“Initially, I wasn’t sure whether career coaching was going to help me, but working with Nada has really dramatically increased my self-awareness and given me a much clearer sense of direction and purpose. It has given me the confidence to express my personality and to use my strengths to my advantage. Nada prompted me to think about questions I never would have asked, which helped me to more confidently make a decision to go in a certain direction. It has given me the clarity and confidence to take a risk and free my natural abilities.”
Stuart Edwards Support Manager, IT Services
“I came to Nada under recommendation from a friend. I had a sense of change from my current position was needed, but unable to determine if an industry change or just working environment was best. This also caused an added stress on not only my working life, but also personally as well.
With the tools Nada implements in her programs (personality assessments, various motivational apps), it was quickly determined that a change of environment is all that was needed. One tool in particular named MindPT I've continued to use on a daily basis (even after finishing the program) which helps towards calming and focusing my mind and thoughts; resulting in additional motivation and production for whatever I'm doing that day.
If you find yourself in a situation where you're unsure what the next move is in life (career or otherwise); I believe you'd get benefit working with Nada; she has been in similar situations herself and has the know-how to help. It could just be a simple conversation that's needed for you as well.”
Kistin Gunnis Founder, Professional Women's Lunches, Former Chief Operating Officer, 1Connect Pty Ltd
"Working with Nada created a space for me to step back from life’s busyness and gave me the tools to reassess, to celebrate the achievements and refocus on the big picture and the next step of my professional journey.
It was important to understand my behaviour and reactions to help me stay on top of things by recognising patterns and behaviours. It has also improved my understanding of what I am good at, what I’m not and when to ask for help, also be accepting of that help.
Working with Nada has continued to help me know myself better and also know others. As my business is relationship driven, it will continue to help me understand personality types better and to help others feel more comfortable.
I would recommend Nada to those seeking to reconnect with who they really are and how to be their best, to reassess their career journey and to devise strategies to achieve better alignment in their career.
Nada is empathetic and has both corporate and smaller business experience. Having experienced the diverse dynamics of both, Nada is able to understand her clients’ experience and apply this in her coaching to help her clients.
Nada’s values come through and she creates a supportive environment to set people at ease so they can feel comfortable in opening up in order to achieve breakthroughs."
Nicole McAuliffe Executive Coach and Facilitator
Nada is a compassionate and self-aware coach providing a structured and nurturing environment in which to explore my strengths, passions and purpose.”
Matthew Tisdall Director, GDP Property Services
"Nada’s skills, experience, strong personal character and integrity led to her becoming a trusted business partner in support of my role as sole Director of GDP and in the overall management of the GDP business. As General Manager, Nada’s contributions were paramount to the company’s transition, stabilisation and success during the last two years, both in terms of HR solutions and organisational management. Nada understands the issues and challenges faced by a growing family business. She is able to devise valuable solutions to ensure that effective management and organisational processes are in place to set the business up for best practices and to support long-term success.
I recommend Nada to business leaders looking for support with people management and organisational management solutions."
“I worked with Nada to find direction in my career path for the next decade and to set goals toward those career objectives. Nada helped me to synthesize the noise and helped me to find my direction and to focus on the path. Nada is authentic, exudes a quiet confidence and builds trust, which were all important in making me comfortable to open up, explore and build my self-awareness and career journey.”
Louise Armstrong Director, Health Board Quality and Safety Sub-committee Chairperson
"Even though I had done the MBTI profiling a few years ago, it was good to revisit my personality type and to reconnect with my strengths and preferences after changed employment conditions and in order to reclaim some balance in my life. It gave me the opportunity to draw breath and to analyse and reassess my direction and to decide what I really want to be doing. Having Nada’s skills and expertise in helping me to work through my thought process and asking leading questions was really valuable."
Josh Melvin Engineer
"Nada was able to provide a deeper understanding and insight into my interactions with the world, and how they will affect myself and others.
Through our sessions we were able to identify a number of my core values, and worked to review the impact that potential career opportunities would have on these.
It provided a level of clarity for an important decision, allowing me to continue moving forward in my engineering career.
Definitely someone to have a chat with if you're stuck on a decision."
Alison Fowler Project Coach
"Nada builds trust and is fully present and sincerely cares. I have found Nada to be a good listener and very genuine and attentive. She knows her stuff around the MBTI Personality Types and strengths and is able to present the information in an easy to understand, clear and concise way."
Melissa Say Exploration Geologist
“Nada was a great support during the first few weeks of my redundancy. It was a great opportunity to think about what I wanted to do next and to have that support during that time.
It was great to get positive reinforcement when setting new goals and the encouragement to go for what I really want rather than letting the negative thoughts cloud my ideas and ambitions.
The personal discovery has allowed me to think beyond my current position and has given me some insights into what I could do going forward.”
Sally Tisdall HR Manager, GDP Property Services
"Nada has a wide range of skills and experience in business and people management and in her role she was able to act as a sounding-board and advisor to the Director and as a mentor to myself and younger staff.
Nada recruited and developed some strong key employees and implemented many business solutions during her employment at GDP. Redesigned roles, responsibilities and the organisational structure to better meet changing business needs and to best utilise employee strengths to meet business goals. I recommend Nada to any business looking to enhance their talent management and with problem-solving and business solutions."
