  • Is poor time management and the inability to delegate tasks weighing you down? Are you feeling overwhelmed by too many demands and finding it hard to let go?
  • Are you finding it hard to empower your team, and build a culture of trust and accountability?
  • Is self-doubt and imposter syndrome holding you back, causing you question your abilities and making you feel like you’re not enough?
  • Do you feel frustrated with team members who lack initiative, accountability and consistent performance?

With over 30 years of experience and an MBA, I understand the unique challenges you face as a leader. I provide a safe and open environment for you to express your concerns, and together, we’ll explore practical solutions to help you lead with confidence.

Whether you’re struggling with communication, time management, team empowerment, or self-doubt, I can help you develop the skills and strategies needed to overcome these obstacles and achieve success. I explore each of these issues in a bit more depth below.

“Top of her field!”

I have worked with many coaches and have found Fiona to be at the top of her field. Fiona has an extensive tool kit of tricks (all good!) to help you remove emotional blocks, get past the excuses and achieve goals. I highly recommend her.

“She Empowers You”

When I met Fiona, I genuinely loved what I do, but I was exhausted. I was not coping with the pressure I’d put on myself to be everything to everyone (but myself). During my first session with Fiona, we explored a ‘sleep hack’. That night, I had one of the best sleeps I’d had in a very long time. Sleeping better immediately helped shift my mindset into a more effective space. She empowers you with the knowledge and tools you need to conquer your ‘thing’, and deliver the greatest, long-term impact. Six months on and I am so proud of the version of ‘me’ that I have grown into. I am more effective overall — a better founder, creative, mentor, friend, daughter, and partner. I have a clearer vision of my future, and what exactly is driving the legacy that I want to build.

“Best coach I ever had!”

Fiona was the best coach, mentor, and trainer I ever had. She always encouraged me, helped me gain clarity and direction, and provided great strategies. She has a wealth of knowledge about business and life and I loved how she used stories to explain concepts. It really helped me to see things from different perspectives. If you want to be your best self Fiona will definitely help you achieve your goals.

“She always believes in you”

Fiona is one of the most inspiring people I have met. She makes you feel like she always believes in you and that you can achieve anything you set your heart and mind to. Fiona is very open, honest and approachable. She never judges you but instead helps you see things from new and different angles. I loved the tools and techniques she shared with me and if you haven’t already connected with Fiona I strongly recommend you do.

Fiona is a very talented mentor and presenter, and her help was invaluable not only to open my own business in Australia, but also to gain the confidence I needed at that moment to get started. Thanks, Fiona!

“A Genuine Game-Changer”

Working with Fiona Spence as my life coach was truly transformative. Her approach to Advanced Conversational Hypnosis differed from my expectations; instead of a traditional technique, we engaged in a conversation that unveiled the power of my subconscious mind and its role in achieving my goals. Fiona’s professional yet deeply empathetic manner created a safe and supportive environment, starting with small steps and celebrating each success. This experience has given me the confidence to navigate challenges and build momentum in my life. I’m grateful for Fiona’s expertise in Advanced Conversational Hypnosis – a genuine game-changer.

I never expected to see results after just one session of coaching. But after a 50-minute session with Fiona I had made my mind up on a decision I had been debating for months. Within 24 hours I had taken action and was making progress towards my goals. I am now more self-aware than ever before, I have knowledge about myself that will help me find joy in all areas of life.

This is all thanks to the power of coaching and Fiona’s ability to pick up on what you are really saying, not the BS you are telling yourself. Her non-judgemental, action-orientated approach will leave you motivated and ready to make lasting change in your life.

Crumbling under pressure

I was struggling with the business and we had just switched from being a startup to scale up. Days had become endless, I was exhausted and not feeling like I was making an impact on the business.

With Fiona, we uncovered the issues that were holding me back and came up with appropriate solutions to them. She helped me see what makes me tick and to use that to better navigate the chaos of life. I sleep soundly at the end of each day, am content, can point to the value that energy has created and love watching the business grow. If anyone needs any help with their mindset, career or any part of their life, I would definitely recommend!

“I am finally at peace with who I am”

After our session had finished, I felt much more relaxed and confident than I had in years. A wonderful peaceful feeling of being deeply connected with myself. This created a calm yet strong feeling of a more relaxed and certain mindset for myself.

Since our session I have retained this strong belief in myself and I no longer feel the need to seek approval from others. A key moment for me was when a good friend commented it was great to see me looking so confident. I can definitely say as a result of the wonderful session and experience I had with Fiona I am finally at peace with who I am.

Gained a New Lease of Life for my Business

I have in last 4 weeks taken Fiona on as my mindset coach. I have always understood the importance of having your mindset steadfast and focused if you wish to be successful and create results. Yet, I kept falling back into the negative and self-limiting behaviours. Fiona is keeping me accountable, focused and steadfast on my goals and self-belief. I cannot believe how in just a few short weeks I have transformed. I am so pumped, excited and have found a new lease of life for my business. I can’t wait to see where I will be in another 4 weeks, 4 months, 4 years from now. Thank you Fiona

Cutting through the BS!

Working with Fiona is a mixture of pleasure, learning, insight and even at times, tough love. Fiona is extremely approachable and empathetic yet manages to cut through the b***s*** to tell it like it is. Some life coaches are really good at making it look like they are listening, Fiona really does. Even more, she understands and extracts the key issues that matter and helping you break free of what it is that is blocking you helps you build motivation to get you moving again. Fiona is also an inspiring and motivating speaker and thought leader who draws on her years of martial arts practice being able to share tools and tips to help you win in this game called life. If you haven’t already met Fiona I highly recommend you pick up the phone and give her a call. She is really welcoming and easy to talk to.

Do you want to Empower your Team and Lead with Confidence?

Imagine confidently leading and empowering your team to achieve their best. How much more impact could your team have if you were the one motivating them and driving them to success?

If you’re not there yet you may be struggling to lead a team that’s failing to perform consistently, lacks initiative and urgently needs an injection of inspiration.

I have coached numerous leaders issues such as:

  • Finding it hard to trust team members fearing their poor performance will reflect on you
  • Micromanaging tendencies making it hard to delegate and let go of control
  • Feeling overwhelmed by the responsibilities of leadership
  • The challenge of building a collaborative team dynamic that fosters autonomy and initiative

Are you ready to conquer your leadership challenges and lead with confidence? To discover how to empower your team by trusting and delegating more?

As your leadership coach my job is to help you to uncover the barriers that are holding you and your team back. I can support you with tried and trusted strategies and solutions, and empower you to lead with confidence so that you can inspire, motivate and steer your team to achieve success.

Finding it Hard to Delegate and Manage Your Time?

  • Are you finding it challenging to delegate tasks effectively, often feeling like it’s quicker to do things yourself?
  • Do you struggle to prioritise tasks and manage your time efficiently amongst numerous demands?
  • Perhaps you fear that delegating could lead to mistakes or a loss of control over outcomes.

These common challenges can leave you overwhelmed and stretched thin, impacting both your productivity, wellbeing and leadership.

Learning to delegate effectively isn’t just about offloading tasks, it’s about empowering your team and freeing up your own time to focus on high-impact activities. By mastering time management and refining your delegation skills, you can regain control over your workload and achieve a more balanced approach to leadership.
