This book provides the LEADERSHIP OPERATING SYSTEM to achieve exactly that.


If you are focused on cultivating a psychologically safe and high performing team, this book is for you.

It is a step by step 'field guide' to leadership and team success.

It will resonate and is highly relatable. Plus, it's easy to read.

One client shared ‘I read it on a Saturday, in two sittings’.

You’ll get an entire roadmap with practical ways, to set aside the individual, leadership and team habits and behaviours that aren’t working for you.

Instead, you’ll have a new way of living and leading; clear on how to set up the conditions for your team to thrive without you having to push for the results.


I have decades of experience across disciplines and across the globe, including my training in both executive coaching and psychotherapy. I have guided leaders, like you, to develop trust, credibility and highly effective team environments.

The system inside the book is a product of that experience.

The case studies and stories I use inside this book are from real work with clients, as well as my own lived experience.

Your own results will depend on your willingness to do the work.

If you’re not open to self-reflection, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.

Nothing in this book is ‘easy’.

With that said..it is SIMPLE.

Let me show you.

Many leaders I work with have a common story..

For many years I have had the privilege of supporting smart, brave and dedicated leaders to improve their ability to work effectively with others to produce results.

Witnessing these transformations galvanised me to put down the steps that I have seen work again and again.

Many leaders I work with have a common story. They have worked hard to get to where they are. Yet they've hit a snag and are struggling to produce their best results.

It could be that they:

  • - have lost their zest for leading
  • - are missing out on promotion opportunities
  • - feel overwhelmed, or burnt out, or are on the cusp of burnout
  • - are frustrated by those around them – their manager, their peers, their stakeholders – and the relationship had frayed
  • - feel confused about whether the choices they were making were the right ones
  • - are receiving feedback that their behaviour was being portrayed in a negative light felt their team were disengaged or demotivated.

They know they have reached a stumbling block but they don’t know what is causing it or how to untangle themselves from it.

They try to pedal harder, faster and longer to keep ahead of the curve and end up feeling overwhelmed and frustrated, unclear about what to prioritise or how to set their team up for success.

Does this sound familiar?

There is no cookie cutter solution of course, and no two leaders are the same.

The approach I offer is a framework, and it starts with trust. The central piece of work these leaders do is to build their capacity to connect – with themselves and with others. This is an essential starting point because:

  • - connection is the key to cultivating relationships
  • - relationships are the key to collaboration
  • - collaboration is fundamental if you want successful results.

You can’t bypass relationships to get to results. Not in the long term. Not sustainably.

Simple? Yes. Easy? No. Or at least it takes some practice. And it takes a process.

My process is The Pinnacle of Presence framework and incorporates three distinct domains — Inner Presence, Leadership Presence and Team Presence.

With a focus on leading your team to success,

I have expanded the concept of presence into three distinct domains:

  • Inner Presence – Being self-empowered to fully accept and believe in yourself, confident to show others the real you.
  • Leadership Presence – Projecting your Inner Presence outwards, signalling that you have what it takes to lead others.
  • Team Presence – Cultivating an environment that empowers teams to collaborate, learn and innovate.

Or to put it more simply:

Inner Presence – why you do it

Leadership Presence – how you do it

Team Presence – doing it together

The presence you bring to yourself and your teams can be the greatest gift to yourself and those you lead.

If you are feeling overwhelmed by the relentless demands of your work, presence will help you feel calm and confident.

If you are feeling frustrated by your working relationships or by missing out on promotion opportunities, it will help you generate connection and credibility.

If your teams are fragmented and underperforming, it will help you cultivate collaboration and creativity.

You have the ‘secret weapon’. YOU!

Do you feel you have to keep working harder and pedalling faster to succeed as a leader?

Are you frustrated by fragmented teams that are pulling in different directions?

Is it always you coming up with the solutions?

This is a common scenario for leaders in today’s fast-paced, hyper-connected world. But it doesn’t have to be this way. You have the ‘secret weapon’. YOU!

You may not be able to change the relentless demands of leadership, but you can change what you bring to them and how you deal with them. The secret? Presence. Your ability to bring your best self to the role of leadership.

In this book I share the entire framework I use successfully with my clients, and show you how to be your own coach.
