Personal statement
'Much of the work that I do with individuals and organisations is borne of a dream to see entire generations leading and living with self-worth and self-esteem – consciously living the uniqueness of all of our passions, our purpose and our highest possibilities for ourselves, our families, our teams, organisations and ultimately, our planet. Learning the skills and practices of leading and living with self-worth and esteem is truly transformative. In changing and deepening the relationship with ourselves, we will naturally change our relationship with our partners, family, work and work colleagues...and ultimately with the life and reality we create for ourselves. In this way you serve as a beacon to encourage others to live the enormity of all that they are, and so Movements of Mastery begin...'

Bronwen is passionate about the area of self-esteem and the impact that this has on leadership behaviour and the development of healthy organisational cultures. She continues to break ground in this area and pay her learning forward as this remains an area of psychology and Executive Coaching that has immense impact on achieving results through the coaching intervention but for which there are few tools to assist managers and leaders.

As a coach Bronwen favours an appreciate inquiry, cognitive behavioural and holistic approach which focuses on the building self-awareness and focusing on leveraging off individual's strengths as well as understanding the strengths of those around oneself. She is particularly skilled in building self-esteem, stress management and EQ competencies with a focus on tracking the emotion, thought, behaviour continuum and understanding the impact of values on behaviour. She tends to ground her coaching process with selective and value adding psychometrics to accelerate the self-awareness and understanding.
